Where to start?

Postby Stish85 » Sat Oct 26, 2013 9:59 pm

Hello everyone,


For the past few years I have been hunting south central NoDak. Hunting has been alright but we have just never hit it right. We have just started venturing into field hunting with mixed results. Next year we are looking at pushing our hunt back a week, however this will put us at risk of being out there after freeze up. I was just wondering were in the northern half of SD would be a good place to start looking as a back up. I'm not expecting anyone to give out secret spots or anything maybe just a town or 2 that have good hunting in the vacinity and I can do the leg work from there.

Thanks for your help.

Non resident is a lottery draw. I think the expectation right now is once every three years, don't quote me.

As far as areas, just pick a spot in NE part of state. So much public land to hunt so little vacation time.

Non resident draw success is usually 75%. Where to start? depends on when you're here.

You'll probably want to look at the northern most counties. Pick a town with a hotel and go from there.
