Went to ND for the first time this year. Lots of "posted" areas, but plenty of areas to hunt . I drove around the area 2 days before the opener, and no matter which direction I went in, saw plenty of ducks everywhere. Not as many hunters as I thought I would see. Didn't need the small boat I took with me...just needed my waders, and my lab.Had to watch the gas guage though,not many places once you leave town. A 4X4 is almost a must later in the season.... It was well worth the trip out there, and hope to get back there next year.
