Man, sounds like you all are having a great time with a good year.. When you’re on em your on em it sounds like.. I won’t be up there for 3 more weeks so It will be mid to later in the season, save some ducks for me… I have been keeping an eye on migration reports (they are as honest as the people writing them I know)and it seems people are reporting low numbers. It looks like it’s gonna be low to mid 20’s in the mornings and mid 40’s in the afternoons when I’m up there according to the extended forecast. I’ll be in the far south eastern part of the state around then Wishek area on the 9th of November for a week so about 20 miles from the SD boarder.. Will there still be birds left you think? I know it will be colder so it looks like field hunting or big water.. I am coming up in my 1986 shaggy wagon DUCKED out RV pulling my truck on a trailer behind my RV so I can’t pull my duck boat.. Would you recommend maybe getting a 10ft jon boat with a trolling motor to throw under my truck on the trailer just in case we have to get on some big water and hunt from the bank so I can get to our spot or am I farting liquid with that idea? We have a house rented if anyone is interested in meeting up and hunting a few days we have there are 4 of us so we have a little room. The house is 30 a night per man.. We will hunt PLOTS and ask permission.. Just opening it up! I personally love the marshy pot holes but those seem to be few from what I’m reading, and probably iced but I have some of my best hunts in Indiana where I am from when there is a thin layer of ice on a marshy spot and you cut a hole.. just want your guys opinion on condition and numbers so I know what to expect… thanks for the input so far men, its been a help… I just cant wait to be on ND soil having a great time hunting even if we don’t get limits every day or not it’s the experience that’s exciting.
When you have spent a missed season in the sandbox of the middle east.. you learn that every hunt, good or bad, is a vacation well worth the time and effort..
