I've lived in eastern So Dak for a few years and have been duck hunting there for about 25-30 years.
The farmers/land owners actually do not mind duck hunters. Just make sure to ask and let them know you're duck hunting and are not pheasant hunting and you will have a great time.
As for hunting in late October/November we have found that field hunting has been extremely productive. Most years the northern flight is just about to start around that time (Not Last year though)
We are going out those 2 weekends as well around the De Smet to Willow Lake area, and will be concentrating on picked corn fields with many miles of scouting to get best results.
