Nonresident Duck Hunter

Postby NB West » Mon Oct 20, 2008 1:48 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm going to be in Oacoma for a guided pheasant hunt and wanted to try to get after some waterfowl while I was there on the 27, 28 Oct. I believe I can only get a license to hunt private land in that unit. I have a layout boat with floating and bigfeet geese decoys but only floating duck decoys. I would think my only option would be to hunt on the walk-in areas in the Lyman and Brule county area. Any particular way to choose a good walk in area to hunt on using just an aerial view map?

Any help would be appreciated.

Might as well mention I'll be in Oacoma, SD. I thought this was a South Dakota Forum, sorry.

You are going to be about 2 months early for the river. But I bet you could find huntable numbers around there. I'd scout a day first before I'd buy a liscence to see what's in the area.

you might want to check on how to get a left over license as well. I don't believe you are able to just buy over the counter anymore--I think you have to apply for left overs now too.
As someone else said, the migration in that area will be much later than the dates you plan. But when I lived there, there were a few birds around the area if you look hard enough.
