Is it true that duck hunting in North Dakota consists mostly in fields? I'm preparing my duck hunting trip up there and was trying to plan accordingly.

What equipment do I need to bring?

You can get ducks out of the goose decoys in the fields. Scout out the right fields, get permission and you'll do just fine duck hunting up there.

Good luck.

Remember that all of the major roosts aren't protected in North Dakota. If the ducks sleep there during the day...stay away! Otherwise you're burning the ducks for everyone.

Just a duck hunting tip!

What zones in North Dakota have favorable conditions. My buddies are up there and they say that zone one is dry=no water in the potholes. We are going up on friday the 10th and dont want to make a mistake. We have zone one and three on our licenses. Can anyone please tell me of a good area with water please???? Thanks, Duckslayer at [email protected]

Me and two buddies just got back from a trip somewhere near devils lake and we had good success in the fields first morning we got our limit of ducks and canadians by 10 we were even able to choose and wait for green heads. If i was to give a word of advice it would just to make sure you go out the evening before and scout scout scout it makes a big difference.

Yes, it is getting tougher up there.A lot of the local boys dont take too kindly to the non -res because they claim they are shooting the roosts which ive seen both sides do.Im from N.D. and go back every fall for the last 20yrs.and the politics are getting bad.We are fortunate because we have friends and family with posted land,but dont get me wrong,it is still a great state to freelance,besides Canada,but sometimes its like tennisshoe pass to get to spots and beat the caravan of suburbans out to non-posted land

Shooting the roost is a major No-No in the Dakotas and CA.
