I hope you're not staying at the Lone Steer Motel. The lady who owns it is, well, let's just say not a person I like nor support.

Lots of leased land south of there, we normally stay far away. Water condtions are very poor in the southern part of the state all summer, and getting drenched lately. You'll probably find yourself scouting/hunting mostly north.

Kind of a cliche' when a guy travels, but it it the truth, bring more than enough clothes. I am on the ND/SD border and it was in the low 90's four days ago, this early morning it is in the upper 40's. In a couple weeks heaven only knows what the weather/temps will be like.

Remember, if your in ND you are likely to come to the belief that their ain't a hundred acres of standing trees between you and the north pole, the wind is always a factor.

Best of luck on your hunt.

I usually goto Nodak once a year. There is ampil opportunity up there, if the birds are there (Ducks). Last year I went the 3rd week of October and the waterfowl hunting was meger at best ,so we hung up the decoys fired up the pointers and had the best year ever Pheasant hunting, all in all we went home very happy... GOTTA LOVE NODAK!

Opener was awesome, but this weekend was slooooooow. I don't know where the birds went, but they weren't thick like last week. I think it was mainly becuase there wasn't as much pressure this weekend compared to last (go figure since it was non-res opener) All the birds were holding to the big water and there wasn't anyone around to push them off. Hope you guys have good luck when you get here...maybe the cold weather will push down some fresh birds for ya. :thumbsup:

Thanks Guys, for all the reports, I was just curious what we'll be lookin at! I'm pretty sure that even if its a bad day in Nodak, it will be way better than a half decent day in PA. we just dont get the birds you do!! C-Yunz-round :thumbsup:
