I totally understand this weather feels closer to February than it is October or even November. And while it’s easy to convince rooster hunting on a warm autumn day the reality is North Dakota upland game seasons are open. So if you have kids, in-laws or friends visiting North Dakota over the holidays and they don’t feel at ease on the ice. There’s still hunting options available.
Start off with the license options which are purchased/printed off the Game and Fish Department website www.gf.nd.gov
14 days of non-reisdent upland game hunting is approximately $100
Next find a spot to hunt. And even short-term visitors can check out the Wildlife Managment Area’s and PLOTS guide for some options here: http://www.gf.nd.gov/hunting/private-land-open-sportsmen
