The Minnesota crew, 2008
Tonight, we're expecting a group of men from Minnesota to ring the doorbell at our house. This is an annual voyage. A manly type of event. You see, it's hunting season - undeniably one of the most popular times of the year in North Dakota. My husband and his buddies load up the dogs and the gear and will be in pursuit of geese, sharptail and maybe even a walleye. That's the thing about North Dakota, it's bountiful for many reasons and on a three-day adventure you can have three different pursuits. I just read a column, written by Sam Cook of the Duluth News Tribute, which talked about the friendliness hunters find in North Dakota too. Thanks Sam; be sure to visit again soon! For information on public lands available to hunters (PLOTS) in North Dakota, seasons, licensing and regulations, visit the North Dakota Game and Fish Department website. And most of all: Good luck!
