OK all you fowl-busters. This is my first post to the site, but I have visited regularly for the last year. This is my second trip to Nodak and my only companion for the trip will by my lab (Sergeant).
The reason for my post is this: I don't want to forget anything! I am preparing a checklist and need your input. I've been following the weather and the scouting reports, have accommodations throughout the state, and will be there for two weeks.
Please help me complete my list for anything I might have forgotten; I'm sure that others that read this thread will be able to utilize the information as well.

A variety of camo patterns (if you've got it), a lot of different cover situations.

I agree with Tyler, might want to beef up the spread a bit

Make sure you have a GOOD map

cell phone - great for tracking down landowners

OK, guys. I see that a lot of people are viewing my thread, but I'm not getting many responses. Maybe this will trigger some interest:

My waterfowl license starts on Sunday, Oct. 5th. I plan to arrive in the early afternoon on Saturday to scout. I've opted for Zone 3 for both weeks, and my small game (for sandhills) starts Wednesday, Oct. 8th. I intend to be staying in Rugby for the first few days and probably hunting south and east of there. Mid-week, I thought that I'd head west and south of Minot for a few days. For the remainder of the trip, I am considering the area north and east of Carrington (south of Devils Lake).

If anyone would be interested in hooking up with me for a day in the field, tell me what else I need to bring (and how to get in touch with you).

I might be up in Rugby that weekend of the 5th. I won't know for a little while but if I am up there we could probably get together and hunt on Sunday.

Great list

I don't think I saw a gun cleaning kit. Make sure you have checked your vehicles spare tire and have the tools to change. You never know where you mite get a flat.

Cooler

Good luck to all and be safe
