Tyler you gonna be at NDSU next year? We didn't get out enough together this year. Between me and my old man we are hoping to have 4 dozen Bigfoots and 3 or 4 dozen Silhouettes, so that will finally give us a spread with some decent pulling power. If we team up we will have an awesome spread.
NDSU is my top choice. But i was thinking on NWT get school done with so i can start making some money. Then i can buyt all the BF'S i want, haha.
Yeah you should have hunted with use, it was a banner year for canadas.!!
Just think how many of these young guys will be leaving the state after
2-4 years of college if they aren't able to access land for hunting. If they have to pay for the best access then they might as well move to Minneapolis, make more money and come back to ND a couple of weekends a year. Great economic impact...or maybe not. Let's see, live in ND make $50,000 per year, purchase a house and car, pay about $1500.00 in state taxes as well as local property taxes and sales tax...or move to MN make 10 -20% more for the same job, pay no taxes to the state, and visit ND and pay an outfitter $500.00 for access. It wouldn't take me long to figure it out if access continues to decline at the rate it has been the last couple of years what I would do.
I'm an NDSU alum.....but I'm aware of the better programs between the two.
Personally.....NDSU has 2 positives that MSU can't beat:
1) North Dakota residency is always a plus (can't remember the exact rules but it's been brought here before). You can hunt waterfowl in ND pretty much 6 months out of the year (spring,early, regular,late).
2) Geese flying over campus pretty much everyday in the fall (not really a plus on your grades, but good for your social life :wink: ).
MN thats where I am planning on going for Consrtuction Managment to. But I dont know grades might srew it up to much slacking during high school. But If not im going to NWT, we'll have to hook up for a hunt. There is always grindage every weekend.
T-shot, what year are you? I will be at NDSU for sure next year, and I am as nuts about ducks and geese as anyone. It sounds like MNhunter will be up here, and Goosebuster3 will be at Northwest Tech I think, so we are shaping up to have quite the NDSU crew this year.
