Hunted the Rugby area 10/4-10/7. The water is at it's lowest levals in the last 10 years. Made for tuff hunting because of the lack of cover. Still some water but not a reed to hide in. Also seems alot of ducks have moved east to the Devils lake area and also Churches Farry ware there is more water. We also saw more hunters in Rugby area than ever before? All looking for a place to hunt and most pot holes are dry. We did see one hunter from Wisconsin just drive in on posted land that only we have permission for, as we saw this we stoped until they turned and left? Some people will ruin it for everyone!!!! As for hunting we did shoot ducks just not a limits like we were used to. We think we saw more dark geese in this area than ducks. We normally go back up later in Oct but are thinking of hitting closer to Devils Lake or even east of there.
