I will try to help as best I can so here it is:
First of all, you picked a great weekend if the state isn't frozen over by then. The migration could very well be on big time. There is somethng about early November in ND. You will miss deer season (the following weekend) so a lot of land may be posted up for that but don't be afraid to ask as many landowners are only posting for deer. As far as water conditions are concerned, that part of the state is fairly dry so you will need to look for larger wetlands to find the birds. Be sure to look in the corn stubble as they will definitely be fattening up for the migration (it will be cold). I am not sure, others will help, but you are getting into the outfitter part of the state for upland and access may be difficult unless you are willing to pay (don't do that). Hunter pressure, however, will be down as you have chosen to go later in the season. I hope this helps. I am just a lowly rabbit choker and others will be able to add to or even refute my advice. Good luck.
