A posting on duckhunter.net forum has diverged to discussing road hunting in ND. I rarely if ever road hunt in ND anymore, but road hunting was a way of life when I was teen growing up in ND.

We still let the kids hunting with us to road hunt if the quarry looks good. I may follow them without a gun to help teach sneaking lines and to stay low.

Anyway: Questions or Comments
In North Dakota

I have always heard there is no issue road huning along ND state and federal highways since both government agencies own the road and the ditch to the fence line.

Counties may or may not own the ditch along their roads or gravel roads and thus the ditch may be posted if the adjacent land is posted.

This then puts us to Section Lines. Huntable or not. :huh:

Actually you confirmed most of what I already knew or at least believed to be true. No surprizes.

Most ND and US owned highways are open to hunting in the ditches. Same can not be held true for county highways and gravel roads.

Section lines closed to hunting if adjacent land is posted. This is a conflict area that pops up every fall. Section lines not only attract a lot of upland birds, they can make for great waterfowl and crane pass shooting lanes.

Strange concept, that you might (?) legally road hunt down much of hwy 2, hwy 83 and hwy 200, but turn down the next gravel road and you have to ask permission or risk arrest.

Fetch made a comment on another site and I will repeat it here. Number one rule of hunting private land or near private land is stay away from occupied farm buildings and areas were cattle are standing near the fence. Simply wrong. Confrontation likely to occur and hunters in general take it on the chin.
