As always Top Gun takes the approach to North Dakota duck hunting and goose hunting, as we do in all of our other locations. Our scouting is not only a daily activity but a year round job that we watch the nesting and migratory patterns for the upcoming seasons. We scout based on the location of birds and also areas that we feel birds are going to funnel through before they arrive during the migration. Geese and especially Ducks in North Dakota change their habits every year to changing conditions such as water, food, hunting pressure, flooded areas, hail damaged crops, etc.
Our fall guided duck hunts and goose hunts run from the first week of October thru the first week of December. We hunt for geese in the morning (Canada's and Snow Geese) and ducks in the afternoon (Mallards, Pintails, Widgeon) unless you limit out in the morning on both. We field hunt 95% of the time to allow the water to hold birds. We also offer North Dakota upland bird hunting to substitute the afternoon duck / goose hunt (fair chase wild birds).
A Typical Day:
We offer several North Dakota duck hunting and goose hunting locations, all which are within three hours of the Fargo airport. Those areas are around the towns of: Devils Lake, Jamestown and Rugby, ND. When you arrive you will settle in the night before your guided hunt and in the morning where you will follow your guide to the field. We use very large decoys sets for snow goose hunts that consist of high end windsocks (1200+). Canada goose hunts are all full body decoys with flocking. North Dakoat duck hunts are usually field hunts for mallards using full body duck decoys or high end wind sock decoys (300+) for the late season push of the large concentration of mallards. We typically hunt geese in the morning and ducks in the afternoon. If we limit out on both ducks and geese in the morning, we will run an afternoon upland bird hunt.

We have purposely left our prices off of the listing due to the fact that we do not want the price of the hunt to hinder your ability to join us. We are able to customize any hunt to meet your needs including the overall cost of the hunt. We can have dinner and cocktails ready for you when you get back to the lodge or we can have a grill with propane and an RV hookup for you, if you are self sufficient.

About The Outfitter:
Top Gun has been offering hunts since 1998! I am owner/outfitter Matt Kostka. I am an all waterfowl outfitter that follows the migration of snow geese for up to 9 months of the year. I hunt every species of waterfowl in five mid-western states and Saskatchewan. I currently am licensed in four zones in Saskatchewan, Canada and have a multi-zone outfitter's license in North Dakota that allows me to hunt the entire state. I also run hunts in Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas and South Dakota.
I specialize in the field hunting of snow geese, mallards, and Canada's. I have camps is Saskatchewan and North Dakota for duck hunting and goose hunting packages. Once those areas freeze up we move south ending in Kansas and Missouri. When the spring rolls around I hunt in N.W. Missouri and N.E. Kansas where we have been hunting for the last 9 seasons. I offer hunts near Squaw Creek NWR. I currently have a 100+ person lodge available just minutes from the refuge that provide food, recreation, and has a full service bar. I also have 9 years of farmer / outfitter relationships that give us endless amount of land leases. After Missouri / Kansas we jump up to South Dakota, North Dakota, and end our season back up in Saskatchewan. All of these locations including our North Dakota duck hunting packages, are run out of hotels and lodges. We have excellent success rates on decoying snows in each location and they are all comparable to each other.
