Greetings from Spirit Water Inn Resort, on the western shore of Devils Lake, North Dakota.
We are gearing up for a busy October. North Dakota Game and Fish reports that Goose hunters can expect another good fall flight based on biologist observations. Opening day for North Dakota residents to hunt ducks, geese, coots and mergansers is Sept. 27. Nonresidents may begin waterfowl hunting in North Dakota October 4.
All migratory bird hunters are reminded to register with the Harvest Information Program prior to hunting. Hunters who purchase a license through the state Game and Fish Department website (gf.nd.gov) or instant licensing telephone number (800-406-6409) can easily get HIP certified.
You can access the 2008 North Dakota Waterfowl Hunting Guide for season regulations including dates, bag limits and nonresident hunting units at (gf.nd.gov).
We still have some openings here at Spirit Water Inn for the October hunting season but don’t delay, call soon. We are looking forward to greeting new visitors and many returning customers this fall. Our guests are always so pleased at the spaciousness of our cottages. There’s plenty of room for the whole gang and all their gear. We can accommodate every size group with 1, 2 and 3 bedroom cottages. You will find extra-long beds to ensure your comfort. There are no stairs to climb, no hallways to drag your stuff through. Our kitchens are all fully furnished with everything you need and the grills are ready to be fired up. We love all the creative ways hunters find to prepare duck and other specialties.
Your hunting dogs are welcome here. We will be carrying dog biscuits in our jacket pockets. We really enjoy seeing the enthusiasm these dogs have for the hunt.
Don’t forget that fishing is great here on Devils Lake right through October. There’s less pressure on the lake and some beautiful days ahead. Fishing has been good under the bridges and on humps using jigs with minnows. The trolling bite has also been good.
Please come join us in beautiful Minnewaukan this fall. Give us a call on our toll-free line to reserve a spot: 877-305-1528. Check out our website at www.spiritwaterinn.com.
