Hunting & Fishing


HUNTING in North Dakota is the best in the US. We can proudly boast that 90% of the licensed hunters get their deer. With a large population of white-tail deer, it is sure to continue in its popularity. If UPLAND BIRD or WATERFOWL hunting is your sport, our county hosts many species of ducks, geese, turkey, partridges, and grouse.

FISHING for a tasty Walleye or a good Northern Pike, you need to fish along Lake Darling. We reserve areas at Grano, Greene, and the Lake Darling Dam.
