You may even want to reserve a stay at a hunting retreat and perhaps even hire a local guide who can take you deep into the region to find some of the most elusive sport animals in the state such as elk and moose.
Perhaps you are not an angler nor a hunter, and you would enjoy a chance to just spend your hunt camping out under the stars and soaking up the wilderness. North Dakota offers up plenty of space for just that.
