    If the game is properly tagged you can carry them across statelines without issue.

    No permit yet.
    They are on Navajo time.
    Was told they are being sent up from Window Rock, Az.
    The safety gun went down Friday for a meeting with fish and game in attendance.
    Haven't heard anything yet.
    Went scouting Wednesday. Most corn is still standing with harvesting going on. But oh the wheat fields, and winter wheat sure looked great.
    Glad I have a layout blind. The fields are huge and no cover.
    Know of 2 ponds now, plus was told to find low spots in the canals that hold water when they stop the water for the winter.

    Most reservations work that way. Season pass for hunting. Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming etc all have reservations with the same program. I've used them

    Well good news, bad news and other....
    I paid my money, and got my NAPI permit.
    Bad news is, is Napi's season is but from November 26 thru January 30, so only 2 months long.
    Nm season ends January 24, so I can still hunt up there a week longer.
    Navajo Nation season ends December 18, iirc..
    Plus side is It's 72,00 acres of prime agricultural fields.

    Now I got a question for you duck experts.
    When I was leaving the field office at dusk, I saw a flock of over a hunert ducks fly over me, then another, and another.
    I turned around and started following them, more were flying over.
    They hooked left and I backed up at full throttle to watch them, and I turned into a cut corn field access and just held my mouth open as thousands of ducks were circling and landing. Eric, the safety guy had seen me and pulled in behind and we watched hundreds more circle and land. We had the biggest grins.
    So why were all these ducks landing in a cut corn field right before dark?
    How long would they stay, and do ducks return to the same field come daylight or do they stay all night.

    Oh come on November 26th!!
    And the major migrations haven't even got here yet!

    They are going to eat....it was a full moon the the other night,,,they will stay until they have picked the field clean or until someone/something pushes them along like a cold front, highly unlikely those birds will be there in Nov unless there are other fields in the area yet to be harvested, and then they are headed either south or the nearest refuge with undisturbed water...If they are there at dusk/night there is no guarantee they will be there in the morning or they might leave before LST..I would try and pattern them and see if the field is a morning spot or an afternoon spot or possibly a roost

    There are hundreds of uncut corn fields up there right now. They have just started harvesting. There is an endless supply of food there.
    Just never thought ducks fed or roosted on dry land in the dark.
