Last year was the first year of this hunt. I didn't hear anything about it from the people I know so either it was really good or really bad.

I would suggest contacting the Conservation Officer in the area or maybe look up the contact info for the WMA and talk to the area manager.

we do have to attend a mandatory meeting on the 2nd or 3rd to get our pass. Their HSOforum has alot of helpfull maps but there is nothing like setting foot in the area and scouting. Was also wondering if anyone from the forum was there last year and how it went for them. Like someone said either it was really good or really bad.

I was selected for the hunt also. I've been studying the satelite maps from Google so far. Looks like a fair amount of open land, but there's a lot of it. I'm hoping there's some nice deer in there. There will be a fair amount of us in there (at least 60). I'm not sure how they'll split us all up. I wish I had more info... See you at orientation-

see you there on thursday my brother and I applied as a team and we both got in. I dont plan to be out there on opener ill probably have my wife take a few days off during the week when i know a nice front is moving in or something is changing with the weather. Hopefully i can beat the crowd a bit. working overnights has its perks especially hunting times of the year

saw 2 does on one field and 1 in another I have a few spots I liked. I assume everyone will show up for opener but then only a few of us will continue hunting. looks like some nice areas though.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
