Metro Lottery

33 posts in this topic

For what lottery? If you're asking about MBRB, then some of the drawings have been done already and you can check by logging in to your account. I'm not sure what other metro lotteries there are?

You will be notified by letter or email, just cause the drawing closed on the 15th doesn't mean the names are picked already.

Its usually a month after the close date.

Patience grasshopper....

Some of the hunts have been picked last week for the MBRB.

Indeed. I was drawn as a primary for Poplar Lake. I was hoping most for Crosby Farm (in my neighborhood), but Poplar seems like it should be a good one.

Is there anyone else on this site that also has been drawn this year for a MBRB hunt?

I am primary for Spring Lake Regional Park. Crosby has yet to be drawn.

I'm planning on a sharpshooter hunt, but there are no guarantees.

All right! So we have at least 3 FM'ers each at a different MBRB hunt. Good luck to all. Hope there are more, and maybe even some of us will get the same hunt.

I enjoyed getting to know some of the other hunters at Turtle Lake last year and found it was a better experience when we worked together and communicated. Maybe some of us will get the same hunt and be able to help each other be successful?

I totally agree that MBRB would be more productive if guys would share more. I've gotten to know quite a few guys and have many of them in my cell phone if I have a question or need help.

If you guys are sharpshooter there is a good chance we will cross paths. That being said, I've been doing MBRB for 3 years witha buddy and we haven't been drawn on the same hunt yet.

Has any body heard about anoka county parks yet?
Just Found out today that I got in the rice creek hunt, but I also want to hunt a rifle hunt up north that just went to a lottery do you have to by a tag to get in the lottery? I don't want to be stuck to have to either get only a doe with the bow so I can still fill the rifle tag with a buck.

They're taken off the page the day they do the drawing. This happened to me when I was drawn. They should go back on in a day or so.

I was drawn for Gale Woods (looking for some HOT TIPS ok?) and also for the Rice Creek chain o' lakes anoka county parks hunt. My 16 year old brother-in-law was also drawn... should be a good time.

Blarkey we should meet up for the hunt - would be good to know a few folks to cover more ground.

Bummed about not getting shorewood / oakdale though.

I can't believe I didn't get Oakdale/Shorewood. I've done both in the last 2 years. Too much popularity and too easy of a qualifier I think. Oh well. I did get one hunt so we'll see how the last couple hunt draws shake out.

I can't complain too much. It is high quality hunting in the metro area.

I've also tried to spread the word cause I think its a good thing to do, but of course that brings more competition for the "better" hunts.

Which one did you get? As I said earlier, I'm doing Poplar Lake. I'm hoping for a Sharpshooter as well as maybe an alternate for Crosby (crossing my fingers all day tomorrow).

Hey BradB I have some tips for you for Poplar if you haven't hunted there before. Unlike most of the other hunts I've done, location is critical on that hunt - then again if you've already been out there you probably know that smile

Yeah I got SLRP in Prior Lake. I have my Orientation meeting on tuesday night so I'll have a better idea about the place by midweek.

Sorry Nugefan, I guess I didn't see that. Congrats Powerstroke and good luck!

WaitForit, I would be very grateful for any tips you may be willing to give. I spent a half day there two weeks ago scouting the area, but I don't know the access points, zones, buffers from homes, etc., so I'm a bit unsure. I'm #13 of 30 so I should get my first pick, which will be weekends 1&3 as I'm taking a relative from Sweden hunting Weekend 4. I was planning to rely on the Hunt Coordinator for advice, but I would like to be somewhat knowledgeable going in. If you want, you can email me directly at *b*r*u*n*n*e*r*b*@comcast.net (if you remove the *'s--I wrote it that way to avoid spambots.)

BradB, Tips sent - hope there is something in there you can use.

Blarkey what is your email? I started with my aerial map research and have already targeted a few areas that look promising from 10,000 feet.

I probably won't think about getting out there until early Oct because I'll be pretty busy with my own hunts and I'm also mentoring a youth hunter as I mentioned.. I hope we both have one in the freezer before the anoka county park hunt starts!

    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
    • They look nice but but they also look expensive for what they are.
    • I worked all weekend and got the siding up.  I was hoping to have the diamond plate and the roof on too, but I guess that will wait for next weekend along with the ramp furring strips and wiring.  I should be able to put up the plywood for the roof and the furring strips during the week in my shed since I won't need heat for that.       I called around Friday looking for a spray foamer in my area.  Apparently our local painting company no longer does spray foam.  I had guys that weren't interested, to guys that would do it for 2000 if I supplied a heated building to do it in.  Finally I found a guy about an hour away from me who has done several fish houses before and quoted me 1600 and can do it in his own shop.  I was expecting between 1000 and 1500, so it's just a little over my high end.  Does that sound reasonable on a 21' fish house?
