I couldn't wait anymore so I called the DNR this morning and me and a buddy tried for 2nd season this year and where in baby!!!

I've seen more big bucks on their feet when it is raining out, Don't let a little rain stop you. It can be some of the best hunting you'll ever see.

A little rain??? Last year it started to rain while setting up the camper. It never stopped until we got home. Not a drizzle!! It rained hard. By the time I walked out and set up my stand I was soaked through my rain gear. Only good thing was it was warm and Yes there were deer moving.

No offense man! I was trying to let you and others know that these times when there is unfavorable weather happening that it can mean some of the best hunting. What kind of rain gear do you have? I don't think I want to buy any of that this year. wink

My rain gear is older but still works sometimes. The walking through grass in the woods soaked my boots and sox. By the time I got to where I was going to sit I was soaked from rain and also sweat. I even had an umbrella attached to the tree but since I was soaked before the umbrella was just to keep the rain from pounding on me. The heat in my camper quit at about 2:00am so dry clothes were not available. On the last day we did drive around on the road that were so washed out it felt like you were driving down a rumble strip. We did mark about six different spots on my GPS and will give them a try this year.

I'm in. 3 or 4 years in a row. My buddy who applied for the first time did not get drawn. I repeat, did not get drawn so some of you may not get drawn either. More people must have applied this year.

Just checked the DNR site...I'll see you there first season!

I applied as a group(two of us) two years ago and did not get in. Did not apply last year. Says I now have 2 preference points as a group and also 2 solo. Should be an interesting experience. Good luck to all.

Just go to the Link listed in Jameson's post...that will take you to the DNR HSOforum with the lotto results for the first hunt. The last part of the web address is :campripley1.html. Just change the number 1 to a 2 and leave everything else the same. Hit enter and it will take you to the 2nd weekend lotto result.

I would assume the DNR is still in the process of getting their HSOforum up and running with the results and this explains the confusion.

I was denied for the 3rd time in a row!!! I now have a preference level of 3, and a group preference level of only 1 cause a new guy joined our group. Should have kept him out!!!

fishinmajishin if you applied as a group it goes by the guy thats lowest on the totem pole with preference points. Good Luck to you guys!

Nope, I applied solo this year. Wasn't expecting to get in. I don't understand why they say I have 2 PP's as a group...I only applied that way once, 2 years ago and didn't get drawn. I did not apply last year either way. It also says I have 2 solo points. Oh well, guess it doesn't matter, I'll be in there lookin for Mr. big. That is if he aint hangin 2 weeks from now!

    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!     
    • Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro. Not my deal, so I let 'em be. Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.   Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening. Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
