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!!!

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'm awesome at catching fish in the US. I leave Canada to those who are not so awesome at fishing.
    • I was at the fishing show & had talked with the Aqua Vu staff.  Their new HD cameras look amazing!  I thought the pictures on the AV760 was great, but these are super sharp. They also stated that you can view them clearly in the direct sun light.
    • The walleyes (current strong) I catch on Rainy fight harder than any bass I've ever caught. 
    • That's what happened when a mouse ran up Del's leg. He peed all over the carpet. 
    • cool info here....   http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/education_safety/safety/ice/ice_stats.pdf
    • Anyone fall thru the ice with a floating jacket or bibs? Any take on it? How about going thru WITHOUT floating jacket and pants? Any take on it? What if you fall in? What should you do if you fall through the ice? First, try not to panic. This may be easier said than done, unless you have worked out a survival plan in advance. Read through these steps so that you can be prepared. Don't remove your winter clothing. Heavy clothes won't drag you down, but instead can trap air to provide warmth and flotation. This is especially true with a snowmobile suit. Turn toward the direction you came. That’s probably the strongest ice. Place your hands and arms on the unbroken surface. This is where a pair of nails, sharpened screwdrivers or ice picks come in handy in
      providing the extra traction you need to pull yourself up onto the ice. Kick your feet and dig in your ice picks to work your way back onto the solid ice. If your clothes have trapped a lot of water, you may have to lift yourself partially out of the water on your elbows to let the water drain before starting forward. Lie flat on the ice once you are out and roll away from the hole to keep your weight spread out. This may help prevent you from breaking through again. Get to a warm, dry, sheltered area and re-warm yourself immediately. In moderate to severe cases of cold water hypothermia, you must seek medical attention. Cold blood trapped in your extremities can come rushing back to your heart after you begin to re-warm. The shock of the
      chilled blood may cause ventricular fibrillation leading to a heart attack and death! 
    • dont be surprised if ya catch a REB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well see their ya, go. Now fight that on a 26" rod. Can we both agree then that Walleye's can give up a little fight?
    • Here's a 12lber from this summer, though
