Applications: Individual vs. Group

4 posts in this topic

Myself and one, possibly two others will be submitting our spring applications. Most likely we'll all be hunting together, but sometimes it may just be me or me and one other.

Should we apply as a group? Is there any "advantages" in a group application? OR... should we all just apply as indivuals?

Signed...

Confused by the regs again!! laugh (aka: MooseHunter)

If you all want to hunt at the same time you could do the group deal.One gets drawn you all get a tag.The DNR will go by the lower preference points so if you have one or two points and there is a person in the group with zero that will hurt your chances they will go by the lowest of the groups points.If you are hunting with someone that is more experienced I might do the group permit over the indivdual just so you have that person with you on the hunt.

You may want to consider each putting in for a different time period as well. This way if a few of you draw you'll be able to hunt longer than 5 days and tag-team if you will. One guy can film for the other the fist period than switch it up for 2nd time period. All depends on your preference points though. Where I hunt, I only get drawn every third year so I'd rather have one guy get drawn one year and I the next and be able to assist/hunt both years. The law was finally changed that you can now assist another hunter, take advantage of it!

It depends on your goals for the hunt. If you all want to hunt together on the same trip, then you should sign up as a group or you risk someone not getting a tag. Applying as a group can be dangerous because it is an all or nothing draw, but if you do get drawn then you know you will all have tags.

There is no advantage or disadvantage to using a group or individual. If you apply as a group your preference is that of the person with the lowest preference number so if some of you have pref points than you may want to apply separate.

    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
