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.

    • 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. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
