Applications: Individual vs. Group

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some.
