    Your Top Three "Go To" Rod/Reel Combos

    I just bought a thorne brothers power noodle and a tica cetus reel. It looks like exactly what i wanted. I anticipate that i will use this rod 99% of the time. cant wait to use it for some jumbo perch

    Ripley private land????

    Did not get drawn for the ripley hunt as was thinking on trying to get permission on private land close to ripley on the west side during the same weekend. Anyone ever do this? Are land owners open to this in that area or is most of the land already hunted with little hope of getting permision????

    You will not find solitude and if that is what you want you will be disappointed. But if you want the opportunity to shoot a trophy buck then you may want to give it a try. The people is what helps keep the deer moving all day long. I have shot 2 deer there now and both have been in the middle of the day. I see more deer in the middle of the day than in the prime hours. thanks to the people that cannot sit still all day long. you will have guys walk right under your stand- dont let that bother you. It is kinda fun to drop a twig down when they are rigth under you and watch them jump.

    Ripley is a preference drawing. If you do not get in this year you are guaranteed the next year. Guarantedd because of the number of applicants. And if you do not have a preference point you have about a 65% chance of getting drawn each year. Thus you may get to go every other year if you are not lucky. and if you have a little luck you could get drawn 10 years in a row. But you are guarantedd to go every other year unless you are not applying properly. If you have not got drawn 2 years ina row i would contact the dnr and find out why. If you are applying as a group remember that you are put in the preference level of the lowest person in your group- so dont be switching group members
