I got drafted last year and the year before. From what I've heard there hasn't been enough applicants. I thought the numbers last year was the weekday hunt they were short around 150 and the weekend about 200. These are just numbers guys in line at the hunt heard about. Hope this helps.

They were not short because the last 2 years our group has not been picked. But it was 3 years in a row before that.

I have always went in as a group. I think that it does make a difference if you change group leaders. When you join a group that has been started you are under the person that starts the groups MDNR # not your own. Not sure but I think it makes a difference. We have odd numbers of people that go each season because we have a party of 8 of the low end and as many as 13 depending on the year so we also have multiple groups.

Our group of 3 did not get drawn for the weekend hunt last year. Before that we had been drawn 3 years in a row. Our group leader changed last year also, so maybe that does make a difference even though the people in the group stayed the same.

I emailed the DNR last year after we didn't get drawn because I wanted to know which hunt had the best odds. When they replied back it showed that both hunts had more applicants than permits but more people applied for the weekend hunt. So your odds are better of getting drawn for the first hunt.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
