I got drawn for the weekend hunt. This will be my second time going and i can't wait. It's kind of fun hunting ripely if you can handle all of the compay. I enjoyed BSing with all the other hunters after the first day of the hunt and watching the guys getting thier deer weighed.

Had a run in with a bear and three of her cubs last time i was up there. They got within a couple of yards of me while i was ground hunting. Man, that made my heart pump.

I'm in!!! First season is when I will be up there. This was my second time applying and first time getting drawn. I hope it is as exciting as everyone says it is. So last night was probably the last night of good sleep I will get until Ripley. Bring on the dreams of 20pt Ol'Ottis!

I hope you share your dream because I'm heading there too. I'll be the one shooting your 20 pts twin brother who tops the scale at an even 250 lbs and 50 of them pounds are his rack. 1st session and a first timer. Glad my hunting partner has been there before so he can show me the ropes. Can't wait!!!

Man, its going to be hard to sleep....what makes it even worse is the fact that I am currently at Camp Ripley training and I can see them deer already. grin.gif Believe it or not, I am spending my evenings sitting in the barracks watching Drury hunting DVDs...... grin.gif

Good luck to all that are going. I went last year and had fun. But because of other hunts I am doing decided not to apply this year. I did do a lot of scouting last year and found some great spots for future hunts.

We're going for the first time, first time we've ever applied. We're doing the weekend hunt. Looking forward to it along with all the other hunting I've got planned. I think I'll be sleeping just as good until then as I do during the rest of hunting season. Usually pretty good once I've been out a time or two & got pooped out.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
