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.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Ha, fixed.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?
