lottery results when?

14 posts in this topic

I can't remember, but it seems like it's fairly soon when spring turkey lottery results come out. Does anybody know the date or seen it somewhere? I didn't see it on the DNR site the last time I looked.

DNR website says by February 15th, but usually it is 2 or 3 weeks before that it is on the website.

I am getting pumped - 3rd year trying for 349 A, so my fingers are crossed.

They're pretty ornery about it, at least the information officer I spoke to.

"By Feb. 15th," I interjected that by this time last year they'd been posted, she sharply responded, "Well they haven't even been drawn yet."

Looks like we may be waiting awhile longer. From my experience, the WI folks have been much more courteous in the previous years I've inquired about lottery drawings.

Suspect the person answering the phone had no idea. So they give you the standard response.

I check the DNR site about every other day and everyday beginning Feb 1.

I set it up as my homepage on my laptop. We've got a sweet spot this year if we get drawn.

That's dedication!

Unfortunately it seems to take a while for the lottery to actually take place, and then even longer to get results. They never give a date they are first available, just a date that you will for sure know by. THe best thing to do is to try once a week, or set your homepage and check it daily or hourly like setterguy grin.gif J/K. Once a week starting in February outta do it \:\)

I know you guy's are talking MN, but I'm waiting for the results from WI, which are sometime in February. Till then, I'll keep that lucky rabbit's foot in my pocket!!!

I will look at it when I know they are posted.

I am excited to see if I get drawn, but can wait to find out until March.

A few of m neighbors can't wait though. For, if I don't get drawn...I don't allow hunters in my woods. If I do get drawn, they can go in (with permission) after I hunt.

Kind of a strange way to do it, but that is the way I like it.

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
