Very sorry I missed your original posts.

The Rapids Lake area appears to be a tricky one, as it's on the border b/w 337/338. The map is difficult to interpret, so just to be on the safe side, I usually email the DNR for actual road/river/county boundaries that form the zone.

However, this all may be a moot point, as from the rules:


Under-subscribed wild turkey permits will be offered to hunters who applied in the computer preference lottery but were not successful.

To me, this means that you had to apply for the general drawing to receive a fall turkey permit OR surplus permit. I know this is true for the spring hunt as well.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
