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.

      Do any of the forums here have any info on this lake? Can't find a logical geographical area in any of the titles. Looking at a resort stay there with the family next August.

      Eskimo makes the best ice screws. They go in like butter! Papadarv, what are you using for a wood floor? I have the same home sweet home 949i.

      Chalstroms, Fisherman's Corner, ect ect. It didn't matter the bait shop. Is it just me or was there a bumper crop of undersized fatheads?

      The Eskimo crossover EVO are 2 person hubs on a sled. Thought you were looking for 4 person. I agree with eyeguy on the 949i moving, wind and vehicle block. I got my first one in 2011 which lacked a bit in quality and design. Eskimo replaced it in 2014 with latest design, much better unit. Part of the reason its tough to take down and put in bag is the amount of moisture the non-vented propane heaters produce (Mr. Heater and like). At 0 deg. frost will build up on the quilted seams which adds weight and bulk. At -20 the inside will turn totally white with frost so using a tie cord or bungee to tie it up till spring works well. The 949i serves 3 people nicely. 4 people is crowded with all the gear. I found the biggest challenge with moving is transferring all the gear in and out of the hub with 3 or 4. Not bad with two if you go light. I also added a fold-up floor to keep things off the melted ice, easier to heat and a bit less moisture. My buddy has a Clam 6 pack, the octagon version. Clam uses a lighter weight material so its about the same weight. Set up its about 9 ft. in diameter. Same amount of effort setting up, taking down and moving gear, frost buildup about the same its just a bit more room to handle 4 nicely.

      Has anybody tried the crossover style shelters by Eskimo?
