Camp Ripley When do you arrive?

4 posts in this topic

I am hunting on Thursday and Friday When do you all arrive who have done this hunt. It is my first hunt would it be best to try to be first in line or wait till Thursday morning and get there later? What is best and any pointers on where to try?

Have done this hunt in the past and first in line is a tall order. Seems like no matter how early you are, there is always at least fifty vehicles in front of you. Doesn't matter though, great bunch of guys and plenty of area to hunt. Have fun and good luck!

Honetly, you should be in line right now. I didn't get drawn this year but last 2 years I get off work Wed 7AM and get there by 8:30 and there are 30 vehicles ahead of me. It sure beats coming in last and having to find a spot to hunt rather picking a spot if you get there early. Enjoy yourself it will be a blast.

      I'm in agreement with everyone here. And like a few have eluded to, it's time to move on. There's no point in publicly bashing them because they changed how they operate, and changed their target demographic. I was a frequent visitor for 10+ years, leading up to the newest owners. The best way to protest is with your wallet.   So I've learned to stop caring about what it used to be (guaranteed hangover the next morning), and what it is now. I don't care that they're putting a boat above the bar. I'd rather be in a boat, than under one. It's a tough (seasonal dependent) business up there, so why they chose to alienate their clientele, is beyond me. Nowadays, I spend my money elsewhere, and spend more nights around the campfire instead. I still can't figure out how they even turn a profit, based on the number of cars/boats I see there on any given weekend. Oh well, who cares. Time will tell.
