I think this would be a fun thing to do at the end of the season.

Take the top 10 from both league's and fish out to see who is the the best... What do you all think.

I think this is a great idea. I hope the north division has successful participation like the metro league.

Juano, I like the idea. I think this would be a good spot to throw in a mystery lake, also. Everyone head to a central city then follow Matt out the unknown lake and just start fishing. Make it a real shootout for the championship!!

This definitely sounds like a good idea, but after the last Metro UPL event (March 10) I'm on the road for two weeks filming and at events, and at that point the ice could be iffy at the end of March. I'm all for getting something on the calendar, but someone else will have to run it. I do know that we're looking into something like this for next year, some kind of championship for the top 10 teams in the Metro UPL, maybe combine it and do the top 10 for both leagues for a 20 team championship?

Great stuff guys!

Jim, keep at it. You might need to just start with five teams or so and it will grow. We would come up and fish some but because of the Saturday events we won't have time to prefish. Mike and I still might just show up and fish blind without prefishing a few events though.

I like the mystery lake idea. I would even do that just for fun.

Would really like to participate in the UPL. From what folks have told me and what I've read it seems to be a great way to become a better angler. Any openings in the Northern league- I'm willing to drive from the metro to the events.

      @gimruis come on, you always have to have a plan incase you go through, whether it be yourself, atv, or truck.  Even if the ice is 2 feet thick because you never know.  Most of these people dont think of what they should do in case of an emergency.

      I'm not about to personally attack someone because they are making a poor decision here but lets be honest with ourselves: if the ice is questionable and unsafe and you need to make a plan in case you fall through, you definitely shouldn't be out there.  A few crappies just aint worth the risk.  Just last week 12 people had to be rescued off URL and another guy went through.  Stay on dry land until we get an extended cold snap in December.  The ice and fish will still be there in January fellas.

      Zone 172, saw nothing, only heard about 6 shots all day and trucks and hunters all over.

      jayesswhy, it looks like you have been a member since 2007 so I'll just say good first post.    Deer camp shacks and campers have notoriously bad lighting and add in a few beers it's sometimes hard to see clearly, or your buddies need to get their eye's checked. 🤓   Same Deer.

      I think Bryan has it under control without a spud bar....calm down moms.  All someone has to do without one is slowly work your way out drilling holes along the way, and have a plan if you go through.  Thats the biggest, have a plan if you go through.   But, nice Bryan keep up the good videos!

      Just wanted to start a forum where we could post our observations on our hunts in various areas.  I along with five others hunted in the North part of zone 108.   Had a little snow before the opener so could see tracks and areas of deer movement. Checked my stand on Thursday and there was quite a few tracks and even  a fresh scrape nearby.  More troubling though was a pair of wolves leaving tracks around our hunting area.  Even went through our yard early Thursday morning.  Trail cams had lots of different Bucks on them all fall so we had high hopes.  So on to Saturday.  One of my brother in laws dropped a nice 8 point around 8:15 Saturday and that was our high point.  We all sat the rest of the day with no other deer sightings.  Very little shooting in area to be heard and what's worse the weather changed late afternoon.  Sunday dawned cold and dreary with more of the same lack of deer activity, only two does seen by our group. We heard four shots all Sunday.  Monday it was -6 at sunrise and it was a brutal sit that morning.   Everyone reported no new tracks seen and we never heard a shot till almost dark one was heard near a nearby road.  My question did anyone else have this deer vanishing act play out on them?  Maybe the wolves and weather spooked them or maybe the population there is not as high as the Dnr  claims. Anyway the one is all we tagged.  Was also noticed the lack of hunters around the area.  Was a tough hunt.  Any others got a report for us?

      I think it depends on the work and type but 10,000$ is not out of the question
