Got mine done yesterday....freaks me out being that close though. I was on pins and needles all day. What if the truck broke down and a blizzard hit? Too much to risk. grin.gif

It depends on the season you applied for. If you applied for an early season your chances aren't as good as applying for a later season. More people apply for the earlier seasons. The first year I applied I was drawn, but I applied for one of the last seasons to up my chances of being drawn. If you don't get drawn this year you will have a better chance next year.

You can call the DNR and they will send you a report of how many people applied for each season in your area of interest.

It can help you predict where your best possible odds are for the coming year.

Well I wait to the last minute but got it done.

Now I'll have to distract myself with a couple months of ice fishing to pass the time until the DNR notifies me of my spring status. wink.gif

I Got-R-Done as well but Grandpa missed the date. He thought it was the 6th for some reason? Let me tell you that he is not very happy right now. grin.gif

Notification will be sent out by February 15, 2006.

You can also check the internet

http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/hunting/turkey/springhunt2006.html

to see if you were chosen. This is usually posted a couple of days prior to getting the mailed notification, probably due to the mail.

Side note. I was getting ready for bed and realized it was the last day for me to get registered for the 2006 spring hunt. By the time I got the PC turned on and the info entered I had 32 minutes to go, otherwise I'd be too late. My memory is good but it's sure is short.

      So, that was you in the camo lund? I'm bummed, I have to head back to the cities tomorrow for a few days, then back up for at least a few weeks. Got the dock in and fired up to get out chasing some crappies till opener!

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

      got mine done........for the cabin.....ready for summer festivities!!!!!!   there was still frost in the ground...........but good gawd are the lakes low!!!!!
    • CigarGuy

    • SkunkedAgain
      How many walleye were on the stringer on their way out??? 
    • CigarGuy
      Saw the first boat of the year yesterday, heading towards Black Bay 
    • SkunkedAgain
      All of the webcams appear to be ice-free except for shore ice. It looks like you could navigate most of the way on Vermilion at this point. Happy boating everyone.

      I'm the same on honey do lists. I seem to feel better doing my list than my wife's list, even though they my be similar.
