    Besides the draw hunt there have been late season registration hunts from November 1 - mid Dec. Bad news is that you have to (or had to) register in Port Lions I believe the hunt numbers are RG 471 - like 475 which include kaluida, crown, center ,terror and Uganik. Best of luck....

    I have a permit for it this year, but with all the snow I am thinking it could be a bit crowded as there may all be a couple available options that are ice free for landing. Lets hope for the best & a fast thaw for the animals sake.

    I drew dg474. it doesn't look like there will be that many options unless a few of the lakes are bigger than they look on the maps.
    Maybe my goat hunt will turn into a trophy deer camping trip. Should be fun either way.

    when do you plan on hunting, early season or late season?

    Hi igloo Probably the 2nd 3rd week of september. Talked to andrews yesterday, jeff said there's a handful of lakes to land on and it's a little earlier than most folks go.

    What do you think about late september brwnbr? I was just thinking i didn't want to be crawling around in the snow and ice.

    typically theres no snow and ice in october, that usually don't show up till mid november or later.
    late sept weather might be a little bit better though. oct you are loosing daylight pretty fast. but the leaves are off and the the grass is sometimes coming down. late sept be prepared for bushwackin' thru leafy alders and green straight up grass if you go in from the last water.
    stay on ridge lines, best bet for a game trail on a ridge line.
    goats will be there either time frame..just a matter of preference. but until you go at least once you won't know what you'd prefer.

    I was gonna go the 2nd weekof Sept. That chagned today as I have a retirement party to be at in Michigan Sept 8th. Also have a friend going, she's never been on a real hunt, so I'm shooting for the last week of Aug, ya shorter fur, but they be jsut as tasty, and more sunlight, hopefully I'll be able to enjoy some high altitude sunsets and sunrises instead of just gray rainy sky like the end of Sept.
