It was pretty crappy, I took a day off of work for this. If it wasn't for this group there would have been maybe 15 hunters there instead there were 50+.

-pack a lunch
-double up on your anxiety meds that day
-have about 10-15 spots you're interested in and find out before you go if they're far enough away from an occupied dwelling. Also, look at the online map they post and make sure the spots you want, aren't already blocked off by the land owners.
-If you're not picked in the first 20 numbers, plan on being there most of the day
-There are always a few DNR officers at the drawings, so its the perfect time to ask some questions you may have.
I'm not sure which county drawing you're going to, but AA county usually has a few hundred people show up. It is not a day I look forward to, but it makes it worthwhile if you're able to pull a decent spot or two.
