The draw hunt is two days sat/sun right before regular season begins on Monday...my wife and I drew it twice so it must not be all that tough to draw. It's a long way to LBL almost to the Mississippi, it's way way way overcrowded, however it's the most beautiful place I've ever hunted besides PA.. I saw cars/trucks from 3/4 of the USA parked there, you can see elk/bison and God knows what else, lots of Eagles, Armadillos and I saw one copperhead ..lots to see if your touristy. I forgot to mention the most ticks I've ever seen anywhere... I got Lyme disease after my first visit , take some doxicylin with you..
