Automatic clay target thrower

1 post in this topic

There was a post this spring on one of the forums about auto matic throwers. At the time I was looking into getting one as well, noone replied to the post and now I can't find it to reply. I was looking at the Do-all thrower in Cabela's which at first got some pretty shakey reviews, and then started getting some more positive ones. A couple of weeks ago they put the Do-alls on sale and with cabela's return policy I figured why not and got one.

the assembly instructions were good and I had the unit assembled in less than thirty minutes. The first time I tried using it the throwing arm would not rotate to the launching position at 6 O'clock it would stop at the 8 or 9 O'clock position and had to be helped to the launch position. This happened about 90% of the time through a box of targets. It did work Ok a few times but never more than three times in a row. The next day I called the companies customer Hotline and got a voice mail that was full. I called another customer service number from the instructional DVD and got a service rep. She was able to give me a couple of tips about about lubrication though not completly accurate were close enough for me to try some things. Since greasing a cam and plunger shaft the thrower has thrown over 500 targets with out a problem from the thrower.

Being a guy who likes things cheap when I can, I have been using the Remington targets I get at Walmart. The Do-All trap has thrown these targets with only a few broken targets and has even thrown the ones that flew through the occasional hole in my patterns that I pick up to check that they were indeed unhit, with few problems. Not to bad to be able to use preflown targets.

The targets are thrown a good 60+ yards and quite fast out of the thrower. By angling the thrower up about 45 degrees or so I can shoot clays coming straight at and over me much like pass shooting at geese, since the thrower is automatic no one gets pellets raining on them like a manual thrower would.

So if you are the poster loking for info on automatic target throwers here is my review on the "cheapie" Do-all aerial assalt thrower

Good product and good custumer service, once you get to a person.(Call on a midweek morning.)

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
