Automatic clay target thrower

Recommended Posts

mechanictim

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.)

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
