Waterfowl Junkie Bird Hitch


Recommended Posts

Anyone seen or tried the Waterfowl Junkie Bird Hitch. Looks like it would get the job done, but would like to know someone who has used one before laying out the cash.

Thanks,

Folke

you know if you cut the head off step on the wings and pull on the legs you will get the same result! I'll keep my $$$$$.

breasting them out isn't too bad for me and does not take too long. Maybe a little more mess and work but I would save my $$$ as well.

yeah breasting them out is easy, but if your out of state and are cleaning the birds you will have to leave a wing on the bird.

who says I have to have a wing on??? I just don't get caught...jk yeah that is true. I've done standing on the wing and pull feet on pheasants from ND but not waterfowl. But not only out of state you need to have a wing on for transportation, it goes for the same in MN, I believe so...correct me if I'm wrong.

I think that MN requires one wing. don't know for sure if you need to leave the head also.

The hitch is great if you ever plan on piling up the snows there is no other way to go. We cleaned 45 birds last fri. in about 15-20 min. no lie, 4 guys, 1 pullin the birds through the machine 2 guys pulling the skin away and 1 guy cutting a wing with a tin snips. Takes the "Task" away from cleaning birds trust me!

so sounds like a good investment if a guy is fortunate enough to shoot a ton of birds

A guy I hunt withs company stamps them out,, we got one and used it this year in MO....... great product for being legal.

I know with two guys you can breast them out a ton faster than messing with the bird hitch, but then you are not legal.

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April. 
    • Kettle
      Someone said 4 inches in the past week, more expected this weekend. A few roads, including county roads that are asphalt ended up with sink holes. Lakes are the highest I've ever seen in the 30+ years coming to the area and now living here. Several people lost trees Tues night
    • smurfy
      Dang Kettle  that bites. Great to hear fishing was good though.   How much rain you get up that way?
    • Dash 1
      50 in 6 hours is great. Boat issues really put a damper on a great day though. Hope you get it fixed quickly.
