I've had the same problem. Try to set up on a gobbling bird in the morning as close as possible and call VERY softly and sparingly. Also try a different call you haven't used yet.

Good luck!

I used a shock gobble call after having a bird ignore me in the morning, when I was sure he couldn't hear me in the evening. He started my way shortly after that. I used it a few times in the 45 minutes it took me to come my way, but I pretty much did yelps once I knew he could hear them.

I am thinking that i had some real door knobs on the other side of the fence, who wouldnt put there calls down, it was yelp yelp pause, crow call, yelp yelp pause barred owl, all day, i am wondering if that could change the there behavier. but was exciding. do you think i should call on thursday?

I ran into the same problem during my hunt. I wound up killing my bird by going silent and scratching leaves... very minimal calling with no decoys. Late-season can be tricky if they've had some pressure. Keep at it.

That's a great late season approach SS.

Come on guys get down and dirty. Get after those bearded buggers! Be aggressive in your approach but calm with your calling.

well, with 3 hours to go and after spending 37 hours in the woods i finally got my bird, I have a bunch of pics i took, but becasue its walleye opener, it will be next week, My stats were 19lbs, 10 3/4" beard,

spures were 1 1/8" each. big bird and bigger rush!!! i thought it was kinda on the lighter side although its still big. Man(watching them two toms run and there beards swaying in the grass, man what a rush.) my question is i took the first one that i had a chance, but two gobblers ran towards me and the 2nd was really gray, there beards were about the same size, but the 1st one came to investage my ground blind, but i am wondering which one is the domminate? is it the one that investages or the one that sits back and watches,

Jumpacablez,

I don't know the answer to that one. But nice bird anyway. All that time in the woods is always good times. It makes the reward better anyway.

Awesome job and congrats on the bird! Think winter was tough on them, hearing of lots of 2 year old birds that were in the mid-upper teens in weight.

Still waiting for my bro to email the pics of mine so I can get it registered.

On a side note some guys I know put in a pot for the heaviest bird each year. Thus far out of 29 only 7 birds are in. Crazy weather and again a tough winter I think.

Who else on Team 1 is hunting yet?

Teamers,

A first for me...........no gobbler to plug into the teams total. I reckon it may be a pay back for thr comment bout heading to the land of the 5 bearded monster! Saw plenty of birds and surely worked plenty. Right now I'm planning to be slightly more selfish bout whacking a mature bird next spring.......talk is always cheap!

Congrats to those that smoked one.

Time to start chasing spring chinook and smallmouth.

Cheers,

WD

      @AlwaysFishing23 Sounds like some good ingenuity there.     I found the manufacturer of the unit I have in my 6 inch bit and ordered a new one During breakfast this morning.  Should be good to go.

      that can be nasty with no handle

      I put my lazer bit on my dewalt brushless the other day with a homemade adapter (piece of pipe and a bolt) tryed it out the other day and was amazed, very smooth setup and since I have the max XR kit I have the nice lithium battery’s ( 2 and 4 ah) so I’m set for first ice drilling. Super light setup. Only downside is I don’t have a size handle for the drill so I just have to be mindful and not break my wrist.

      Just checked the ice this afternoon and Shoe has 2.5" of ice and is 100% ice covered with some river current areas.  Summer access is no longer open.    I will be starting to ice fish as soon as I am done deer hunting in front of my house.    I predict a limit of walleyes first night out.     Don

      Saw those at Scheels in St. Cloud this afternoon.  Light!  The sticker shock blew back my hat a little but there’s always at least 1 significant upgrade to the ice fishing arsenal every year.  It’s not my upgrade yet but maybe later.  I was checking for a drill adapter for my new to me 8 inch Nils bit.  I like the 6 so much on the drill but sometimes I want an 8.   Anyone have an extra laying around?!

      Sounds terrific.   Having spent my career in the Tech field I am always cautious as to what startups are claiming.  But more power to them, I hope that they can achieve everything they are aiming for.    15 ms seems really fast.   It will be great if so.      Note, claiming a lot more than can be delivered is not limited to startups.    I have run into it many times inside an established tech power.     Fortunately, we are only like a half mile from the fiber on 24 so our DSL works fine...   Before that we had access.  Before that we had 26k dial up.

      Here you go. Took this on the way out of town today. Hopefully, you can zoom in on it!
    • eyeguy 54
      its nice and light.  sold other battery. deal with it. put 5.5 cans of soup in a plastic bag and lift it.  that's the difference

      Not quoted numbers!  Lets see the whole unit with each on a scale pal! 🤨

      15 ms round trip from/return to space is what SpaceX is claiming now. Pretty impressive if it pulls off.   The issue with Hughes is the position of orbit of the satellite. Hughes satellites are in Geo-synchronous orbit with the earth, which means the satellite's orbit moves at the exact same rate as the earth turns. That way the satellite remains at relatively the same spot over the earth. The trouble with geo-sync orbits is that they are a long ways away. 22,500 miles, give or take. That's a long ways for a signal to round-trip. And there's not really a high-demand capacity solution.   The new constellation model of internet satellites uses a bunch, like say 4000, of really small satellites, about the size of a desk. These are in low-earth orbit, only 150 miles from earth by comparison. Capacity is handled by allowing satellites to share data between themselves. So if one satellite is overloaded, it will off-load data throughput to another close-by satellite via peer-to-peer communication. It's a pretty cool engineering model.   As you can probably tell, this is in-line with what I do for a living. But i am pretty hyped about the possibilities for people like us, who will never have optic cable strung to our remote location.
