Just wanted to say good luck with the season starting tomorrow.

I hope everyone has a safe and memorable hunt with those Toms spitting a drumming in your face. Just remember it's not the gobbler it's the gobble,for the first timers out their they are like nothing you have hunted before they will tie you in knots and have you ready to quit some times and then it can change in a second.

Good luck be safe and make sure of your target. I cant wait for the pictures to start rolling in tomorrow.

Hoping to take my 12 year old out for his first hunt on Saturday. We will be out there if the weather looks decent on Sat.

Haven't been online in a while but scored last Wed on a 23lb with 1" hooks and 9.5" beard - should have pics soon.

Being older for sure and maybe wiser I stayed in bed and listened to it rain. Went out late morning and called one in right away but couldn't seal the deal. Had a pair show mild interest but never came in range. Couple hours later after a move I believe one of the pair made a fatal mistake.

Seems like hit and miss depending on who you talk to - overall numbers are down around here.

My pops heads out tomorrow - he went out yesterday morning to listen and heard 3 different birds in the area.

Good luck to all who will be heading out yet!

Went out to scout last night and had to cut it short as I kept running into strutting toms. Saw 6 in about 15 minutes and decided to back out before I bumped too many. I still have a week and a half to wait.

Getting excited to hunt Saturday! Alot of turkeys around and hopefully I can call a big tom in! Where my cabin is, I hear them in the morning when the crows are calling and they are in the woods within a hundred yards from me. Too bad it's next to a bunch of lake cabins as this would be a slam dunk for a gobbler! grin

      I'm pretty sure there is a setting on your Hummer that lets you set where (voltage level) you want to get the "low battery" warning or dropout. At least mine does ... and I temporarily reset it once to keep it from dropping out each time I started the outboard. Of course I wouldn't advise that for a long-term fix as you might go to start the engine one time and get nothing but clicks. Is it possible that setting got changed at one time and maybe it's set too high?

      Well I got skunked on my first ever attempt to fish muskies. It was still a lot of fun and I will try it again!

      DNR urges people to use caution when operating farm equipment Exceptionally dry conditions in the northwest part of the state have contributed to several small fires over the past week. To prevent a possible wildfire, the Department of Natural Resources urges extreme caution when using farm equipment right now.  To reduce the chances of starting a wildfire when working in the field, follow these steps: Make sure machinery is well maintained and working properly to prevent overheating and the formation of sparks. When cutting or mowing, be aware of rocks that may cause sparks if struck by mower blades. Check that all fire extinguishers are appropriate for the size of the machinery, are fully charged, and are easily accessible. Carry an ABC rated fire extinguisher – it can be used for electrical and petroleum-based fires originating on the tractor and for vegetative fires. Check and remove combustible vegetation from motors, exhausts, ledges and brackets several times a day. Remove debris from the surface of the baler using a portable gas-powered leaf blower. Keep hay in groups of 10 bales or fewer and at least 100 feet away from structures or other ignition sources. Firebreaks – 30 feet of mowed grass, bare ground, or rock between bale groups – will help prevent fire from extending to additional bales. Frequently check to see if stored hay is hot or has internal fire (noted by a caramel or strong burning odor, visible vapor or smoke, strong musty smell, or all of the above). Do not move overheated or smoldering hay. Immediately call 911 if fire occurs and provide clear directions to your location. Check the weather – avoid running equipment on days with warm temperatures, high winds, and low humidity. Plan your day – take advantage of mornings and evenings that tend to have calmer winds, cooler temperatures, and higher humidity. Find more information about fire danger at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions. ### Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      From what I'm hearing I believe I will just keep my K-Drill. I have no doubts whatsoever that Nils is a great product and Frank does awesome work on the blades. Many of my friends have used his services before. I drill a lot and almost always on dirty wind swept ice last year was terrible on the lakes I was on. 2 sets of blades for me last year first set got dull around January then replaced to the second set at the end of the year. I did call K Drill today they said that's normal for the usage I do. No cause for alarm at all. So I'm always looking for the grass is greener on the other side type person. No hurt feelings here fellas both are good augers and I will not say bad things about them just thought I was missing the boat but as someone said does it really matter if you get the hole drilled 2 seconds faster? It matters how many fish you pull up that hole😁

      Here's a thought that just occurred to me. I was having some similar issues with my sonar unit. While troubleshooting noise feedback from my trolling motor, one thing I tried was to add a ferrite core filter on the power cable to my HB 596c. Now that I think about it, I have not had a problem with my HB shutting down on starting my outboard since I added the filter. It's possible the ferrite core is attenuating the voltage fluctuation just enough.    Got the clamp-on filter online for less than $5.00. Something like this one from ebay. You need to get the right size to fit your HBs power cable. Mine was 1/4".   Inexpensive thing to try.

      So there is Trout in there as well?  Where is this Holy Buckets Lake?  😯
    • BobT
      Now, I'm puzzled. Both units should therefore be experiencing the same brownout conditions when you start your outboard. I wonder if a surge suppressor might be helpful? Is the bow mount unit a newer unit and if so, maybe it has updated technology that is less susceptible to the voltage drop. I'm just thinking out loud now.

      Wow, nice gill😁
    • Fish Head
      Yes they are. 
    • Rick G
      Mr Pike, if you are going through blades that fast on the k-drill, you will certainly dull them out just as fast or faster on a Nils. The Ripper style blades that come on the K are about as good as it gets as far as durability goes.
