Well it's my first year after these guys and I was able to get out on Sunday just after getting back from a quick visit out to ND. Set up at about 3:30. I set my blind up into the trees down a ways from last time. Since I guessed they would come from my left I set my decoy up about 15 yards to the right of the blind so if they came out and came towards the decoy and stopped short I'd be in a good spot. The plan worked! I did a short series of calls and just before 5:00, 2 toms came along the edge of the woods and sure enough they stopped right in front of me and fluffed up to impress my decoy. THWACK! 18 yard shot. 20 1/2 pound bird with about a 9 inch beard officially measured on an MSRD board. grin I had the mouth closed but not sure about the tail. LOL

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
