H-Bird.. 88 feet away???

7 posts in this topic

Ok, so fishing yesterday.. On my bird units.. My boat icon, and the trail it leaves were according to the unit 88 feet apart?.. I am going to call bird some day this week.. has any body else had this issue?

the really hard thing is.. do I pay attention to the "track" or the "boat icon"?

Save your tracks if you want, then "clear current track".

It doesn't do it all the time but once in a while they go their own way but eventually they come back again.

I haven't nuked my track memory yet but I will after the season is over.

You may have your track points set to automatically toss them out every 88 feet (this is a adjustable user field in the options)? This over time will eat up internal memory and fill up your track memory log, and oldest track points may be deleted automatically to insure the new points are maintained.

You can select the tracks to place points automatically by time, or by distance, or manually.

The time option will set more close proximity points depending on the time set, distance may also do this...both if set close together will eat up memory rather quickly.

As was mentioned previously periodically clearing your old tracks/trails will help this out. And then you may determine how often you wish track points to be set as to best refine your trails and routs.

Back up tracks to a chip that you wish to save, and than zap them out of the memory. This helps to limit confusion for you on tracks/trails/routes and will enhance performance of the unit.

Your waypoints will remain after you clear the tracks, just the bug trails will go away. Backing up your waypoints from time to time to a chip is smart, just to be safe.

I've had this happen, SimilarIsland is right.

Save your tracks if you want, then "clear current track".

    • whitefish maybe? 
    • If I understand correctly this only for bows. I have a crossbow and from what I understand it is considered a firearm. Is that the case? My son has a bow and has the archery tag.
    • so ... dillon has a bird to enter and 1957 is still hunting? looks like we are in good shape, but lot of guys still hunting in MN and WI, i assume   ended my season friday. got the blind set up before the shower started. it quit right before sunrise time and there was lots of gobbling on the roost a couple hundred yards away but none where i heard them close by when scouting a couple days earlier. a few distant gobbles on the ground, then nothing after the rain and wind picked up again. finally saw a hen step out of the woods about 830 and start heading toward me. soft yelps kept her coming, then out steps a big tom and several more hens heading my way but when they got to an opening in the fence from the stalk field into another timber, the tom paused, i had the bead on him, decided it was too far, and then they were gone the rain quit a half hour later and i ramped up the calling with some louder yelps and cutts. a few minutes later a head comes over a rise in the field and its a solo tom. he ignored the dekes and headed toward the fence gap where the others went, stopped and fanned without gobbling, but some soft yelps, clucks and purrs kept him coming my way. dropped him at 40 yards after stepping it off to where he lay, i kept going to where the other tom left the field and it was 55 big steps, so glad i didnt shoot went 23, 10, 1 but the rain cut loose again on the way back to the truck so i didnt take pictures  
    • If you were anywhere close to southern Minny I would invite you over and let you drive mine and show you the things I look for both in the jeep and plow since mine seems pretty close to what you are looking for. If you have any questions PM me.
    • Good luck PFUNK! Looking like that will be my next day out too. forecast looks good as well!
    • I think the TJ might be the best choice with the 4.0 which is what I did.I bought the plow used after the fact. I got the plow for 1200 but the wiring was not good nor was the mount so I had a new custom, heavier duty mount made at a fab shop and I bought a brand new wiring kit from Western. I also bought all stainless bolts for it so there are no rust issues with them. Wiring the plow was a task. I basically had to remove the entire interior including console, seats and many dash parts to run the wiring.   One thing to consider- There is really very little room for much of anything in them. Running new wires, adding a speaker anywhere or even having 2 guys, 2 guns, a dog and a cooler is a tight fit. The back seat works for kids but not adults and mostly I take my back seat out so I have at least some room to put stuff. Running the wiring to run the plow took probably 8 hours or more spread over a few days and for a bigger guy it's pretty much impossible to reach under the dash and run wires,connect to fuse blocks even with the seat removed.    But the ability to take off the top and cruise the gravel roads with no doors while hunting is not possible in basically any other vehicle except maybe a Manx Dune buggy which has also been on my bucket list and those aren't 4x4. 
    • Anyfish is correct,I will add you can buy a archery tag and hunt the entire rest of the season in any turkey zone.
