I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.
I appreciate the input!
Males were on the beds last night on a lake here in the metro.
Not my deal, so I let 'em be.
Which means I didn't catch much at all compared to last week.
Oh well, be a couple weeks before the summer patterns start happening.
Already a hint of cottonwood floating on the water though. *booooo*
I would agree with Purple. Just add an inexpensive unit of your choice for the maps. You could even use a cheap tablet with the navionics app on it for the mapping, if money was an issue. You can buy a 7 inch generic (RCA) tablet for around 50 bucks. A few bucks more gets a holder.
I would just buy a couple different boxes and pattern them with all of the chokes and see what shoots and patterns the best.
Depending on your hunting style a more open choke if the birds will be closer. I will normally have the tighter choke as the way I hunt the birds will be farther away but I also shoot an O/U and tend to let the birds get out a ways before I shoot. So an IC/MOD may be a good choice also. But like I said I would pattern the gun with each and different loads just to get a feel for it and whats best for her confidence.
I shoot steel all the time and I tend to shoot 4 shot and late season even 2 shot to deal with late season hearty winter birds.
Welcome to HSO!
It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.
My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.
Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.
I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes.
What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P. Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
