Waterfowl Junkie Bird Hitch

12 posts in this topic

Anyone seen or tried the Waterfowl Junkie Bird Hitch. Looks like it would get the job done, but would like to know someone who has used one before laying out the cash.

Thanks,

Folke

you know if you cut the head off step on the wings and pull on the legs you will get the same result! I'll keep my $$$$$.

breasting them out isn't too bad for me and does not take too long. Maybe a little more mess and work but I would save my $$$ as well.

yeah breasting them out is easy, but if your out of state and are cleaning the birds you will have to leave a wing on the bird.

who says I have to have a wing on??? I just don't get caught...jk yeah that is true. I've done standing on the wing and pull feet on pheasants from ND but not waterfowl. But not only out of state you need to have a wing on for transportation, it goes for the same in MN, I believe so...correct me if I'm wrong.

I think that MN requires one wing. don't know for sure if you need to leave the head also.

Head and wing in MN on ducks, wing only on geese in MN. Head and wing must be "fully feathered".

The hitch is great if you ever plan on piling up the snows there is no other way to go. We cleaned 45 birds last fri. in about 15-20 min. no lie, 4 guys, 1 pullin the birds through the machine 2 guys pulling the skin away and 1 guy cutting a wing with a tin snips. Takes the "Task" away from cleaning birds trust me!

so sounds like a good investment if a guy is fortunate enough to shoot a ton of birds

A guy I hunt withs company stamps them out,, we got one and used it this year in MO....... great product for being legal.

I know with two guys you can breast them out a ton faster than messing with the bird hitch, but then you are not legal.

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
