  1. Is it better to hunt an open field or inside the woods for turkey? Sometimes I am unsure if I should set up on the edge of a field or in the woods for turkey hunting.
  2. My hitch lock by Master Lock is stuck. Left it on over the winter. Any ideas on how to open it? Right now key won't turn the lock to open.
  3. Hey guys, Can you guys give me advice on which turkey caller to buy and use for turkey hunting? This is my first time ever turkey hunting. There are so many turkey callers and different style on the market and I have no clue on which one to buy and use. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  4. My Oregon 400T GPS has a cracked screen. First of all, any place I can have it fixed at? Secondly, I could barely use the touch screen to navigate on my GPS. I just need my waypoint coordinates. Don't wanna lose my waypoints as I can careless about the GPS itself. Anybody know how I can transfer the GPS Waypoint coordinates out at this point?
  5. Hey guys, This is my first year turkey hunting. Which season is best to apply for the lottery turkey hunt, A or B? I would like to hunt in Northern, MN area. Thanks.
  6. Hi all, I usually drive my half ton truck out on lakes for ice fishing, but this season, I want to drive my 2wd sedan out there to save on gas. I only have all season tires on it. Would that be okay to not get stuck or would I at least need winter tires if I don't drive awd or 4x4 out? Anybody with experience driving a sedan with all season tires out ? Any issues?
  7. I am actually looking for ammunition with minimum expansion close to FMJ so there is minimum damage to the meat. Expansion means less tracking but a good chunk of the deer's meat is also destroyed.
  8. For my camera, it is weird, per the time stamp on the pictures, every 5 minutes exactly, it snaps a picture of nothing but the back ground. At first, I thought perhaps the branches in the background triggered the pictures, but that wasn't the case since I moved my camera to clear areas and it still snaps a picture every 5 minutes or 1 minute depending on my setting selections. My memory card would fill up with many pictures of nothing since it snaps a picture every 5 minutes and my battery would drain. There must be a setting I am missing to activate on motion only and not timer.
  9. I currently use Swhackers 100 grain. I am thinking about switching to Rage or another kind for better blood trails and hopefully, less tracking after the shot. What do you like to use and why?
  10. So, with my Moultrie A-30 Trail Camera, does anybody know how I would do the settings so that it will ONLY take pictures if activated by motion? Currently, I have played with its settings, and it kept taking pictures based on timer. So every 5 minutes it would take a picture or every 1 minute it would take a picture based on timer rather than motion sensor. Anybody familiar with it?
  11. I plan on hunting in an area that permits the usage of 30-06 rifle for deer. With that being said, what ammo do you recommend for deer hunting for 30-06? I would prefer something with minimum led exposure on deer meat and minimum expansion upon contact with a deer.
  12. Hi guys, I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year. However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts. My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it. Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow? I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly. Thank you.
  13. So what is the difference between the Lazer Synthetic and just a plain ole Lazer hand auger when it comes to cutting ice with a hand drill? Lazer Synthetic is lighter but does it cut any better?

  15. Does anybody know or have any information on where to donate an old boat too? I know for cars, you could call and have junk yards come and tow your car away for free. How about for boats? How do you get rid of an old boat?
