  1. BIGCLOUD, Look back to last March in the hunting posts you will find some crow hunting info. Chomp
  2. I got a Fox Pro it holds 30 sounds. Mine has about 20 coyote/distress and the rest are crow sounds. Works great
  3. The last time I checked in milaca for my shack a double door was $300 and a ramp door was $900. The ramp doors have been going up along with the steel and alum prices. Kind of hard to hand over 900 for a ramp door but what do ya do.
  4. I have a Yetti 6.5x16 and love it. I have not found or had any issues with anything breaking. It is a 2010 so it has been on many trips.
  5. I dont care what the ammo costs I will still shoot yotes every chance I get!!
  6. dogs, Yes my son is in his first year @ NDSU. He is doing well and likes it so there WILL be more trips out to Devils and I think he has me talked into coming out duck hunting this fall also.
  7. Unless you bought it from a guy in the back of a van..... DOWN BY THE RIVER. JUST RETURN IT. It's brand new and your wasting valuable fishing time trying to fix a bad auger bit.
  8. The next time I plan a trip out to Devils it will be in march during spring break. From the people I talked to it's a good time to be there. The perch put the feed bag on.
  9. Yea Woodland resorts bait shop had a whole freezer full. It is basically the only thing you can use for pike on tip ups. I would think every bait shop out there has them.
  10. Well we made it back from Devils. The fishing was not good and the drive was the worst I have ever encountered. The drive up was 7.5 hrs with picking up my son in Fargo. The drive home was 12 hrs. The worst was from Devils east to Grand forks radio was saying 45-50 mph winds and was a cross wind. Many times It had my wheel house completely sideways and a few times started pulling the truck with it. With the white out conditions it was by far the worst drive I have ever been thru. Fishing started Fri evening in the Bud bay area in 18' we got a few eyes which only 2 of them were over the 14" mark. Sat morning we dropped the camera down to see what we were marking on the graphs and we had a steady flow of eyes going thru but most would not show any interest. I tried many diff colors from big to small with no luck. after breakfast we got out in the trucks to find something better. We had 6 of us punching holes went thru 2 tanks of gas in the auger trying to find fish. We tried shallow to deep with no luck most fish graphed we couldn't get to bite. Sat night was even slower. Sun am the fish seemed to have moved out very few seen on the cam. We got on the move with the trucks again and worked our way east. We tried about 5 diff spots around the towers area to creel bay. Our last spot was a rock pile in 40+ FOW we picked up a few jumbos and 2 silvers. The perch were nice the biggest was 13". It was very nice out BUT then we were told about the STORM. We pulled the shacks onto a deep brake close to shore just down from woodland resort for the night. Only picked up a couple eyes and pike. Overall we kept 9 perch, 4 eyes, and 6 pike/2 silvers for a batch of pickled fish for a group of 6. Truck travel was fine off road but the wheel houses had to stay close to the higher traffic areas. Even tho the trip was not good I would like to go back and try for the perch again. It couldn't be any worse could it ????

  12. Do a search on C.L. in sporting goods there is a shop that repairs and sharpens augers always listed on there. I think it is located in the cities.
  13. I own a YETTI 6.5 x 16 and love it!!!! very light weight. Early ice i can pull it with my 4 wheeler with no problem. Ice castle dealers are always talking about the Yetti's alum cracking ??? Mine is a 2010 and I have NO PROBLEMS. Its been on many trips to RED, LEECH, MILACS and is going to DEVILS LAKE this coming weekend. All Yetti's have different interiors because the factory doesn't finish them the dealerships has them finished by their own local cabinet shops. You can buy them stripped and insulated ready for you to finish yourself. My fishing buddy has a ice castle and says he will never buy another one, his frame is rusting and the screws holding the diamond plate on are rotting off. If you ever look @ a YETTI and Ice Castle look @ the difference between the stone guard!!!! Ice Castle is PAPER THIN and YETTI is close to 1/8" thick. I have owned many trailers thru the years and living in MN with all the SALT on the roads I would never own a steel trailer.
  14. Looks like the snow for the most part missed Devils Lake ??? Anybody get out this weekend with any luck ??? 5 days and counting till our trip !! Thanks Chomp
