Would it work to mark the holes and pull foward. Drill the holes and then back up so the holes line up again? Or would this be just to big of a pain in the rear to get them to line up???

I do this with my portable. I bring along a can of saw dust and after I set up, I sprinkle the saw dust to mark the holes. Then move the house, drill the holes, shovel the slush away and move the house back. Makes for a cleaner, leveler house. The sawdust is just organic material so there's no pollution worries.

We did this last year on URL. Just mark holes, pull forward, drill holes, back up and drop house. It's probably pretty hard to back up so the holes line up just right but it only took 2-3 guys to slide my 7X15 around on the ice to line 'em up. (that was without much snow though) It's a little bit of a pain but it's worth it not having to spend so much time cleaning holes and the floor of your house.

What I always did when tubing from a vehicle, I would push the pvc down to mark the spot then shove a 2x4 under the back wheel then pull forward drill the hole then back up to the 2x4. It works almost flawlessly for a vehicle. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

A buddy and I did this on Mille Lacs last weekend up at Shermans Flats. We marked eight holes by partially drilling them out a few inches and then pulled the house forward. We then drilled them out the rest of the way and backed the house up with one guy inside the house shouting when to stop. We were fishing within minutes. I would have to say that this worked well for us. Cheaper than an extension!

I will say if you are alone then it is tough and easier with help.

This is what I usually do with my wheel house:

Drill the holes as far as possible with the house in the air

Shovel out the junk

Lower the house and finish the holes.

works pretty well and keeps most of the wet stuff out side.

The best method is to get an Auger Mate drillnew.jpg available at Fish House Supply.

Works like a charm IMO.

I bet this works slick. By building up snow around the hole, then lowering the house, it will not allow air to circulate under the house and freeze up the holes. The built up snow acts as an insulator.

Good idea!

With my Drop Tongue house I just Drill with House up and keep the auger as far foward as possible. Line up everytime and no mess at all.

    • Fan of the stealth bomber look.
    • Did you shoot the rx1? If you did... what made you pick the rx3 over rx1?
    • just remember that water will follow the path of least resistance, meaning  that it may look like it is all contained to one area but the water may have been running across a beam to another area altogether.  I work in insurance and see and hear very unique situations often!.
    • I wish manufacturers would offer a truck that is "hunter friendly". 1. I want a truck that has keyless entry, so if I lock my keys in or lose them in the woods it doesn't matter. 2. I want to be able to turn my headlights off when the truck is running, so I can wait for shooting light without the high beams cutting through the trees. 3.The loud DING-DING-DING when the door is opened would not be necessary because of #1.  4. Run flat tires would be standard. 5. A handy man style jack with solid spots to jack from on the outside of the truck and 2 spares also. 6. Heated cup holder with direct wiring so when I get back to the truck after a morning sit in a cold tree, my coffee is still hot. No leaky thermos putting my coffee on my seat. 7. Winch and arm mounted to the bed to load big game with 1 hand.  8. Matte finish camo and no chrome to reflect sunlight. 9. Remote start works from over 1 mile away, or pre heated coolant so you have heat instantly. 10. Bullet holders on the door and dash so they aren't rolling around on the floor when you need them. 11. Spot light for pre season shining, where legal.  12. 4 wheel steering for dead end trail turnaround.  13. Built in heated/cooled dog kennel.   One wouldn't necessarily need all of these, but to customize the package to Hunter's preference would be great. What would your hunting rig have on it to improve your success and pleasure??
