Good auger tip

Recommended Posts

You know that little black rubber strap that holds the protective cover on the end of your auger? You can purchase them from Strikemaster, 2 for $5.95, BUT they charge you over $6 for shipping. If you call the company directly and ask about them they will ship them out USPS for about a $1.50. Good way to save a few bucks.

I just saw the same straps from Jiffy for $5.95 a pair at MIlls Fleet farm. I am sure that these straps fit most of the auger covers made out there.

here's a tip to prevent loosing them, probly have to drill a hole but put a screw across the slot where the rubber strap hooks to the cover, to hold one end of the strap permanently on the protective cover.

Ive done this on my jiffys and have never lost one.

Spin some electrical tape around one end, that will keep the "Rubber-snubber" in place. If that looks too shabby for your taste, then Spin on one wrap of tape then dip the one end in Plasti-Dip that is used for tools handles.(Allow to dry and dip a second coat) That will coat the end and keep the snubber firmly in place.

Works well too if one end cracks and the snubber will not stay put. Solves two problems at one.

I bought about one foot of bungee cord when the black rubber strap that came with the auger broke. Tie a knot into each end of the bungee...waalaa!!

I'll have to second marmot's plan. I purchased a bungee and secured one end to the cap with a small bolt and washer, then to the other end I put a piece the holds your door open (the piece that keeps the cylinder from coming back). The one end of this is T shaped so I made a slot in the other end of the cap with a drill and now it never comes off unless I want it to.

    • Figured I'd loop back on this with an update.  I ended up getting the Weber Spirit 3 burner.  Picked it up at Ace Hardware.  Its the same price everywhere ($449) but Ace will assemble it, deliver it, and haul away the old one for no charge.  Bought it Saturday morning had it sitting on the back patio by 3pm that same afternoon.   I ended up looking at a lot of grills including many brands of gas grills, pellet grills, and some charcoal grills.  There were some other gas grills that I liked, they looked to be made solidly from good materials and they came at a decent price.  However, they all lacked a decent warranty.  The webers use less stainless steel than some of the others and I'm not 100% sure what the china production will do to the quality and longevity of a Weber but they do come with the best warranty that I saw.  I believe grates and flavorizer bars have a 5 year warranty and everything else has a 10 year warranty.  Customer service and part availability was also a big selling point.  Weber parts look to be easily available and if you do end up having to replace the grate, flavorizer bars, and burners it will only set you back $150 which should get you many more years out of the grill.    I let my almost 3 year old son pick the color since he came with to help pick it out.  I couldn't argue with his choice of red.  It is clearly the fastest looking grill, now I just need to add a racing stripe. 
    • Saturday morning I was able to put my tag on a nice bird. If I did no get to put some scouting time in I would of moved too fast. I knew these bird was going to show up but he never made a peep on roost or the ground. I was able to call in the hens with him following. The hens yelped twice on the ground and that was it. Had other birds gobbling but I knew this guy was around. It was him with 3 Jakes and 3 hens that pretty much stayed by themselves and nothing to do with the larger group of birds. I was able to see him the Saturday before opener and trail cameras showing he was coming through around 720 each morning. I shot him at 7:15 plan worked out great. 20 Gauge is becoming my favorite gun for turkeys. He was just a couple oz’s shy of 24lbs. double beard 11inch, spurs 1inch. Some big birds dropping. My dads was 25lbs and Protourbait above 24. Might head back to NE this weekend see how the week goes. I have WI left for a couple tags.
