Probably one of my favorite ice fishing forums each year, what's new out there?

I've been using the Strike Sensor for years with all kinds of set ups and has always worked well. Only a 200 yard range, but plenty for my applications.

I just ordered one of the Vulture kits. 106.00 for 1 sensor and the receiver. I'm a little leery about it, had bad experiences with the "trip wire" type lights in the past, like the Frabill Arctic Siren, but I'm giving this a go.

I do have awesome staff!  I would hope part of it is that I've been good to them over the years as well!

Yeah, I would never set tipups that far (it would be illegal).  However, I'm overrun with raccoons on my 10 acres.  I will be setting up this sensor on a live trap.  That will be cool, not having the check the trap every day and knowing when you have something!

Very interesting system! I love this thread.
I increased range on my BlueTips when I purchased the power booster. It reminds me to get some new batteries for the year. Range isn’t a mile, but would never put tip ups that far away anyways. I think my new range is at least 400 yds.

Vulture

Anyone hear of Vulture Systems?  They make a sensor system for tip ups (and other uses). Don’t know if it is brand new or not.  My staff bought me one for bosses day today.  1 mile range!  The sensor is huge and honestly, not the most user friendly.  You have to open the sensor with 3 thumb screws just to turn it on and off.  BUT, it seems pretty awesome.  A triggered sensor not only flashes a very bright red LED on the sensor, it causes a light flash and beep on the handheld unit.  Handheld can receive signals from up to 6 sensors and has 1-6 numbered buttons so you know which sensor is tripping.  

Very cool toy that I look forward to trying.  But very expensive.  Handheld with 1 sensor is over $100.  If you want to set up a handheld with 3 sensors, you are at about $250.  Handheld and 6 sensors and your at just over $425!  Yikes!  But diehards, especially night fisherman, may find it a worthwhile investment.

Didn't trophy strike partner with nils last year?

“Clam posted a picture on their IG of a new electric auger at the MN state fair. Didn't see any info on it.”

The company that makes Trophy Strike augers approached Clam about branding some with the Clam name. So they’ve been around for a bit as it’s the same auger as a Trophy Strike.

Clam posted a picture on their IG of a new electric auger at the MN state fair. Didn't see any info on it. Anyone going to the fair this weekend??
