View Full Version : CS 24L Unit

I have had the chance to try out the CS 24L unit with the two 30 watt speakers. The coldest weather conditions were last week when the morning temps were anywhere fron 2 to 9 degrees outside!

Here is what I found, this unit will run all day "if" you are hitting the mute button a lot during the day. If you let it run non stop at high volume you get 4 hours of play time. What I did was buy an extra set of AA rechargeable batteries and Abner was kind enough to send me some extra battery holders, the ones that hold 10 AA batteries. So now when the batteries wear down I can change them in a matter of seconds once I get the speaker in my hands. I already have the 10 spare batteries in another holder ready to go! I just pull out the old pack and slap in a new fully charged pack and I'm all set. After you connect the new batteries you have to shut the remote off and then turn it back on again, I think this is because you have disconected the first set and the remote does not read the new batteries? Anyway that is what I had to do to get it going again, the reason I am mentioning this is if you decide to get two sets of batteries (which I think is a good idea) and the remote does not work with the new set, just turn off the remote and then turn it on again and everything will be just fine after that.

Here are a few crow hunting photos for you guys.

I really like not having speaker cords to mess with, especially in cold weather. The cords kink more in cold weather.

Hi Weasel,

I have a lot to learn with all this new technology. I sent Abner some of the photos, if you know how to post them I can e-mail them to you Weasel and you could post them for me since I'm not smart enough!

Best regards,

Bob A.

Bob, that is why I had the Custom Shop install two plug ins in my CS-24 as opposed to the hard wired one battery pack. I have two 10aa packs that can be run simultaneously for a super heavy duty 10aa pack, or I can just plug in one, and when it is getting low, plug in the other to supplement it. That way you don't break continuity with the remote and just keep on calling.

Fellows, I was fortunate enough to be able to see the pictures of some of the fantasic crow shoots Bob experienced this season. If I didn't know it was true, I'd think it was impossible. Heck, my shoulder won't take the pounding the CrowMaster exposed his shoulder to. If there is a better crow hunter alive than this guy, I sure would like to meet him.

Here are some of the pictures from one fantastic crow hunting day as described by Bob. He and his buddy, Dick, shot a total of 589 crows that afternoon. It blows my mind to even think of that many crows flying by, let along hitting the ground stone graveyard dead. That's what they get when they mess with the old master Aronsohn though. Wow!!

Hello Al,

Thank you for posting some of my action photos that I took that afternoon. I love setups like that where you can see them coming through the trees mad as hell!

You see this is why I have friends like you who are smarter than I when it comes to figuring some of this stuff out!

Al, you're a good guy!

Bob, I'd trade a few computer smarts for what it takes to accomplish what you do in that crow blind, even what you do in one day would make me a good season!

For the rest of you fellows, here are some more pictures Bob sent that give you a pretty good feeling for his preparation, including the CS-24L set up with the 30W speakers, the spent shotgun hulls, and best of all the thousands of crows on the horizon. Man, if that don't charge you up, you need help!! (LOL ++++)

Hi Al,

The photos look good. Dick & I were 3 miles south of the roost in the action photos. The thing I like the best about getting away from the roost on afternoon shoots is that you get done sooner. By that I mean when you're shooting ends there is still enough daylight so you don't have to rush getting you're gear back into the pickup. Also there is much less chance you won't forget anything if you pick up while you can still see without headlights!

Hi Bob. Great pictures. I really enjoy the carnage shots along with your battle hardened fox hole shots.

Do you shoot any 20ga anymore??

Hi Glen,

I do at the start of the season when I hunt alone. Once I get them all shot up it will be all 12 gauge. The reason why is so that I only have one gauge and one type of ammo, just makes it more simple for me when I travel.
