      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

The one in Eden Prairie is excellent. It's right across from Flying cloud. Has a roof and layered targets.

I know of 2. One in osseo and one up by anoka. The one in osseo is on the north side of 81 just west of the high school, I've never shot there however. It's an indoor. There is a very nice outdoor with 3D target range up by Anoka off of Hanson just north of the anoka "main street". Just turn right by the compost if your headed north on Hanson.

You're right, the one in eden prairie is a nice one, kinda small though. However, last night i went down there and couldn't use it because there was a kids night there, so a guy refered me to a new one in shakopee. outdoors, lots of room 3 targets each at 20,30,40 yards, and the locals say big plans in the future, possibly targets out to 90 yards. On the NW corner of the 101 bridge south of 212 in shakopee. Unfortunately for me it is a 23 mile drive, but, lots's of room and it was free, and close to the Lions Tap.

The Gander Mountain in Lakeville has one, not sure if the one in E.P., or elsewhere do, though.

That is helpful news about the Eden Prarie range and the Shakopee range. Someone said there is one in Chaska, anyone know where? Also would like to know about any rifle ranges in the area. I would like to shoot a muzzleloader out to 100 or 150 yards.

The range in Chaska is off County Rd 110 across from the VFW. You have to drive into the parking lot across the road from it as it is not visible from he road. There are 20,30,40 yrd targets. Also try cabin fever in victoria, they have nice indoor range.

I just went to the EP Gander yesterday to shoot, their archery range (if you can even call it that) is pretty lame. You have to go through the Lodge to get to it and it's just a 3 lane at most wide range. They basically use it as storage so it's cluttered with treestands and boxes. Wouldn't recommend going there. I've been meaning to try out that city range at Staring park or the one down by Shakopee.

There is an outdoor range in Shoreview on Lexington, north of 96 on the west side, its part of the old ammo manufacturing land. There is 8-10 lanes and they have hay bales, but its sometimes pretty beat up.

There is Bunker Lake as well that closer to Coon Rapids and they have an outdoor 30d range and an indoor range as well.

Capra's on 65 south of Highway 10 also has a shooting range on their second floor.

Those are the ones I know of.

Anyone know of any rifle ranges in the west metro area. I would like to shoot my muzzloader out to at least 100 yards. The only one I know of is Caribou in LaSuer and that is a hall for me. Someone said there is a private gun club in Waconia. Anyone know anything about that?

I'm not aware of any place to shoot out that way for a firearms. The DNR has a list of all the shooting ranges in the state. There is a club in Chaska/Victoria, but its completely private.

      I figured I would start up a new thread for us to use for the winter now that things are starting to set up and guys may be starting to creep out on the bays and smaller water.   I did some more poking around on Pike Bay this morning and I don't have anything much new to report. We've got less than an inch of fluffy snow on the ice and things healed up after the warm front this week. I worked my way from shore out into the middle of the bay and ice was relatively uniform between 5.25 and 5.5 inches of nice clear ice. Earlier this week I checked all landings on the Tower end and everything was iced up except for open water way out in Big Bay appearing to mostly be all West of Birch/Ely islands. Not sure if all the recent strong winds from North and South have changed that status though. I'm still sticking with my original guess of December 2 for my first trip off McKinley on 5 inches.   Good luck this winter to all and Be Safe!

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
