      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 .

I agree, do it your self. I worked at Nowthen for 7 years on and off. Started from skinner to cutter and ended at counter sales. I worked at meat market during off season as well. It was fun and I learned alot of stuff I still use to this day.

I have heard most of the people who used to go to Nowthen meats, now go to Dehmer's Meat Market in Alberville.

Good luck!

I knew someone would come up with the 'do it yourself' line. Unless you've watched it be done, or have someone to help you, or have lots of experience butchering other animals, its a pretty intimidating process. Plus you have to have the facilities to do it. Then theres the warm early season spoilage factor, Uspen is doing the right thing, asking ahead to find some place to take his deer.

But blackjack....how will a person ever learn it the don't give it a try?

I agree it is hard, but "go figure" the internet has a lot of good links and butcher charts showing what part of the deer makes the best steaks, chops, hamburger, etc...

The best thing is if you can get a few friends together to help out. Which means they don't just stare at you and the deer while they drink your beer!

How about something a little closer to Edenpraire like Everitts Meats on 38th and Cedar in MPLS.

You're right, theres a first time for everything!!! smile.gifsmile.gif

For years I had taken my deer to butcher shops, then two years ago I got a doe with my bow and got a friend to help me. Went ok, he showed me how to get started, how to burn the hair off the meat, etc. The cutting up got to be kind of a hack job, we didn't end up with much for steaks. Then I went on the internet as you instucted, and also got the Hasslegrave video. That helped but its still not as easy as any of those directions say.

If he can find a few guys to help, especially someone that has done it before, yeah go for it. Otherwise a butcher shop is not a bad option.

Note to Uspen, the basic cutting and wrapping into steaks, burger, and roasts will cost you about $75 but once you start specifying 10 pounds of polish sausage, 15 pounds of jerky, etc your bill will run into some serious $$$ in a hurry!!

hey gents thanks for all the info. Yeah well i do know how how to skin and quarter game we used to do it since we were young with other animals. The only thing i have never really done is combining different meats such as pork and venison. as far as quartering im cool with that. I should have been a bit more clearer. maybe taking some parts of the venison to be grounded or mixed for hamburger, or made into jerky. I would also like to know where to buy the white wrapping paper used in the meat markets for wrapping meat

If you have a membership, Sams Club sells a decent size roll of freezer paper.

I have tried Von Hansons meats, from someone elses deer, it was good. I do my own sausage, jerky, burger and steaks. Sometimes I will want something else, if so we bring it to Schmidts in Nicolette.

Blackjack gives good advice. I would see if a friend will let you help with their's if they do their own. That's what I plan on doing soon. They'll welcome the help and you'll learn firsthand. They just may not let you come near the backstraps or tenderloins the first time. grin.gif

This is the guy that does our deer processing every year out of his house. I just dropped some scrap off to grind, and I know he's butchering a deer that a guy just took with a bow. During deer season he brings in a bunch of guys that he cut's meat with and it's an assembly line process.

He's in Elk River. Ron 763-441-4194

With that old of a phone # and the first name, I think I know him!

Has he worked out of his house all the time or did he used to work at a market once?

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping
    • IceHawk
      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
