      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 .

moving to new areas

how many times do you all hunt one area before moving on to new areas(even if there is sign of deer but not seeing them)

I try to keep my hunts down to a mininum, if I have other alternatives. I have been doing quite a few one or two day hunts on WMA's scattered along with my private land hunts.

Unless I am really targeting one certain buck, I really try to leave as little information that I was there that I can.

I think the bigger question is how many other choices do you have?

i have 4 different areas that i hunt, both private and wma's..i am just curious what others do.. i usually hunt 3 or 4 times at one stand then move to a new area and make my rounds until i end up back at the first area...unless of course like you said targeting a certain buck

I never hunt the same stand 2 days in a row. The deer will get educated very fast on whats going on. You may not see the deer there but they will probably see you or hear or small your scent. I always try to hunt a different locations every day to noty educate those deer.

I'm with Harvey, I like to have many stand sights and alternate stands according to the wind, deer will turn nocturnal on you in a hurry if you over hunt an area.

This is one nice thing about a climber stand!!! You can move all over the place. especially if one night you see them coming out farther away, all you have to do is set up closer and with minimal noise and time too!!!

I'm new out here and I was wondering how many of you guys hunted the WMA's becuase as of yet thats the only place I've found that I can hunt. After trying unsucessfully to gain private land permission each year, usually if the land owner allows hunting, someone already has permission to hunt that land ( you guys grin.gif) or they don't allow hunting. I know it will take time to find places but I have spent my time trying to hunt WMA's during the week, figuring the weekends will be crazy. Just wondering what your thoughts were on the WMA's in general?

Sometimes it's the only choice you have so ya gotta do it.

I've been on and off with WMA and private land on a number of occasions. Land changes hands and times change, it's all part of the deal.

Unless you know somebody, private land for deer hunting is usually pretty well locked up.

sometimes wildlife areas are even better than private lands. You just have to do your homework to find the right location. Only thing...you might be dealing with other hunters in your situation.

      Thanks snowfighter. Coming up Dec 9 weekend.my brother took some fish outta little turtle the weekend of Oct 7 th. Sounds like from your end of the lake. Seen pics, some decent pike.

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

      don't  give them any ideas!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!
    • MJ1657
      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
