      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 .

You should get yourself a PRIM map (public recreation information map) from the DNR for the Aitkin area. You can order them over the phone from the St. Paul office. Or buy a plat map of your area. You should be able to find lots of public land. My Duluth PRIM map ends just west of Cromwell and the next block west of there is listed as the Aitkin map.

I live close to moose willow better for ducks than deer but there is alot of public land around this area you can almost go anywhere and find public land. I don't know if you've been to moose willow but it is closer to Hill City than Aitkin. It's about five miles south of Hill City and about thirty miles north of Aitkin. Get a map as there is federal, state, and Blandin land everywhere.

I'm not familiar with that area but there is the Savanna state forest north and south of 210 by Tamarack. It's also all around by Big Sandy lake looks like plenty of room for many hunters. There is also some tax forfeit and state land around that area. If you need more specific info I'll try to figure more out as I have a friend familiar with the area.

thanks so much i really appreciate what you are doing. i am 90% sure that i will hunt in the savanna state forest around moose willow. so if you ask your friend i want to know if there are deer hunters in the area and even if there is deer around this state forest. i downloaded google earth and it shows aerial photos of the land, and i have also been looking at the dnr website for specific details. thanks again eric anderson

The Savanna state forest is huge. I'm not sure where the best spot is but I'm pretty sure if you head north towards the Jacobson area there are less hunters. I have many friends that hunt on land around that area and they're are plenty of deer and they have taken some nice bucks. Just like anywhere else if you get in the woods a little bit further you probably have a better chance due to less pressure. If you dont have much time to scout I would look for areas with water that will naturally funnel deer. It also always seems that there is plenty of thick stuff around the water where they have a good place to hide. Clear cuts work good but everybody seems to be there. I will check some topos and look for some areas to look at for you.

Eric, When I get time I will E-mail you (going hunting soon) and get your address and I'll send you that whole area and mark some spots from my plat book that may be good.

      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 !!

      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.
