      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 shot this buck on October 5th and want to get it mounted. I have had some suggestions from friends already. I am looking for a reputable taxidermist in the area, SE MN, who is not over priced and does a quality job. I am looking for your opinions on where and maybe some possible pics of your mounts. Thanks.

Not sure about the mount, but what a nice picture. Enlarged and framed, it would be worth 10,000 words. Nice buck

I'd take it too Mark Righotti (spelling?) in Viola. He's nationally renowned. I have one done 3 years ago and it looks incredible. My buck that year was 425, not sure how much its gone up. If you take it there you'll see some "big name" hunters bucks in there. Its pretty cool. By the way, what a pig!

What a brute! I have seen some of Larry's work with big game although I haven't got anything worth mounting...EVER, but from what I have seen of his work, I would go with him. Actually I think that his son does most of the big game stuff and Larry does most of the fish and turkeys???? I have several fish from him, excellent.

It may be a little drive, but I have been bringing mine to Lee's Taxidermy in Prescott. Not sure about everyone elses experiences, but ours have been great. He gets pretty busy, but it has usually taken 3-4 months to get the mounts back and they are always superb.

We used to go to Corcoran's in Hampton, but had a mix up in the capes, so havn't brought a deer back to them. However, any waterfowl to be mounted would be going to them hands down.

Mark Rigotti is where we took Alex's buck this year. He is a very detail minded artist. Viola Taxidermy, quality and close to Roch! laugh.gif

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
