      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'm heading to Mcgregor area for deer this year. It will be my first year with a rifle and I'm excited about it. I've shot many deer with bow and shotguns but just the fact it's something different has me pumped. Now if only I can find a big buck.

Who knows what's gonna meander down the trail.

I've always been a meat eater ,but if a big buck strolls by I'll have to whack him.

Other then that a few does would suite me just fine.

I could get back out for some late season bill action.

CK - Still some bills around? Toying with the idea of a road trip from Duluth to Gun Lake for a morning shoot...IF there are a few ducks around.

PS - We've never met but good luck in the woods - I've sure enjoyed reading your reports and comments along the way. Like my dead Uncle Rudy used to say, when he was alive, "Shoot hard boys".

I was on Minnewawa last weekend and had divers scooting through.We shot some redheads and ringers.

I'd think with the water freezing up in Canada the big bills should be moving down.

I've not heard anything from Gun.

Minnewawa is inline with the Rice Lake Refuge.

The Kimberley Bog has had some good action and that lil Newstrom too.

Got all my ducks in a row this afternoon and evening. I was not sure if I was going to deer hunt until this morning! Went out this after noon and checked stands and added one portable. Seen good sings of deer movement, but did not see any deer. Talked to the farmer east of the land and he said he has not noticed any good sized bucks. Go figure! He did take down his corn field today, which forces deer to cover in the woods and swap I hunt. This is a plus! I put a portable stand out in the swap area next to a creek. This will be the first year I have hunted in the swap area. I am hoping this will increase my chances.

Headed back home and started gathering all my hunting gear and changing barrel on my Rem. auto to my slug barrel. Mounted scope. Headed up and got license and B.S.ed with Hardware store guy. Came home and sited gun. Gathering the last of my stuff and loaded truck up. Watching weather right now and seems like it will be in the 50's Sat. and possibly 60's Sun... Getting ready for bed and going to be in stand a half hour before shooting starts.

I love and Nothing like deer opener!

Hopefully we get a buck and fill other tag right away in morning. I could only wish!

Good luck!

Saw more signs then deer...the only buck I saw was being chased by 2 dogs...Got a shot at the buck and missed. Got a shot at the dogs and missed too....but one of the didn't like gun shot noise...hopefully the DNR will find them. 2 cocoa colored lab mixes, they had collars but no tags and one of the neighbors says he has seen them running around for a week or more now.

I never saw a deer.

I did see a hunter driving through the woods with his atv and he had a gun over his shoulder uncased.

I pulled my camera out and told him he was on video.

Hopefully he'll remember that.

He did case up and drove off.Still after hours ,but I had to get rid of him.

It shot my evening hunt.

I didn't see a single deer while hunting this weekend either. I almost hit 3 different deer with the car on Friday night though. First time in at least 5 years that I didn't at least see a bunch of deer on opening weekend. The swamp I usually hunt was wetter than ever, so I'm sure that didn't help. I also heard a bunch of wolves awfully close, also not the best thing if you're trying to fill a tag. Next weekend I'll have to head for higher ground.

Hey guys.

Do any of you hunt or ever hunted the Wealthwood SF? I am going to be up in the area in the next couple weeks and wondering if it is hunted HEAVY with blaze everywhere or if it is not too bad. I would be by myself and maybe sneak in there somewhere for a half day and see how it goes..?? If it is a war zone shocked.gif I might pass. Thanks for any info.

Deer hunting for my family means watching for poachers, and this year is no different. I would like to congradulate the person or persons that shot the deer in the middle of the road friday night or early saturaday morning in the headlights of the pickup, you are quite a sportsman!! and a heck of a hunter. I hope you told your wife or children how you sat in the stand all day and waited for the deer to come in, when really u shot it illegally and most likely sat at the bar the rest of the weekend.

To all other "road" hunters the DNR has been contacted and next time it could be a deer, or it could be a ticket waiting to happen?!!!!

panfishhunter, It's too bad it is this way, I have had similar problems with Poachers, but I now make sure everyone around knows that I have, and will call them in, and that I have Unlimited Poacher Tags to fill again this year!!! wink.gif

When one person takes legal action, it encourages others who were afraid, to do the same... shocked.gif

Of course there's always at least one Buffoon willing to... Make My Day... crazy.gif

For those still interested...

Had good luck hunting just north of McGregor. Saw deer everytime but once going out including bucks. During daytime scouting walks was also seeing deer. Ended up taking a 11ptr that's nothing special for size.

      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.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.
