      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 .

2007 Gun Deer Pics

Sorry if this topic is somewhere else. Don't really have time to look now.

Long story short, I had the crosshairs on this buck 4 different times with the safety off. Never was 100% sure of the shot though. He ended up running by my father and he got him! Nearly had him last week with the bow too! 215 lbs field dressed.

i shot a buck this morning right at daylight, he came in chasing a hot doe, i hit him twice before he disapered into some thick brush, 15 min later as i climed down my stand and started walking his way another much larger buck came in grunting and snorting, he was fired up and looking for a fight, at first i thought it was the buck i shot and he had doubled back on me, i poped a quick shot at him but luckly missed, as he ran out the other side of the valley i heard some rustling in the bushes and sure enough there was my buck laying in the thickest nastyst cocklebur/rasberry bush in the woods, he's a leagle 9pt, with 7 main points and 2 small sticker points near the base of one antler, cooked up the tenderloins for supper this afternoon, and man its nice to taste fresh vinison again, this is the 2nd largest buck of my life behind an 11pt i shot a few years back

Hey Tippman, nice gun set up. It is close to what I use.

Where about in the state did you shoot the deer?

Actually that's my dad's gun, a 870 wingmaster with redfield I believe. He shot the deer as I said, the pics of him just didn't turn out well with the color for some reason. He was shot near St. Cloud. I have the bar raised pretty high for me now. smile.gif

Hey Tippman,

I'm kind of disappointed in that deer, it's not white!? j/k Oh, because your father harvested it it's a normal deer thats why. Hey Congrats and beautiful buck. Just giving you a hard time. I was lucky enough to take a yearling doe.

whats the circumferance at the base did you by chance shoot this buck near the minnesota river? A couple of people in my party saw a buck on saturday that they didnt have a clear shot at but they could see that it was a brute and sunday evening when registering my nephews doe the guy at the registration station says the neighbors across the river got a brute that field dressed weighed 215. Either way that is a dandy buck congrats.

Here is the 10 pointer I shot on Sunday after a 30 minute cat and mouse game. This is the most fun I have ever had shooting a deer. A half hour of pure excitement. He weighed 200# on a Cabelas scale after field dressing and scored 139 points. He would stick his nose in the shooting lane and stop. Finally he crossed one.

Great looking deer guys. It's always nice to take a personal best.

I passed on a mid sized 8 tonight still looking for the big boy near Mcgregor. It's not as easy checking this site from the cell phone as the home computer though.

Nope, he is Houston County born and raised.

The coolest part is that he showed up on trail camera for the first time the weekend before the season.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      I have not seen a bird during season yet but I will get one or two I hope

      Looks like you got one woodcock and a snipe but I could be wrong but great job shooting.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
