      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 .

Gotta skip it this year. We've got seven deer already and I can't stand to look at them anymore. Good luck.

I folded and went out with some buddies and we saw some movement today. The three of us saw seven altogether and I was the only one with a shot. Unfortunetely they were standing in the brush and I was using my bow since I didn't get a muzzleloader tag. They both got busted by the ones they saw. On the other hand we were hunting fresh property that didn't get pounded over rifle season. My brother put 100 lbs of corn out by his stand over a week ago and hasn't got anything on the trail cam. He was getting at least 10 deer a day before rifle season so I'm guessing they got pushed out. BTW he's not hunting that stand anymore.

It was quite slow for my group of three. Only seen one deer for two days of hunting and thats for all three of us. A light dusting of snow covered the ground and that made finding fresh sign a little more difficult. Im not sure what to expect upcoming with the colder temps- hopefully that will get them moving a little more.

I would have preferred to just let my short reply to this post end but... Read this line again "My brother put 100 lbs of corn out by his stand over a week ago" And he did this by his stand because??? I would even speculate that the only reason that he quit hunting his bait pile is because he hasn't seen any deer on his trail cam. Even if he is not hunting there "anymore" feeding deer is just as illegal as baiting.

He did it because he had a big buck coming by before rifle season. He wanted to see if it survived the season. He is now hunting 10 miles from there and will not be hunting anywhere near that stand until next year. Feeding deer is not illegal, I don't know where you would get that idea. If it was the regs wouldn't say that you had to remove food at least ten days before hunting. Even if he wanted to put food out for no reason at all, why should it matter. I'd be more worried about people that are poaching and baiting than a sixteen year old kid just trying to get some deer pics.

If he saw a big buck why would he hunt ten miles away??

Why not just stay where he knows a big one is?? Also, I don't mind people feeding the deer in the winter to help them make it, but there are still people hunting in that area and it really makes it difficult when someone is baiting. Baiting wrecks the sport for many. I think sportsman should be smart enough to wait until after all deer hunting is over and be considerate to the people who are still hunting. Just my 2 cents

      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.
