      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 .

Realtree Roadtrips....best hunting show episode to date!

Recommended Posts

DitchPickle13

The episode consists of two parts: "Newell Ranch Part 1" and "Newell Ranch Part 2."

Have you guys seen this!? Absolutely great...it catches the true essence of a hunt, not just the moments when a buck walks by.

Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert(country music artists) are both featured on the show, as well as Ted Nugent...they are hilarious and very entertaining on the show. Check out the Outdoor Channel site to find out show times for the re-airs.

Michael Waddell, host, makes a great speech/rant about people like Blake, Miranda, and Ted standing up for hunters rights and not hiding their passion because they're in show-biz. Check it out if you haven't seen it!!

They'll make a show in Northern MN as soon as someone put's up a big fence, buys some stock animals, put's out a pile of corn then sits in a fishhouse on stilt's to peg a fed deer for the camera. Hunting has really changed........and not for the better.

Sorry Buddy! I'll keep my thoughts to myself from now on. I just advocate fair chase.

Then you should enjoy the Realtree videos. You're statements regarding these shows not being fair chase are inaccurate.

They've been 100% fair chase for the past 5-6 years. No high fence hunts for quite some time. Now on the other hand they have access to some of the best hunting areas in the world as well as great outfitters. Having access to those situations may make many of us jealous. But lets not make statements like this without the facts.

But don't take my word for it. Do some research. I've known a few of the realtree pro staff for years and they are top notch folks.

I have a different standard than most . Sorry my opinion seems to upset. I don't bait. I don't use scent. I don't use artificial stands. I don't use anything but hunting skills. I rely on stalking skill and concealment. Can you (or your buddies with the cameras) meet that standard? Hunting is just that. Hunting, not trying to get an "edge" and make it easier to shoot a trophy animal like so many on TV. I shot an 11 point 6 YO buck in 2007 that went 303 lbs field dressed. Scored 142. No nothin' but slow walking and wind management. Good Luck to you and your "hunters". 3rd big buck in 30 years. It's not a yearly thing if you don't "cheat". Anybody can lure deer. Try doing it fair, one on one. You'll get a quick lesson.

I would like to see a picture of that 300 pounder. I shot a buck that dressed right at 200 and that was the biggest deer I have shot in 30 years.

If it's just hunting skills you use, than it's time to put away the high powered rifle with the high powered scope and the compound bow with carbon arrows and get out the long bow with the hand carved arrows and stone broadheads......See my post sounds as stupid as yours....thanks for bringing me down.

Fair chase and skill definitely have different meanings to everyone grin.gif

However, in my opinion, any time you can kill a mature deer you have done a number of things right. Still hunting and taking a deer that way is very satisfying; I have taken a few younger deer that way myself. It definitely takes a lot of time and patience.

However, finding the home of a mature deer, setting up a stand in the right location, and being there at the right time is also a very challenging task that takes a lot of time and effort. Either way, if you are lucky/skillful enough to outwit a mature deer, I feel thats a major accomplishment.

p.s. If we are really talking about fair chase, we should be buck naked chasing the deer down with rocks, sticks and whatever else we can devise grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Sorry for sounding stupid. I apologize to you for offending you. I have nothing intelligent to contribute to this site and have removed myself. You're right. Good Luck hunting for whatever you are after.

      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
    • Naturboy
      I checked ice earlier and there was 2 different ice sheets one was 4” ant that time and the other was 1 1/2”. The 1 1/2” ice was most of the lake. Be very careful on there.

      Most coho being on Minnesota side are 12" - 17".   Occasional bigger fish.  Very few 3# pound fish.

      SM, Nice meeting you today! I am sure we will see each other again! We ended up catching 6 walleyes and 6 tulibees. Kept 3 walleyes from 14" to 19-3/4". We quit at 1:00pm also.
