      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 .

Metro Deer Hunters

Recommended Posts

What do you guys think? I am starting to think long days on the stand are pointless. Most of the deer in my area seem to only move evening, morning and night. I have seen a few bucks moving during mid day during the rut but only the spikes. I have a lot of deer using my woods and activity is low except for prime times.

What are your thoughts??

My thoughts are the same haven't seen anything on camera from 8am-4pm. I've been mainly hunting the evening because of work been seeing deer but nothing close enough for the kill shot.

I agree...and a little snow would be great sometime soon to learn a little more about their current patterns. Here's hoping.

Same here... Even on my very lightly used QDM property. The area around me gets pounded by the shotgunners and the deer respond by going mostly nocturnal. Almost zero movement during daylight hours.

My only advice is to key in on food sources and travel routes to/from bedding areas. A bit of snow would sure come in handy just to see if the trails are even being used. And remember, you can't harvest a deer from the couch!! wink.gif

Last saturday after hockey with the kids I drove out to check the camera. 11:00AM Saw a buck standing right in the driveway which is used as a deer trail. Had my 6 year old and she was like dad look at that guy! I said "yeah and my bow is in the back of the truck". Her next words were the highlight of the week. "Go get it and put an arrow in him!" Precious little girl!

The camera has nothing but nocturnal deer except one nice doe. I am still hoping to get out on the weekends since after work it is getting dark too soon.

Late season bow hunting can be tough and frustrating.

Probably why I took up coaching hockey!

Slow J., gotta love it when kids respond to hunting like that. My Mom asked the young son of a friend if the Easter Bunny was coming to his house. He said "Yeah, we're gonna kill him and eat him huh dad?"

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff
