      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 .

Good Luck Tomorrow Morning!

For all of you who are going on the first hunt of the year tomorrow morning, good luck! Sounds like it's going to be a nice cool morning, just what we've all been hoping for.

I'll be in a tree in the metro area hoping for a chance to fill a bonus tag.

Anticipating it being "doe day" at the DeZurik camp(hopefully).

Good luck to all, hope you whack the deer of your dreams. I will be staying home until the evening temps cool down.

I have some shooters on camera and they have been there for the past 4 weeks, I am sure they will be there in another week or two as it is private property and the landowner lets noone else in and there are no others woods withing a 1/2 mile or so.

Good luck to those going out. I may make it out once this weekend or next. Usually I don't hit it hard until mid-late October.

Good luck to everyone who ventures in the woods tomorrow. This will be my 21st archery opener and I still have yet to fire a arrow on a morning hunt. Yes I have drawn the bow but still I have never shot at a deer in the morning. Hopefully I can get hat monkey off my back tomorrow.

Might sit for an hour or two tomorrow afternoon.

Which is better this time of year for movement, morning or evening.

Good luck.

Hunted this morning. Kicked up some deer walking in, and kicked out some deer walking out. Nothing seen but squirrels and wood ducks when I was actually in the stand. Beautiful morning, i'll be heading back out monday.

"Which is better this time of year for movement, morning or evening."

It depends. : O : ) I think those that tell you not to hunt mornings early season are typically thinking about a field situation where the deer may be eating and spot you if you're walking out in the open. If you're hunting the woods or can access the field stand from the woods, I would go for it. So long as it isn't a well used bedding area. A

Anywhoo, made it out this morning for a short sit because schedule allowed. Come a month from now, I'll start sitting more evenings because schedule will allow and I like sleeping a little later!

Good luck everyone.

Congrats you two!

Nothing for me this morning and the wife was able to pull back on a nice doe this afternoon, but the brush was just a little too much to risk it.

Proud of her decision making.

Great to be back in the stands again.

Saw 3 bucks and 2 does today. All bucks 1-2 year olds and in full velvet. One doe had some luck on her side and never offered a shot, another doe got a free pass because I like to shoot them much closer to the road. Fun/wet opening day! grin

Had a basket rack 6 or 8 go by at first light, then gut shot a doe an hour later. Gave it 6 hours with no luck. Had several looking.

Months of practice down the drain. Gotta aim for the shoulder!

Saw nothing Saturday morning, rained out Sat night. Went to church Sunday morning, sat last night & saw 6, could have shot 3. One decent doe under 10 yards. The area I was in last night is H/C, so only shooting big horns there. Hope to whack a doe in my money spot Friday night if the strong forecasted NW wind holds for then. Pretty early to know yet.

Congrats to those who wrapped a tag on one!

My buddy and I spent the weekend down south. 22 deer total seen between us, about half were bucks but no big antlered dudes confirmed. I had a 12 yard chip shot at a young 8 but let him go even though I really wanted to fill a tag this weekend.

I drew twice on does both opening morning and this morning but my shooting lane just wasn't big enough to include the extra 5 yards off the trail they were walking. frown

My buddy never made full draw but had a lot of fun. His near full draw on a nice 8 was interrupted by the forkie. smirk

Spent some quality time with the widow landowner and family and did some tree trimming and pressure washing the house. Helping them get needed things done left us feeling as good as getting a tag filled for the opener. smile

      extended forecasts look good up north. We won't have fish-able ice in the metro until at least the 2nd weed in December assuming no dramatic temp changes. The big Expo is Dec1-3 but temps look promising ~1.5hrs north. I wonder if the ability to go fishing might impact the amount of traffic at the show!

      There's preliminary testing then if flagged it gets shipped to a lab I believe in CO to verify the results.

      10 day forecast doesn't show anything with low temps below 15 degrees.  It might make ice but it wont be making it necessarily fast.

      Thanksgiving would be nice...but first week of December still works!   Rogers on Red is already allowing wheelers and sleds...no side by sides yet.

      A 30-foot-tall white spruce, selected as the state’s official Christmas tree, was cut down today in the General C.C. Andrews State Forest, near Willow River.  The tree will be set up at the governor’s residence, 1006 Summit Ave., St. Paul, around 9 a.m., Monday, Nov. 20. The tree will be lit Monday, Nov. 27. DNR staff and the Conservation Corps of Minnesota cut the tree on the Friday before Thanksgiving each year from one of 59 state forests. However, the search for just the right tree begins months before. DNR foresters keep an eye out for a tall tree that’s nicely shaped and well filled out. It also needs to be in a location where it will not be damaged when dropped and then easily pulled out and loaded onto a trailer. Minnesota’s state forests provide clean air and water, recreational opportunities, wildlife habitat, timber and special forest products. This year, small businesses are making 150,000 wreaths with balsam boughs harvested from state forest lands. The estimated annual sales for Minnesota companies producing holiday wreaths exceed $23 million and Minnesota’s public lands support a large share of this economic activity. Each holiday season, half a million Christmas trees are harvested from private tree farms in Minnesota, contributing about $30 million to the state’s economy. For each tree harvested, one to three trees are planted. Real Christmas trees store carbon during their lifespan. They can be chipped for mulch when the season is over, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
      More information and details on viewing the tree is on the state Christmas tree page. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      if it ever comes down to those 2 choices for you, do the eye thing. Cant fish with you if yer dead.

      Looks like Big Bay is still open, so I don't think I'll be ice fishing Thanksgiving Day weekend.  I'm guessing the Big Bay will freeze this Sunday or Tuesday.  Lake should be walkable by December 2 when I plan to go up.
    • leech~~
      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists! 
    • gimruis
      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.
