      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 .

bolt action 695 slugger anyone have one

Recommended Posts


I own a mossber 695 slugster but my bolt is broken I only used it once on the range the whole bolt is not broken only the ejector pins at the end i contacted mossberg but they would like to have my whole rifle. But i wont be able to get it back before rifle deer season starts. i did write back and asked if i could buy a bolt no questions asked. Questions::
What kind of weapons do you use?
Do any of you drive or stalk deer versus sitting in a fixed position or stand.
I would like tips i dont have a stand and am going to walk around the woods maybe get lucky

Yes I have one and it is the only gun I will use for slug hunting. It is incredibly accurate compared to a slug barrel on a normal shotgun. Use the 385 grain sabot slugs made by Winchester, they are awesome. Too bad to hear you are having problems with yours, hope you get it repaired before season opens.

As far as how to hunt it depends on the terrain that you are hunting. I hunt ravines, so I look for an area where a couple of them come together and then walk around looking for signs of deer. If you find a well traveled trail, look for a spot 25-30 yards off of it with good cover. Keep in mind you want to do this a week or so before the season starts, you don't want to be tromping around looking for a spot on opening morning! Then get out there an hour or so before the sun comes up on opener and and wait for old mossy antlers to wander by.

There are many, many other factors to consider and you may be hunting in other conditions so my advice may not be of any use to you, but thats my $.02...

They will more than likely need your
entire gun to fit the bolt to your gun.
This is the normal procedure when dealing
with bolt-actioned firearms, so they aren't
messing with you.

      It’s been interesting in Central MN so far.  There are plenty of lakes that have very walkable ice and ice that could hold ATV traffic but also several that stayed mostly to partly open for longer than expected.  Several lakes have both rideable ice and open water as of last weekend. There are only a couple lakes that I’ve been tracking that I would commit to an ATV ride on right now, especially with the new snow cover.  We lost the ability to see what “generation” of ice you were on this week.  On the plus side, we’ve had good ice making conditions all week. Short story: There are lakes that are ready to fish but don’t assume they all are.  Phone ahead to a resort or bait shop to find out about particular lakes if you don’t get the info here.  Buy your bait at the shop that gives you your key info. Be extra cautious this weekend until you’ve proven the ice you want to fish.

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck
