      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 .

Camoflauge ground stands for deer?

Recommended Posts

I have noticed more and more people use Camo tree/ground blinds during the rifle season. Is this legal? Seems to me it shouldn't be. I had a guy 50 yards from me in one on the ground, I didnt notice him for three hours, till I heard some noise. Seems odd to me to wear orange if your in a camo hut, but maybe it is legal??

It's legal, but I agree it doesnt make sense becasue of the blaze orange requirements... I think it would be hard to outlaw though, becasue I'm sure hay bail blinds, and blinds that are made of natural stuff like evergreen would be considered camo also.

I never gave it much thought, but I suppose it would be a good idea to hang an orange hat above it in a branch or something. I feel much safer 16' up in a tree.

Ameristep sells a blaze orange "cap" that fits any of their blinds.

I see no difference between ground blinds and the guys that have permanent stands with walls on them, you can't see the orange in either case. I say it's a risk you take on yourself if you want to hide behind the camo. It does allow the freedom of being able to move a little bit without the deer seeing you which is nice.

say_der,

Do you know the URL for Ameristep? I have always wanted a blind but because of all the trigger happy's out there, I did not want to sit in a camo blind on the ground. I tought about putting orange tapes/strips all over the area but then this might only confuse the trigger happy's.

I don't want to post an unauthorized link - it's the obvious URL - just add the .com

They don't sell direct from their site. They have links to all of their dealers.

I got a good deal on the Tangle Camo Outhouse about a month ago at the new super store in Lakeville. I'm going to order a blaze cap for it before muzzleloader season opens.

      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

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.

      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
