      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 .

Slenz, you are best to look north than anywhere else for good prices. And land without lakeshore is MUCH cheaper. We have 5 acres with a cabin and a few hundred feet of lakeshore and it is worth more than many 80acre + prime hunting plots. My brother and I do a lot of searching for good deals, so if you give me a price range I could suggest a few places that we have passed on for one reason or another. dreaj04@aol.com

slenz, You make want to look into leasing from a major lumber company. It's a yearly lease with various sizes available, mostly from about Mille Lacs north. It's relativeley cheap with many sizes available. You get to re-lease from year to year as long as you follow the rules which seem pretty simple. I don't know if I can mention the name here. Let me know if you are interested and I'll figure out a way to let you know.

Does anyone know what the going rate is for hunting land? I'm thinking primarily woods and swamp, without lakeshore. How much does the price vary around the state? I'm most interested in the Alexandria/Sauk Center area and north 40 or 50 miles.

I have 40 acres just outside of talmoon and was told by a local talmoon boy last week that if you have high enough ground to build on they are commanding from $50,000 to $70,000 per 40. seems awful high to me.

Prices are "all over the board". I purchased 4 acres of swampland that I needed for road access, and paid a premium of $20,000. I'm about 8 miles west of st cloud and there's an 80 acre piece for sale, it's currently about 60 acres in crop, and 20 acres in swamp/grass and small pond. It's just been listed by a realtor for $31,000 per acre!!!! Yikes! You have to get away from the metro area to drop the price. A friend of mine purchased 200 acres just south of Avon which is all timber, and swamp and paid $5,000 per acre.

If there are any of you out there who would like to form a hunting club and combine resources to purchase some land in Stearns county (preferrably the eastern 1/2) I'd be interrested. Ideally I'd like a minimum of 80 acres......mostly wooded.

Yea, land can be really expensive. Last year a guy bought a 3 acre plot next to our cabin for 40 grand, and its all hill and swampy shoreline. But if you look at the right areas you can still get some "good" deals. Look way north for cheaper wooded land, anything west or south is gonna get you, or anything near the cities.

5000 GRAND PER ACRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOLY CR*P!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Man, I thought people were nuts paying $1000 to $1500 per acre up in Ottertail county.
Oh my. I will never be able to buy my own chunk. frown.gif
My dad does own the farm he grew up on, but thats shared with his brother. I was hoping some day to be able to own my own chunk.
I tried approaching the adjacent landowner to my dad about buying a 40 this summer, but no go. Crap, if they ever do sell, it will be 10 years from now at $5000 acre. UGH!

Yes land is expensive. Land prices around the Alex- Fergus Falls runs $1,000-$2,000 per acre. Sebeka over to Long Prairie land is a little cheaper $800-1200 per acre for woods/open ground with CRP income. I could keep an eye open for anyone interested or do a search at my site from the home page of FM under Lakes Area Property.

Was lookin at land around the state, and elsewhere, noticed out west in states like montana you can get land if purchased in big acreages for under 100 an acre. Saw one 5,600 acre for under 400,000. Not exactly woods though wink.gif

    • leech~~
      Can't make this one but looking forward to meeting up on the next. I may even try moving around to catch some like eyeguy, instead of enjoying a nice relaxing sit in my chair and talking!! I think I still have 17 cans of beer in my basement of the 18 can case I brought last year no one drank, I can bring again!!

      Anyone been around the western edge or north side of Pine with sled or atv?

      My dad fell thru Camp Lake just north of Shakopee last weekend.  Went from 6" to less then 1.5" in an area that typically never has issues.  Lots of abnormal freezing this year, there were still open pockets Sunday afternoon.   Haven't seen it freeze like this in years (at least on our lake.)  Don't go alone on lakes you're not familiar with.  Bring a spud.

      Any info on Mayhew Lake just NE of St. Cloud? Just moved to the area and was looking to get out a small lake.

      Now is the time to talk to kids about the dangers of thin ice. As temperatures continue to dip below freezing, ice is forming on many lakes, ponds and rivers. But conditions vary across the state.  Minnesota Department of Natural Resources conservation officer Hannah Mishler has already responded to multiple ice rescue calls. “Ice, especially snow covered ice, is extremely deceptive. You can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” Mishler said. With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward the newly formed ice for entertainment. “Teach your children that ice is never 100 percent safe,” cautions Mishler. “If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” While adults and children are recreating outdoors, they should always take precautions around any body of water during the cold water season. Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator, advises in addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). When a child is near the ice, an adult should be near the child. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
