      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 .

i hope this isn't a touchy subject and i mean all of this with a kind heart, so here goes.........

i have an area where i hunt that is very hunter, or handicap hunter friendly. my hunting partners and myself would like to open this spot to those who might have a difficult time reaching most places.

my question is, does anyone know of organizations, or people that i can talk to who can get me pointed in the right direction? this spot won't be available this year but i would like extend invitations for next year. any help would be great.

thanks for the help everyone.......loc9

I bet the DNR could point you to a few groups. I thought I read somewhere they opened two wheelchair accessible blinds in Carlos Avery. Maybe call the Superintendant there.

Wow! Great to hear about people offering to help.

I am a disabled hunter/fisherman myself. I took a .22 magnum bullet in the neck when a guy I was hunting with mistook me for a squirrel. Speaking from experience, it's great to meet and hear about people willing to offer their time/land/services to help others get out and enjoy the outdoors. I have a tough time getting out, but luckily, I have friends and family that are willing to help haul my **s out into the woods and fields so I have a chance at something. I'm very appreciative for all the help and I do my best to repay the kindness in any wa that I can. Most disabled hunters feel likewise.

As for your question, Capable Partners is a big helper of the disabled sportsman in MN. They are well organized and have a lot of volunteers. You could also talk to UFFDA (United Foundation For Disabled Archers). See their website at www.uffdaclub.com

The Rochester Area Disabled Athletics and Recreaction (RADAR) club sponsors hunting and fishing outings also.

If you want to spread the word farther, Buckmasters has a nation-wide network (BADF) for disabled hunting opportunities. The National Wild Turkey Federation also has a big group designated to help disabled sportsmen (and women) called Wheelin' Sportsmen.

Capable Partners is probably the best bet in Minnesota. If you want more info, I'd be happy to send along the contacts that I have run into over the years. You can reach me at kurts@buckmasters.net

Thanks for making this generous offer. The world needs more people like you. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif

loc9,
I got so caught up in getting you some info that I forgot about the forum that I was on. I am a duck hunting nut, but I had to sell my boat as it was getting too difficult and dangerous for me to be using it. I'm really looking for some land where I would have access to a flyway where I wouldn't have to use a boat. If your land is used for duck hunting, keep me in mind as I would be sick if I couldn't get out and ambush some ducks each year.

Thanks again for your generous offer.

i would be more than happy to take you out on a duck and/or goose hunt corn-killer, but the problem is that i am in arizona until the 19th. not to sound like a selfish a$$ but i don't think i can set much up for hunts this year. next year is a definite though. this area is on private land very near the metro area and a person can be driven right down to where we will hunt. we could either hunt ducks and geese on the lake, or in fields. the lakeshore has good solid ground with good willow cover. its not the greatest spot to hunt but we do get some shooting and like i said, its such a hunter friendly place i think others might enjoy it also.

thank you all for the info......loc9

loc9,
Arizona, huh? Bet it's a lot warmer than here. My thermometer read 8 degrees at my house this morning. Brrrrr. No worries. I'm pretty busy right now too. Got out duck hunting before I sold my boat and killed a few geese in the fields over the weekend so I got my fix. Gearing up for deer hunting in two weeks now, then ice fishing starts coming along...

Let's keep in touch. I'm always up for meeting a new hunting/fishing buddy. Shoot me an email and we'll swap stories.

i was only able to hunt 2 weekends this year, one for goose opener and the other in no. dakota. kind of depressing when im used to going out every weekend. but they were both fun and memorable times for me. i should be getting back to MN about the 20th or 21st and planning on hunting the ducks until the season closes. but ill be home for the entire ice fishing season so im happy about that.

i too am up for making new hunting and fishing buddies so i will keep in touch. thanks corn-killer.......loc9

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
