      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 .

Hey Tim!

Definetly would love the company! I don't know when exactly but I will drop you an e-mail or post something when I plan on going. And you drop me a line if you think you might go too.

I'd like to get Daisy out at least a few times this winter and try to sharpen her and I up. I don't remember the guys name but I'll figure it out from the ad. How many game farms can be around Glendorado? I'll keep you posted. Thanks!

Hey Spinach!

Great! Sounds like a plan. Are you guys available at all during the week? Or are you strictly weekends? This next weekend I'm out of town; but the following weeks are fairly wide open. Looking forward to it! I'll e-mail you both when I figure out what I can do.

Hey Guys - sounds like it is time for a Glendorado Gang reunion. I was at the farm Friday afternoon. The farm is very huntable this time of the year. They have cut some new walking paths in the wooded area behind and north of the barn and all the boggy areas are frozen over and walkable. Only standing corn is to the southwest.

The birds are not has big as they were earlier in the season but the ones I saw Friday were decent in size and very good flyers. I can hunt during weekdays from 10:30 am until 2:00 pm.

When you call the office you will be talking with Mike. He takes appointments and manages the operation during the weekdays. When you call the cell phone number you will be talking to Rick, the owner. Let me know when you want to get together and I will try and make it...would be nice to get together and see how all the dogs have progressed since last fall!

Hey WW!

This Friday may work for me for a 10:30 to 2:00 hunt. I will check it out and re-post tomorrow. Would be great if you, Tim, Spinach, as well as anyone else interested could swing something on short notice.

Friday high 26 degrees, wind from southeast 8 mph and a chance for snow showers. Sounds like perfect pheasant hunting weather to me! Count me in for three birds. I drop the kids off at school at 9:00 am and can be at the farm by 10:15 am. I need to leave the farm no later than 2:00 pm to make it back to Woodbury in time to pick up the little rascals...who else is in? I will call Mike Wednesday with hunter and bird count. Glendorado was running a special earlier in the season - 10 birds for $100. Not sure if that is still valid or not...regular price is $12 per bird. Remember no scratch hunting allowed!

What the heck, I'm in for three as well. If its OK with you guys, I might just bring the video camera and not carry a gun. So if you know someone that would like to shoot, please feel free to bring them along. With these puppies coming I want to get some video of the dog working, to show potential puppy buyers what they are in for. What time do you guys want to meet up there?

Setterguy - bringing a camera sounds like a good idea. Thought Kenai was going to have a litter? How far along is she, when are the pups due? Hopefully a couple more of the Glendorado Gang will read this post and have nothing better to do that day and will join in on some fun. I plan on being at the farm around 10:15/10:30 am. Hey Tim, Spinach and BDR lets hear from you guys!

Well the breeding went well, got two breedings in. It didn't look good for the first couple days. She got pretty aggressive with him and he was reluctant, but we finally got it done. I am pretty sure she is pregnant, she has been getting a little bigger and acting like a total goof ball. The pups should be on the ground around the 7-10th of February, so she is still fine to hunt. Some say its actually a good thing to hunt a pregnangt female. Something similiar to reading to your unborn child I guess! See you guys there at around 10:30.

I didn't even bother asking BDR. I am almost positive he will be at or on his way to Winnie. There is probably some others with that conflict too...... Of course, you could get in a short hunt on the way up...... Hmmmmmm? wink.gif

PS I'll be there around 10:15.

Setterguy & MM - just got off the phone with Rick a few minutes ago and he said the farm was filling up fast for Friday. I ask him to save a field for us and that we would be there about 10:00-10:30 am. He had to raise his bird prices to $13 from $12 each. He explained that the law of supply and demand rules this time of year regarding game bird pricing. We still have room for a couple of more if anyone else is interested.

Hey Guys!

My hunt tomorrow is hanging precariously by a thread. The little guy appears to have croup. I'm bringing him in this morning and getting it checked out. I will let you guys know later today if I got to cancel. frown.gif

Setterguy - bringing your gun is a good idea considering the way I've been shooting lately. I am still trying to round-up another shooter or two for tomorrow I will post an update later this evening.

MM - we will dedicate the first bird to Drew, the second to Daisy and the third to you. Duty calls and family comes first and foremost. Maybe I'll bring the digital camera along and will post some pics over the weekend! I plan on at least one outing a month - weather permitting...hopefully we all can get together in Feburary.

      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.   
    • cookie129
      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.

      Can anyone recommend a place nearby the Metro Area where a person can take their air rifle to sight in the scope since you cannot shoot them in city limits.  Plus, probably not smart to just pull up to a random field to sight in, either.  Thanks!!
    • bbfenatic
      Went out early Sunday on smaller lake before the Vikes game...5" of good ice and it was growling so making more before it warmed up. Caught a bunch...pic of the dozen crappies we kept...but it was fast and furious from 7-9am
    • ozzie
      Happy thanksgiving Cookie to you and your family!!!  Glad to see you made it through the summer and are getting ready for the long winter on such a Grand Lake!
