      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 .

2006 spring turkey hunt

Recommended Posts

mngoosehunter

I started applying for spring turkey hunting last year. I was going to apply for the 2006 spring turkey hunt this weekend amd was wonerdering if anyone knew a good date to apply for. I was thinking the first weekend because I could hunt 3 days, but i wanted someones opinion on maybe when turkeys would be moving more or better chance of getting one. Any information would be great. Thanks

It kinda depends on where you hunt. I think the southern part of the state seems to warm faster, therefore the earlier seasons are best, but in the northern part of the turkey zones they generally get more snow and it takes longer to warm up and for the turkey to get started with the spring rituals. Of course it's all going to depend on mother nature and when she decides it's time for spring. Can't really go wrong with season "C" or "D" state wide unless it's a real early spring. Good luck and be sure to apply by Dec. 2nd.

Like Nova stated, it depends where you hunt....in more ways than one! The number of applications per permit area, per time period, greatly affects whether or not you'll be hunting this spring.

Because I like to get after them every spring, I will sacrifice my selection for peak breeding/gobbling periods in favor of getting drawn to hunt. Even if I'm hunting them the last two seasons, with enough work, you can find active birds (providing mother nature doesn't COMPLETELY shut you down).

Keep your preference number, "application-pressure", AND definitely location of the state as Nova said, in mind when selecting a season. If it doesn't work out, there's always the surplus tags.

Good luck!!!

Also don't forget about the archery tags for the last 2 seasons. That was my saving grace last year. And what a way to bag a gobbler.

Mngoose:

Thought I'd offer a fair word of warning; if you apply for season A, you probably won't get picked this year if you've never applied before. For most zones in MN, it takes 2-3 years to get picked for the "A" season. In rare instances, you can get it with no preference points. I have, on one occasion.

If you're really itchin' to get out, thought I'd let you know.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
