      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 .

Timber Wolf Hunting Onterio

Recommended Posts

Dock Boy

Hey Guys, I just purchased a Onterio small games license and a Wolf Seal. Has anyone here hunted wolves before. I have a friend that lives on Lac La Croix and that is where I plan on hunting. We may try baiting and posting and then cruising the lakes via snowmobile. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I would try using those calls, but I don't have any of them. Does anyone on the forum have some to borrow or rent. I live near International Falls. Thanks for the help

calls are fairly cheap for hand calls and thats what id try to carry around up there. 10 20 bucks at cabelas. i did find some at a gas station up that way one time for 3 bucks so id try to get your own and give it some practice.

I don't know if this is legal or not in Canada. I have heard of people dragging a road killed deer out to the middle of a lake, on the ice of course, and sitting back and watching it for a couple of days. Mister Wolf will show up for a free meal. cool.gifcool.gif

To bait wolves is legal in Ontario and it's what I do to catch mine in snares but have hunted them over bait too with success but often they prefer to come only into the open under the cover of darkness and it's illegal to shoot here then .

Usually we run them with radio collared hounds and trying to get ahead of the dogs with snowmachines but like anything being run by hounds, wolves have a tendancy to run thick cover and it's getting a decent shot that is the hard part .I've tried calling and I am sure it will work but can't claim any success because I don't have the time in doing it much .

I have always found timbers to be a far travelling critter that moves around in a large territory . Even at a bait pile they only hang around for so long before leaving and your best bait by far is beaver .

The squawking of ravens at a baitpile really draws the foxes and wolves in but it's keeping enough bait at the pile with ravens around that can become a difficulty too . I have a system that works to trap wolves consistently around baitpiles but getting a clean shot is a whole other story .

Hey Trapper, Thanks for the info, We have been getting beavers from a local trapper near La Croix. My partner usually drills an ice hole and lets the beaver freeze half way in the water so something can't just grab and run with it. Trapper do you think the best bet would be baiting or cruising with the sleds looking for them. What is you system that works over bait. Here is my email address if you would rather email me. caseywave11@hotmail.com. This would be greatly appreciated.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!  
    • DLD24
      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.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      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.
