      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 .

Public Land near Forest Lake

Recommended Posts

I have been scouting Public land around Forest Lake and Carlos near Stacy. I was wondering if it is worth hunting or if it gets hit pretty hard? I have seen deer and have seen good sign but is it a zoo? Thanks

DRH- it is just plain ugly during rifle/shotgun season out there.. and you do have to be aware and carefull of small game hunters. But the area is not hunted too overly hard during the bow season and muzzel loader season. Because of the huge pressure during gun season, I would say that your chances at a Pope and Young deer is less, but there are quite a few deer out there for sure.

Good luck!

I have no personal experience with hunting the public land around Forest Lake/Wyoming area, but I've heard from reliable sources that if you are willing to put some work into it and hike back to areas where other people are unwilling to go, then you'll see some deer and possibly some nice ones. I know if I didn't already have places to hunt...I would not hesitate to check out those public lands knowing that I'd probably have to go the "extra mile" to improve my odds...but if that meant the difference between hunting and not hunting, I would go for it. I say check it out...nothing ventured...nothing gained.

Thanks. I have a rifle spot so that is not an issue. I am just looking for spots for Bowhunting. I just moved into the area this spring so I havn't came accross any private land yet although I am always looking. I thought I would try a couple WMA in the area and Carlos for a start. Thanks for your input. I will be putting in some work. I have no issue with hiking in in the morning and hiking back out after dark.

I don't live there anymore, but I grew up in Linwood. I've hunted Carlos a lot and yup, there are deer in there, and nice ones, but you flat out gotta be willing to take a walk to get them.

Between Wyoming and Linwood on Cty rd 22 there is like a mile or longer straight shot. Right about in the middle of that straight shot, pull over, put on your boots and walk. When you're sick of walking, walk more. In other words, go where no one else is willing to go. It's some nasty walking but well worth it. Especially worth it if you're the type that will go out early and are willing to hang out all day.

Good luck to ya.
