      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 .

Beaver Creek Valley State Park?

Recommended Posts

PeteS

I got accepted into Beaver Creek Valley State Park in Southern MN. I've never hunted this park before nor have I ever deer hunted in Southern MN. I was wondering if anyone has hunted this park or has any pointers on hunting the Southern MN bluffs and slopes landscape. This type of deer hunting is new to me.

Thanks,

Pete

Yeah. I can help here.

BCVSP is beautiful. Really beautiful. Appreciate that part of this hunt. It doesn't make a ton of sense to hunt a long and fairly wide piece of state park land (where hunting is not normally allowed) to thin out the deer herds down there. If the local farmers gave folks access to their land. It would go a lot further towards controlling an almost out of control population.

That said, try to work the outer edges of the park that share borders with agriculture. (Google maps with photo's will really help here) Be prepared for an outrageous drag-out. The only flat land might be the camp-sites.

Post your e-mail address, and I can get you some real inside information....

Dont know if you have a buck tag or a doe tag but if you have a buck tag wait for a hog.If you even shoot 1 less then 150 class thats stupid. I have seen lots over 170 class bucks in that area.Just wait it out you'll have good luck.hunting the edges the 1st day will be good but after that dig deeper and get there early way before anyone else does

Good luck

TJM, I sent you an e-mail.

Pete, E-mail me, I have hunted the area for 20 years and hunted the park at least 8 times.

Between me and my buddy we have taken some nice deer out of there.

This is just great! I love this site... I can't believe the response I'm getting. I love deer hunting, but the last 3 years I didn't get a deer. My last deer was when I got accepted into Lake Elmo State Park. I can't wait for this year's hunt. I'm definitely going to email tjm, Mike and here's my email address for dog and anyone else with any advice. tjm and Mike please let me know if you don't receive an email from me.

Thanks,

Pete

Alot of the land on the way to My uncle's near there appears to be land purchased just to hunt. Those are the places You can't get permission for. Everybody else in the area probably won't let anyone else hunt because the area is pretty crowed with hunters. I'm having a hard time convincing people not to just pull in and go wherever they want when my group is in there. It's not my land, so I can't kick people out. My uncle just wants the deer numbers reduced and would have a hard time telling people no. Guys just need to realize that a crowded woods isn't a safe woods. I guess it's difficult to let a bunch of people in to hunt when You can't find or keep a place to hunt for yourself.

      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

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
