      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 .

Close Place to Shoot My Rifle

Recommended Posts

Chuckster

Hi guys, I was just wondering if there was a place close to the area where I could run out and fire off a few shells. I live in Fargo and dont want to run all the way back to my house near Fergus Falls. Hitman, I know you patrol the Hawley neck of the woods, anything of that sort around there? Thanks for any help in advance.

2. Casselton

Your best bet is Horace, it is close and convienient. I just sighted in there last week. Bring your own targets and 5 bucks to put in the box before you enter. To get there take 94 West to the Kindred exit, just aways beyond W Fargo take a left(South)at top of ramp. Drive ~7 miles (you will see some electrical power equipment on left next to the road on the north side of the turn you will take) Take left (East) there (dirt road). Drive about a mile look for sign on left for shooting park, go past house/construction and take left. Good luck and good hunting, I was just out in central MN and they seem to be moving a lot laugh.gif

Thanks for the info guys, I called yesterday but the number said it was disconnected or temporarily unavailable. Can a guy just go out there and shoot anytime? I have heard that it only opens around 3 or 4pm? I might head over there this afternoon.

Yeah man, thats why I gave you those detailed directions, I wasn't able to reach them either. I'm not sure on hours, but just drop in at 3 or 4 and the gate will be open, just gotta drop the money in the box, the couple times I have been there the shop hasen't been open, but as long as the gates open the range is. I'm sure you wont be the only one ND still has a week before opener. I would get there early if possible. Hopefully that answers your questions, don't forget targets! Good shootin.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
