      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 .

deer processing

Recommended Posts

hoggsback

I have searched old posts about places to process deer and am not finding much for options. Can someone give me some suggestions on where to take my deer in the metro area? I am in the SW metro but I would drive a distance to get good cuts and sausage. Last year I went to Von Hanson's and it was good but I want to try somewhere different this year. I have quartered my deer the last few years and wonder if there are places that will do sausage but don't do the processing? I was thinking about getting my trimmings and taking them somewhere to have sausage made.

The place in Jordan here has quite a reputation (good). Because of that, they get a ton of business so you might have to wait a bit longer. But it's probably worth it.

The name of the place is Pekarna's.

Oh and BTW, you can bring your trimmings only there as I've done that in the past. Just be sure it's pretty clean, they frowned on some of the fatty trimmings I gave them.

Good Luck

I'll second dtro, I don't want to sound like a homer cause I also am from Jordan, but their reputation speaks for itself and I have had great luck there myself. Although one thing I will say is their hotdogs are not as good as they once were in my opinion. I've also heard some good comments about the meat market in nicollet I believe it is called Schmidt's Meat Market(Some one correct me if I'm am wrong). I've had some of their deer sticks and summer sausage and they are both great.

Schmidt's is the place in Nicollet. That is where I am leaning toward but thought there must be a great place closer. I will look into the place in Jordan. I need to get my quartered deer cut up first before I look into sausage.

Thanks for the suggestion!

No, I might have to give it a try I have some trimmings I have to take in. What is all in their Jackaroni sticks?

It sucks now with firearms season, I get done with work and go out hunting when I get back and am too tired to do anything else, Like bring in the meat. Also do you know the hours Perkarna's are open? Thanx in advance.

I'm in Bloomington and I drive to Albertville to have mine processed. Steffens Meat Market is the place. I'm picky and they have done me a quality job for 3 years. If you have hamburger made - tell them how much beef or pork you want added. Otherwise you might not get exactly what you are looking for. Excellent hot sticks. I highly recommend the jalepeno cheese hot sticks. Best sausage I've found around too. They are known for their breakfast sausages though. I think they are called country sausages. Pretty good! I went around and tryed several places and this is the best I found. They beat out: Von Hanson's (metro), Lorenz Meat (Cannon Falls), Macenthuns (St. Boni), Anoka Meat Market and one other place that I can't remember the name of at this particular time.

Lang's meat market (formerly Pinske's meat market) here in Gaylord is pretty good. I've had all kinds of stuff made there and it's been good. I'm not sure if he still does it or not, but Kent Hrbek always used to bring his deer to the meat market in town. smirk.gif

I've heard some excellent reports about Schmidt's in Nicollet too.

Schmidts in Nicollet is good, but I have tried everyone around the Mankato area and George's in Nicollet is the best. I can tell you not to go to Brother's in the metro area. The last time they did our meat it came back raw.
