      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 .

My son and I hunted the Bunyan sat.-mon. We saw 3 does 2 fawns and 1 fork buck on Sat. nothing after that. We could have taken any one of them but we are holding out for a bigger buck. We are going back up on thursday. We saw very few scrapes and a few small rubs. We will be hunting a little farther back in this next time. I did see two sets of LARGE paw prints in the snow on friday. frown.gif There was plenty of shooting in the area but we saw mostly fawns and does and only one small buck on vehicles in the Bunyan. Believe it or not my son got two roosters on friday.(off the Spur road) They had short tail feathers and they were too stupid to survive the winter. Pheasent was the last thing we thought we would be eating on the deer opener. grin.gif We also flushed several grouse , Ken

Ryan and I passed up a real nice 8 pointer opening morning. considering it was opening day we decided to hold off. I've seen 3 other 8 pointers since, say 2 1/2 yr olds. Several smaller bucks. We caught a picture of a dandy on our trail camera, so we're trying to wait for him to come back.if you can tell me how to post the picture I'd post it.

We got four does in the smokey hills. Small but good eaters. Also one big buck that was a fork. This thing was really big though. We didn't hear as much shooting as we have in the past.

First time hunting in the area. Located near Pickerel Lake (sp?) Saw a bunch of does and a fawn on opening morning. Guy from our party dropped a nice 8pt with 16" spread at 11:30. Then my dad dropped a nice 10pt with 19.5" spread at 1:30.

Sunday was TOO hot, saw a few, nothing big but jumped a nice buck late in the afternoon while walking through the woods, could get a decent shot off because he was in the sapplings. Can't wait to head back up there tomorrow

Will try to post some picks, when registering in Emmaville, clerk said they were the biggest ones he saw this weekend!

Kidwalleye, was that you hunting in the portable recliner chair, way up in a Norway pine, right along County Road 4, West side of the road, South side of Pickeral Lake on the County land. If it was, I saw you there. My son and I were saying that you could make a long shot from there.

that sounds like someone I know, who lives right by where you saw that happen laugh.gif.

The only thing is, though, he owns over 200 acres of ag land and woods, so he doesn't need to hunt public land.

Not me. I was hunting private land in the smokey hills. North side of 34 off guyles road.

Sorry Kidwalleye, I got my wires crossed. It was Heiman507 that said he was hunting South of Pickeral Lake.

Well here it is Johna. It's not a Boone and Crocket, but it's a dandy. Ryan may have seen it last evening, but it didn't give him a shot. We saw another wall hanger while driving into our stands, yesterday afternoon. If we don't connect now, we'll get him with the muzzle loader

Sounds like you saw my younger brother. Its a decent location, but that little section was logged and all the saplings are starting to fill in so we had to get him in the air. Those portables are so fun setting up 15 ft up. crazy.gif

Yeah, we are on private land that is straight west of pickerel, I guess the road is Emma Township 1.

Had another good weekend. Got a nice 8pt friday morning (11/10) and a young 7pt later in the afternoon.

No digital camera, just film, so after i get them developed i'll post some pics

Kid,

If you don't mind, I would like to hear some details on the fork horned buck. Where did you shoot him in the Smokies, What did his horns look like? The reason for this is I drew on one of the biggest forks I have ever seen on my property a week or so before the gun season but couldn't get a shot. His horns came right out of his head in a "V" not up and out then forked. If this is the same one I would like to know where he ended up at.

Thanks.

Kenny

      I seen in the  paper it will be at Leech lake again this year.

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it. 
    • fishingstar
      you don't have any wires on your 7 pin plug that is heavy enough.  
    • PRO-V
      I would run wire straight to the battery with an in line fuse at the battery and use a separate 2 prong connector at the trailer.

      Unfortunately they have not found them yet. Freeze up  with the thin ice has really hampered the search. Too much ice for boats and not enough to travel on. As the ice thickens the searchers are working their way deeper. Such a sad situation.

      I’m hoping I can get some advice from you fine folks. I’m looking to install a small electric winch on my snowmobile trailer to load my skid house. I’m wondering if I can power it off the 7 pin connector?  From what I can find, my truck is fused at 10 amp and most of the winches I’m finding pull somewhere around 50 to 60 amps at 1500 lbs or so. I’m wondering what I could do to still run it off the 7 pin. Do I need to add a battery? Maybe a capacitor? i appreciate any thoughts you might have!

      I spotted them also this evening out from McKinley. A few more days yet before I will give it a try! Cliff

      First fisherman seen trying their luck today out from McKinley park access and Stuntz Bay access.

      Definitely not surprised with this change. One might as well license the wheel house anyway.  Keeping it legally “occupied” is a pain just to avoid buying the license.

      A public meeting to discuss a draft transition plan for Hill Annex Mine State Park will take place Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Calumet City Hall, 932 Gary St., Calumet. Legislation in 2017 guided five local partners (DNR, Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, Itasca County, City of Calumet and the Western Mesabi Mine Planning Board) to work on an alternate operating model for local management and operation of the Hill Annex Mine. The work group has concluded that operation of the site as a park under any jurisdiction is extremely unlikely and is proposing a feasibility study to explore other local economic development opportunities that preserve the history of Hill Annex Mine, promote existing amenities along the Mesabi Trail, and better connect the cities of Calumet and Marble. At the public meeting, the work group will hold a facilitated discussion to review feedback on the draft project report. The report will be submitted to the 2018 Legislature. Interested members of the public are welcome to attend and participate in the discussion. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
