      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 Hunting 2007

Recommended Posts

Captain B.R.K

First weekend is done and how did you all do?

I went out with my the in-laws to the piece of property we hunt near Eden Valley opening day. I climbed into the stand with bow in hand and the others had guns.

8:00am came around and my father in law got a real nice 10 point buck- beautiful deer. That was it for our group of 3.

Got out to the stand after lunch and as we were walking in, we kicked up a deer mad.gif and the party hunting next to our piece of land shot twice and we thought they got the deer. That group spent the entire night hollerin' and screamin' through a big slough trying to find the deer. I know we didn't see anything because of their commotion...frustrating really!

The 10 point buck made up for the evening hunt!

How did you do?!?!

I hunted near Rice. Our group got 4 deer which is about average and all we want. I was happy. But, how can you not be happy while hunting.

I went near Babbit for the opener. First time in the big north woods. Saw only two white tails flicking in the brush on Sunday after the sun came out. No shots fired.

Friday night at 1:30am I had to go outside the cabin for awhile and as I was gazing at the bright moonlight I got to hear a wolf howl. Then three more joined in for a wolf chorus. One wolf was not too far away. Very neat to hear. If I was a deer I would have left the neighborhood. I'm glad I had a cabin to walk back into. Maybe that's why our group didn't see anything on Saturday.

Good Luck this coming weekend.

Sounds like people are seeing deer. Outdoor News was just delievered today 125,000 whitetails registered this past weekend! Not sure if that is good or bad?!? Depends how the rest of the year goes.

The heat didn't help this week.Temps are suppose to be cooler again starting tonight- through the next several weeks so hopefully that will get the rut going and get more deer moving.

Good Luck this weekend guys

Haven't hunted 2007 yet but looking forward to it. wink.gif We have a group of 7 and hunt the Wadena - Cass County line just a couple miles north of Oylen, MN. We ended up with 9. Two fawns, four does, and three bucks. Bucks we a 5 point, 6 point and 9 point. Saw plenty of deer Saturday morning alone between the 7 of us we saw 23 deer. Sunday evening when I took the 9 point there were 14 deer (two of them spikes) that were in the field just before he stepped out and another 4 that passed through the field behind me. Nine pointer was in the 230 pound dressed range with 19" inside spread. Registered him at the Motley BP sation on our way home Sun. night and was told he was by far the biggest registered there to that point. Hunting party is already looking forward to 2007.

      @river rat316 is turning into a walleye guy Boo!  Just let me know when you want to fish for gills again.
    • crappie king 42
      Moose is right. We fish the same area and all those lakes were sketchy with old sheets of ice and lots of open/skim ice. I have not been out this week but vetween my brother and friends i have heard the ice is all getting stronger. Idk if ive ever seen lakes freeze like this. Plus snow everyday makes it scary when u cant see the ice. No mater what dont go alone and just because u see people out there dont mean the ice is good. Lots of circumstanes this year where u have 6 inches in one spot and 5 feet away there is one inch

      Out of the north west part of the lake yesterday, found anywhere from 5-8 inches of ice.  Close to a few pressure ridges there was less than 3 inches.  There are a lot of patches of rough ice and pressure ridges so be careful.  Saw several places where spearer's were set up where they pushed the ice block under the ice and did not mark their holes, please people be cautions.

      Here's the scoop, Buddy Hillmen is now allowing 1/2 ton trucks with single axle wheel houses.. Also any size wheel house pulled by wheeler or side by side. Drive slow there's a bridge plate about a mile out. Do not try and cross berm to the south of road. I have all ready seen a couple tracks where they did not make it through. be safe use commom sense and enjoy such a grand lake. On a side note. Last weekend a small fish house was set up about 200 yards from me. Sunday I was driving by and noticed a plastic bag so I stopped to pick it up. It was pushed down into the augured hole and turned out to be a bag of poop. From now on I will be taking random pics of wheel houses and if I find that kind of crap again I will be reporting to dnr and expect a possible ticket in the mail.

      Some are fishing it.   But the winds kept parts open till Monday.  Be cautious as you go.  Ice thickness really varies.
