      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 .

... with tags left for archery are headed out this weekend or planning to hunt soon. Our gun season pretty much ended on Sunday this past week with lots of drives and guys unloading at everything they saw. : P I'm thiking about going tomorrow morning for a few hours but not sure if its worth it. Haven't seen much on my trail cams this week and thinking I might want to give it another week or two to calm down further.

I didn't buy an archery tag for MN this year.. I still have 3 tags left for WI, their gun season is this week and they shut down archery during the gun season. I will be back in stand as soon as gun season is done.

I still have all my tags. grrrrr......

Anyway, I know I'm hunting the weekend of 12-9 in the metro. I'm not real excited about it though. Its a special hunt and the only reason we're hunting in Dec. is cause we didn't get any during the first 2 trys.

I know of a monster buck that made it through rifle season where I go, but I'm not sure when I'll get back up there.

I have all my tags unfilled. Passed on a couple marginal shots during bow season and messed up an encounter with a big 10 pointer. Rifle season was just plain quiet for us.

Anyway, I'll be trying to find deer this coming weekend! Something to poke an arrow through and fill the freezer with venison.

I'll be bowhunting, once the deer have a chance to come out of hiding. At least I hope the deer are hiding, because my season has been terrible so far!

I still have my archery tag. I will plan on taking as many does as I can from now out. Hunted this last weekend and honestly it was the best evening on stand thus far. Between 3 guys we had 3 shooter bucks 60-75 yrds from various stands on opposite sides of the field edges. 2 of the bucks were together and could be seen for 45 mins. My buddy forgot his grunt call so no attempt was made to get them closer. Both were 150" with the biggest probably pushing the 160" mark. The other buck we spoted before heading out with binos and it was easily 130" and very respectable but small compared to the giant we saw.

I have never been a big fan of hunting during gun season (3B) but the property we hunt is not being gun hunted and has become a safe haven for deer to move freely to feed etc...

At this point I am really glad I spent the summer with my buddies cleaning out the farmers old barn for permission to hunt the land exclusively. It wasn't so fun at the time but now I am good friends with the family and get to hunt a prime piece of SE Minnesotas finest hunting land. The land has a huge honey suckle problem, but we make it work, and have offered to take care of a majority of that next spring. We are leaving some for security thickets for the deer however.

I'll be headed out this weekend. With the lack of rut sign during the gun season I'm hoping to catch a few bucks in the mood. I've shot bucks rutting heavy the week after the close of gun season in the past.

Unfortunately I am out of tags. I bought the All-season licens and used an antlerless tag on an archery doe (first deer with a bow) and then shot another doe and a 10-point buck with my shotgun.

It was a really great season. I saw more deer than I ever have. Learned alot from bow hunting too.

Relatives will be around Thur and Fri but I may make it out Sat or Sunday, would be interesting to see how many muzzleloader blasts I hear. Debating on a morning or afternoon hunt, sleeping in one day and having a leisurely breakfast with the wife sounds appealing.... After eating too much turkey, a long pheasant hunt and some exercise is also apppealing....

Reminder to archery hunters, muzzleloading season opens up on Sat, blaze orange clothes are required.

Slow archery season for me, but a very good firearm season. Still have a couple tags left, but won't go out until Saturday with the muzzle loader. I'll probably bow hunt a couple more times in MN after that & hope to head back to WI with the bow for a long weekend one of the last two. It sure would be nice to get that EAB sticker going into next year.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
