      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 .

I was wondering if it a "legal" to hang deer carcuses from a tree all winter for "feeding" the birds? It seems to me that it would be illegal

( dont ask why).as far as I know you must properly dispose of them, and where would you get one this time of the year except for a road kill.....................

As far as I know it's legal to hang a deer carcass for the birds. People up here do it all the time, and I've never heard different. I believe a DNR permit is required to possess a road-killed deer.

I've seen it done around here as well. Better that then in the ditch like I've seen. I would bet if you asked a sheriff for a road kill he'd let take it home. Might not be the best time of year though, with warmer temps and all. Stinky.

I talked to a C.O. and it is legal if the deer is taken legally or a permit for road kill and no meat is wasted.(See wanton Waste Laws}

Also sounds like a good way to attract other critters of the four legged variety.

I'm lucky, it pays to have good neighbors.

I guess I'd talk to the guy and see if you can get it taken care of, but I'll bet you already tried that.

Good Luck.

I think there are better ways to feed birds than hang a deer carcass in your yard. I think having to worry about all the other animals coming into the neighborhood to feed on it would be a problem.

Same here. Someone threw out the legs and head and other unusable deer parts on my land and my dog found them and had the same gastro-intestinal problems yours did till I followed him one day and found the garbage and was able to haul the parts out. I wouldn't hang a deer for the birds for that reason.

In the city no its not good, out in the country away from neighbors, I don't see it as a big deal.

Hung in a tree the only critter you might get into it is a pine martin.

They're pretty commonly hung in people's yard trees out of town up here, not in town.

All the birds that come to suet will come to a deer carcass. Most are the remains of the deer hunt, not a fresh carcass, so there are scraps of meat and tallow. Pine marten, fisher, any of the smaller members of the weasel family, as well as squirrels, will eat the tallow, and sometimes they get pulled down by wolves or coyotes at night and drug off.

If I lived out in the woods I'd have no problems hanging one like that.

Cousin cleared it with a CO in NW Iowa. Built a Buzzard Bird Feeder. Large pole in the ground with a 8 x 8 platform on top (w/bracing). Uses a ladder to put road kill on top so it keeps most four legged critters away.

After the deer season we usually leave the remains hanging in the trees for the birds. they love it and it is good for them in the winter. I probobly would not do it in town but here at home it bothers nobody else. Do you guys no the definition of a good neighbor?

Or you could just say, as the poet Robert Frost did, that good fences make good neighbors. smirk.gif

      Had another good weekend of fishing.  Fished Thursday evening to Saturday afternoon and found consistent action all hours of the day.  Caught 5 slotters 22-25", and was able to be picky on eaters, only keeping 15-17" walleyes.  Plenty of small eyes also, plus I caught 4 eelpout. I did learn a lesson on how to take eelpout off of the hook.  I tried to lift a 20" pout out of the hole by line and the hook pulled out and embedded the bobber in my styrofoam ceiling.  The next time I used the fish pliers to lift the slimy fish out. Had 10" of ice where I was, and a lot of large wheelhouses were being pulled out there.  Yesterday someone drove a Jeep out to a wheelhouse close by.  I think we will see a lot more vehicles driving out in the next week.  Fortunately the added weight hasn't pushed much water on top of the ice.

      I think the fourm would still be pretty strong....however when they split the fourm sites up & stuff and changed some things a few years ago it pretty much killed this site. Traffic is a crawl.....they blame it on new media like Facebook and other stuff......which is an excuse.....poor one at that.......the other ice fishing website I go to is stronger then ever.......This use to be my favorite site, today it's in sad shape & I only come because I remember what it once was hoping that it gets back to it someday.

      Big Marine had 8" at the north access out to the weeds before the main lake.  Lots of walkers, a number of wheelers.  5 inches past the weeds above the ice before the island.   Access was crazy...very inconsiderate people tripple parking, a guy I was with got parked in, trucks behind and in front of him.  Luckily I was parked beside him and was able to move enough that he could get his truck out.   Fishing was very slow.  Couple panfish, a bass and snake northern.

      I'm definitely itching to get on the river.

      I was out on Hiniker Pond last night. Had no luck with fish but I was after dark. Straight out from the pier about 30 yards you got a solid 3.75 to 4 inches. Duck lake has about 5 inches. Henry had 4 inches last week. Not sure about this week.

        Doc was up there with a couple of his boys on Thursday fishing out of portables.  He gave me a call when he was on the ice.  I said, “. Let me guess what you got on”.  Red stripe Demon with a female fat head hooked through the pooper hole on the dead stick and a purple smelt rattling flyer with a minnow head on the other pole.  I nailed it.  He still uses a jiggle stick for his dead stick.  He had to sign off as a fish came in on the Vex.  Put it in the bucket Shaky.

      Thanks for the reply. Ya, McNally's gets pounded right away. I looked at the ice in front of Schafer's in Onalaska yesterday; there was about 3.5" of ice near the docks, and then it got thinner in a hurry. Apparently someone got wet feet there earlier in the day.  I ended up at Lawrence Lake Marina just north of Brownsville yesterday. There was probably 4" of good clear ice, much better than what I found in  La Crosse. Will post pictures later, but I got one nice largemouth on a tip up at the Marina, one 10" perch, and a couple small perch.  Today I drove around Winona, and fished the backwater pond east of Latsch Island on the west side of the road. The ice there was...not real good.  I stuck close to shore on 3" of not-real-clear ice after my spud bar saved me from a cold bath a little farther out.  I caught a few small perch there, and a bunch of small bluegills. Nothing worth keeping, and nothing on the tip-up. Was expecting the ice to be a little better than what I found, but what do you do?
