      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 .

Hunting turkeys with a dog or dog's?

Recommended Posts

Shack

Is this legal or am I a turkey my self for thinking of such a thing. I never have hunted turkey's yet, but I have encountered them in the woods. When they get spooked, there very stealthy things on getting away in thick cover. Maybe you could hunt them like coons. They are just like any other game bird. You corner them and they flush. As a matter of fact, I think they are the only bird you never hear people hunting with dogs.

Anyone know why it would be illegal? I do not plan on furthering post any further as I do not want spark anything.

Usually when Ken states good luck, it feel it may mean good luck with post and further replies. Turkey hunting is a big topic on the forum right now and I am not tring to upset anyone. Has this topic been brought up before?

It acctually is legal in some states, only for fall hunting, they use them to bust up the flocks then call them back and the dogs lay next to the hunters in a little blind....

But in MN it is illegal.

Turkeys are managed as big game rather than the upland game classification. Many of those same game laws that protect deer protect turkeys.

For additional background on why I'd encourage you to email the good folks at the MN DNR. They have always replied to my questions in a respectful prompt manner.

This is a strange subject. I have been out running the dog in the fall and seen a turkey or two. Once we were walking an area dnr land and came across a turkey. The dogs moved in, pointed and the turkey held. I walked in to flush what I thought was going to be a pheasant. Woosh the darn thing took to flight. It scared the heck out of me. It only flew about 15 yrds then landed, because it had an arrow sticking threw its body. It was early fall(out conditioning the dogs for SD opener) and I figure it was a deer archery hunter as fall turkeys was not open yet.

I don't think hunting them with dogs would work very well. The only reason that one held was because that poacher had shot him, and he still had an arrow in him. Most others I see while out with the dogs are hightailing it before we start into the field.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.
