      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 .

Me and my dad drew a tag for zone 62 (first time applying) and we will be hunting out of the sawbill landing. Any info or stories about moose in this zone would be appreciated. Thanks

Congrats, I was in your zone last fall with a friend who had a permit. We hunted out of Homer Lake, paddling into Vern lake which had a fire in 1999 and is an excellent spot to hunt. I have been on Sawbill many times and have never seen a moose on this lake though I have seen moose on Kelso lake which is only one short portage in. I have also hunted on the western border of this zone going in at Kawishiwi Lake and paddling up to Kawashong Lake. We saw many moose in this area. All three of these choices are relatively easy moose hunts, at least for the BWCA, as far as getting your moose out. I would recommend either Kawishiwi or Vern as the best areas. If you want you can even stay at the campground at Kawishiwi and make day trips. Check on water levels however, as the river up to Kashawong can be tough to navigate if the water is down and you have a moose in the canoe on the way out. Vern also has a tough portage if the water is down though it is very short. We took a moose out of Vern in one load starting at 9:00am and were to the truck by 11:30am. All of the trees on Vern are probably around 15' or so and most are aspen, it is ideal moose country. Kawishiwi is really low and swampy with more mature pines with moose browse mainly along the water ways. Vern has a very nice campsite on the west shore and another just south of the portage. Kashawong has a nice site on the north side of the lake near the portage to the Polly Lake. If you have further questions I would be happy to assist in any way.

Kurtkwe,

Came across this post on area 62. I drew a permit on 62 as well and would love to hear your thoughts, learn as much as I can from your experience. My email is donmcalpine@chartermi.net.

Good luck to both groups who will be hunting in 62! We put in for 62 but didn't get drawn. I've been on a few BWCA trips out of Sawbill the past few years and have seen moose each trip - last year a very nice bull on Zenith lake before the dreaded Lujenida portage. Keep us posted!

StickNstring,

Had a great hunt in 62. Shot a nice bull 20 minutes into the season! Est 5 1/2 - 6 1/2 year old bull.

Wish I could do it all over again!

So do I (wish I could do it all over again). This Forum was very helpful with my 2007 hunt, by the way.

Here is our moose: IMGA0138.jpg
