      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 .

We are coming out to Montana again this year. Going to be in the Jordan Area, were near Broadus last year. We were told that there are more goats in the Jordan area. Anyway, was wondering how the weather has been? Dry or wet, and if that is a good area to hunt them. Thanks alot.

HunterLee,

I will check with some of the locals I work with that speed goat hunt and get back to you tomorrow with a report.

The drawing for Montana is conducted on July 21st. I have put in for the zone 530 Northwest of Roundup and there are all kinds of goats in that area. But as for the 700 zones there is a total this year of something like 13,000+ tags be given out.

Regards,

Chris

We havent got the results back, but it is almost a sure deal. There was only 60 or so last year that didn't get a tag, and i believe they added more tags for this year. I did however get my $10 conservation stamp/tag thing, so at least i know they got the money.

I've hunted both Broadus and Jordan areas. Both have lots of goats, but I think there are more near Broadus. Public land may be easier to come by near Jordan though. Either way you're in for a great time. Love those speed goats...

Well the results are in for the FWP lottery:

I was sucessful on both my Antelope & Elk Permits!!! So the hunt planning is in effect and time to get to the range and dial the rifles in.

Hunterlee I spoke with a couple of friends of mine and they said the Jordan area is loaded with goats so you should have a great time. If you haven't already done so go online to the FWP and request to get your BMA books mailed out after Aug 15th to plan your hunt. Then the books let you scout out what big game the ranches are managing for in your hunting zone. Then you can request the maps & contact info for ea BMA that requires written permission to hunt their land. A great resource out here in MT. The daily "Sign in" BMA's I guess are pretty heavily hunted, but the ones that require written permission are less likely to be over hunted because they have limits on the number of hunters per day.

Good luck,

Chirs

You're right. I've hunted the "sign in" areas and they do get hit hard. They do however still hold good numbers of antelope though the big bucks are not very plentifull. Still a good option though.

i didnt get drawn for the 700 zone for goats, its a sad day for me right now

Seriously? Seems I recall that's about a 95% chance of drawing. Dude, stay out of the casinos.

haha i know, but the werid thing i was contacting some different people out their tresspass hunt people different areas just for fun and one told me the chance of a non res getting drawn was like 5-10% in the 700 zone. Oh well ill do the 900 next year then and thats 100% so if i try and and get denied then i know something is wrong

Well we scored on the 900 zone tag, we figured we would, but i like to get the results. We already had a ranch lined up. Its about 30000 acres so we should get chance at something.

Hows the weather been out there, hopefully dry, have been keeping an eye on the weather and its hot today out there.

Thanks for all the replies.

Its not like WY or MT but theres enough nat`l grassland and WIA that you`ll find somewhere to hunt. Plus if a guy just asks most ranchers say shoot them all. We had a rancher drive out on the grassland, pick us up, drive back to his place and say go shoot those right there. Good Luck

    • I can recall,   farther back than you think, of running into one now and then and finding one inn a trap from time to time. And this was MORE than fifty years ago,  so they've been around a while. Maybe just an uptick in the population in southern MN.
    • For any of you that have ever had a desire to do any sledding in the Black Hills... This is definitely the year to do it. This is by far the most snow that I have seen out there. On most years, you can get lucky to ride either the Northern or Southern hills... This year both are awesome and the meadows are full! I am hoping to get out there once more before the end of the month.
    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer
