      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 .

Wild pig hunting in MN

Recommended Posts

I heard that there was a game farm somewhere by LittleFalls that has wild boar hunting. I can not find any information on the web. If anyone has any information on where and who I could contact I would really appreciate it. Thanks

You'd have to check but I don't believe wild pigs are even legal on 'game farms' in MN. If you do ever see one - shoot it! ...after positively identifying it of course.

on a KFAN outdoors episode a few weeks ago, Captain was saying there was a report of a group of hogs that were loose in Western MN; and no one has seen them for awhile in the area; and now they are worried that they have moved elsewhere and expanding...

There is a "gamefarm" that had pighunts up near little falls but it is somewhat of a canned hunt. The hogs are planted a day or so before you "hunt" them. The property is fenced in but fairly large with ample cover for the hogs to roam. I did one of these hunts up there but it was nearly 20 years ago and I don't know if they are still in operation. If I could recall the name of the ranch I would post it. Might want to try one of the area forums that includes little falls and inquire there.

if there is such a thing as a "game Farm" that runs pigs ya better hope they don't get out. Several states are really having problems with them tearing up the land. As mentioned...see em????...kill em!!!!!

What? I'm from the Canby area, and I never heard about it. Was it actually Wild Hogs, or just hogs escaped from a farm? Crazyness.

They did a spread about it in the startrib not to long ago. Some seem to think they were potbellies that were ditched after they became to big to be cute around the house.

Why wouldn't the DNR want you to shoot them?????! Why not let private citizens help get rid of them, instead of spending big bucks trapping them or hiring sharp shooters??

I've only read about it but it has something to do with the perception that you can't get them all via hunting and that when they are hunted they are more difficult to trap. I believe the DNR here and in WI believe trapping is the most effective solution. Given the risk of disease and the damage they do I would think it would be a top priority to get rid of them ASAP.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
