      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 .

Favorite venison hamburger recipe?

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some ideas on what I could make with some of my venison burger other than jerky. Any suggestions?

Grind mine with bacon, then just make regular burgers on the grill. Don't get no better than that, though I do like a good meatloaf. smile

I'm actually making a big batch of italian venison meatballs tonight.

Its 1 part venison, 1 part pork, and you can add up to 1 part ground beef if you want as well but I don't. It gets seasoned with italian seasonings and then baked.

I'm making 9 pounds of them tonight. I freeze them and pull out just what I need for eat meal as I need them.

Other options:

You can also use ground venison in meatload, chilli, as burgers (mixed with eithe bacon or 80/20 ground beef), tacos, etc.

+1 on the bacon ground/mixed in! If I'm freezing a bunch though I usually just grind with 10% beef fat just so the burgers hold together and have some moisture.

I also love using plain venni burger for taco's, sloppy j's, maid-rites, etc since it's so lean. No greasy stuff to pour off.

I do this for poker night with the guys: I mix 50-50 venison burger and ground pork and make sloppy joe's. Just folllow the recipie on the little seasoning packet from McCormick's. I do add either a shake of Cayene pepper or Chipotle powder, sometimes both, to the mix. I haven't tried it but I am now thinking next poker night, I will go 50-25-25 and use venison, ground pork and pork sausage, or go 33-33-33%

i chop an onion into bite size pieces and mix the onion and worchestire sauce and some salt then make into patties. the ground bacon mixed in 50 50 is really really good too

one way to make the patties is to melt half stick butter in pan and cook the patties. put the cover on when you flip them and keep the cover on after you add the cheese and buns. makes a really soft moist steamed burger, bun and gooey cheese.

so many ways :>). I have been just mixing McCormicks Hamburger seasoning in with straight venny and having a burger. Really good. At our game feed last week we mixed 50/50 with ground pork and the the breakfast seasoning from Coborns. Very good burgers! Love bacon but preffer ground sausage with the venny if I mix. like that onion mixed in idea, gotta try that.

We like vennison and black bean enchalidas. Use venni hamburger, onion, salsa, and black beans. Fry up and fill tortillas with the meat bean mixture add some cheese rollup and place in baking pan. fill the pan with the roll ups and cover with enchallida sauce and more cheese, then bake.

We start at grind time by mixing an equal amount of venison with 20% fat beef grind, which yields a wonderful 10% lean burger. It can be used in any recipe as regular beef burger, maybe 3 or 4 in 100 will suspect its not regular hamburger, and patties hold together. Stretches the yield from the deer tremendously, and tastes fantastic.

    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
    • There’s a nice stretch of warm weather. I just wonder if it’s enough to melt our local lakes by opener    Then the fish have to spawn
    • Got gobbles off the roost and they are now on the ground.
    • Allready hear them 
    • Thank you jets for stomping us, we clearly needed to be put out of our misery. 
    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.
