      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 .

My son has never hunted them but wants to give it a try this year. I don't think he really knows what to do with them once he shoots them as far as skinning them out or where to bring them after that? Any ideas from those that have. Or do you just trash can them? :confused:

at least keep the tail.  We used to have a contest when we hunted them in AZ.  Had to keep the tail to prove the kill.  It was warm there though.  If I was a kid I'd tinker with skinning one and experiment with tanning it myself.

He can go to either the Minnesota Forest Zone Trappers Assn, or the Minnesota Trappers Assn for information on how to take care of the fur and potential markets.  Both organizations have web pages, and are happy to help new fur harvestors get started.

Melby fur in New London will buy them in the round. Not sure what they are going for this year though. IMO it's a waste to hunt them if you're just gonna leave them lay. On another note if you happen to get one that looks a little mangy don't even touch it. There are kits you can buy for tanning your own or you can have it sent away and get it back in a few months. You tube has a lot of videos to help also.

Did the old shoot and let lay today while pheasant hunting. I was walking a ten foot wide berm in a picked cornfield and had one jump up five feet away and I hammered it as it ran across the corn stubble. That thing was sleeping so soundly it let the dog go right by and I was right on top of it when it woke up and took off. It had a big open sore on it's back so I let it lay. That was the fourth coyote I have shot over the years while pheasant hunting. Got a couple of roosters too.

I'm with eyeguy and hate to say that but yes please shoot trap do whatever it takes I guess legally to put a hurting on them as they are serious fawn killers each spring until the fawn makes it to 10 weeks old, then predation drops heavy so think about mid-May to end of june also, as there's no season and I know their fur looks like a great uncles beard but please, their numbers are at all time highs in many places in MN. I know mange will eventually even the score but can't hope for that so please thin them out as much as possible, trying to get as many onboard as possible due to such a poor crop of fawns following the mild winter/spring last year, save a fawn drop some yotes,bears(in season),bobcats(in season),stray dogs like I really care about calling a CO to do that job, go ahead fine me for these dogs that have partially ruined 2 deer seasons for me, these jack owners could give a rats or they would have them under control talking dogs.

Coyotes in Minnesota are an unprotected species.  There are no closed seasons for unprotected species and you do not need to have a license to take them.

Residents and nonresidents are not required to have a license to hunt unprotected species including coyote. (MN Hunting Regs. p24)

Thx !  I always thought that but a guy told me different. As big as the reg book is I missed it. LOL

from the regs

WHAT ARE UNPROTECTED ANIMALS? • Unprotected birds include: house sparrows, starlings, common pigeons, Eurasian collared dove, chukar partridge, quail, other than northern bobwhite, and monk parakeets are unprotected and may be taken at any time. • Unprotected mammals include: Weasels, coyotes, gophers, porcupines, striped skunks, and all other mammals for which there are no closed seasons or other protection are unprotected animals. • Unprotected birds and mammals may be taken in any manner, except with the aid of artificial lights or by using a motor vehicle to drive, chase, run over, or kill the animal. • Poisons may be used only when the safety of humans and animals is ensured and in accordance with state and federal restrictions. Do I need a license to hunt unprotected species? No. Residents and nonresidents are not required to have a license to hunt unprotected species including coyote. Nonresidents do not need a furbearer hunting license in addition to their small game license to hunt fox.

I thought that also but figured you already had a small game license and most people do.  I also couldn't find it handily in the Big Book of regs.  Good to know in case my son wants to go since he isn't Mr Small Game.

Are there any legal issues with leaving yote carcasses on public land? I know they don't want people dumping deer remains on public land so it seems like they powers that be would probably want you taking the yotes with you and dumping them in the trash or something.  Do you guys do anything different whether you are on public or private land?

I have never hunted yotes so I'm not very well informed on what people do with them and so far I haven't encountered one when I had the chance of killing it.  Seems I mostly run across them either in places I can't discharge a firearm or when I don't have a weapon with me.

I think the last coyote I got was consumed by coyotes lol. Sure seems like each rifle season they vanish pretty well and I don't hear them like I do on every calm night, maybe the next full moon period they'll get yappin. I think they busted out of our sections as no 1 shot a deer in either section this year so no gutpiles, no yotes it seems, but don't doubt the crafty yote is still meandering around but they've been silent since rifle opened and not visible not that they are too often and nofish's last sentence says it all.

For guys that have hunted them what calling do you start with when you first set up? And is a rabbit call better then a fawn call?

I think my son and I are going to try and clean a few out of our Deer hunting area this winter. There's a lot of Wolves in the area as well. Hope we don't make any mistakes in ID? :whistle:

@leech~~

There is a time and place for fawn in distress, this time of year I don't have much success using it. It is a great sound in the summer or early fall, but winter not so much.

If you are in an area that gets a lot of calling pressure the electronic calls might not get any response. Most guys hit the e-caller and let it ride with rabbit in distress. Because it works. But try a bird sound like wood pecker or partridge or pheasant distress and you might do better.

I prefer hand calls as nobody blows a distress call the same as anyone else. I could give you my calls and have you blow a sequence and it will sound way different than my sequence. But they take time to learn.

Keep the wind in your face and set up where they will have a hard time working in behind you. Then kill what you call, because an educated dog is very hard to call in a second or third time.

 

good luck!!!

    • Smurfy's just stirrin' the pot, those union guys must have lotsa free time.......    Say Delmar, yer Cub foods has corn for TEN CENTS AN EAR in their ad this week....
    • I buy from his buddy's truck.   What more does he want?   Sometimes I buy at walmart instead.  Life goes on, Brah  obla dee obla dah
    • WTF are you talking about?  You are already judging me so bring it on.  Tell me about your training.  Cite studies that show the deficiencies of treadmills.   Cite studies that show how Chiropractic cures diabetes and cancer...   Come on, you want to engage in a battle of wits?  Don't come half equipped.   Heat? How about I repost the bizarre chiropractic stuff?  Or have you disavowed it of late?    
    • I read about someone else fishing them like that, so gave it a try.  I use a smaller paddle tail sometimes or this last weekend I was using a SK Rodent. I've kinda switched to Dbombs and Pit bosses for t-rigs, so I figured I would use up some of those Rodents. They worked good on the Chatterbait for action, but tore up kinda fast.   This technique works best I think in dirtier water for me. I would definately have a t-rig ready too. Been catching a lot on them too!
    • You sure are into this huggin' and kissy stuff. Are you one of those touchy-feely "Oh I'm so happy" free spirit type guys?!        
    • Well, I didn't have any results anywhere close to that... we had a good time at the cabin we stayed at (got home Saturday), but fishing was very tough... if we end up going up there again next year I'll be in touch...
    • Do I need to answer to you? Absolutely not, especially when you are going to try to put together some physics logic behind why treadmills are good, completely neglecting to describe how muscles function with a protagonist and antagonist relationship.  Meaning when your quads are suppose to relax and your hamstrings are suppose to engage and vice versa.  When that doesn't happen over and over again due to the belt doing the hamstrings work, then you are developing an inefficient movement pattern (compensation) and you can expect pain, arthritis, injury, replacement, etc. (Familiar, I know the arthritis bit is) You are training yourself not to work like you were created to work.  Although for you Del, I completely understand if you think you are smarter then how we as a species got to be who we are today.  Or at least you can find something to copy and paste from somebody else whom feels the way you do, who also got dooped into buying a treadmill or pays a monthly fee to walk on a treadmill.  If you want to start judging me, I can judge you Del and this can be very fun for me but then all the snowflakes on here would melt because I brought some heat.  Your old timer buddies would come and save you, delete half my postings that expose you know absolutely nothing about this topic, you all can cry about how I am so mean and hate filled, and then not troll me for a few months until you are updated with one of my postings and then crawl right back into an argument where I make you look stupid all over.  Up to you buddy.   Dave, I got 32 seconds into that video, couldnt stand the guy and stopped it.
    • I'm no expert on this stuff but I'm guessing this is what Dr. Juice is alluding to in his own condescending way.....    
    • I am still waiting for something exciting on the Wild front...nothing yet that is for sure...just hoping the same old guys have some gas left in the tank at the end of the year and the "young kids" have finally graduated and can bring it to another level...it's all about the playoffs...getting in is easy...actually making any sort of run is the is where the rubber meets the road. Cullen making a "family" decision vs a "hockey" decision was lucky for Chuck that is for sure and Cullen is not going to bring us to another level...but will be an OK role player and 3rd or 4th liner..probably will fill the jersey of a young guy we have unfortunately..but it is what it is.
    • Which questions?  The one about your education?   Must have been a long time ago since I don't recall it.  I do remember you being a big big huge fan of Chiropractic.   Perhaps you could refresh my memory, it shouldn't take long to post your CV   And I guess you must have missed physics class as well, since in physics calculations of forces are the same no matter the frame of reference, yet you continue to suggest there is a difference between a frame referenced to a person's center of mass, and one referenced to the earth.   I did see this article from a newspaper.... The author must have at least as much qualification as you do http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/muscles-worked-out-using-treadmill-7727.html What Muscles Are Worked Out When Using a Treadmill? The treadmill is a versatile exercise machine that lets users walk, jog and run on flat or uphill surfaces. In addition to providing an effective cardiovascular workout, treadmills also help strengthen the muscles of the legs and butt. Depending on the incline, you can work the front or the rear of your legs more intensely; however, every treadmill workout strengthens both.   The Quadriceps People who walk and jog on the treadmill with regularity gain endurance and strength in the quadriceps muscles. The quadriceps are named for the four large muscles on the front of the thighs; they are the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. These muscles help the body jump and squat in addition to walking and running. As a result, treadmill exercise applies to more than just working out; it also improves the ease with which you go about activities of daily living. The Hamstrings Like the quadriceps, "hamstrings" is also a collective name for a muscle group. The hamstrings, comprising the biceps femoris, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus, lie between the buttocks and the back of the knee on the rear thigh. The muscles of the hamstrings are used for power walking and running in addition to squatting and jumping, and -- in general -- the more you exercise on the treadmill, the greater your hamstrings' endurance gains will become. However, according to the University of Wisconsin, roughly a quarter of collegiate athletes who sprint injure their hamstrings. As a result, warm up on the treadmill slowly, and increase running speeds gradually. The Calves The calf muscles of the rear lower leg, comprising the gastrocnemius and the soleus, also work hard during treadmill exercise. According to a study from the Laboratory of Medical Physics in The Netherlands, most of the work performed by the calf muscles occurs as you push off from your toes while walking, running and jumping. You can increase the workload on your calves -- and your hamstrings -- by increasing the incline on the treadmill. The Glutes The glutes make up the muscles of the rear end and, like the leg muscles, help you walk, jump and run. "Fitness" magazine reports that people who set their treadmills to a steep incline increase the workload on their glutes significantly, which increases strength, improves endurance and burns fat and calories. Although the treadmill helps you gain leg strength, the machine is primarily known for its cardiovascular health benefits. As a result, if you exercise regularly on a treadmill you can expect health gains on the inside of your body as well as the outside.
