      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 .

After translating that, it appears you should make it through the spraying and spreading season with flying colors. Especially if your wife antes up with some cake from time to time. :D

My buddies sister use to work at Pillsbury in the food test lab back many years ago when we bear hunted. We would get skids of frosting, pie filling, and once a 55 gal drum of some kind of syrup. I would say that year we had the best dang bait in the state and we all filled out! :)

Yea it is sad! so much waste... you don't even have to pay for bait anymore!

When my daughter was young we use to go to the Wonder Store and get their old stuff. We had great fun together sitting in the garage opening Twinkies and other stuff and putting them all in bait buckets to haul to the woods for bait!

yes it is. Does your new contact have the same name as me? The guy I get mine from is from your neck of the woods and he has heard of you.

Boar, I'd get awfully fat hunting over your bait barrel!  Not to mention my scent would be all over the area with me walking back and forth from the stand to the barrel all the time...

lol, just wondering but what happens if you don't get drawn or is it a no quota area ? I figured not to collect anything until I get drawn ?

Right on, assumed, and best of luck, I'm somewhat guiding 3 hopeful guys in permit area 51(they put in lottery style). Got a giant of a bear that's been hanging around the past 3-4 years and they are hoping to get a chance at him and so am I. He really crushed, along with other bears, the standing corn last fall. One weird ? I have is bear season is rather lengthy compared to what I thought the season was so is there a best time meaning right at opener first 2 weeks or something or do more guys get them later in the season ? Would love to see a print out of when they are taken assuming right out of the gate is likely the most kills and most often hunted, do guys keep baiting right along through the whole season or is there a point it's just not gonna happen ?

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
