      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 .

Seeing any fawns yet???

Anyone seeing any fawns yet???

We should be close. It's always exciting to see them when they first start venturing out. Figured some would be showing up on trail camera before the rest see them in our yards.

Grandpa always said when I cut first crop hay there's fawns, sometimes in the mower unfortunately as tight as they hold and lay. What I have seen are some does that seem to be searching around for a quiet out of the way spot to have them. As early as a few farmers reported seeing breeding of does they could come a bit sooner then later. PS. Time is right now to kill every coyote you can.

I got pictures of some newborns last year and it was the 17th of May.  Should be seeing some in the next week or so.

My father in law saw his first fawn in Siren, Wi in early May. I did the 200 day gestation count back and the calculations said doe would have been bred on Oct 22nd. This would shoot holes in the early- mid November breeding theory. Was this just an isolated incident or are rut/ breeding times way off base?

Not a single fawn on cam as of 2 weeks ago. 

Got a chocolate bear, a timberwolf(pic confirmed by the International wolf center in Ely) and coyotes. Lots of fawn eaters on the farm in OTC.

fawns that survive are lucky SOBs now days. Continued sad state of affairs with the deer in our area.

Lots of fawns and deer in general for us.  Have some bears on camera.   No yotes or wolves yet.  I trapped a bunch of yotes last winter.  It appears as though that has helped. 

You did something about your predator problem instead of just complaining about it???? What a concept!

I cant shoot a wolf. Cant shoot a bear out of season. Neighbor shot/trapped 15 coyotes this past winter. My apologies that I cant cant camp out on the hunting land and kill more coyotes. Come on down and shoot em. I have offered it up to many, but nobody seems to want to do it after the big talk comes out. Plenty of things in life that dont allow unlimited time to go take care of predators in my life when I live 125 miles away.

Since our legislators and elected officials won't or can't help us out, it's our job as sportsmen to help out the deer population and control the predator population. We all know the predation problems on the land, it's ok to do some maintenance to keep every thing in check. We will have zero deer if we leave it up to our Govt.

Deer are thick as thieves around my place. There are two does with three fawns you can see in my backyard right in the middle of the day. Garden thieves I call them.

    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
    •   It may be that they knew the folks up there needed a little extra help because they couldn't get the Righty tighty-Lefty loosey deal down. So, they had to make special trucks just for the Yukon Territory?  
    • Couple things to keep in mind. Various wheels will require varying torque settings and it should be ON the wheel, or in the owners manual. If you are in a shop make a point of TELLING them what torque settings you want used on your tires/wheels. And of course big difference if you have steel or cast aluminum wheels.  Years back, believe it or no, some Dodge trucks would tighten turning LEFT and then on the other side they would tighten turning RIGHT!  You need not ask me how I know this but it all took place in the middle of the Yukon Territory.
