      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 .

Hugonian here.

I will be archery hunting the Minnesota season and have season C and D tags for Wisconsin.

Saw a nice beard dragging tom cross the road onto my property last evening.

Hope he sticks around.

I will be trying to score my first bird with a bow this year.  After years of bagging birds with a gun, I figured it was time.  I just plan on hunting the MN season.  But there is a possibility of a quick trip to Nebraska.

I like strutting to first!

 

Morgan will be first up to bat at our house for the Minnesota season. I scouted again this morning and found a few groups of birds but only one of them was on land I can hunt. Not as many birds around as usual for me but it only takes one! If I can reach them in a decent spot Morgan will be playing hooky on Wednesday morning for a little while.

This sloppy mess going to change your tactics? If so how?

Ha never mind that its all dried up for some reason I thought yesterday was the 12th :cry: I guess I have been working too much overtime have not had a day off in a couple weeks.

 


I scored a 3 day access to a very nice property South of Lakeville. Its pretty much my dream place to hunt.

 

I am going out tomorrow at our farm in Dayton I may pass on a turkey given the opportunity just to hunt the other property. I am hoping that this will open a door to a new deer hunting property as well. I did see a nice Tom and two hens going down our property line though it may be hard to pass up one when the time comes :P

 

Good luck tomorrow everyone

I am trying to show my kids the ropes the next few weeks.

Oh Boy the opener was eventful.  Lots of birds and turkey talk!

Isaac had 9 toms & jakes around him for 45 mins.  What chaos in the woods.

 

We even got into an argument with a hen 15 yds out!  It was fun talking to her.

 

No shots yet for isaac.

I see how they are moving on the property a little blind and decoy readjustment and I should have them dead to rights. They were all coming straight behind me the big toms never say my decoys as they were block by my blind they git distracted when a hen came by from the other way... Tomorrow I am going to give this property a break and hunt my Clearwater property.

 

I only started to bring them in with loud aggressive calling

    • 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.
