      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 .

Wondering if anyone has a recipe for deer heart.  I usually brine for a night then boil with a whole onion and some garlic and few other spices.  

Any other ideas?

Here's my recipe that I've used for many, many years with lots of complements. 

1) Shoot Deer.

2) Pull guts and inners out.

3) Leave pile on forest floor to chill until some varmint comes by to enjoy it.

They love it every time!  :P

My brother smoked deer hearts, he slices the heart before brining, that's a pretty dense muscle to marinate whole.

 

I quit eating deer heart, animal organs gave a lit of cholesterol I've been told.

Me too - I've never considered it before but gutted out my deer this year and the heart was in perfect shape, thought what the heck and threw it in the snowbank while I finished up and found a box of ziplocks in the truck.

Followed Hank Shaw's instructions on opening it up to remove the aorta, etc. and then separating into three separate pieces.  Marinated for a few hours and grilled it along with the tenderloins, sliced everything up on a plate and fed it to the family without saying anything more that it was two different cuts of venison.  The heart was hands down everyone's favorite, after every last piece was gone I informed them we had just polished off the heart - a few sideways looks but now the kids have been asking when we can have deer heart again!

I have had the heart before and found it to be very good. I think I will take some marinade along on my muzzleloader hunt and hopefully grill one up.

So I ended up putting it in a brine overnight, then seasoned it with a little of this and that.  Boiled it for 4 hours with 2 onions and clove of garlic and added cinnamon weird I know but turned out fantastic.

    • Sure it is.  A high powered pellet rifle is almost a necessity if you can’t be cracking off 22 long rifles around the house.  I’ll have no further contributions to derailing this thread. 
    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
