      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 .

Comfortable Deer Stand Seat?

Recommended Posts

Does any one have any suggestions for a semi portable deer stand seat to be used in a permanent stand? My floor is not completely closed, so stools with 3 legs make me a bit worried. I have seen some good designs of a stool that sits on the rim of a 5 gal bucket. Does any one else out there have any good ideas?

Thanks in advance.

What I use is one of those square plastic boxes with a swivel seat on top. They are available at Fleet Farm for about $40.00. The top is hinged and there is plenty of room for storage and it is weather tight.

I also use the green square bucket from Fleet Farm as described by MNice. I like to put all of my stuff inside of it and carry it to my stand. The greatest two features of this seat is the comfortable back and the silent swivel seat. it comes with a styrofoam insert if you want to use it as a cooler for your lunch and thermos. $40.00 is a little more than a lot of people would pay for a portable eat, but I can assure you they are worth the money. I have two of them.

We've got those spin seats that fit on a 5 gallon bucket. All of the stands have a bucket firmly attached with deck screws. Make sure you drill holes in the bottom of the bucket so the water drains out. Works pretty well.

Grabs, I've seen a plastic seat that straps on to the tree. You can even strap this seat on a tree if you were walking down a trail and wanted to sit and rest. I made one myself years ago. It's about as large as the seat from a portable stand. Check Fleet Farm.

Grabs -

I have a seat I got several years agao made by API I think. It straps on the tree just like a tree stand and then folds out with a padded aluminium frame, and nylon camo seat with a zipper pouch underneath. It looks exactly as if you had cut the top part of the frame and seat off one of their magnum tree stands. Don't know if they still make the seat seperately or not, but mine still works great! I take it out and hang it in my stand the first morning and take it down when I'm done for the season. Fold flat and ties easily onto my backpack. Good Luck!

Well this is what we use in our perm stands and it is quite comfortable and easy to install. Although this is a permanent seat. Get a plastic school chair(plastic stacking type. Not folding or anything with fabric. Hack saw the legs off the chair. Take a small piece(usually 5" x 7" will do but depends on chair) of treated plywood(5/8 or 3/4" thickness) and screw it into the base that the legs attached to. Then take a 3/4 floor flange and screw that into the plywood in the center. Drill a few small hole in the seat of the chair(drainage holes). Take a piece of 1'x1' treated plywood(1/2 - 3/4" thickness) screw that into the flooring(make sure to anchor it into each board it comes into contact with). Take another 3/4" floor flange and lag bolt ti into one of the boards through the plywood near the center of your stand. If you attach the floor flange into just one board it will flex. The plywood stiffens the whole thing up. Put some heavy grease(high pressure grease) into the threads of the floor flanges. Take a piece of 18" 3/4" threaded pipe and screw into the floor flanges(floor first then seat). Other than the seat all supplies are at your local lumber yard. You'll have a sturdy, comfortable and quiet rotating seat that will always be at your stand. That heavy grease lasts for years. But you can always add new stuff if you what to.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
