      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 .

Anybody Drawing Tags

Recommended Posts

About 6 more days for Elk and Deer draw results to be posted, but so far I have drawn Pronghorn (Took me 7 points to draw, and I live in Colorado!) and Bear tags. Did not draw Sheep, again, got my check back in the mail about a week ago.

Here's my final tally for tags

Drew Archery Deer Unit 96

Drew Rifle Pronghorn Unit 87

Drew Sept Season Bear Unit 29 (Also good for 3 other Units)

Drew Point for Elk - Will buy OTC Archery Tag

Blanked on Sheep and Goat - Still accumulating Points.

Hope everyone is faring well with draws.

Don't forget to check on leftover tags when they become avalible.

Good luck everyone.

Looks like I get to go Muley hunting this fall, 2 other guys drew tags too. We will have Elk tags too both bulls and cows.

Where do you plan on hunting Sheep? We were hunting near Rand a number of years ago, I saw some Sheep up on the mtn. side, looks like a interesting hunt.

Cooter,

There are some very nice bulls that come out of 161, I think I saw your bull on a previous post, very nice, so far my best is a 5x5 and I have watched much bigger from afar but there wasn't enough light left in the day to chase them down, someday I'll get me one for the wall.

The Mulie tag kind of dictates when I go west Elk hunting these days, if I draw one I'm going and I'll get a Elk tag too, if I don't draw, I stay home. My Dad and Brother both put Mulies in the record book last year, one tipped 192 and the other tipped 193 for B&C, this year it's my turn! I hope...

I'd like to go out in September one year, that would be fun but I've been saying that for the past 20 years and it hasn't happend yet but I feel it getting closer.

The bull I got was pure luck - only elk I saw and we never heard a bugle. Got lucky and spotted him out feeding and made a good stalk and shot.

I hunted mulies in 28 last year and we saw some nice ones, nothing like the 190's your dad and bro got though. Time to figure out what to do with pref points, I have 4 for elk and 1 for deer and will not do any CO hunting this fall. My buddies from CO are hunting 70 this fall to test the waters, might be out in that unit in the near future. Later.

So how long have you guys been applying for your sheep and goat tags? I got my third point for both goats and sheep this year so I am eligeble to be in the draw next year even though it will still probably be years before I see any results, but since I am only 22 time is on my side.

I got my 3rd deer point this year as well and I think I'm going to shoot for a 54 1st rifle season tag next year. Anyone know how bad the winter kill was in the gunnison basin region?

Got points for 13 tags in 5 different states this year, and zero tags to show. Thinking about buying a leftover tag in wyoming though.

Without the headache of looking through the DOWs HSOforum, does anyone know if CO has a limit on how many species you can apply for pref points for....for some reason I think there is.

From what I have heard, winter kill in the Gunnison area seems to have been kept to a mim. this year. Massive supplimentle feeding programs throughout the region went very well over the winter. Pre-hunt numbers appear to be in good shape.

You can apply for every species if you want. You can only generate a preferance point for each species applied for each year. Only one application per species is accepted. Hope that helps.

    • picked up another 4.5lber last night at costco gonna give it another shot this weekend. @rl_sd they still had few others in the 4-7lb range left in the pile  I haven't seen any other places locally that have smaller ones like those.  
    • saw a few combines out last night taking beans out on my way home from work. Took dog for a run and saw a couple more. Based on the ruts left in the field probably going to be a while yet before they really get going on harvest. Ground is still pretty wet and soft. We are supposed to get more rain this weekend in the eastern half of the state so hopefully they get get a bunch of stuff out of the fields these next couple of days. I have heard that in the northern areas, brown county, potter county etc where the drought was really bad they probably wont even harvest and just leave a lot of stuff in the fields until insurance can look at it. Those that have something to harvest got just enough rain late in the season that they may be able to salvage something but don't see them harvesting anytime soon. Good luck to those going out this weekend I probably wont end up going. I just prefer cooler temps mainly for the dog. I shot 3 birds earlier this week so scratched the itch. I am gonna get things done around the house and wait for more crops to come out and cooler temps before I really start hitting it hard. 
    • I would also bleed them before storing in an ice box.
    • So many beautiful carps! Keep them coming
    • Heard about this trick before.
    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.
