      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 .

How do you spend your hunting season?

Recommended Posts

Is it run and gun or do you all enjoy a more heritage style?

Part of it to me should be teaching others quality hunting. I took my wife who is a non hunter with me once. We both had a great time. She was scarred out of her wits though...LOL

Being that I tree stand hunt we opted to find a downed pine. From there, every little sound[especially those red squirrels] had her moving her head around like a deer showing it's alertness...LOL

I really get a kick out of those times and that to me is very worth my time hunting.

Good luck as the season aproaches {yes, 3 months till bow opener, early goose and dove!!!} be a good person and try to think about whom you could enjoy your hunt with. As with all sports It's in sharing. And we should never expect anyone to be like ourselves, as we are all individual.

Hope you enjoy yours as much as I do mine..Now go get started!

Get re-aquainted with your guns and bows atlatels and slingshots.

And take someone with.

I dont push myself like I used to I prefer to hunt in a relaxed state of mind an take it all in. My son has Aspergers syndrom an likes to ice fish but dosent want to hunt so I only push him as far as just coming out a sitting with me once in a while, he dosent want to kill anything, I started to take his best freind with last year on early season doe an he took his first deer, this year I might graduate him to regular firearms season, an build a blind big enough to fit three so we can all go, if my son sees his freind do it then he might get the calling if not, thats just the way he rolls.

I brought my wife out deer hunting for the first time five years ago. We bought a two man deer stand so I could sit with her. I remember it being 10 below that opener but she was a trooper, and she ended up shooting a spike. That spike was the biggest trophy I ever seen, if you know what I mean.

She has not missed a season sense.

I also bring my nephew out but he is yet to close the deal. I am teaching him how to skin, quarter, and debone a deer after you shoot it. With the warm temps the last few openers I do this the day I shoot them. I am also showing him how to make sausage. I feel these skills may end up lost with so many people opting to bring them in for processing. I feel if he hunts as an adult and brings them in at least he knows how its done.

I don't hunt near as hard as I use to but I still hunt many days in the fall. My mornings are for me and I drink coffe and maybe once in 5 days I will hunt for a few hours. Now, the evenings are that special time for me bow hunting when I hunt pretty hard.

Seems I shoot just as many deer as before but I don't put near the pressure on myself any longer.

It's all for fun and maybe a big one.

    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer. 
    • I have a 4 channel car stereo, that I installed in my wheelhouse. I only hooked up 2 speakers, the 2 fronts. I’m not much of a music person, more for news/ weather.  The problem is it sounds like dump, no bass, all treble. Is that because I don’t have the other 2 speaker connected? Can all the speakers be the same kind or does a different type speaker need to be connected to the other channels. don’t have much stereo knowledge, so any help would be appreciated.  
    • Thanks for the additional info guys.  I think the back right corner is where mine were too well done also. How about your experiences with Collagen casings - I used up some that were a year old, and they seemed to fall apart a bit or almost get a little mushy.  Should I stay away from old ones?
    • Surface tension should know this one? He's a Nils sharpening guy!
    • My Dad traded a boat last year for a wheel house and I would guess the house was never registered.  We mostly rebuilt it from the ground up because it was too wide to pull down the road.  Anyway, my Dad passed away early this year before he could register or use it.  It was handed down to me and I am a little confused how to get it registered.  I don't have any receipts for anything and it's 7.5'x12'.  So, under 3k lbs is my guess.  Any ideas?
