      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 .

Looking for other waterfowlers in Wright County

Recommended Posts

Morning all,

Here's a little background: I've been hunting waterfowl for a few years now and have recently relocated to the Montrose area (south of Buffalo and West of Delano). I try to be as responsible as possible while hunting, yet still try to have some fun. I don't know many people in the area and don't have any real "spots" picked out yet. I'm looking for someone (or a group) to go waterfowling with. I'm a pretty decent caller, nothing fancy but good at the basics. If you know of or have land I'd be willing to work for permission to hunt. I'm planning on hitting early goose pretty hard and then a weekend or two in Oct for regular season. I'm up for land or water hunting. I've got two dogs that are trained for waterfowl, my own boat and motor (hopefully will be running by early goose opener), 2 dozen goose dekes (I think I can borrow about a dozen more), and a blind on the boat.

Let me know if anyone is up for it!

Hey jwhawkridge

I'm moving back to the cities from Brainerd. I grew up around Monticello don't have any private land to go on but have a lot of decent public land spots around Monticello and Morris I hunt. Myself I'm looking to move around the Rockford,Delano, maybe Montrose area. I have a dog a running boat with blind, too many decoys and wouldn't mind going out a couple times. Drop me a line maybe sometime aschmitt@onvoy.com

Later

I went to High School in Buffalo and hunted the Montrose area a bit. I know my buddies had some pretty good Canada hunts around there. Right outside of town there is a giant WMA that we hunted a few times. Its hard as heck to get out to water because there are about 200 yards of cattails to drag your gear through, but it does hold ducks. The only problem is that there are just enough crazy guys to haul their gear that far to keep the birds under fairly steady pressure. Other than that, it's just a matter of putting some miles down and seeing what the land has to offer. I know it's really been built up since I hunted there not even 6 years ago, but there ought to be spots around. My advice is this: the further you get out of the cities, the better the hunting will be.

    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.  
    •   Well you must be talking about my old-New Cat?   Tore it down and found a finger tight head bolt and loose carb boot bolt!  Someone at the Cat plant went to lunch a little early!! The cylinder is in the shop right now so it may be back on the lake fishing anyway yet this year?  High speed trails. May be not?
    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
