      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 .

Hi guys, I am new to posting on this site. I was thinking about skipping the MN bear season in favor of hunting in Ontario, Canada. I have been given an opportunity to hunt for under a 1000.00. The location is up by Lake Nipigon. I was wondering if anyone else has hunted in the area. If so, how big are the bears and what type of opportunity rates did you have. Also, thinking of hunting towards the end of Sept. I didn't know if this would be too late as the season starts this weekend. Thanks for any info and I enjoy the site.

The place is up by Beardsmore and Jellicoe. I believe it is Pasha Lake resorts. The owners seem to be wonderful people from all of the references I have talked with. Do you think going up the end of Sept or first part of Oct would be too late? My dream has always been to get a bear and I don't want to spend the money if my chances are not as good. Thanks.

Hey Rusty,

I would jump at that trip if you are getting everything for under a $1000, price seems to good to pass.

I don't know about the area, but in my area the prime time seems to be between aug. 27- sept. 15.

We seem to get 15-18 days where it is prime.

Oct. seems late, but if you do it - good luck.

Thanks Outfitter,

That's what I've been hearing about when to go. The only problem is my wife is expecting around the first part of Sept. I was told they get their bigger bears towards the end of season, but things aren't as active. If I don't go up this year, I still plan on hunting here in MN. Do you know an estimate of how much a mount would be if I get a bear?

If you are looking for a bear rug, I have seen prices for $140/ft.

If you are looking for something like a should mount it should be around $450.

Check in your local area prices should vary a bit.

Thanks again, that is what I was thinking it might cost. My wife is fine with me going on the trip, but is worried about me spending more money to put a bear on the wall. Thinks it is a waste of money. I am just so happy to be married during the hunting season.

For some reason I think my buddy was on to something when his wife and him split up during the golf season. He has golfed more this year than any other year in his life. I wonder if my wife would go for a 3 to 4 month split every year?

Lots of bears in the Jellicoe area, I have hunters that hunted out that way before. They had good hunts, but it wasn't with the same outfit, it doesn't ring a bell anyway. The early to mid Sept is a real good time for numbers of bears and good opportunity at getting to look at different bears and be selective. The Oct hunts are usually not as many bears being seen and more sporatic on the baits, but a real good time to get a monster. Most want the best of both and Oct could leave you with an empty tag or that bruiser you are after.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
