      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 .

I think especially for some of the newer archers, scent control and playing the wind would be a very informative podcast. Many times a archer can do all the right things as far as equipment and practice but if one does not set up right with the wind and use this to their advantage, there will probably be no shots all fall.

Many times, simply using latex or rubber gloves to move a branch or two can make the difference in not leaving any or at least as little scent as possible around the area one is going to hunt.

Just a thought Dietz.

Hope this helps.....

tips for hunting on public land

local archery shop owner interviews- leagues, equipment, facilities, upcoming events

Food Plots- types, process, equipment needed, best for MN / WI

success stories from local hunters- what equipment did they use, did they plant any food plots, was the location private or public land, did they use a scouting camera, a rangefinder, what time of day, amt ot time in the woods, etc

Selecting a stand or hunting blind

And how to use the internet (Google earth, fishingminnesota, local county GIS interactive sites) to improve your hunting success.

Thanks

Thinking of shop archery staff, I do believe I could talk with Neil at Cabin Fever Sporting goods and he may be willing to talk equipment and shooting.

Neil knows his equipment very well.

Food plot stuff wouldn't do to much god at this time of year, although it could help for next year.

How about Tips on field dressing and butchering, some newcomers maybe have never cut into a big game animal before, and don't know where to start.

that is a great idea especially with gun season not too far away...I for one have always brought my deer in to have processed but this year I am going to attempt to butcher my own and do most of my own processing...or maybe there are videos out there that the Mod's or other pro's would recommend...

Another vote for field dressing and butchering. Thanks!

This is my third season coming up- I got a Doe last year and all I had to go on was some instructions I downloaded from the internet to dress her. It went well, but It was quite dicey.

I would like to see how to distinquish a bedding area and feeding area in nothing more than hard woods and oak trees like my area in Brainerd. Trying to find where they are moving to and from is the hardest thing to pin point to figure out where to set stands.

Very good idea. I know plenty of deer hunters that would like to learn how and its not that tough. One can really save some moola.

I am sure this has been covered in the past...but there always seems to be a lot of interest from people new to the sport about proper fitting equipment, draw length..draw weight..etc. Might not hurt to have a couple minutes on the topic. I like all the other suggestions as well.

Thanks

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
