      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Venison Steak Sandwiches

Recommended Posts

This is a really simple way to produce some tasty steak sandwiches. I grew up with this as a staple for beef, but since I started hunting I adapted it to venison. The key is preparing the thin steak portions without making them tough or chewy.


1 to 2lb venison roast (round or rump)

1 large onion (or 2 medium)

Worcestershire Sauce





1. Freeze the venison roast (if you are like me you have a few usually in the freezer anyway).

2. Let it thaw for a couple of hours - just to the point at which it becomes a little pliable, but still mostly frozen.

3. Cut 1/4" thick slices - across the grain and downward at a 30 degree angle to maximize size and tenderness.

4. Pound them with a meat mallet (or a big heavy dish) so that they thin out to about an 1/8" thick. The meat will plump when cooked and come back mostly to it's orginal size, but will be far more tender.

5. Put a good amount of salt and pepper on each side. Most will end up diluted in a broth.

6. Sprinkle on some Worcestershire Sauce. Just a couple of drops per slice does the trick.

7. Place slices in a large skillet on medium-high heat for two minutes.

8. Flip and cook for another two minutes. Both sides should be browned, but not cooked all the way through.

9. Petal cut a large onion. Kind of like how they do a blooming onion, but cut all the way through. This makes all the onion pieces close to the same size.

10. Throw the onion on top of the steak pieces in the skillet.

11. Pour just enough water into the skillet to almost cover the onions.

12. Place a cover on the skillet and reduce heat to low.

13. Allow everything to simmer until the onions are tender and the water has turned a healthy shade of brown. I usually let this go about twenty to thirty minutes.

Cut up a roll of your choosing and serve up several steak slices on it. Pile on an obscene amount of onions (if you are married, that is the amount right between dirty looks and sleeping on the couch).

You can eat as is, or add steak sauce like I do.

It usually makes a great Saturday dinner, or can be easily made while camping.

I can attest to the awesomeness of this recipe. TMC is my room mate and this recipe has been one that just always comes out right. Mighty tasty. Just had it last weekend.

Sometimes those experiments with venison work better than they do with beef. One day you guys will have to ask nicely for the bourbon tenderloin recipe he has. Best tenderloin you will ever eat, no doubt about it.

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
