      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 .

Looks more like it should be sitting along a prison wall. Kinda looks like it's in Texas...maybe a border patrol tower?? Where is the wet bar? A TV?? GTHOH. Guess the critters don't mind the generators running. Not exactly what I would call hunting. How embarrassing.

That would be more of a novelty thing for me. Not really hunting. Not saying I wouldnt take one for free and hunt out of it once a year tho.

how serious of a hunter are they? half of hunting is being out in the elements, be it hot, cold, rainy, snowy. but if ya got the money, oh well. i'd just prefer a ladder stand anyways

That stand is very nice, but I agree, it is not hunting. You may as well sit in the cabin.

Most of us don't really hunt anyways, IMO. If you sit in a stand and just wait, that really isn't a hunt. With the small amount of ground to cover,(like most people have) that is the only thing you can do though.

My stand is roughly 5x5 also. I like having enough room to bring a pack with me and room to move and stand up if I want to. If you don't have private land, you don't have that choice though.

I would like to add sides and a roof to mine in case we actually do get winter one of these years.

That stand is rediculous. i could never hunt out of something like that. At my cabin we have a 12x12 stand, without carpet or a heater or anything, and although its nice as a wind break for awhile. It gets too comfortable and i find myself falling asleep alot more. Not to mention it doesnt feel as much like hunting as finding a tree and planting it right underneath it.

I would kill to have a cabin that nice!!

I agree that really isn't hunting, but if that is what you want to do, so be it. Not me though. I like taking in all the sights, sounds, fresh air etc. If I wanted each and every luxury of home, I would stay there.

I hated it alot more 3 years ago before i shot 5 deer in 3 years out of that stand. But i would still rather walk aimlessly until i find a nice spot to sit for awhile.

    • 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!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
    • The mats aren't the worst option and would make sense for those days when the kids are you playing in the pool/sprinkler.  I'd still need to find a solution that prevents me from killing myself when taking the dog out in the winter.    I think my plan for now is to try one of the grip additives and test it out in an out of the way spot to see how it works.  If that looks promising I'll go that route and see how it goes. If that doesn't work then I'll look at other options. 
    • Well it looks like a successful morning, buddy got his bird. Weieghed in at 25.6#'s  10" beard and spurs 1 1/8". Heres the happy hunter.
    • Archery ia certainly a different bird! I too would probably have had a nice tom as well if I had a shotgun tag.   The biggest draw back for me is It make me much less Mobile.  A new test of my patience.
