      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 .

SD Whitetails

Recommended Posts

Anyone hunt SD for trophy whitetails? I really want to try it. For those of you who have some experience with this, What part of the state would be the best to go to for a trophy? I dont want to spend a bunch of time and money on just anywhere. FYI this would be self guided. Thanks

Actually I want to do a combo mullie/whitetail hunt either out there or Nebraska. I have a buddy who goes out to SODAK every year and they always get a nice mix of mullies and whitetails I will try to find out what are they hunt and let ya know. It will be awhile since I dont have his number and run into him on ocassion up town. If you want drop me an email and we can discuss the details of some of your thoughts as far as places to go without having to make a forum wide broadcast about it.

I've hunted whitetails in SD. I went rifle in the black hills and had a doe tag the first year and pulled a buck tag the next year. I will be going back Nov. 09 with a buck tag. I have seen some nice bucks and shot a dandy in 07. I want to get out there with my bow!!!! Let me know if you want any advice of info.

somehow or other my post on this topic didn't show up. being from South Dakota, I'd hafta recommend huunting east river. They do have the bigger bodies and racks on that side of the Missouri. The rangeland of the west simply doesn't have the forage to produce bruiser bucks. Sure, there are decent ones around if you can find land to hunt on. The "Hill's" have produced some nice bucks but the 170 & up class are few and far between. Tags are by lottery only and very few non-residents availiable in respective counties & Nat'l Forest land. There are a few outfitters on the river and the Cheyenne in the Wasta/Wall area that will take your check. But, if you don't have a tag by now I'm afraid you're outta luck. By the way, there is NO such thing as a "ranch tag". You can't buy a tag across the counter including archery. You can look at the GF&P site to see what counties have left over tags. You can contact me at GRNKPR @AOL.COM if you weant more info.

Not true at all. Lots of archery tags still available. I'm planning an archery hunt the first week of November and haven't bought my tags yet. Many of the drawings for firearm have passed but archery is wide-open. Check the SoDak GFP site.

And yes... the Dakota's have some nice deer. Different management philosophies across the border.

While pheasant hunting I've seen some very NICE deer in SoDak!!! This would be east river, south of Aberdeen. If it wasn't for family commitments, I would have went out there bowhunting this year, next year for sure!!!
