      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 .

my brother was selected for the second year in a row to the BEMIDJI YOUTH SPECIAL HUNT. last year we had a blast he managed to get a buck in his sights but when he took off the safety the buck bolted. I hope we can get him his first deer this year.

on the other hand since my father will be sitting with him i plan to head to the local public lands for a chance to score for the first time this year. any tips/areas/locations/ deer movement you have been seeing would be great

I was out yesterday in the area and saw a few deer moving. Saw a decent 8 point buck. Last week someone shot a nice 12 point on public land near there. When are you hunting?

ac777,

I will be out there this weekend 17 i set up the stands and 18 and 19 we plan on hunting my brother for the special youth hunt with my dad. I will be near some spots i know THANKS TO WOODMAN.

WOODMAN,

Did you ever get lucky on any of those bucks you were after? Do you happen to know if any of the youth hunters took anything. As far as i knew on sunday when we left no one had registered a deer. I saw alot of deer but didnt get the does close enough. My brother saw a nice buck and as soon as he CLICKED off the safety he bolted along with 2 does. be sure to send me some pics if you get any just to get my brother PUMPED ha ha. my email address is my signature.

We have been seeing lots of does and fawns where you wil be heading, so hopefully they will walk by your brother when he is out there. Head down to where I showed you last year to hunt. I have not been back since my stand was stolen last year, so make sure you pull it every night! mad

Good luck and I will send you pictures as I get them!

Those big ones we just watched and drooled over, but they are nice to watch, and hopefully I can get some nice pictures of them if they are still around. I know of a 14 pointer that is in the area and still need to get him on film!

i know i saw a huge buck but it was on private property.. the one that has LLAMAS or whatever they are. I saw him both days eating on the edge of the tree line on whatever they had planted. there were 3 does with him both days too. Honestly I hope my brother gets something. I myself just want to see deer i dont care if I dont get a shot. Ive been out as much as I can out here and havent seen a thing while sitting on the stand. been to preston mn, houston, mn, local metro swamps, east bethel forest lake areas even rum river sf and NOTHING. Double washing my clothing for scent control and doing a bunch of extra stuff. putting in extra time on the stands and nothing. I want to know they are out there he he he. any good watering holes near your area or places to go eat?

Woodman,

    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.  
    • Way to go Ryan, and Dad. Can't wait to see the pics. Congrats
    • Well good weekend in the woods! Never got a bird in range! Will be back out! Nice Donbo!!!
    • Good job Wally, always love to see your early season successes.  Nice bird AS!  Long season ahead with no tag in the pocket huh?
    • Good job guys! Great start to the season.
    • Totally agree with you featherslayer. I have a bud who will be down May 2. Just as much fun calling for him and figuring strategy as shooting one myself. More fun actually.
    • Very disappointing season so far. Getting swept by Tampa Bay is unacceptable! No reason to believe we won’t get swept by the Yankees either. 4 game series against the twins could be exactly what Giancarlo Stanton needs to break out of his slump.
