      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!!!

bombardier traxter ?

Recommended Posts

Looking at a 2001, that needs a starter, any idea what this would cost? My main question, in the nada book says it weighs 835#'s can this be right. I just want it for ice fishing and don't want one that heavy. Thanks for any help

Yeah the 835lbs is right, there heavy machines. Built like tanks. I use to work at a place that had a 5 traxters. We would use them year round. Most of our machines had between 7,000-10,000 miles on them. But we did have a couple new ones that had less than 500 miles. Over all these machines are the BEST work machine ever made, IMO. And I've rode pretty much all of them. There geared low with a strong motor. Top speed is maybe 50mph which is fast enough for me. The step-through design is nice if your getting on and off the machine alot. The front basket is nice for throwing tools into. The rear rack can handle a ton of weight, we would put two full size guys on the back rack and then have the driver so a total of three guys, the suspension handled it good, however steering became a problem because with that much weight on the back would cause the front tires to lift up. Our machines were rolled down hills, set on fire(because guys would be welding next to them), and abused alot. Sure some of the were rickety but they still ran and got the job done. I dont know if I would want it for just a trail machine but for a work machine they are awesome, seem to last a long time and reliable. If one came my way at the right price I would probably pick one up, especilly if it was the XL version(thats the one with the box on the back). Oh yeah the ES shifter is really nice.

    • But there would be more and bigger deer walking around. Probably better age structure too. 
    •   Well although all-out war on Deer for a week with any hunting tool would be interesting.   It would kind of take the romance out of it if your trying to use a Bow or a smoke gun and someone is snipeing your Deer at 200 yards with a rifle! 
    •   Well, first off if you are talking public lands it's tough to restrict how people legally harvest game because it's public.    And you are right,it's hard to compel farmers to give up income that they rely on just so someone can hunt something. My guess is if you are willing to invest your own dollars into your own personal place to hunt you can manage it more to your liking.    It would be good. The other option is to do what other states have done and that is having fewer people own larger tracts of land that they manage privately and you,as a consumer,can pay for the level of hunting you want. Texas has this where you pay based on the size of the deer. I suppose Minnesota could do this as well. Charge hunters per point on public land or something like that.    I think we should just move every season to a one week period around Thanksgiving. Archery,rifle, muzzleloader etc. Out of the rut and everyone on the same even playing field as far as time goes. Reducing the time they are pressured will help the herd.  Nobody should need any longer than that to hunt. Most of my life we only had two days to get our deer.  
    • well the redwing blackbirds are back. making all kinds of noise on the frozen pond today.
    •   Actually, the majority of the state's population does not hunt deer but most do drive cars so generally most people do not want more or larger deer. It's not just the voice of hunters that count.
    •   Can we start keeping fish next year?? Or only if they have 8 points?  
    •   Yeah, one of those little orange dotty things!
    • Well a gift fell into my lap today.  A coworker who I’ve hunted with once last fall called with an invitation to turkey hunt a 230 acre farm with him this year.  It’s in an area I’ve been looking over for a couple years.
