      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 .

How Many Poeple Muzzy Hunt in Minnesota

Recommended Posts

Are you talking broadheads or front loaders?

I don't use Muzzy broadheads although there is nothing wrong with that....

I do spend a couple or more days with the front loader each year.

I have been hunting muzzloader season with my Dad and brother since I move to MN in 97'. I use my T.C. Encore 50 cal. for rifle season as well due to the fact there's alot of neighboring hunters in our area I don't care to shoot a high power rifle. I have been shooting black powder since I was a kid with my uncles and cousins, we used to shoot pretty faithfully every Sunday afternoon. It was alot of fun and a great way to spend time with family. It was all traditional guns at that time which added to the fun,in fact I used a 45 cal. Hawken rifle for the 1st two years I hunted in Minnesota until I missed a 12 pointer at 60 yards then It was time to step up to the Encore!! Since then I have bagged 14 deer with it and loved every minute of it!! grin

If I don't tag out with the bow or rifle I'll be going with the muzzle loader. I think the DNR made a mistake getting rid of the all season deer license. Before they were definitely getting my money whether I could use the license or not. This year if I tag out I won't be buying an extra Muzzle loader license.

I really want to get into muzzleloader hunting but its hard the fine the time. Epecially when I hunt as much as possible with the bow and rifle. I am going to get one some day but it might have to wait until the kids are grown and I have some more time. I do get out once or twice late season with the bow so that helps.

I went muzzleloader last year for the first time. I also use my muzzleloader with a scope during the regular seer season. I have not shot a deer yet, but I will keep trying till I do.

It is a fun gun to shoot, just wish I had more time and a place to shoot it more.

I am a happy muzzleloader man, I have had some good success with my optima. I might even use mine this year with a scope on it during slug season. Also during muzzy season, you almost have the woods to yourself, so all those reading don't do it wink

How many people muzzle load?? Too many, I started 16 yrs ago when the DNR didn't let you buy all these licenses. Now its just an extension of the shotgun season. I laugh every yr when I stop at the local sporting goods store 2 days befor the season start and they are selling new smoke poles like crazy. Nothing against nebies, but it takes ALOT more practice to get these guns tuned in. Its still the most rewarding hunting I do. Fresh snow + cold cold weather = great stalking!!

I will be out everyday except for the second weekend. My brother (who muzzy hunts also) is getting married that weekend. I might not go but I am the bestman. I love the quiet time just like bow hunting. I love the gun also.

I'll be muzzleloader hunting for the first time this year. I just bought my new gun last night. Going to sight it in this weekend. I'm going to use it for the regular gun season, not just ML season. should be fun.

I started last year somewhat out of a defensive move. For some reason the muzzle loader hunters around me felt that being the "deer season" read "rifle season" was over, they could pretty much hunt where ever they wanted. My property was constantly over run with muzzle loader hunters. Their usual response was "well rifle season is over so we figured it would be ok". What really got me was them shooting little bucks that we let go during the rifle season. Anyway, I now muzzle hunt mostly to roam my property to try and save the small bucks.

I have the last 5 years or so. I agree with the All-Season license I figured I might as well hunt with it. With three separate licenses I may just skip it & bowhunt then too. Kind of depends on how the season's gone & how much time I have. Shot one with the bow & one in WY already so it's not like I'll be hoping to save my season.

I found a good sale on the CVA Buckhorn 209 mag. I know that it's the cheapy one, but I figured I'd try it out and see if I like it before spending too much money. And if I do upgrade my girlfriend has already hinted and wanting it. I got the 777 pellets and some TC 240grain sabots, I figured 2 pellets? going to sight it in on friday. Just wanted to try something different, and it should be more accurate than my smooth bore 12gage.

I use the regular pyrodex pellets, 2 is all I have ever used. Same sabot I shoot nice! Just make sure to seat the bullet all the way down, a lot of guys will put a mark on there ramarod to know when it is all the way in. Sometimes after a few shots you think you are all the way in but not according to the mark.

    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
