      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 .

Join the club Jesse.. I grew up in the cities which means I never had a place to hunt..Had to get lucky to have the ones I have now .....My advice.....Make a ton of friends chat guys up at every bar you go to or anytime you get the chance to.. Try to find people who enjoy hunting like you do and eventually if you are lucky you'll make connections and gain access to some spots..Or you can just do what I do most of the time and head North to the millions of acres of public grouse woods where you don't need to know or owe anyone..Sorry that's not much help and good luck....uplander

CHeck out the DNR"s rec compass. It lists all the public land in MN using google maps. Its a great resource.

Otherwise you're gonna have to burns some gas, wear some boot soles out and start knockin.

You can buy public rec maps at outdoors stores like Gander for about $5, and it shows all the WMA's and WPA'a in the state. Quite a few within 30-60 minutes away from the cities in various directions. I've hunted some around Hugo, Wyoming, Elko/New Market, etc. There are some I passed up that are even closer, figured those would be hit even harder. Not gonna flush a ton of birds cause they get pressured pretty hard, but it's always worth a shot.

    • Just wondering what people use for portable chairs. Bucket, fold up, tripod, etc. Been looking at some nice fold up chairs with a padded swivel seat. But they are 11 pounds each. I want to stay as light as possible. I also have a tripod chair but don't really like a post riding up my crotch. 
    • I like my Eagle Claw. My only gripe is that because there is no hole for the line to go through it will come over the OD of the main spool and get wrapped around the release button. Then I end up having to loosen the button until it comes off. The line will then be free and then have to put the button back on and re-tighten it. I like the composit material because it is not cold to the touch when using bare hands. I also use my finger as a drag to control the free spooling. Sometimes it will spin too fast let out too much line.
    • that's part of the reason I didn't jump on this one cause I thought you yanking a chain or two...
    • There's a few good videos on the tube for ideas.        
    • You sound like a BBQ fence sitter to me....
    • Buddy and I each have a Bearcat and we're looking to ditch the handhelds and mount a GPS/Depthfinder unit behind the windshield.  Anyone have any tips?  What units did you use? (seems like Helix's are common) I'd also like to mount a lightbar somewhere on the front for improved lighting.  My auger cradle up front blocks the headlight somewhat and it sure would be nice to have a really bright light up front at night.  I was thinking maybe mount it somewhere on the cradle (it's steel and then I'm not ruining my sled hood) and then have a quick disconnect somewhere on the wiring in case I want to ride without the auger/cradle on. Pictures + ideas appreciated!
    •  It's been many years since I've shot my black powder gun and is very clean  but I'm thinking I'd like to take it out this year and deer hunt. I used to shoot a ball  and would probably like to do that  for hunting  It's been so long so I'm a little bit rusty. I used to get black powder in Superior Wisconsin  but the store that I used to get it at no longer carries it.  Does anybody know any place within driving distance to  get black powder or could I order it through the mail?  Before I take it out and shoot it I need to have the accessories to clean it.  Many years ago when I used to shoot it a lot, are used to have a tube that would connect to the nipple or I would take the nipple off and reconnect another one and draw water through that to clean it.  Can you believe I've forgotten how this procedure is done?   Thanks to all that reply  
    • To add ontop of this i just noticed that the cold lead and the sensor cannot be routed in the same conduit and the electrician only did one. what would your suggestion be there?
    • We are going to be using this fish house as camper as well so that is why I put outdoor speakers in. I don't see myself using them on the lake. I only turn the strobes on when someone is coming out to the house or when we go to shore/bar so it is easier to find when we come back. It is corrugated steel my Dad got from tearing down an old shed. Sounds like VTX has some if you're interested or there is a lot of people on hsolist selling it. 
    • Yeah, I apologise for derailing the thread. I was just making a good natured observation and it seems a few took it far more serious than it really was. I enjoy doing it as well.
