      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 .

Fall Classic

Recommended Posts

I went up north mid week last week with my friend Stan and we were able to come away with a few keeper images. The first one is my favorite.

Great shots both, Mike. That first one's rack has tons of character, and as chicks said the fall color adds a nice seasonal context. Very cool!

Very nice indeed Buzz! I'll go with the first as well for all of the reasons already mentioned.

That first one should be in the monthly challenge, and then enter it into a contest and win something. Gorgeous shots.

I think it would be an appropriate favor for this moderator if buzz would e-mail me some GPS coords for that bruiser. gringringrin

Nice shots, after looking at the buck I see where all the antler points went from the spikes and forkys I see around here.

You'll have to sweeten the pot brotha Steve. grin Ya know its Deer season and the hunters checking in here are probably getting antler envey about now. I know I've never seen anything over a 12 pointer myself while sitting on a stand, let alone a 22, 23 or 24 pointer like this one. (I assume you count all the lil tines) Heck, how many do you guys count? Here is a better angle for counting I think.

I think they count anything longer than 1", but I'm not a deer hunter. I like that last shot too.

The first buck looked like it might be starting to get a swollen neck but the 2nd buck looks like it has a was to go before it gets into a rut smirk

I looked at thepictures and thought man what a nice buck then Jimalm brought up the fact that there are plural bucks. two hosses. I wouldn't have been pressing the shutter on those things, I would have been pulling the release on my bow

Know of quite a few, how many you want? Couple of em not too far from my house, If I had to guess there are probably 30-40 registered deer farms in MN. But thats just a guess. There is a guy up here that this summer had a huge Elk in his pen, havn't driven out that way to see if he still had him or not. I used to ride my bike that way just to get a look at the beast!!! There is a red deer farm in Center City, them are cool lookin things for sure. Then of coarse we have the Buffalo in Lindstrom too..

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!
