      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 .

1st Bow Buck

Recommended Posts

I finally got a buck with my bow. First year hunting with it but I'm very proud. Shae helped find it with me in the Pitch Dark.

About 5:20 Thursday was on the stand looking and could see the horns walking through the woods. Grabbed the bow and for the next 30-40 minutes he slowly worked his way to me in the thickest junk around. Got to about 20 yds was about to step into a shooting lane and backed straight backwards and then kept working towards me. Got to about 12-15 yds from my stand and whistled and took my shot around 6. Saw the arrow hit a little far back but knew it was in the ribs. Called Shae and he was going to come through and helped. Went to look for the deer and had almost a harder time finding the dang tree stand (FYI Sorry Shae) then after that the hunt was on for it. Ran maybe 70 yds and died. Ran towards the road and up the hill, figured would rub that one in Got some nice pictures from shae with his phone and tried to keep them as clean as possible. Will be adding more in the future when shae get's them off of his phone but Except for ones where I got it capped out there is no blood. Do not know how to post pictures on here and just easier to post a link. http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2585309&l=0b8d2&id=13950794 Like I said tried to keep pictures pretty professional and will be adding more. Hope everyone else is having a good deer season and hope everyone is safe during rifle

code-man,

Congrats on your buck!!! where did you harvest this deer, Frazee or hawley country? Reason I asked is I will be rifle hunting this weekend in Frazee with my inlaws and was wondering how the rutting, activity was?

Again great job on the harvest, beautiful buck.

I was hunting NW of Ada. I was hunting over by DL mountain last night and didn't see anything but there are some scrapes out there. They are hitting them but must be at night. Buddy is hunting SW of DL and he is seeing them hard on the rut. Lots of chasing does.

Fishinmajishin,

I'll actually be between Frazee and Vergas on Rose Lake. My inlaws have about 80 acres that we hunt. Unfortunetly there is a bunch of a-holes that always push there luck and sit right on our fence and walk in our woods about 2 hours after shooting time. sorry for the rant

How about you?

Congrats!!!! Nice deer for anyone let alone your first.

Very Nice! Good job. Gotta love it when they run towards the road.

Had that happen to me once. It died about 20 yards from the road on a little hump and was able to back the truck right up to it and slide it in.

    • Uhhhhh... I for one am at a complete loss for words.
    • Here is a project for you when fishing gets slow.  
    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
