      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.

    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.

    • He'll still go to Sly-Vee and buy it.
