      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 .

Deer Hunting Reports

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what's happening with the deer hunters in your neck of the woods? I would suspect that there is quite a bit of "rut" activity in the last couple of weeks. I know that the buck sign has exploded in the last two weeks in Northern MN. I'll be heading up November 19-20th for my 1st ever Canadian Whitetail experience with Camp Manitou. All indications are that this is a 1st class operation and I can't wait to meet Matt and his guide staff.

Looking forward to any reports.

Things are just starting to get into full swing, lots of rubs, scrapes, and plenty of bucks chasing does. The group that is leaving tomorrow went 8-9 with 1 guy missing, so all in all it was a good week. We are expecting good things for the next groups coming tomorrow.

Looking forwar to seeing you at camp in a week in a 1/2 bowhuntr.

I will post another report next weekend.

Acouple of nice deer above. Outfitter, make sure to post a picture of the Timber Wolf. I would rather get a big wolf than a deer anyday of the week. Thats awesome.

Thanks for posting the pictures, I couldn't get them all to upload for some reason.

If anyone is looking for next year, things are already pretty tight for new customers. We may be able to squeeze you into an early hunt, but you should be talking to your buddies and planning now.

If anyone has any new questions, just let me know.

Also, we will be launching a new HSOforum with all the new fishing and hunting pictures in a few days.

You can buy a wolf lic. over the counter and you can shoot 2 of them.

We had a few whitetail guys buy wolf tags, just in case they had a wolf walk by.

    • Went for a nice walk in the woods Sunday. Got one out of two hours of walking. Flushed a few but too many leaves yet. There's birds out their but I think the cool, wet spring affected brood survival.  
    • I donated these shells this week to an outdoor organization. All 500 of 'em!
    • So, Sunday mid morning I'm in a pretty good Walleye bite, two fish from a limit. And I stop to run in and watch the Vikings game.  note to self: Get head examined this week!  No stringers-right!
    • Not sure but if you throw some drab paint on it-it's a Duck Boat!
    • If I were to go back it wouldn't even have been a question.  Hydraulic is definitely the answer.
    • Opening day for grouse in the arrowhead I missed 3 birds and did not shoot at 4 due flying low over Finn. It was foggy raining but I did see 4 moose and a big black wolf. According to my phone I hiked 10.7 miles. sunday started off cloudy but the sun came out. The first trail about 30 yards from the car Finn flushed a grouse it flies up and straight down the trail bang one for one. Finn flushed 3 more birds on that trail but never saw them. The next trail we were walking down a grouse flew down in front of us and the grouse tried to hide in the clover in the middle of the tire tracks. Finn flushed it and went straight up and landed in a tree. Haha dumb bird I made a nice head shot and Finn made the retrieve.   We put on 9.8 miles but I left my phone in the car on two trails. Finn flushed a few more birds but I never fired a shot as they were to low or never seen them. For grouse numbers as high as the dnr said they must not have a great hatch or something. I was hoping to get some young dumb birds for Finn but we did not find them.
    • Tango at training? Good luck Zach. I am getting my duck gear ready.
    • I am going grouse hunting in the morning hopefully I can manage one or two for dinner I will be dogless this trip
