      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 .

Fiance's First Deer

Recommended Posts

Saturday morning my finace was able to get her first deer ever! I recently bought her a bow as she was interested in shooting. She decided she wanted to come with us to ND for rifle season to try to arrow one. I knew it would be a little tougher this way but figured there was a chance. Saturday morning we set up on the corner of mature cottonwoods, corn, and a thick tree planting. All seperated by fire breaks. Luckily with all the snow that fell I was able to make a decent ground blind out of a 3 foot snow drift. About 15 minutes after we could shoot a doe starts working her way directly toward us. She makes it all the way to the edge of the trees in front of us meanwhile keeping a watchful eye on us. At this point she is only 10 yards away and decides that she wants nothing more of this situation. She turned around and took a few steps back into the trees and stopped broadside in an opening. Meanwhile my fiance drew and shot after the deer had stopped. She made a perfect shot! She double lunged the deer and it only went 40 yards. I think I was more excited than she was. It couldn't have worked out any better.

Thats awesome. Looks like a nice doe and a great morning to be out. Love the pictures of all the new hunters that are getting deer this year. Seems to be more than normal. Really appears to be more women in the outdoors. I'd love to get mine to hunt, but its not her thing...

Great Job!

Hopefully I can get my wife to take an interest in bowhunting in the future. It would be a great way spend time together. With jobs and other stuff, it's difficult to find a hobby we both can enjoy together. Congrats to your fiance getting her first deer.

Man, you have totally screwed yourself on this one. Hunting is when a guy can be alone and solve the worlds problems - getting away from the wife :)Now, the wife will be out hunting and you have to stay home to take care of the kids smile

Kidding - well done - and congratulations!

    • I’ve heard people have been getting cited for not bringing up their lines to go their buddies houses less than 200 feet away.    What I haven’t heard is the reason why this legally different than having a tip up outside your house.  I won’t argue that it is different, just haven’t heard why, and what notification systems make it or break it.   Its another situation where the use of technology is moving faster than the laws.  I agree with Pro V: contact the DNR before you have to try to explain it on the ice.  Or maybe you’ve had to do that already.
    • Got another good ride in yesterday ,,, Almost took the same route as the last time I did the Tac but took a wrong turn and put on a few extra miles but still and enjoyable ride ,,, Had lunch at Side Lake and then headed out to the Bearskin trail ,,, Nice trail flat, straight and fast ,, A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way ,,, I think every one enjoyed the ride and trail conditions ,,, As I type the snow is falling and Im sure trail conditions are improving 
    • Good question to ask the warden.
    • I can't think of one reason to ever have a gas auger again... I get around 20 holes per battery this time of year with a lazer 7 inch
    • WAIT FOR IT Here is James Vladyka's story: This is one of my best friends. We grew up together and have made some crazy memories over the years. He joined the Army shortly after we got out of high school and there was many years where we had to make the best out of a few days of leave that he would get to hunt and fish.   To many years have passed 2 tours Iraq, 3 tours Afghanistan and a few years private contracting he has served our country proudly. Now he's retired and we are making more memories again.   This was another battle to add to his long list.  Brock landed this beautiful Pike through a 6 in kdrill hole on a 20" Jason Mitchell meat stick with a Clam Dropkick tipped with a white Super Jamei on 2 lbs CPT line.   The 14 inch white Crappie in it's mouth was placed there for a size reference. The assist goes to another one of my good friends not pictured Blaine Goad. He reach down the hole and help her come topside

    • They love them, I used to get 40# sacks for $16 in Thief River Falls at Hunters Outlet. Haven't had to work up there for a couple years now, it was a great buy.   One draw back was the small moths coming from the bag in the warm months. Came back from fishing in Alaska to a garage full of them one time.   
    • If I leave my 2 lines down when I leave my fishouse and go to my buddies house say 75’ away they are considered unattended and illegal, but what if the lines are on buzzer reels and I use a baby monitor to listen for a bite?
    • Yah, I bet I coulda looked that one up myself, eh? 
    • The Air fryer XL was 120.00 and the Air Fryer Oven was 160.00. If you Google Power Air Fryer or put a .com at the end you should find it. 3 or 4 easy payment of $39.99 depending on model and free shipping.
