      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 .

I used to live in Red Wing and I think that whole area in the river bottoms is PRIMO big monster buck territory... Very similar geography to Buffalo Co Wisc. and we all know what that produces.

I like how the pic with her is black and white.

Obviously trying to keep the hype out of the fact she wasnt wearing any orange clothing for the pictures in the field.

Dang, what a deer. I thought MN didnt have any big bucks. smile

Kelly, her husband, and especially her brothers have always been great hunters. Every year they put alot of work into deer hunting, especially on the food plot/planting end. My brothers and I each went to school with a member of the Otto family, so we know them quite well. With all the effort that they put into it, and the pedigree of the property they hunt, I'm not surprised by their success.

This is a deer they've been watching for some time now, and it's a testament to what some hard work and passing on little bucks can do.

Probably will go top ten biggest muzzleloader bucks ever taken by a woman in MN.

Congrats!

Joel

I'd have to agree with you Quackaddict9. There is no way in [PoorWordUsage] that some of those points are over an inch. I also counted 17 points on this buck. I don't think this lady knows how to get the facts straight on her buck. I think she got really excited and didnt realize that the points had to be at least an inch long. She even named it after Brock Lesner.

Good god, who gives a rip how many points it has, the thing is a HOG and you are counting points from a picture, you have no idea what actually is a point and what is not. Always gotta be someone on this forum point out what they think is a flaw in something they have no clue about. You think since the time of the kill to when the story was reported she or her husband didn't count the points more than once?

The only bad thing about that buck is that there aren't more like it here in MN!

    • Isn't a tow rope standard equipment on that brand?    Just kidding. Looks like a nice sled for the price.
    • Picked the unit up last night and assembled.  Hoping for the best come Thursday.  Might be some disappointed people if the thing doesn't work!  I'll try to give an update on how the thing works.
    • I actually cooked the heart from my dads deer this year. First time I ever had it and it won't be the last. I thought it was darn delicious.
    • The roaster method actually worked pretty well to finish the sausage.  Typically when i would try to finish in the smoker and at times in the oven i would get hot spots where part of the sausage would get burnt or dried out and other spots were not up to temp.  With the water bath all of the sausage is at the same temperature so it is a more consistent product.  I found that i needed to keep the dial on the roaster around 375 to maintain the water temp at 160 ish.  Summer sausage with hi temp pepper jack cheese.
    • The missing one that people usually put up when they post a food thread. To show if the Gloop they are posting a recipe for is worth reproducing. Looks like you already have it in a garbage bag so.......     That picture!
    • never stopped.
    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!
