      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 .

In Carlos Avery wear as much Blaze Orange as you possibly can. Walk as deep in the woods as you dare.

I would even say when you are walking out - Make noise

There hasn't been nearly the pressure on Carlos this year as in years past and if you do your homework there are alot of out of the way places where a person can park, walk in and have the place to himself. Do your home work and have a backup plan in case someone shows up before you and is in your spot. At 29,000 acres there aought to be somewhere you can hunt without the masses.

Dnr site, county plat books and even atlas's will have the roads and boundries. If you do some driving around there are alot of dead end roads that but up to it. Most parking is on the side of the road but there are areas with designated parking lots as well.

If you go into Carlos, make sure you pay attention. I was bow hunting an area next to a cattail swamp a few years ago. Guy shot a bird out of a tree close to me - didn't see me - I wont ever go back. Be safe.

Not many bow hunters wear orange, and not many law abiding hunters shoot a bird out of a tree.

Like I said; just be careful. I'd hate to read about a fellow FM'er being bagged rather than being the bagger.

I was out this morning and saw a fair amount of pressure along the main roads, 97, broadway in Flake and 22 in Wyoming but when traveling along some of the lesser known spots only came across 2 vehicals in eight different areas. So depending on where you plan to hunt there are open spots with little to no pressure. Do the homework and you'll be able to get into areas without a ton of hunters.

I guess everyones experience is different, but, in terms of "calming down"; you asked.

I was out there yesterday afternoon for the last of the gun hunt. Although it was a little busy, I was able to find a spot where I was left alone. Unfortunately the deer left me alone as well. smile

Not much shooting and a lot of long faces driving out. Oh well there is always Zone 1

But I cant complain, I got my Crow Wing County doe in the freezer and I was antler hunting anyway. It was better than watching the queens hand the game over.

I hunted it last year and will do whatever I can to never go back there. People firing over your head, sounds like a war zone at first light. Way to many people and way to many that have no clue. Try to find some land another place if you can.

I dont think I would have the guts to go out there on opening morning. (or any morning before light for that matter) I have heard a few horror stories myself. By the second weekend, most of the ya-hoos are gone. I will go over for the afternoon hunts if I am back in town late in the week. Not too bad then...

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
