      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 .

Using Bonus tag first and putting on the tag........

Recommended Posts

I got into this talk last weekend with some hunters and we were talking how many they got and small talk when one of them said to the other hunter in the group, I still have my main tag so I can shoot a buck because i used my bonus tag on the doe i shot and I told him and his buddy that I don't think that is correct and that he would have used his main tag first and then his bonus tag or I'm I completely wrong. Another thing, when putting your tag on, you need to use string or something to tie on to the deer and I think there should be a better way or I'm I missing something

Thanks

You can use your bonus tag first on a doe.

Correct, the string attachment is a poor design, I had mine fall off this year. Bring a zip tie with you, they work much better.

Like already stated you can use your bonus tag first. As far as attaching the tag a zip tie works great. Also this year you do not have to attach the site tag until you have it out of the woods and on your four wheeler or in your vehicle.

Slight correction. I'm not trying to harrass you here and this may seem a bit picky but it could lead to potential issue so I thought I throw it in.

Your statement says, "out of the woods." You are correct that you do not need to put the tag on until you load your deer onto a means of transport like an ATV or other vehicle but where I think your a bit off is the statement I pointed out. I believe that if you load your deer onto your ATV or into a trailer pulled by your ATV, in others words a vehicle, then you must have the tag affixed even if you are still in the woods, so to speak. You don't need it attached if your dragging it out. The idea being that it would be too easy to loose it in the process.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Just wouldn't want someone to get into trouble thinking they were okay until they actually got out of the woods.

My brother nearly got cited for this once but the CO decided to let him off with just a warning.

Bob, maybe I should have been more spacific, you are right. once it is on any type of motorized transportation the tag needs to be attached. If you are dragging it by hand you do not need to attach the tag at the kill sight. It was worse when they had the tags that you had to peel off the backing, put a string between and stick the two halves together. The biggest problem with the current tags is finding the hole the string is supposed to go.

Thanks for the clarification.

I miss the old tags that tore off and you peeled the backing off and stuck it around the leg or anill has a couple of his old mettlers. My dad still has a couple of his old metal tags around the antler mounts.

I remember the metal tags. Once they were clipped together on a deer they weren't coming apart. That was a time of Bucks Only in Zone 1.

Then the self stick paper tags came along. Don't remove the backing on the sticky side until you've inserted the tag between the leg bone and tendon. smile

Now you use a string and you punch a hole. I've forgotten to bring string and used bootlace. I spent some time looking at the site tag for the spot were up punch the hole out, like and X or 0, or "punch hole here". Whats to stop an unscrupulous guy from untying his tag and put it on another deer?

The zip tie is a very good idea, one I'll use from now on.

    • That seems like a great deal on the 7.  I was happy with $450 for the 5 at the Ice Show. When I was shopping for my 5 I found a few online retailers selling it for around $430 with free shipping, but they were all based in Florida and I wanted to be able to take it back to a store if there were any problems. Plus something doesn't seem right about buying ice fishing gear from a store in Florida. FWIW the prices I saw at the St. Paul Ice Show on the 5 was $450 from Reeds and Thorne Bros. $459 from Joes. Didn't check the Marine General booth.
    • Looks like a good buck to me Scoot, not many that big where I hunt in WI to be honest and I'd be hard pressed to let him walk even if I knew a bigger one might be in the area.  
    • Yes, I've found my manuals online. Maybe I'm too old school, but still would prefer an actual booklet to page through.  I've downloaded it to my phone - otherwise I would be SOL up north in many areas as I rarely get coverage up there (and I don't really complain about that - nice to get a break from technology).
    • Ya nice to have a competent backup. Just for fun I checked on Kuemper, he is putting up great numbers for the kings but they have been hot. 
    • Win some and lose some.  I wanted my million dollar idea 'Uber shovels' to take off until I found out someone is doing something similar in other states.
    • I just checked Amazon and you can get one for $16.  Another place indicated that a block heater takes up to 1500 watts and the one I checked on Amazon is good for up to 1800 watts.  Looks like it would work as far as I can tell.   So much for my business opportunity.
    • Just be sure before you make any big changes to the interior that you can get your holes in the right places without hitting cross braces.  
    • From what I understand,the new g2 chirp series is a big improvement over the prior generation helix unit in terms of interference rejection and sonar definition. By sending multiple bursts of sonar at different frequencies you get finer details and less clutter. You also need to use the newest generation ice ducer to get the most detail.    I negotiated it to just under $550 which is quite a discount and it was in stock and in state so I should have it by the weekend.   I really like the new display as well. I have had lowrance units from day 1 but they don't have anything to compare to this at this price point. 
    • I was looking for some input on what direction to go with my wheel house.  We did quite a bit of work on it this past summer and now it's time for some interior upgrades. I have been in a few houses and they always seemed to have semi-crappy layouts.   Here is the current layout, it's a clean slate.  I know I can save space switching heaters but stays for this year and maybe next.   The inside dimensions are 6' 6" wide by 12' long and 6' high.  I was thinking of moving the holes around and maybe adding this:        
    • they have app controlled outlets also.  20 bucks and your phone turns it on and off.  Those can also be set to a timer if needed.
