      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've hunted a some property for the past 11 years and the guy leased it. I've hunted another piece for the last 4 years the guy sold it. My brother and I didn't feel like going out on public land to see the clowns that sit in the car with shotguns. Is that good enough cooter??

Now Lets See some pictures!!!!!!!!!!!

I took this doe on Saturday afternoon. A group of five came through, she was in the lead and looked to be the biggest, so I let her have it. Good size doe, and VERY tasty back straps! This is my first deer with a rifle so it was kind of special to me. Boy was it cold Saturday! Saw a total of 14 deer from my stand.

Yeah I love this rifle. I also really like the looks of the CDL with the stainless fluted barrel. There was one at a gun show a few months ago in 30.06, with a Leupold Rifleman scope. It was used but you couldn't tell, absolutely mint condition. Beautiful rifle. I was there right at the end of the show, the guy selling was down to $625 and I didn't buy it. I must have stood there for an hour staring at it. I'm still kicking myself! Just couldn't justify it when I already have a rifle I am in love with.

Got another deer today. Was in the woods no more than 10 minutes, was walking along a ridge and spotted this guy. He took off and I could tell that he was injured. I was thinking he must have been shot by another hunter, so I shot him and he dropped. When I got down to him I saw that one front hoof was severely deformed and swollen. The other front leg was broke below the knee with the bone sticking out. Young, fat deer. I wonder how long he has been like this? Glad I put him out of his misery, there is no way this deer would have survived through the winter. He's obviously been eating okay, which makes me think he hasn't been like this for too long. At least not the broken leg. Feel sorry for a critter like him, hate to see an animal in pain. I don't think he was shot in the leg, I think he maybe got both legs caught in something. Either way, I got my Thanksgiving deer and made a good shot on him, so I'm proud of him. Here's a pic of him and the injured front legs.

    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
    • My dad, may he rest in peace, used an old wood cutting bandsaw that he converted by making some sort of kludgey plywood things to keep the blade on the wheels.   Worked fine.  Not sure how easy it was to clean.   Also not sure how much he worried about it.   Ease of disassembly for cleaning, and blade retention in the presence of food grease would seem to be the big issues.  He cut up a lot of deer and a few moose and nobody got sick...  for what that's worth.  
    • Well Del, that's 3 more than he had!
    • Well, I had three, and that's about all I got.   
    • They've been ice fishing Upper Red since Nov 7th Were on track for a traditional winter
    • Great question! The only time I've found a need to do that with the K drill, is when I drill multiple holes side by side.   Really glad I bought a K drill, super light, and fast. The way our winters seem to getting, with less and less ice; I'm considering selling the Lazer Mag. Maybe some year we'll see an old fashion MN winter with 3' of ice and tons of snow....
    • I just wanted to share some of my experiments with solar power and solar heat on my fish house. It's 8x12 with one 100 watt solar panel and a custom made 4x7 active solar heating panel on the back. It puts out some incredible heat for free, up to 110F. 
    • It's the cooking forum, someone asked about your bedtime eating habits. Not sure how that's not food/ cooking related. You didn't derail nuttin but maybe rundave can enlighten us.
