      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 .

What to do?? I have a family hunting cabin in northern MN and recently found a dead deer on county land in which my neighbors hunt only on opening weekend. The deer was perfect lung shot and less than 30 yards away from the deer stand in which it was persumably shot and they only had used. You could see the belly of the 120-140lb doe from the stand and blood spray clearly from the stand even after 1 week of snow rain mix. In my mind you would have to be blind to miss it. To top it off there was another gut pile within 15 feet of the doe. To give you a backround we dont get along with the neighbor, because he rents out his cabin to about 8 guys that clearly are reckless and he takes no responsability for them he just calls them city folk. What do you think would cause them to do this?? We called TIP and they pretty much shrugged it off. Would you confront them? and how? Best regards.

That is really sad to hear........

Personally, I would make sure that the local CO is fully briefed on the situation at hand and make sure that he will stop by and have a check and chat with the hunting party when they are up there. My guess would be that if they are that reckless, he might be able to find some violations that will correct their problems with a quickness!

Let the CO know as mentioned. Could they have run out of tags? Not an excuse, but possibly a reason for their stupidity.

Did you take any pictures? I would send your neighbors a "picture present" each season. That's terrible.

Thanks again. This same group placed a stand on our property within 6ft of a posted sign and fence with the posted sign facing away from the stand clearly showing it was our property. Last time I talked with the owner he said what am I supposed to do I have 8 guys here at camp hunting on 20 acres. I wanted to put that doe in the out house holding a newspaper, but then figured that would have pushed the limit. It still baffles me on why they left it and if they have 8 guys there you would think they could have tracked it within 30 yards of the stand and yes they had more then enough tags I think they only got 2 deer that they taged. I thought that maybe they shot it just before they left. Even though I dont particularly care for them I still would have been more than happy to help track it. Yes I took pictures if I can figure out how to load them on here I will. Some people dont have respect.

8 guys on 20 acres is way to crowded. 2 guys on 20 acres is crowded. Call the CO and make him do something about it. I would hunt somwhere else if my neighbor had 8 guys hunting 20 acres.

Lure, thats the problem, DONT try to figure out why they did it, they are a differnt type of "sportsman" Also, dont confront them, let the CO handle this, if nothing else buy an outdoor news or the likes of that and look at the back where they post what all the CO's are doing and you should be able to get a local CO's name.

Good luck

They own 20 and hunt state surrounding it and that is why they started pushing into our land. On one opening day we had one of them walk through the middle of our 40 acrs lost with no idea of where he was at or even what road his camp was on. Pretty sad.

I would say let the CO know about it but as you saw nothing will happen. I guess if you look at it in the laws eyes you found this deer dead a week after you thought it was shot. I guess if im a CO i look at it as a week later wouldnt the yotes have picked that thing apart pretty well? Plus you didnt see them do it and neither did the CO so its hard to prove anything. I would love to see people like that get caught but the thing is its hard to prove things so nothing ever gets done.

mrklean is dead on, there is no real evidence these guys did it, just a lot of assumptions. It could have been poached at any time by any trespasser who knows? Nothing will come of this, but the CO will most likely be glad to know he has a renegade group out there that he can watch out for.

Sounds like they shot the buck that came in after the doe was already dropped and they left the doe. I'd take a chian saw and cut the tree down while there in the stand next year, of course with a mask on.

If I were you I'd post the land tighter than normal and if you have to talk to these people say just for safety reasons and that you bought your land to have as undisturbed of a hunt as you can get. I have lots of the same issues going on and these guys have 1,000 private acres to hunt, they realize my land always seems to hold mature bucks as they are aware of the 21 bucks I've taken off the same stand, if my truck isn't there they drive my land out about every other day unless I'm around. The boot tracks in mud or snow don't lie and only 1 group can access my land. For the doe it's about the saddest story there is and maybe because of my empathy for the deer, maybe that's what they lack, an appreciation for being able to take our states most highly sought after animal. They must still be into the shooting phase, shoot,shoot shoot, is what they equate deer hunting to with little respect to the animals, deer hunting to them is just a weeklong event once a year, I feel for you having that circus to look, actually not look forward to each season.

Okay I'm laughing my head off about the chainsaw thing, but I'd have to say that would pretty much be a blueprint for how to get yourself shot in the woods by another deer hunter in one easy step!

Thanks on the chainsaw thing, Actually I just heard it from another hunter this past weekend. There's a 40-acre parcel accross from our land that's county public land and one of the guys I was talking too said He reported to the DNR of a permanant built stand in there two years ago and it's still there and the guy hunting in it is the same guy as last year and it's wrecking his hunt back there so he says. He said he's put two calls a day in to the the CO in the area, most times leaving messages of course, but he's yet to see a DNR person out there in two years now to do anything about it and he also discovered a very large corn bait pile with an actual feeder next to somebody elses stad next door on private land just adjacent that he's reported in to the DNR too, So he goes off saying "come muzzy" season in a few weeks if that stand is still up and that hunter is in it and the DNR hasn't done anything about this yet or the bait pile he's bringing out his chainsaw and cutting the tree's down hunter in it or not.

    • Where did you get your subfloor? How is it holding up? 
    •     thats what I have heard also..  I have put a tip up out on the lake and stay in my home, less than 200 feet, no issue...  could see it always...
    • The dump and run brings home the HJE trophy for the 60th anniversary of the race and on the 20th anniversary of the #3’s win of the race.   Any thoughts?   I’m only a part time fan these days but it seems like the move is totally acceptable these days.  Or is it just if you’re part of racing royalty?  20 years ago there woulda been a fight.   I will say I enjoyed the race and glad it was good since I’ve had to sit on my butt all day not feeling good.  Oh, and the Monster Energy marketing gals don’t suck. 
    • I would also look into using SIPS panels as an alternative to post framed. I have done a lot of projects using SIPS panels from a company called EPS in Iowa including the new fire station/ city hall in our town.    The cost of the panels is higher than the material cost of post framed but they are super insulated, go up fast and really cut down on outside noise. Our city has saved a significant amount of money in heat savings and you can even put in smaller btu HVAC which saves money. 
    • I always thought it was a visual issue. Not sure of the footage away but going house to house without seeing your lines might be a problem. I've wondered in the summer, casting a sucker off the dock and walking up to the cabin to get something if that was in wrong as well. 
    • 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
