      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 .

Very cool.

I called this bull in the week before he was shot with my wife and daughter. We went on a camping trip just to watch some elk. Darkness was falling, and I thought at the time it was a 6 x 7, but there is no mistaking those lovely ivory tips and dark main beams. He definatly was the herd bull and he ment business.

I got drawn last year. Only 6 tags were issued that year and they were all cow tags. I had a 7 x 7 bull, sixty yards broadside. Wish I had a bull tag at that moment. Fifteen minutes later I shot my cow. It was an awesome hunt that I got to share with my dad. I encourage all to apply.

Probably about a 50/50 mix in the Grygla area. When I had my bull tag in 2005, they were almost 100 percent on public, about 2.5 miles east of where this bull was taken.

Problem was that it was .5 to 1.5 miles outside the hunt boundary.

I was on private land when I called this bull in, but he came out of public land, and I was backed right up to public land where I was calling.

There is a lot of private land around Grygla and there is public here and there with some big lands of public so I'm guessing the elk travel both. I have seen most of the elk feeding on private that has wood lots nearby, yet to see a bull though.

I haven't checked where the boundaries are so I would trust what Gissert said.

In the area where the elk tend to hang, the mix is about 50/50. The core area is actually pretty small, maybe 6 sections where they spend most of their time.

They can, and do wander quite a bit farther on some occasions.

Ok.. so lets say a guy happens to be lucky enough to draw an elk tag. Are the land owners pretty decent about giving permission to hunt them??? Or are you better off hunting the public??? Thanks

I was not refused by any landowners. I did my homework, called previous tag holders, and got plat books. I also called the DNR at Thief Lake, and they gave me some excellent advice.

I made a few trips, and introduced myself and expressed my gratitude PRIOR to the hunt.

After the hunt, EVERYONE who granted me permission got a thank you note, even if I never hunted their place.

I was able to make some lasting friends as a result of this.

This was a September bull hunt. Things might be a bit tougher on a late cow hunt with black powder season still in play.

I shot mine in December of last year with the muzzleloader season still happening. I had no problem getting permission for the private land. Just have to talk to the land owners and they are pretty willing to let the elk hunters hunt.

    • I'm a little nervous to watch the game.  My 4 year old daughter has taken an interesting in "the purple team" as she calls them and she's looking forward to watching the game with me this weekend.  I'm not sure I can keep my language clean enough for 4 year old ears if the vikings live up to their reputation.  If they win I'm sure I'll scare her when I jump off the couch and run around the house screaming.  
    •   Well, I don't have that kind of time in the morning so pan fried will have to do.
    • like that stuff better off the grill....
    • The Vikings have to win.  I can't imagine having to deal with the Eagle fans who will be here for the Super Bowl if they win.   The Eagles/Falcons game last week was pretty sloppy.  Neither team looked great.  I know the Eagles regular season record is impressive, but look at their schedule/results this year.  The win against the Panthers in week 6 is a good win and the week 14 win on the road against the Rams is impressive.  The rest of their schedule was horrible.   1 Sep 10 PHI 30 @ WAS 17 2 Sep 17 PHI 20 @ KC 27 3 Sep 24 NYG 24 @ PHI 27 4 Oct 01 PHI 26 @ LAC 24 5 Oct 08 ARI 7 @ PHI 34 6 Oct 12 PHI 28 @ CAR 23 7 Oct 23 WAS 24 @ PHI 34 8 Oct 29 SF 10 @ PHI 33 9 Nov 05 DEN 23 @ PHI 51 10 Bye 11 Nov 19 PHI 37 @ DAL 9 12 Nov 26 CHI 3 @ PHI 31 13 Dec 03 PHI 10 @ SEA 24 14 Dec 10 PHI 43 @ LA 35 15 Dec 17 PHI 34 @ NYG 29 16 Dec 25 OAK 10 @ PHI 19 17 Dec 31 DAL 6 @ PHI 0      
    •   I picked the wrong month to take a break from drinking.  
    • I decided to have the breakfast of champions this morning.....  
    • google Food VacBags. almost missed your post.  remember to type @ in front   of user name and then that person gets a notification. @Grainbelt    I just got another order. love them! 
    • Eyeguy, You posted a great place to get vacuum seal bags. I bought from there and was pretty happy with them. I need more but can't remember the online business name. Could you please remind me?
    • With technology now you can just drop it in the hopper and either watch it later if they win or delete it if things go south.
