      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.

    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
    • Smurf hope all goes well with the pooch. Definitely tough to see them as they age my 9 year old lab is getting pretty greyfaced. Started looking for another up and comer to start the training process again . 
    • Green lake Spicer if ice is off. The governer's opener this year will be in the Willmar area. 
    • Fibertech productions replica's Brainerd. Have a walleye done by them excellent work!
    • Was wondering if anybody has a fiberglass mount of a Largemouth that they would like to post pics of? It's now been 15 years since I caught my biggest bass (22 1/4"), and I've come to the conclusion that I will probably not top it. So I'm interested in finally putting one up on the wall.   I'm guessing I would probably go with Artistic Anglers, but would love to hear if anybody has any other suggestions. Thanks!
    • Has there been any announcements what the governor will be doing for fishing opener yet? Does he still honor the tradition but head to the southern part of the state?
    • We need warm windy days to get things really going.  I'm guessing the in-laws lake 20 minutes north of Deer River will still have ice floating around on opener.    On this day in 2010 I had already returned from a Bdub canoeing and camping trip. That year and this year seem to be two extremes.  
    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
