      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 .

Would like information from the Alexandria area.

Recommended Posts

I was just curious if many have been seeing or hearing coyotes and fox in the immediate area. If anyone has problems with the overpopulation of these predators on their land go ahead and shoot me an email to cwellefson@gmail.com and we will do our best (2 guys) to take care of them. We do not use dogs, it is mostly calling, and some sit and stalk, we are very responsible and check in before and after each hunt.

Thank you

Hi Tanner,

I was wondering if it is alright for my buddy to tag along with you and I. He is more of the caller. If this is possible then I would say it is a go as far as hooking up sometime.

if you come up here you should get here before christmas. theres a group of 15-20 guy that surround a section and drive it with people and dogs and run the coyotes out and the standers on the gravel roads blast the heck out of them. they claim they got around 150 of them last year by osakis. i'm sure its an exageration but its their style of hunting, it makes it hard for guys like me who try to call them in. theres also another large group by parkers prarie who hunt the same way. both groups usually start about christmas or when theres snow.

Yep, I have heard of the Osakis boys! Also heard they trespass quite often. Some farmers in the area (specifically by the Forada swamp) said they are going to keep a keen eye out this year and turn them in if they or their dogs step foot on their land! It makes it alot more difficult for the real sportsmen to get out and get a coyote when they are all educated the easy way. Doesn't take a whole lot for them to let their dogs out to push the whole section, (whether they have permission on certaqin parcels of land or not) and have a coyote run their way while posted on the road or legally in the ditch. I have seen them in action from a distance. Hopefully if there is one of the Osakis boys reading this, they take fair warning about people watching them, including myself. Not to mention the local game warden has been notified of their wrongdoings.

Now it's making sense,that used to be a good area to hunt.Bummer is, it makes it that much harder for respectable hunters to gain permission.

Exactly the situation I have run into. All it takes is one bad scenerio to take place.

I am not TRYING to point fingers but those who do it "sometimes illegally" are the ones who can ruin it for all of us.

Still a motherlode of yotes around LQP and Dawson areas. I suppose you are too good to hunt down there anymore.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
