      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 .

Recommended Posts

Im looking for this magazine ? Have any of you ever read the article publised in a magazine about two brothers up in canada along time ago that got on horse back would find a deer track and trail it till they found the deer. The article stated that if they even ever seen a deer it was luck. Anyway they followed this track eventuallly it led them to this huge buck he shot it with a 44-40 lever action or some odd caliber. The deer rack was so big it wouldnt fit in a 32' door.They tried to mearsure it based off his arm length and said it could be the record. Someone took for him to a taxidermist and never got it back. Id love to find that article again the picture looked to be back in the 30s and I read the magazine about 10 to 15 years ago it was kind of a odd magazine.thanks

Sounds like you are describing the story of the Jim Jordan Buck, the former world record before Milo Hanson came along. Jordan shot the buck in 1914 in Danbury, WI using a .25-35 caliber rifle. He brought the rack to a taxidermy and never saw it again for 60 years. Somehow, it turned up at a rummage sale in Sandstone, MN and was bought (incredibly) by a family member of Jim Jordan! Here's a link to the story for more details:

sounds like a combination of the jordan buck and the breen buck do a search of both names and you'll get the stories

I was reading a story of this group of brothers in Canada, I think Canada, and they do the same thing. Pick up tracks, decide which to follow and pursue it all day. Their names are the Benoit Brothers, not related to the wrestler, there is a book or two written about them.

Ive done some checking and none of these stories are the same as the one im looking for. But the jordan story is good. The story Im looking for had a picture of the two brothers the guy holding the deer was tall and skiny and I think he had a old rold cigarette hanging out of his mouth. This story im looking for is as good or better than the jordan story. Any advice would be appreciated thanks

    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...
