      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 .

TEAM # 6 Trick'm N stick'm

Recommended Posts

Hey, lets get to know a little about each other and their experience, and get a team name figured out.

I will be hunting around Evansville/Lake Christina in zone 218 with my buddy APA who's on team 4.

I turky hunted last year with shotgun for the first time and had a blast. Had a couple opportunites, but they didn't turn out quite like I wanted, but that's hunting. It truly is an awesome sport. This year I didn't get drawn so I will be using the Hoyt to try and Arrow a Tom.

Heres a few team name suggestions, feel free to comment about them or add more to the list: Strut Soldiers, Tom Tumblers, Gobbler Getters, Thundergobbles, Trophy Tom Trumpers, Thunder Thumpers. I am Particular to Strut Soldiers, the rest I just threw out there.

ac777,

It looks like we have two archery hunters in the group. I will be hunting the last two seasons with my bow. We will have to wait for some others to chime in.

I will be hunting in either 227 or 236 unless something better comes up. It will be interesting to see how the properties are used that late in the season. Both have decent numbers of bird but also have hunting pressure on the property of very nearby.

Good Luck

Got to get out and practice my shooting from the blind.

Sorgy, got a quick guestion for you. Im guessing u must have a over the counter bow tag since u said ur hunting late season. Does that mean you can hunt more than one season and any area you want?

If I understand the Archery regs correctly I can hunt any zone that has over 50 tags available and the archery hunt is the last 2 timeperiods.

I have not purchased my tag yet but I am planning on it.

I went back and found the link

I'm going to bring both. I have a Season C tag for 425, i can use either and there is nothing in the rules about not having both. So i'm going bring my bow and gun. So it depends on how close i let him get.

Yep your right about the 50+ only for archery. so since your hunting around redwood in 425 your ok. Which season is everyone going?

After seventeen years, there are two things i've found to be ture every single year. 1. the excitment never changes and 2. the five day seasons are never enough. So I'm headed down to Kasnsas for four days on april 16-19, then its a short minnesota season april 25-26 then Nebreaska may 9-11. I love turkey hunting. The fiancee says to much but o well.

Sounds like you are going to have some fun. I thought about going to SD this year but I don't think I will be able to do it. I need to get in with a couple guys I know and just go. Maybe next year. Anyone else have multiple bird chances?

    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.
