      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 .

In the article it said the DNR was still taking bids on who would be doing the auction. I doubt anything will be set until that is settled.

i wonder how public they will make it, from reading it doesnt sound like the advertised becaues if a guy bought a $1000 gun for 300 must have not been to many people there

I went to the WI DNR auction in SPooner WI in the late 80's. Tons of long guns. Most of the confiscated guns came from poachers etc so the majority were master mag .22 sold by Coast to Coast hardware and Mossberg pump shotguns. Most had never been oiled and had seen serious use or been thrown out of a moving vehicle. There were some nice deer rifles also but people were trying to buy there own gun back and paid more than retail for them. I never placed a bid on a gun. I did bid on some tip ups but they also went for way more than retail. Oh well. Maybe MN DNR guns are different but I think it would be the same.

You got that right. There will be a ton of people. But considering where the state's budget is at, I say bid them up. In past years, attendance was so bad, the crooks came back and bought their guns back for 1/2 of what they paid for them!

Looks like the Rem 870 and the S&W 3000 are the poacher specials. Lots of low end guns on that list. A few nice rifle/scope setups on there but mostly low end rigs.

I also like the muzzle loaders listed with scopes on them. I wonder if that's what they got pinched for or if they were using them during regular firearms season.

I'm sure it will packed with how well advertised it is. I've gone to the BCA auction a couple of times as a buyer for a dealer. Used to be good deals, now they bring in more buyers and the stuff sells pretty much for what it should used retail.

On the bright side the DNR will get some money back out of this rather than having a fire sale where they miss out on potential money. Now what they do with the money is a different story, hopefully it doesn't go into salamander research.

If anyone goes let us know how it was. If your looking for an 870 or a 3000 you might be able to get one cheap.

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
