      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 .

Never owned an ATV-Help

Recommended Posts

I haven't ever owned an ATV. I have a neighbor that has one in the garage she wants to get rid of. It's a 2000 Polaris Sportsman 500 Remington Addition. I hunt down by Rochester that has steep hills and slick soil when it gets wet. I would like to have something that would be able to make it up those hills normally as well as dragging deer up them. Would this ATV do the job?

Is there any problems that were associated with this ATV?

Also, neither of us have any idea what a fair value for it would be?

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe that was a pretty solid machine. I have a buddy that just bought a 2000 Po-Po and loves it!!! for what you're looking to use it for, I'd see no problems with it!1

I ran a 99 Magnum Dad still has his 99 both ere great rigs. We used them out west elk hunting at high altitudes and no issues hauling 2 quartered elk. When I get another it will be another 500 Polaris.

I also have a neighbor (widow) who has a 2000 SP500 in the garage with only 380 miles on it. Not a Remington Addition though. Not sure they had that until a mid year model release (2000 1/2) when they offered the 500 in the H.O.

Fair market value depends on actual condition and miles on the machine. Seasonality will make a big difference. Closer to ice fishing season, a person could get a premium out of them.

Knowing the machine I mentioned above, it would be able to fetch $2800-3000 based on the condition.

Do you know the history of its prior use? My main concern, would be how it was prepped if has been stored for a long time. Sitting a long while without being properly prepped can open up a big ol' can of worms including engine and drive train components.

the 500 should have more than enough power for what you will use it for. There is a site where you can get prices, think it is (nada) goggle it or just stop by your bank.

    • I actually cooked the heart from my dads deer this year. First time I ever had it and it won't be the last. I thought it was darn delicious.
    • The roaster method actually worked pretty well to finish the sausage.  Typically when i would try to finish in the smoker and at times in the oven i would get hot spots where part of the sausage would get burnt or dried out and other spots were not up to temp.  With the water bath all of the sausage is at the same temperature so it is a more consistent product.  I found that i needed to keep the dial on the roaster around 375 to maintain the water temp at 160 ish.  Summer sausage with hi temp pepper jack cheese.
    • The missing one that people usually put up when they post a food thread. To show if the Gloop they are posting a recipe for is worth reproducing. Looks like you already have it in a garbage bag so.......     That picture!
    • never stopped.
    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
