      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 .

I'm letting the cat out of the bag because they raised their tag price

Recommended Posts

winnebago indian reservation Raised Their Tag Prices.

Missouri bluff forest with untouched 4' dia oaks. Miles of open forest, mainly merriam/eastern hybreds. The most beautiful woods I've ever seen. I hunted there with the HS crew in 98. Literally 100s of birds on any given ridge. Nice white/buff tails. Find Souix Falls and Souix city and connect at a 90. You can camp anywhere and there is more birds than I've ever heard in my whole life. I may regret this but I'm true to my fellow MNs. Was 2 bird tag then, who knows now. Have fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! $160? 2 yrs ago. -fun fun fun -JD

The Winnebego Indian Res has been raising prices long before your '98 hunt with the HS crew. The first tag I bought was 10.00 and there were only 25 issued (late 80's); now that was awesome. After that first year there has been a steady increase in price and tags issued as well as two seasons; the first starting mid February ending mid April, the second beginning mid April ending mid May. The last I heard there were offering two season's and 75 tags per season (one tom limit)all first season licenses were a draw, second season tags were usually available over the counter. Intresting that you had 2 bird tags maybe it was a special deal the Res made with HS to film and advertise your hunts? I know the Drury's were there one year I hunted and they were allowed to hunt and film a couple days early. They (the Winnebego Indian Res) are their own nation after all and make up their own season's, limits, no of tags and prices. There is also the Santee Indian Reservation just to the south of Winnebego that offers turkey hunts as well. Historically the Santee sells less tags and are generally lower in price (thus harder to draw). None the less it is true both Reservations offer great turkey and deer hunting.

I lived in Sioux city until 3 years ago and had the pleasure of hunting winnebago and omaha (macy nebraska) reservations and you will never hunt a better place and hears so many different birds.They started with merriams and now have hybrids.I used to be good friends with tribal game warden John Earth (now deceased and things have changed.Tags started at $10.00 and have gone crazy.We used buy 5 to 10 tags a year, boy was it fun.If anyone needs info where to hunt I can help,I hunted ther for 20 years and have harvested over 40 birds there.

What? The powerball?!?!? Ouch, geez things down here just keep getting better and better. No more having to go down to Mondamin Iowa as there are turk's all over the place along the river up to and past Sioux City. Not to mention a major population explosion at the family farm by Jackson Ne. There a person can buy up to three spring tags over the counter no draw. Well atleast you've got excellent fishing to fall back on, there's always a trade off or so it seem's. Take care and tell Terry hello the next time you talk to him. Kevin.

spitn, can a out of state person buy 3 tags over the counter? Do you know the cost for out of state Lic, are? So when do we go to the Farm! grin Leech~~

Yes a resident or non resident (which I am) can buy up to three tags this spring. For me a non resident it's 100.00 per tag so I don't think I will buy three.

While I would like to take freinds to the farm it's not rellay that big and we have a lot of uncles nephews and nieces that hunt it, so we must keep it a family only hunt. Kevin.

    • Lotsa rib comps do that for overnites low 'n slow, if they're doing briquettes. Always worked for me.
    • What does use the minion method mean?
    • Folks  use the minion method in smokers with no issues.
    • I agree. Don't use kingsford unless you put it in after it has turned all white. There are chemicals on it to make it light easier. 
    • I saved about $200 by picking up a used one.  It was a clean unit, just a couple minor scratches on the side.  It's been flawless. I knew what I was looking for and when I found it I was there within hours.  That is the game when you're looking to save money on those generators. I've never seen a retail sale on them worth going out of the way for.  
    • Just make sure you get it going good first without fluid or make sure the fluid is burned off.   I tried charcoal in my electric smoker once and didn't get the fluid burned off enough before I put the snack sticks in and the taste of the lighter fluid soaked into the casing pretty good and rendered it inedible. 
    • Nah, not but hurt at all.  
    • Welcome to the forum.  Could you give us a little more details on what you would be jigging for in the Philippines? 
    • RRmawi, Welcome to the forums.  I don't have one and by no replies it looks like not many others do as well? Sounds like you mite have some corrosion or wear happening in the connections and controllers.  Did you try replacing the batteries in the remote already? You could try some dielectric grease on all the connections to see if it's a contact issue. Or some Electicric contact spray on the switch's.  If you got some water in the motor from a leaking seal that could also affect the current flow through the system as well. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done and back out on the lake is nice. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
