      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.

Like I said earlier it is great turkey hunting. It would be interesting to know how many birds have been taken so far this year and how many tags have been sold. Anyone know? Pier or Borch?

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.

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.

    • This isn't my patio but its very close to what I have. I think sandblasting would likely ruin the texture and pattern.  I'd also have to reapply a clear sealer after sandblasting and the sealer is what makes it slippery. 
    • This just occurred to me....  I have no idea if it would work..   Could it be sandblasted to roughen the surface and give more grip?         
    • I've seen a lot of options for things you can mix into the sealer before you roll it on.  I may start out going that route since I already have the sealer and the additives are cheap.  I've got a non visible area I can use as a test patch to see how it works.  I don't necessarily need it to be equal to a broomed concrete I'll settle for at least non-deadly.    Hopefully i can figure out something, my wife hates how slippery it is and is threatening to have it all torn out (the really expensive option). 
    • That is the drawback to stamped concrete.  Contractors that I have worked with, always ask, are you sure you want to do this, it will be slick.  The contractors add silica sand to the sealer.  IDK if they mix the sand with the sealer prior to application or after and roll it in.  It helps, but not a grippy as broomed concrete.  
    • I bought a new house last summer and it has a good sized stamped concrete patio off of the deck in the backyard.  It looks great and we use it a lot but the problem is that is very slippery when wet.  This winter it was like an ice rink when it had a little snow on it and in the summer its really slick when it rains or if the kids run on it with bare feet after playing in the sprinkler or pool.    I'm looking for solutions to reduce how slippery it is.  I've seen additives that I can add to the clear sealer that the old homeowner left for me (the cheap solution).  I've also see a product called Deck o Grip (the more expensive option) that looks to be a clear sealer that acts like a thin flexible rubber surface to prevent slips.  My concern with additives is that I don't want it to feel too rough on bare feet.  Most of the additives indicate you won't notice much but I'm wonder if that is true and if you don't notice anything does it really reduce slips that much?    Does anyone have experience with sealers for stamped concrete that aren't so dang slippery?
    • Every bird is around now except for a turkey. I heard them as the sun came up but I know they went to that field again. I am going to stick it out and see if I can get one to come over in a while.
    • Yep, a lot of things have to go right, right in a row, to get one with the bow.  Good luck!
    • Sat on a different property yesterday morning. With the recent snow melt I can finally drive close to it. I sat until 11:00. Had gobbling near me most of the morning. Finally about 9:00  4 jakes and a hen came out to the field followed by 2 large Toms and another hen. The jakes came cruising in to me dekes. Got as close as 7 yards but the big Toms kept there distance. I don't think they liked my strutter decoy. It is one that spins and the tail raises/lowers. Might be a bit to aggressive for this early season. They eventually walked off with the hen following them., never getting closer then 75 yards. Depending on this rain I might get out this evening/otherwise will have to wait until Friday/Saturday morning with my son...
    • I hear you! Tough luck!
