      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've seen a lot of birds in the afternoon and early evening. It'd be hard to compare statistics before and after the mid day closure being that the number of hunters has gone up so much in the past 25 years.

I think as the sun get close to the treetops on the horizon, they head back to the roost. But otherwise, they are pretty active, especially if its warm.

It won't be dark at sunset. But birds will definitely be thinking about roosting. I saw a pile of toms last night around that time.

glenn driving to and from my jobs mostly in the afternoon then home in the evenings I have seen a lot of birds they were mostly in the feilds. monday about an hour before sunset I saw 25 birds in a disced up corn field and there was 5 gobblers struttin there stuff. a couple of days earlier I noticed only three birds in the same field only one tom. so its not out of the question to see birds in the afternoon just gotta be were they are.

We've had great luck hunting the evenings, in our area we know where they roost so we go in there about 3 hours before sunset and just wait it out, let out a few yelps about every 30 minutes, it's worked 3 years in a row, in fact tonight my son got one with a 10 inch beard and 22lbs, he really put on quite a show strutting around.
