      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 .

DOVE SEASON

Recommended Posts

I enjoy dove hunting and wondering how many of you have gotten into dove hunting and what your experiences have been.

I have never been able to get on a good field until last year. Well, last year two buddies brought me with to hunt with them over their spinning wing decoys. The doves were acting like the decoys had suction power. With three of us shooting over the decoys, it just didn't seem very sporting to me. So I walked to the other side of the field and shot a few birds on their natural route flying. THAT was a challenge, and I enjoyed it. My buddies kinda laughed at me when I had 4 birds, and they had their limits, but for me it wasn't enjoyable to just pile up the birds with three people shooting over the decoys. To each their own, though.

I hope to make it out a couple of times this fall dove hunting. It is a great warm-up for ducks and pheasants.

I had fun last season dove opener. It was my pups first "real" hunt and he retrieved 8 doves for me. A little warm still in early September, but it was a blast and a great way to kick off the season.

Some of us were hunting early season goose last year and the field we were in was just loaded with doves. After the morning hunt we went and got some lead and my mojo dove decoys and had a fun 1.5 hour shoot. We got 21 between the three of us. I went back out the next day and got my limit in about 2 hours or so. Went out another evening and got a few more. Should have went back there a few more times, it was a great spot.

The morning I got my limit was close to as much fun as I've ever had hunting. They are awesome to eat. A slice of jalapeno, roll them up in bacon and grill. We also breaded and deep fried a few. Either way they tased great.
