      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 .

The less I come on here the faster the season comes. We have 5 sites this year total for 2 guys. My buddy got one last year and this year I get first shot. He just got his rug back Sat. and it looks sweet!!! Tried a new burn a couple days ago and smelt really good and sweet. Will try that if nothing else works. Couple of our spots had good sign (scat). So we will see what happens.

I can't wait! One week to go! It never fails though. It has been cool all year and now that baiting is about to start, they are saying that it is going to get much warmer. Oh well. It is always worth the heat and the bugs.

how much bait do you guys put out at one site and do you check 2 or 3 time a week. Thanks Adam

Start out with a decent amount, enough to get them to start coming in. I don't know...100 lbs at the most, less if you have close access. Once your bait starts getting hit then start putting less and less out there to create competition for the bait. I would check 3 times a week if possible. Check every couple of days

Everyday,and enough to get a good boar to claim the site.

Not one to use the same stuff everyone else toss's out or for putting less and less if you have competition around.

Like seeing all the corn in the scat at my baits since I don't toss corn I know they are not feeding enough elsewhere. Once they start marking trees I know its time to drop a trail cam.

I have pics of multiple bears at a bait all at once during shooting hours.That ends once a good boar stakes claim tho.If you bait regularly same time, he will listen for you to leave and saunter in.

IF your in a good area nature seems to provide all the assistance you need....

Wednesday can't get here quick enough. I wish my clients would pick their mounts up TODAY......

Area 51 on here. We went a up a few weeks ago and the sign is amazing. My party is hunting with a couple rookies this year and it is very exciting. It is pretty cool to see newbies get really pumped. I sure hope they know what kind of work is coming their way. Good luck to everyone out there!

    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
    • any rub on it??   I got to try this!!
    • Picked up a new to me sled with only a 122 miles on it!  It's the same sled I already have Arctic Cat Panther 570 fan, which I will only use since I ice fish more then trail ride. Things in perfect shape the guy used it like 4 times with his family and has 120 compression on both sides and is Mint!  Not as pretty as the old Black and red one which has 3165 miles on it but just to nice to pass up. Old ones going on C/list now. 
    • I've got a small one waiting. Just trying to find time when I and the smoker will be in the same spot for enough hours! I have a good feeling that the week after Deer Hunting closes and Ice forms. The smoker will be doing a lot of catch up!!!
    • I wouldn't even bother going to NoDak before Nov 1. Too many yahoos. There's still plenty of guys up there later, but at least most of them are legitimate hunters
    • You can get longer but at a premium, and I'm not a huge fan because of the different firmness from back to bottom along with the groove makes sleeping awkward.  You could make one easy enough or modify a futon.  Find a used one and gut the hardware out to make your own that will blend in better.
    • $4.59/lb not sure how good or bad that is. But I am more intrigued by size and experiment with that rather than a full packer.
