      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 .

duck hunting in ND....I heard the farmers are very nice, is this true?

Recommended Posts

My dads buddy said when he hunts out in ND, he will drive and scout for a while. When he finds a field he likes, more often than not the farmers have no problem letting him hunt. Is this true? I am hoping to plan a trip this year. Also is there quite a bit of public land? Thanks for any replies

Depends on the area. Anything within 20 miles of Devil's Lake is locked up pretty tight. We head about 65 miles away from DL, and never have a problem finding hunting land. When we find posted stuff that looks good, most of the time the farmers tells us he posts it to keep guys off during deer season. They seem more than happy to let you whack all the ducks you want.

as long as the farmers dont have others on their fields or had a bad expierence with a group of hunters and you are away from a bigger city you usually wont have problems getting the land and i reccomend not going to ask during dinner or lunch time

Just dont tell them your from a big town and be nice and you should be fine!! There are some spots around Devils Lake and in SE parts of ND but for the most part you have 99% percent of land that is open for you!!! Good luck, what parts are you gonna hunt???

My dads buddy usually calls and gives reports on the migration. I have yet to make it out there though. He just made it sound a little too good to be true, as far as farmer permission. Any areas you would suggest?

anywhere in north dakota can have good hunting at the right time of year. thats the best part of making a trip up there. simply pick a general area that has lodging, food, and gas nearby, decent water, a mix of cropland, roosts, and maybe sprinkle in some public land if you cant find a good field shoot, and call it a trip!

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
