      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 .

You need to scout, scout and scout some more.

Then get your Plat Book and find out who owns the fields.

Contact them and try to get permission.

Early season geese will be in cut sweetcorn fields, Hay fields, and cut oat fields.

Or you can hunt them on the water.

I would guess you will run into difficulty scouting on the internet.

Good luck finding land in Surburne, Wright, Hennipen, and Carver counties. You need to know people really well or have lots of $$$$. A sweet corn field in the Monticello area went for $500 a day and it was leased everyday for the whole early season.

you can't be serious. you just want someone to do all the leg work for you and show up with your gun and have geese landing at your feet. Get out there and put some miles on thats the only way to get it done

That sweet corn field you are talking about it lease by a guide service and i know he will make that money back. I have no problem getting fields in wright and sherburn county.

My best advice is be friendly to the farmers when asking permission and offer to help them out if they need it. It's the little things that count with these guys.
