      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 .

Recommended Posts

I want to get started Dove hunting. Which area of North Dakota would be a good place to start. What time of the month would give me the best opertunities for resident and migratory doves?

Thanks for the Help!

Hi Jim,

It's been a while since I hunted doves in ND, having moved out of state and all for about the past 9 years. But in my time growing up there, it was my experience that doves could be found in pretty good #s all across the state. You can't beat the central part of the state in my opinion. Anywhere from the ND/Canadian border to the ND/SD border along US 81 is prime dove country.

I grew up in eastern ND and hunted doves in that area as well as north central area and always did well. Look for sunflower fields as they are thick around them.

Good advice.....we always hunted near flowers.Also near watering holes in the evening or late morning.You can also walk them up by walking shelter belts.

The toughest bird alive to hit consistently.

One thing I just remembered about Doves. If you can find a cut Canola field, with water not too far off, you have found a goldmine for doves. If you can get a landowner's permission to walk between the swaths, you should have no problem limiting out, even if you don't shoot all that straight. They love canola, and it is an ideal place for them to hide because they sit right under the swaths. The stuff is not fun to walk because the seeds easily get in your shoes/boots, but you can walk a field back and forth all afternoon and be presented with 20-yard shots. In my experiences the doves would just flood right back into the fields after we scared them up (that is if we missed, which happened a lot also)!

Good Luck
