      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 .

Refuge Deer

Recommended Posts

Do any of you guys have any experience with the Refuge Deer hunt? I have hunted West River and the Hills and I can't get enough and I would like to try Sand Lake in December. Does anyone have some knowledge they can share?

I haven't hunted Sand Lake deer but I know several guys that have. The problem seems to be snow up to your hips and rushes eight feet tall. I would think it would be good hunting if you can find the right place to hunt. Lots of deer, but lots of hunters also. It's just not for an old geezer like me. wink

So it sounds like a physical type hunt, I am fine with that if the deer are good sized. Do you know if it is mostly a spot and stalk type thing, still hunting or stand hunting? I have not seen the type of terrain but I expect some type of cattails and hope the deer leave those to go eat before dark.

Lots of area that is cattails and water, but there are also fields and tree claims. If I were to hunt the refuge I would try to find a place to get in cover. I think there are plenty of people walking to keep deer moving, but it can also push them deeper into cover. I talked to a couple of people that shot deer and couldn't retrieve them because they swam across water which was about eight feet deep.
