      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 .

I was wondering if there is anyone in the Ames area that might have some land that they would let me hunt phesants on this fall. Im a freshman (aka poor college kid) so I dont have much to offerer in terms of money, but I would be more than willing to do some work for you on the weekend.

There is a lot of state land about 2 hours north of ames around Mason City. It is Iowa, if you knock on a few doors and are polite, you will find some farmers willing to give you access. Have you bought your out of state license? 110 bucks for the small game license and 12 bucks for the habitat fee. You will be a lot poorer after that small purchase. Good luck at ISU, 2 of the greatest concerts I have ever seen were at ISU.

you should be able to get a resident license here in iowa now that you are going to school here. I have two buddies that go to waldorf in forest city they are from minnesota and they are able to get bow tags for deer and hunting licenses. You should be able to also. And i would take advantage of getting deer tags while you are at school becuase you will be considered a resident.
