      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 and Goose decoys in same set?

Recommended Posts

Do you think having a few Goose Decoys in or on the side of your Duck decoy set, is bad for one or the other? Do you see less duck's with goose in the set, or less goose with ducks in the set? Or no diff, at all?

Geese and mallys/puddlers, no prob

Geese and divers, not so well, Ive ran all 3 2gether and it still worked somewhat but look at nature, best teacher, mallys and geese are always sharing water or fields and divers seem to stay in the middle of large bodies of water away from all other birds, sometimes divded by spieces even.

Thanks for all the ideas. I have been setting them off to one side a good 10-20 feet off the ducks. Where I have been hunting has a good flock of resident geese but I just can't seem to bring them in? So wasn't sure if I should just lose the ducks or geese out of the set and go for one or the other?

I usually put a small group 10-30 yards off to the side, cruising towards the mallards. However, I was planning on doing some experimenting this year. Nice suggestions.

i use 6 floater mixed in with a dozen mallards and every species of duck around here at least takes a look. and usually sit by the geese

i do the same and have had the same results. i put goose decoys (about 8) off the side of my duck spread on the water and have had ducks land in the goose decoys more than the duck decoys? idk but if the spread is set up right it works out good anyway....

for ducks i make a dense bunch of deks in a line 10 yards from the blind and they usually land in that 10 yards. what do you think bout tossing some ducks in for early goose?

Mallards love canadas, IMO you dont even need duck decoys just a duck call...

i might have to try that.

Do you think some CO may have any issues with that? Kind of like Fishing when a season is close. Huum? confused

eh? I would think he'll give it a try when duck season starts... but yeah it works for me, especially in fields. They get thick during the early goose.

Yeah ducks love the geese in the field, they've been all over us this early season. Throw a couple spinners out come Sept 26 and we'll be shooting limits before the geese even fly. Not much experience on water though...
