      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 .

Nocturnal bear

Recommended Posts

So i'm sure many of you fellow bear hunters have had this problem....I only have 1 bear coming in to the site and he/she either comes to the bait site at 10pm-midnight or 4-6am. So what are so of the tricks to get'em in during shooting hours?

If you live close to your bait area and are able to do this, it works well. Put your baits out in a.m. and pull all but just a little in the late afternoon.

Are you baiting every day? when we bait we try to keep everything consistant and bait enough to last sevral days so we dont need to check the baits every day. we would bait every other day with decent luck at are baits now we bait every fourth day and are activety increased ten fold at least thats what it seems with the amount of trail cam pics we are getting

The bear on my site went from 8 pm to mid nightfor the last week, so I decided to bait in the morning to change his habit an not as much bait, fist time was Sat. an I baited 8 am an het hit saturday night at 9 pm. Goddy it might work, then sunday morning 7 am an he hit sunday night at 8 20, YES! so this mourn I was out there to bait an check camera, I revied the picts on the way to work an like I said he hit Sunday night at 8:20 but he also hit at 605 this morning an the last pict of him was at 6:11 an the nesxt pixt was me at 6:22. I bumped him of the pile. Hope I did'nt push him nocturnal again. So try to bait in the morning an not so much. I've tried those sticks an I prefer a bacon burn to those. If you can get your hands on some bear scat from a different area an scatter that around you site that will pi ss him off enought to come in early to see who the intruder is. I nothing else do a really good bacon burn mid afternoon. Good luck guys, Boar
