      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 .

Camp Ripley archery hunt

Recommended Posts

I'm in! I think that this is my 4th year going (not consectutive)but I havn't arrowed any type of deer. Is this bad luck or is it common? I've seen nice bucks and had opportunity to shoot does but...

Are there any good secrets out there without saying too much?!

Mainly I like going there just for the chance to see a monster (in the woods or at weigh-ins). I hunt a WMA in the northeast metro and don't get many chances to see any deer, so I always look forward to Ripley.

Don't feel too bad. The record harvest (2008 first season) boasted only a 15% success rate including does and fawns.

I been there at least 4 times myself and have not tagged a buck but still consider it a darn good chance to do that. It may have something to do with missing a 22 yard shot at a massive 8 pointer though.... whistle

The biggest buck I have ever seen hunting came under my stand at ripley. I got buck fever so bad I almost fell out of my stand. I could not tell you how many points but it was over 12 and under 20 and the thing was just wide across the shoulders. I heard it coming through the woods and was all ready to shoot but I just looked at it because I could not believe the size of this monster. I am sure he is dead but there are some of his offspring's roaming around.
