      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Broke in the new AR this morning!

Recommended Posts

My youngest and I headed out early this morning to make a few sets and we're fortunate to bring another one home.

1st set: Same property Mitch shot his on a couple days ago. Nothing.

2nd set: Hunted are best spot from last year. We set up on the East side of a bean field with the road to the North and an abandoned farm house to our East and our back.

I put the decoy and caller out 30 yards SE of us. I started with distress sounds for 3 sets and then did 2 sets of female howls and then just sat there or a bit. Mits next to me on my left. He says there's one out front behind the decoy and I see her trotting North out a ways. I whistled her to a stop, put the crosshair behind her shoulder, touched one off and down she went.

185 yards. Nice looking female.



3rd set: Saw one at about 250 yards but it just cruised by and never stopped for a shot.

4th set: Nothing

Looks like this might be the last night for a while unless the snow holds off.

Nice, wondering when you were going put a notch on the AR. You did a nice job with that gun. Thanks for reporting.

Way to go Rob. I saw 8 coyote last weekend between St. Croix and Deer Lake I think it is probably 4-6 mile area. My daughter had a basketball tourny in the underwear capital of Wisc. BLOOMER! We saw 3 at about 7:00am on the way there and and 5 at about 5:30 on the way back. Kind of interesting though we never saw any deer at all in the fields but 1 dead buck on the road I thought it was kind of odd.

Nice looking AR! I just picked up a new one myself the other day but mine is more of a tactical M4 style AR but I'll be using it for yotes this year once I get some of the white wrap to put on it.

    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
