      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 .

bear hunting guide

Recommended Posts

I am planning a bear hunt for either the 2013 or 2014 season. I will be going through a guide as I know pretty much nothing about bear hunting. I also do not believe I would have the time to attend my bait stations as one would need to so the outfitter plan seems to fit. Anyway as far as guides go I would like to hear from you as far as what to look for or ask the outfitter based on your experiences. I will be using archery equipment. I would also like to ask for recommendations based on your own personal experiences. Lastly I should mention that I will be based out of the lake vermilion area. Not sure how many outfitters are in the area with exception of Udovichs guide service up in the Orr area which I have heard some good things about.

Thank you in advance for your responses.

I would ask for references and call them. Does the outfitter provide trail cam pics of the bear or bears hitting your bait site? Do they have active back up bait site if you would like to move (with pics)? Some outfitters consider a wounded bear a dead bear and that ends your hunt, something to consider. Do you need help tracking, field dressing, skinning, ect. and is that included? I think most outfitters will do everything they can to give you a memorable hunt and get you a bear, its the best advertising. Good luck!

Just make sure they are a licensed/registered bear guide/outfitter.

A person may not place bait or guide bear hunters for compensation without first obtaining a Bear Outfitters License ($82.50, resident only) or Master Bear Outfitters License ($165.00, resident only).

Good Luck
