      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 .

Deer Sightings

Recommended Posts

After reading all the hunting reports from the firearm season so far, I thought to myself: Do you think with the reduced number of antlerless tags, people are seeing more deer because they are forced to wait for a buck? Would they have seen as many without having to wait?

I have read many fair/good reports from people, and they end it with "no doe tags this year so we didn't shoot."

I grew up hunting with a family with the brown is down philosophy. I personally changed my style of hunting on my own. I prefer to hunt for mature bucks. I will take a doe for the freezer if the area allows it or if the season is winding down. I, personally, enjoy "hunting" more than killing, but I do like to have venison around. However, I see a lot of deer because I don't shoot "many" and let a lot of deer walk.

NOTE: This is not me preaching about how to hunt or complaining about others. Just merely discussion on deer sightings going up because of fewer antlerless tags.

I would say that for me personally your idea is correct. Typically I would shoot the first good doe I saw but this year I had to let 15 or more deer walk before I actually saw a shootable buck. Had I just shot the first doe I wouldn't even know those other deer were around.
