      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!!!

First hunt of the spring

Recommended Posts

I'm tring to get all caught up at work but thought I would jump on here quick. 3 guys 4 birds for us in NE it was a good hunt all had good chances . I ended up tagging out and my dad filled his one tag and buddy filled his one tag. I was the only one to get two tags.

Easter bird and then I put my bow away until my buddy filled his tag. It was a fun hunt I already miss being down there. It's home away from home.






This was the first year I have stayed in my blind and used a decoy. The birds were just ready to go. Found a nest with 4 eggs in it. Also saw a lot of breeding going on. Birds were broke up good and just had to get them on our chunks of land. Also saw a 10pt buck still having his head gear on that was surprising. Maybe have a chance to head back down with the gun to fill one more tag if I want to buy. Now is time to get even with these critters up here with the gun.

I called my two birds, my dad’s and buddies . The box call just put one more notch on it . The other 3 were all mouth calls. Really had to get aggressive the more aggressive I was the better results we had. Now up here next week going to be different were less is more most times.

Do not have all the pictures yet but these are a few. Already planning our fall hunt for deer. Wish I could get there and hunt more then we do. Two times a year is just not enough.

Sounds like a great trip to me - congrats on the birds! I look forward to those 4 days all year long and it's always over in the blink of an eye.

IT's been a great spring for most going down there. I know most the A-1 guys did well also.

A few more just got there when we were leaving so some more arrows will be flying.
