      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 .

Pheasants in late November ???

Recommended Posts

Is the pheasant season still going strong in late November?  Some friends brought up an idea to go out after MN deer season is over, but I'm wondering if it is "worth" it.

 

Please don't respond with generic answers like: its always a good time...  I only have so many vacation hours and vacation dollars i can use for hunting, so im trying to figure out if I should just hunt ducks locally or make a trip.

 

Thanks,

TNFL

I suppose it all comes down to what you think is worth it. Depends on what part of the state your heading to, public or private land. We've been out thanksgiving weekend when bird #s are up and hunted both, when you see one you might see a hundred, especially if there's some snow. Think thick, and almost Un walkable. ...and you'll have fun. About that time waterfowl is usually wrapped up anyhow.

The pheasant season goes strong until it closes January 3rd.

There are many benefits to a late season hunt:

crops will likely all be out,

sloughs and water will be frozen providing new areas to walk,

fair weather hunters are done for the year

temps are cooler and easier on the dogs

hopefully snow is on the ground makes birds sit a little tighter and tracking easier

The cons:

birds are much spookier and educated

crunchy snow makes too much noise

any windy day can make for a long cold day

 

my favorite time to hunt is late season

best time to hunt pheasants in SD; the later the better.  Last year between christmas and new years, we had snow, and were well past freezeup; most guys had transitioned to ice fishing and we had easy hunting.  This is the time of year when a lab that likes punching cattails is invaluable.  2 days in a row we had a 3 man limit of perch and a 3 man limit of pheasants.  Can't beat that!
