      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 .

Some favorite foods you can't find anymore....

Recommended Posts

One of mine is the Birdseye frozen peas with pearls onions in butter sauce. They no longer make them. Dang!! I loved those...another one, that I even called the company on, is Blue Bunny Raspberry Swirl ice cream. Quit making it a couple years ago. Blue Bunny lady said they never sold much of it, so they discontinued it. What the hey?! I Found that hard to believe; it was great. The breads they have for sandwiches now are poo, whatever happened to good ol' Sunbeam and Butter Top? Only white I can stand now, and it's really hard to find, is Sara Lee Old Fashioned. I'm talking plain old white bread for those quick PB&J sandwiches and pack-a-lunch for fishing sandwiches, not the whole grain unhulled tootsie-frootsie health nut stuff. Otherwise, I eat a lot of rye and oatmeal grain bread. Anyone else can't find any of their favorite foods anymore?

Almond Crescent cookies.  The have powdered sugar on them and you can find em at Christmas at Target.  They may be the best cookies out there.  I think it makes them good that they aren't available all the time.

Try the Iced Almonettes that are sugar free...They seem to be available everywhere...even Smurf's not favorite store. :P  I love 'em.

I think that's part of it. When you live in places like Bugtussle, selection gets limited partially by volume and partially because Scandinavians won't eat anything that isn't white and bland! :P I mean, we're lucky to get Chicken in a Biscuit crackers because the locals complain they're too spicy! :crazy: Now that I've attempted to run this thread off the tracks, I haven't seen those white fudge covered Oreos locally for a long time. And believe me it isn't like I haven't looked. Even in some of the larger stores in Owatonna & Albert's Leaf I haven't seen them.

I liked that spaghetti in a box too. And this stuff: Must've been too spicy. :D

I eat a lot of sandwichs at work so get tired of them.  Making smoked meat is great for them.  I used to like that jellied beef sandwich meat for a change.  Expensive though.  I haven't seen it for  years.  Seems I heard 10 years or more ago why they quit making it but can't remember why.

    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy. 
    • Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.
    • I took this picture in March of 2017 near my parent's house.  I've never seen turkeys cross ice like that...  They were headed towards a farmer's silos, probably looking for an easy meal.     
    • Best time of the year.  Lots of gobbling near me as well this weekend.  Great job!  
    • Spring woods are one of the best times to be out there. I was not able to hunt a morning till Saturday . I did get out Wednesday on opener more to scout and make sure nothing changed from the last time I scouted. Birds were still roosting in the same location but I was able to watch what they were doing and get a game plan together for a buddies son. He took some of the my suggestions and a plan worked out Thursday after work and he was able to put down a 22lb gobbler. It was awesome and his first turkey. His dad was pumped and now he is working on son #2 to get out. I was not able to hunt Friday because I didn’t leave work till around 6 but I had good idea what I wanted to . Funny how that always changes. Saturday morning I was there plenty early and I knew it would be loud walking in with the crunchy snow. I made my way to where I wanted to setup but it was so loud I had to change setup and went down around the lake hoping not to bump the birds. Saturday morning was the most gobbling and hens yelping I have ever heard in MN or WI. NE always ton of talking but this was pretty crazy Saturday morning. One of the gobblers was roosted on the point of this small lake and in my mind I knew he was going to fly down on the lake 20 minutes later that is what he did. Crazy this frozen lake was going to be my problem. Next thing you know 8 hens fly down right to him. He struts and shows off on the lake and did breed one hen out there. All the birds walked across the lake away from me then I noticed two birds fly from roost all the way across. Thought they were too big for hens take a look through the bino’s and they are two gobblers. The tom runs them off almost all the way back to me but still a little too far. He goes back to his hens but another set of hens come out of my woods to join the two other gobblers. They all then head over to the first group. Still that First Tom would not let them near the group. Once I saw how aggressive they were I started to get my decoys ready to put out but first I had a hen to deal with. I was doing some yelping because she was getting louder and closer. She almost walked over my feet looking for me, she circled me and got really loud and kept looking for that hen that should be there. Once she walked off I put the decoys out and heard a gobble long way off but knew the direction they were and they most likely were up in the woods just strutting for the ladies. Did some yelps on the box call and they gobbled closer than shut up. I got ready and 30 minutes later I see them coming through the woods and sun was just making them glow. Got ready did a yelp and they came down the hill a little further and saw the decoys and ran in. All 3 strutting and running with 3 hens following them. Once they got to about 12 yds they stopped and kept strutting and drumming. Dumped him right where he stood and one of the others stayed there bumping my decoy. Would of been perfect to pull a double. 24lbs , 3/4 spurs 10inch beard not the 3 gobblers I was hunting but it all worked out good either way. Was the first bird I have shot over this DSD Jake decoy since buying it 3 or 4 years ago. Maybe the 2nd or 3rd time I’ve used. The birds right now are on fire and split up really good, they were breaking up a few weeks ago but now I was hearing gobbling all directions . Snow is still over my knees in most spots in the woods our food plots have cleared off mostly just in the woods is holding up still. Pictures did not attach the first ime
    • Purple and gold finches are starting to become more common, but the redpolls are still lingering around. How late will they stick around for?
