      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 .

After translating that, it appears you should make it through the spraying and spreading season with flying colors. Especially if your wife antes up with some cake from time to time. :D

My buddies sister use to work at Pillsbury in the food test lab back many years ago when we bear hunted. We would get skids of frosting, pie filling, and once a 55 gal drum of some kind of syrup. I would say that year we had the best dang bait in the state and we all filled out! :)

Yea it is sad! so much waste... you don't even have to pay for bait anymore!

When my daughter was young we use to go to the Wonder Store and get their old stuff. We had great fun together sitting in the garage opening Twinkies and other stuff and putting them all in bait buckets to haul to the woods for bait!

yes it is. Does your new contact have the same name as me? The guy I get mine from is from your neck of the woods and he has heard of you.

Boar, I'd get awfully fat hunting over your bait barrel!  Not to mention my scent would be all over the area with me walking back and forth from the stand to the barrel all the time...

lol, just wondering but what happens if you don't get drawn or is it a no quota area ? I figured not to collect anything until I get drawn ?

Right on, assumed, and best of luck, I'm somewhat guiding 3 hopeful guys in permit area 51(they put in lottery style). Got a giant of a bear that's been hanging around the past 3-4 years and they are hoping to get a chance at him and so am I. He really crushed, along with other bears, the standing corn last fall. One weird ? I have is bear season is rather lengthy compared to what I thought the season was so is there a best time meaning right at opener first 2 weeks or something or do more guys get them later in the season ? Would love to see a print out of when they are taken assuming right out of the gate is likely the most kills and most often hunted, do guys keep baiting right along through the whole season or is there a point it's just not gonna happen ?

    • It was hard spring on babies
    • Made it up Thursday night on Rainy. Went out first thing Friday morning on the Arrowhead Trail. It was a hot one! Kicked up 2 birds, the first would have been an easy first bird for the year if i hadn't been wiping the sweat off my face. Second bird had held it's ground and flushed well behind me. Heard no Dumming. Friday night was the Ruffed Grouse Society banquet on the Ash River. Prime-Rib was good. About all to say on the banquet. Saturday headed West on 11 and walked the RGS management trail along the Rainy River. Got one early, walked the loop flushed another. Quick miss. Came back and fished 8-mile and landed handfuls of cigars. Nothing worth bringing back. Jig n Minnow. Sunday morning, nothing. Came in at noon, watched the Vikes. Headed home. Grouse season's still early. Upcoming weeks should produce more birds! Good Luck Ya'LL
    • You must have an existing subscription for it to be $7 a month when you use it, and for getting it prorated? I'm looking at getting a tailgater but from what I was reading the cheapest package I can get will be $39.99 a month and will be billed in full month increments. But it does allow me to only pay by the month when I use it instead of having to sign into a contract and pay every month for something that will likely only get used a few months a year.
    • From my understanding males migrate earlier then the females. I've only seen females the last week and a half.
    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!
