      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 .

The first hunt in this spot the birds walked right up to the decoys and my son arrowed a tom but not a good hit and lost him . The next morning we had a different tom gobble all morning and stayed out about 45 yard for 20 min goblin and starring at the decoys and then left ! 2 days latter we tried again in the morning and we had 3 toms on 3 sides of the blind , within 60 yards and they didn't like the decoys either ! 

So should I leave the decoys at home tonight ? Or maybe place them out about 60 yards so they pass by me staring at the decoys? 

What to try

You gotta move.  They've seen that set up.  They don't like it.  They're scared. Change it.  

Move the blind to where you see them most often, even if it means right in the middle of the field.  

Change your decoy set up too.  If you've been using a hen and a jake, leave the jake at home, or try two hens, or......something different, just change.

If I use a decoy it's a jake.  I prefer a strutter.  Otherwise I leave them at home.

I didn't hear or see any from the blind . About 7:30 I moved the blind . The walking back to the truck there were 2 toms in the field still feeding .

Try without decoys

Last night I called in  4 birds all from different directions one behind me at 15 yads and two toms together at about maybe 3. Thought they were going to walk on me.

Birds will tell you what they like if they are hanging up get rid of them or move them next to your blind a couple yds away. Go with just a hen or two hens something different than what they have seen already.
