      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!!!


Ne 2016 hunt

Recommended Posts

Moved over from different thread. This is from a couple weeks ago. Spring started great.

Well NE started the spring out great for Turkey season. We ended up with 13 birds filled all tags in camp.Couple guys had 3 tags and some had two tags one hunter had 1 tag. Everything worked out in our favor even though bird numbers were down but we are not complaning from how well we did.This is the frist spring I took all my birds out of my blind just worked out I did not have to walk to much and find some birds without my blind this year.Out of the 13 birds 6 shot without blind and only 3 shot over decoys. I was able to call in birds for two friends and my dad.
What a great trip most days had a lot of wind and really gusty but you can’t control old mother nature just have to figure out a way to find the birds and deal with the wind. Only had one blind end up in a tree. My dad and I were able to score another bird together that makes 4 years in a row we take a day to hunt and have been lucky enough to bag a bird.We had to sneak into a ravine and get up on a flat cause the birds were in it without them seeing us. One of them you scramble and try and get setup cause they were right on top of us.I setup the blind and walked it over to the shade of a cedar as my dad carried some of the gear in side with me. ) We were there 10 minutes and 3 long beards came right in. He was able to get a good shot off on one end up being 20lbs with some nice spurs. Now I do not think I will match this hunt the rest of the spring but what a way to get going. Next is MN on the 20th going to be going crazy waiting.

Public is really good for archery time. Gun season more people are around but you can still do some homework and get away from them.

    • Dandy Gobbler Don!
    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
