      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!!!


Mn 2016

Recommended Posts

Mn was a blast this year, well every year it's a blast turkey hunting. Had some close calls that just didn't work out. I was able to scout new land we just got permission on for hunting and sure nice to be out turkey hunting scouting for deer. I'm pumped for deer season already. We will be putting in a couple larger plots this spring so the work wil be coming soon. Once i'm done with turkey seasons.

I was lucky to get a bird after a bunch of close calls and mess ups . Sorry not the best picture was trying to just use the timer on my phone. Forgot my camera and I rarely have my phone with me hunting.


Saturday morning





For some reason cannot get the pictures to upload. Will try later.

looking good!  My kids taught me to take a video when I'm alone and then take a screen shot off of the video.  Works well for fish too.

I'm so mad Primos after 20 years of making that call stop making it last year. They made a few in a special package but no more. :(

My mn bird was taken with the Lil heartbreaker didn't have a mask on no mouth call in I just sat down hit the box call and a few mintues later my bird showed up came right in with a few little yelps. Took me a little bit to get my call in my hand since they caught me off guard looking for my calling when I was not ready.

Even for custom box calls the Lil Heartbreaker in my mind is one of the top box calls out there. I have an e-mail to Primos seeing if they would ever start making it again. Do not know why they would stop making that call it won a few years in a row best box call.

This spring from NE and MN I added 4 out of the 7 birds I called in for me and others. Only put a notch when the box call harvested the bird :)

Good luck to all starting today.
