      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 .

... of world's WORST Mushroom hunter...

But I did fid this guy... Actually I found 3 but only picked this one.  Hopefully I'll find some time to check back at the same spot later this week. I think it's a little early where I hunt. A few warm days this week after all this rain and they should be poppin'! (Yeah, yeah... I know you should use a porous mesh bag, but I didn't have any handy)

Every year I forget how good these are, three hours of wandering aimlessly was definitely worth it, even for just one tasty morsel.

For those of you who have never hunted them - can you find the mushroom in this pic?

No! Where is it??!

Easy to say "yeah well the camera is zoomed-out."  But this is your vantage point when searching.  It's almost like "glassing" a hillside when hunting.  You choose one small area in-front of you and scan it thoroughly before moving to the next.  Almost stepped on this guy before I spotted him.

I think I might hit the area off a well known bike path in Rochester, not mentioned to avoid upsetting delicate sensibilities but it is near a large mansion paid for by the pre medicare patients who needed treatment.  :D

With Morels it's pretty safe - no other 'shroom around here looks like them.  There are false morels that are poisonous, but I think they only exist in the southern US.  Also, even if we had them, it's easy to tell them apart.  True morels are hollow, falls ones are not.

With my luck, it would be a new look-alike species. I'd end up running aroiund naked declaring "I am the white rabbit!!"

Actually Found a TON of Verpas on Sunday.....they look too close for comfort until you cut them in half and see the cottony threads inside.  And well the cap is only connected on the very tip.  But still too close for comfort.

    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
    • There’s a nice stretch of warm weather. I just wonder if it’s enough to melt our local lakes by opener    Then the fish have to spawn
    • Got gobbles off the roost and they are now on the ground.
