      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 .

Since the DNR continues to ignore the very healthy and very huntable population of Sandhill Cranes in East Central MN. Regardless of how many calls and emails are placed they still say the same things. " ...we know there is a stable and huntable population, but there isn't enough interest or farmer complaints....." So I just keep emailing and calling. 

So until I get to hunt them at home I will need to travel. 

Can anyone here point me in the direction of a starting point on hunting in the NW Early Goose Zone??? I am not after specific locations. But I have no idea where to go for public lands, and have no contacts for private farm lands in that area of the state. 

Any help would be appreciated. Feel free to send me a PM if you don't want to say anything specific in an open forum. I'm just looking for a starting point.

The cranes around here are a danger to motorists!! They have been walking on the roads through the refuge. The cranes are starting to fly in flocks and hit wheat and oat fields. Neighbor guy I know a friend of mine hunts cranes up there I will reach out and see what he says

The way I understand it they are the best eating migratory birds you will ever eat. But they still seem to think that we shouldn't hunt them here in the sand belt counties in east central MN. Every cut hay field I derive past today had a dozen or more in it. 

I've made some calls and will do some driving when I am north next weekend.
