      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 .

Hunting area experienced flash flood....

Recommended Posts

As the title says, my area experienced a flash flood with our recent downpour about 2 weeks ago. The area I hunt is in a river bottom area that is pretty large and flat in the lower parts of bluff country in SE MN. Went down there this weekend and saw mats of grass wrapped around the tree trunks about waist high. Any standing vegetation was mostly covered in mud and leaning in one direction indicating rushing water covered the area recently. A lot of standing water still on the trails and the sloughs in there are filled up to the brim. Overall, I saw A LOT less sign than what I am used to in this area so I think the flood may have caused the deer to leave the area to higher ground.

My question to the forum is.. How long do you think it'll take for the deer to return to the area?

Just a guess, but not that long. If you have food and cover and it dries up a bit, the deer will return. Still a month out to gun season... being next to a river the deer are more than likely used to water level fluctuations...

I live in SW WI. Same deal here, was terrible flooding. I wouldn't worry about it much. One thing about this area is that it will flood badly, but has the topography that drains pretty quickly and gets back to business as usual.
