      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 .

Opening weekend results

Recommended Posts

Area 247

We ended up 1 for 4, my youngest shot a nice doe Saturday evening. We saw doe's, fawn's and two small fork horn bucks. 1 guy is hunting all week, leaving next Friday. Me and my boys will arrive Friday night to try and fill our remaining tags Saturday and Sunday. Man was it WARM both days, 71 Saturday and 68 Sunday. Windy Sunday and pretty calm Saturday. First time ever hunting MN gun opener in shoes, short sleeve shirt and blue jeans under my orange. The bucks we saw were harassing the doe's and they wanted nothing to do with them, the fawns were still with the doe's. Allot of shooting Saturday, I think a fare amount of that was duck hunters. Sunday had less shooting. Weather looks like it's going to be about the same next weekend as this past weekend. Will be interesting to see if the big boys will start to move or not.

Dropped my sons deer off at the meat market this morning and they guy said yesterday they took in 212 deer. Most single day amount they have ever had.

246

2/5....Seen a lot of deer passed on some small ones. Deer were every wear Saturday. Bucks chasing does it was fun to see. Sunday was the Dead Sea. Nothing moving at all and only heard 5 gun shots on public land.

Seen hundreds of deer every night in the fields driving back from the woods to the cabin.

I still can't believe 246 was lottery. There's deer everywhere!!

Fun Weekend..

Hey Jeff, nice to hear from you.  I missed Sat morning, sat Saturday night through Monday morning never saw a deer on stand.  Saw 8 total (group total) all from one stand.  

Just on the other side of woods from you.  Other tan the first 1hr of day it was dead by us.

Definitely deer around, but our sightings were limited.

My group has seen 2 forks 1 spike and 3 3pts along with a glimpse of a nice one with some good antlers. Haven't fired a shot yet. Does are scarse though, but better than last year when we saw 5 wolves opening weekend. Zone 183 Nemadji Forest.

We got 3 f 12. 2 bucks and a doe. Everything we hunt is either corn or submerged in water so I didn't expect much in terms of success which is fine. My two younger brothers each shot a deer with well placed shots which was great because they have not had great success in the past. I think I was happier seeing them get deer than if I had filled mine to be honest. I have gotten plenty over the years and now enjoy the younger hunters filling their tags and learning to figure things out. The weather was unbelievable.

We went 2-5 with a Buck and Doe. 4 Wolves seen on stand as well and yes the weather was unbelievable but suked if you asked me. I like cold and snow to keep the deer moving and looking for food. I spent most of the Hot days trying to stay awake and falling off my stand! :(
