      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 .

Fayette/West Union Pheasants

Recommended Posts

Hello all, I just got invited from a guest of ours to come down and do a little pheasant hunting near these two towns. I have never hunted this area before. Any idea of what I should expect. Thanks again for all the help and I look forward to coming to the area. We plan on coming late November or early december. Thanks!!

Thanks Delmuts, He said he has lots of private land to hunt and did well last year. Just kind of looking as to what to expect. We usually take 5-6 trips a year to North Dakota, Montana and Southern Minnesota. We did hunt near Algoma IA a couple of years ago and found a fare number of birds. Any one else?? Thanks Oh Delmuts what county is Fayette and west union in.

The DNR is finishing up their roadside counts and results are showing a 60% decline from last year. Iowa has had a double whammy between the harsh winter of '07/08 and the summer flooding. There should still be some fair pheasant hunting espcially if there is good habitat. If you had a dusting of snow when you come in late Nov/early December that would help. Keep in mind shotgun deer opens first weekend in December in Iowa and Fayette County is hunted fairly hard.

KabNam, Thanks for your post. I really don't want to be out there with the deer hunters, so maybe late Nov we will head down there. Thanks again and we look forward to our trip
