      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 .

Archery opener

Recommended Posts

This weekend is the opener and I will be traveling to NoDak. Is anyone else going to hit the opener or am I the only nut that is going to deal with the warmer weather?

Good luck to all if you venture out.

I am going to try to get out somewhere this weekend. I have a permit to hunt in Fargo but I am thinking that may be a late season thing. I haven't had a chance to do a whole lot of scouting but I do have a pretty good idea where the deer are moving pn some other land that I can hunt. I'm definately not excited about hunting in the heat, though.

If its that hot, I will be working on other things. I keep a freezer there for the hot weather. If needed, I will skin and quarter and then place in the freezer and place a 2x4 in between the lid and freezer and then it acts like a walk in cooler.

Not me- I've got a b-day party for my littel girl (her 1st birthday!)

Good luck, Tom. I hope you have a big ol' velvetty giant walk by at 12 yards!

Forecast looks like it'll heat up this weekend. Bummer. If you don't get any work done out there, let me know- I'll do my best to run out there and take care of whatever you'd like.

I may take you up on that Scoot when I start to do the baiting for the handicapped hunt. Its hard for me to bait every week from Minnesota.

Thanks for the offer.

Yep, I should be able to help you with that. I'll be gone Sep. 11 - 20, but will happily buzz out there both before or after those dates. It might work out for me to bring my little boy out and have him help me- he's pretty interested in deer and the woods, so it'll be a god chance to fuel the fire a little bit. Just let me know when and how to help.

Well, I got my camera's up, stands up and my blind and bait started for the handicapped hunt I guide for. Also placed up 84 No hunting and tres. signs along the fences.

Way to hot to hunt and a lot of fall left to enjoy some cooler days with the work done.

I was thinking of you this weekend Tom. Definitely a cooker out there! I wouldn't have bothered sitting in a stand either. This week looks a lot cooler though. Maybe next weekend will be better? I hope so!

1.25" in Lisbon? We got over 3" at my place in West Fargo! Definitely welcome rain though...

I was going to bring my son to ND archery hunting next weekend - anyone know how long it takes to get the archery tag in the mail? I'm assuming the archery license is similar to the tag issued for rifle hunting.

If you apply online, I believe you can print outr a number that will allow one to hunt right away.. Or maybe its the license purchased by telephone. One way it does work.

One could also stop at a Schells and purchase one as they have always sold them. I would call ahead to make sure they have them on hand.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
