      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 .

Here's a little drama for you. 5 points seperates 10-13 positions. The top twelve make it into the chase. Next weeks race will decide who's in and who's not for 10, 11, 12 place.

I've been burning up some of my big name racers the last few weeks trying to get in this chase. This has been alot of fun this year. I think we players should get organized somehow and send a little somethin airjer's way for all he has done with this the last few years. What do you guys think about that?

    • I wont get out till Sat morn we shall see how it goes
    • Yikes! I think I see a gobbler track in the mud right before that blood trail starts. Hope everything turned out positive. Looking forward to pics.
    • I thought I would add some pictures. This is a 2013 frame from CW welding I believe. Yours might be a little different if it is from a different frame company. I started by blocking the house up and I removed the tire. The first time I ever did this their was almost no grease on the pivot at all. I bought this frame from a salvage auction after the house burned down. I am not sure if they did not grease it enough the first time or the grease got hot and ran out when the house burned down. This time when I took it off plenty of grease was still on the pivot and I could have got by another year without greasing it.   You can see the bolt you need to remove on the outside of the pivot.  Then cut the zip tie off to pull out the extra wire.  The whole arm will then slide off if you leave slack in the cables. I put a floor jack under the hub to make it easier. Then clean everything up and grease it.
    • Beautiful bird there Wallydog. Congrats  
    • Story goes like this. 1. Uncle from St Cloud arrives Boise 10 pm Thursday night 4/12. 2. Drive to Orofino Friday to hunt private property I've hunted since 1990 and scout some. 3. Deploy blind Saturday and scout (re-confirm bird presence) some more. 4. Arrive parking spot in fairly hard rain at 0430. 5. First gobble on roost at 0530. 6. 0550 flydown, Hens jakes and longbeards responding but not interested in my game......yet. 7. Very vocal birds for 45 minutes. 8. Silence for 1 hour 9. Distant gooble heard and responds to me at 0800 9a. Rain stops. 10. 0820 Gobbles getting closer, sounds like 3-5 birds. 11. Nuther gobble from different vector is heard.  12. Several longbeards now visible at 150 yards responding to everything I throw at them. 13. Gobble at ~60 yards from gobbler from different vector. 14. Mayhem, cacophony, loudmouths. 15. Single gobbler appears and is walking right into a bad spot for him. 16. He dies at 0900 at 25 yards by my uncles shot. 17. I attempt to hold and call back other toms but they won't have it. 18. 1500 Decide to pull up and move blind 1/4 mile. 19. Set up by 1545. 20. 1600 Make one series of calls.................sit down. 21. 1605 Peek out the slot of my turkey silo blind and see nice silent longbeard walking to decoys 15 yards distant. 22. Mayhem 23. Poke uncle Don and look in direct he came from to see another very alert longbeard that slips out of sight. 24. Said long beard meets his waterloo by my shot at 1610 and can't call the alert bird back...... 25. 1700 see three hens and a strutter slipping into brush at 100 yards. 26. 1715 Said strutter appears silent but strutting in all his glory at 35 yds. 27. Don smokes this one as well!  This is the first year we can harvest 2 bearded turkeys in the same day and Don is very likely one of the first Non-Residents to do so legally. 28. Radar shows big rain coming. 29. Let's pack up before we get drenched again. 30. Monday was a total washout, rain, rain, rain and snow.  We didn't hunt but did a farm/crop tour of my son in laws operation in Lewiston. 31. Radar/forecast indicated nothing but moisture for Tuesday. So We Drove Home to Boise. 32. Don flew home this morning. All in all we had a tremendous trip seeing loads of game and visiting with landowners.              
    • As I think about it, my interpretation of 2 layers thick was probably not correct. It's a uniformly distributed load that's assumed. So if the 10PSF is correct and 4.25 PSF is used up, then there's 5.75PSF left to work with. That means a straight calculation of 64 SF(an 8x8 platform) x 5.75 PSF = 368 pounds total spread mostly evenly over the whole platform. If stuff starts getting piled up in one area, then that creates a concentrated load; that's when my brain starts to hurt!! BTW, there are always factors of safety built in to structural design, but you probably don't want to get into those....for safety.    BTW, me and electrons don't get along
    • Plan on hitting the woods Saturday Morning.  Not real keyed in the birds yet.   They will turn more predictable.
    • I agree, now is the time to go up since its cool out, especially for you. What about the basic roof vents, they must be able to get in that way if the screens are not intact..
