      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 .

Losing CRP - Looking for CRP farm land to hunt in 2009

Recommended Posts

The CRP land we have been hunting for years is being turned into crops next year, unfortunately. The farmer that has been allowing us to hunt his property has been great and I understand the economics he is faced with. But my hunting partner and I will need to find different grounds to hunt next year. If you are a farmer or know one that has CRP or wetlands we might be able to hunt next year, please let me know! Thanks in advance for any responses.....

I noticed in the SD public lands map book that there are more than a few of my favorite walk-in areas suddenly absent...it is a problem that is going to continue for the foreseeable future.

I don't really have a good answer for you, except to ask if you really do need to find a new place to hunt...cropland...even a cut cropfield later in the season...with a few tree groves or low spots that remain unfarmed can offer good hunting opportunities. But that would depend on if the farmer is willing to let you onto his cropland, and/or if you are willing to wait until the crop is harvested later in the season...

Thanks for your reply Jarrod!

I have pointing dogs and they do their best work in the fields of non-cropland areas. They can hunt the picked fields, however this is not playing to their strengh. Getting to my senior period, it's a lot easier for me to walk up to a dog on point in those big Dakota fields than chase a dog to a flush.........

I had really hoped I would have gotten more replies on this one from farmers in South Dakota.

unfortanetly this SD section doesnt see to much traffic. I know your frustrated but your in the same boat that the rest of us are in. Yup were losing areas and its unfortanate but it is what it is.

I would suggest buying the same book Jarrod has. With a little effort and some homework you can have just as much success hunting public lands as you will on any private lands. Is that going to happen this weekend on the opener probably not, but my favorite time to hunt is late season anyway after the corn and all the fair weathered hunters are done hunting all the public lands.

I hunt with 2 GSP's and I always seem to have more fun when its cold and snowy out and those birds sit tight. I am excited to hunt this weekend, but not near as excited or looking forward to my late december hunts with my dogs.

Thanks for your reply and common sense!

On the picked cropland item; those are better suited generally for flushing dogs rather than pointing dogs like I have......

CRP and wetlands work best surrounded by cropland.

    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
    • Never heard of it. I was looking to see what kind of Side Arm you needed a cooler for?  
    • Just as easy with Dish as Direct, as someone else mentioned I would look at the Tailgater from DISH, It will automatically lock onto the sats. I bought mine from DISH, it included a receiver and was about $300.  Then it is $7/month when you want to use it, they also prorate that $7 for a part of a month or day or week. We use it fishing and at hunting camp.
    • Maybe!!! those are the company dishes!! Actually just took them out of the dishwasher and it wasn't chow time for da hounddogs yet!!
    • Looks good, but you aren't serving it in Dog bowls are you?
