      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 .

Apples?

Recommended Posts

When do the deer in Northern MN usually start eating the apples, after the first frost? I am hunting some private land with apple trees, and they have hardly been touched by the deer, and there's ton's of apples. Just wondering if anyone had any opinions/ experience with that.Thanks,

AC

In So MN the come into the edge of town and eat them off of my dad's trees. I planted some late season apple trees in one of our woods and they finally have about 50 apples on them this year. It only took about 12 years to start getting a decent amount of apples!

I have been feeding apples to the deer and as of last weekend, they have not eaten one. The wild crabapple trees in the woods by us dont get any attention until mid October.

I hunt SE of Fargo, ND by a little town called Leonard. Out by the Sheyenne national grasslands.

I place the apples by a bait pile of corn and a few items for a handicapped hunt I guide for. They will eat all the food and the bait can be gone for a day or two and the apples just lye there.

I also dumped apples on a woods edge 10-12 years every year,Close to Mooselake.Deer never touched em!

Now where I hunt there are two HUGE crabapple trees and a few smaller.In Aug. lots of runny deer droppings,good trails. I hunted the area 5 yrs and NO deer there.By the time the corn is gone so are the apples. But No deer! In this area I guess they prefer corn,the apples are untouched once corn develops.

about 70 yds away is a main trail bypassing the apples,thats my honey hole.

I think right now the white oaks are dropping their acorns. When these are on the ground deer won't touch much else.
