      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 .

hunting areas

Recommended Posts

My son is trying to get me into hunting again. I haven't hunted in 25 years. We plan to do a duck hunt next month, but I am not sure where to go. Any places in the east central area anyone wish to recommend? He has the decoys, I have the boat, we also have the waders. Only thing we don't have is a dog so we'll have to be fido.

I would suggest a WMA map. Use that to scout. I would strongly suggest scouting before you head out. Get used to the swamp you plan to hunt (can be very confusing in the dark, if your not familiar).

Best of luck finding a spot. Hope you can get some birds, and hope you get back into this great sport! Lots of family bonding can be had, with a bonus brid here and their.

I notice some rivers as I "scout" the Isanti area using DU's Hunting Reports page. If you zoom in it goes to 2003 FSA Airphotos just like weather.com radar maps.

I've had lots of luck on rivers in the past, nothing like a nice float while the fall leaves flutter around you. If setting out decoys watch for where birds will cut across land to stay on the general course of the river, no fun to be stuck in a wide bend while the birds cut across the base 1/2 mile away.
