      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 .

Last year was a disspointment compared to fall of 2006, this year seems to be off to a slow start as well, lots of miles covedered for a few birds from what I have seen and heard so far. The leaves are still 80% on and the next week or so should give a better indication after they fall.

Depends on the area in the arrowhead. Some areas the birds are up and other areas I use to see a lot of birds are down. They are starting to spread out more and the leaves are comming down so it should pick up now. Probably one more week or so until most the leaves are down around Ely.

Hunted last weekend in Isabella and it seemed to be kind of slow. Last year was slow, but not this slow. We covered a ton of ground and only encountered 8 birds in two full days.

I was Northeast of Isabella and we had two full days of grouse hunting also 2 Grouse and 3 Woodcock. Saw more Woodcock than we did grouse. There sure was a lot of road hunters out.

I hunt near I Falls. I usually walk by myself with no dogs and see a few birds. I had an opportunity to hunt with some great dogs the other day and boy does that make a difference. We had 3 dogs with beeper colers (spelling). We flushed 25 birds and shot 14. We got birds that I would have walked past all day long. Unbelievable. Every trail we walked had birds on it. Dogs that know what they are doing make a huge difference. Happy Hunting.
