      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 .

High moon at primetime??

Recommended Posts

Good day all. I was reading the October issue of North American Whitetail this weekend and read an article by a guy in Ohio who has shot 3 200" bucks. Anywho, he said something about the moon "being high at primetime" on certain days. He says he often only gets sightings of the big boys in daylight during this time. What is he talking about exactly? Anyone know or have an idea? Anyone else read the article? Your thoughts? Thanks.

Isn't this the same as those calendars that base wildlife and fishing activity off of the moon? I think a lot of handheld GPS units have this information in them also.

Its been my personal experience that a guy can get what I like to call "the shaft" during any and all conditions, reguardless of how its supposed to be. smile

It can all come together just as fast.

I think that when you have a high full moon the deer will be more active through out the night, will bed down for a while and will get up and move around late morning to early afternoon again. I don't know that this is any different than any other time but people will write what they think will sell.

My understanding of this 'theory' is that when there is a full moon at night, the big boys stay up all night feeding and chasing and don't feel the need to get up and about during hunting hours.

However, when the moon is not providing light at night, then the deer movement around the evenings and mornings (i.e. hunting hours) increases.

Just my understanding, for what it's worth.

I would like respectfully disagree with Murray and his moon guide. I don't let the moon dictate any way I hunt. I think that deer base their activity on temperature, weather, pressure/disturbance, and the lengthening or shortening of daylight. Deer are nocturnal by nature and peak visible activity by the hunter will typically occur closer to night. An exceptional period of severely increased daytime activity is of course pre rut and rut. During the chase phase the bucks will be looking for does and on their vulnerable feet and active at any and every moment. They won't look at the moon and decide to take their union break once the sun is over the trees. Same with breeding. If a doe will stand he will mount. The crescent moon won't influence him to go see the vikes game instead. I guess I'm just bitter about too many people blaming their inability to harvest a mature buck on nonsensical stuff like the moon. There's just too many other more important factors.

I totally agree with you Matt. I posted on a thread in the archery forum basically stating the same thing. The amount of daylight is the only constant in the wild kingdom. Nature's calender/clock.
