      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 .

Recommended Posts

Well I was planning on hunting this weekend, but due to some bad timing and an unfortunate event, most of my land access was cut off. I may still giver a go on some public land though.

I'm hoping to get out for a bit in the morning, but am getting ready for an out of state hunt in a couple days. Doesn't leave much time between now and then with all that needs to get done before I can go.

Gonna hit it hard after I get back though. grin

Saw 13 with beards last night - just got behind the barn and stepped out to open a gate and there were 7.....in shotgun range, I had no gun along cry I knew by the time I got the bow and release and arrows out they'd be out of range so I climbed back in the truck and kept going.

Got over the ridge about 30 seconds later and another group of 6 was farting around in the pasture under some apple trees. Both groups were a mix of this springs jakes with say 5" beards and the others dandies.

I have this Fri off for the zone T hunt, might have to take the shotgun for a walk between morning and evening hunts grin

Me and my girlfriend each got one on Wedsday. SHe got a jake and I poked a hen with my bow. We only had one afternoon so we shot the first chance we had. I snuck up on a flock of 15 or so and we almost stepped on a group that was working the river bank. We hunted 262.

I took my nine year old daughter out on Friday morning. We set up in a hay field next to a corn field where we have seen turkeys using the area. Just after 8:00 eleven hens walked out of the woods and came straight to us. I thought she might want to wait for a Tom but the sight of those turkeys changed her mind instantly. She picked out the closest one at about twenty yards and dropped it clean with her 20 gauge. I got it on video and now she is showing it to all of her friends who come over. On a side note she also got two green heads on Monday morning, between the tail fan and the green head she is going to fill up her room and empty my wallet pretty quick.

Didn't make it out until Thursday night due to the rain. Got out of my truck about 5:00, shot a hen at about 5:40, something like that. Saw them on a ridge when I pulled in my buddies driveway. We knew where they were going to head to roost, so I circled around & cut them off. Didn't actually hit her as good as I would have liked. She tried to fly off to the roost & then gave out & crashed about 40' down through the branches. It made a pretty good racket.

mrklean in the fall the toms and jakes all group up same w/ the hens and young ones. very rarely males will gobble and ive never called or used decoys for them during the fall. you have to scout out the area ur going to hunt and find where they are feeding and then set up and wait for them to come through feeding. when in the spring if ur not familar w/ spring hunting the males fight over the hens and u can call and use decoys

browning summed it up perfect a different ball game you have to go to the food source and not rely on the mating aspect to get your bird. but none the less still a awesome time to spend days in the woods?!!?

    • Six of us shot 10 on public land Saturday near Worthington.  Good day until the wind really kicked up at the end of the day.
    • I have trail camp pics of some yearlings sparring.
    • yea but dave we will never really know now will we!!!!!!!! woulda shoulda......... its  W for da good guys and  L fer dem other ones!!!!!!!!!
    • Parise Update:    Zach Parise, battling an undisclosed injury, was in a red jersey and skating on a line with Joel Eriksson Ekand Eric Staal. The goal for the past several days was for him to make his season debut this weekend. But early in practice, Parise left the ice and did not return. "I talked briefly with Chuck, but he said it was a setback. I don't know how much of a setback or anything," Boudreau said. "I know I talked to him before practice and he felt great. That's why he was in a red color and was ready to go. The next thing I know, somebody told me he went off. I don't know why he went off. Obviously, something didn't feel right."   My feelings is that he needs to be put on the LTIL and get 100%.
    • 4 at the most, maybe only 2 if they don't beat the Ravens....
    • looks like we will have a 5 game winning streak
    • Isn't the bye week like 3 weeks away? Week 9?
    • I'd just expect a 72 inch moose.  No need for that many people who have no idea what they're doing. 
    • Highly doubtful that the Vikings pull off this win if Rogers stays healthy. They will probably have to put up more than 23 points against most teams. 
    • Scrapes are appearing in numbers now.  I've seen bucks with does a few times in the past week and not even the young, dumb bucks are sniffing around yet.  Things should definitely change in the next week...
