      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 .

Pre-rut calling

Recommended Posts

What do you all find to be the most effective pre rut call for deer in general? I first and foremost want to have good action...but Im really hoping to tag a nice buck next weekend. I think the pre rut will be on, and I think it will be a great time to have success. What is a good call to bring in bucks? Ive heard rattling is pointless if the buck to doe ratio is low, which it is in most parts of the state of MN. Ive heard the Doe Blat is a good general deer call that seems to be really effective. But is there a specific call that will bring in bucks? Ive also heard it is wise to stay non-agressive during this period. I just havent tried calling much, and the times I have called werent productive. Anyone have any real positive experience with calling? Or on what to definately not do during the pre rut?

Some lower short grunts can be effective along with some light rattling. I like to give a series of two or three grunts wait 5-10 minutes and if nobody shows then I start a light sparing match with my rattling antlers. Light clicks and grinds lasting 15-30 seconds then set down the horns and wait to see what comes in. Once the deer get more aggressive and start chasing I'll bring the volume up on the calls and start light rattling with intermittant pauses while grinding the horns slightly and a few louder clacks a few softer grinds and set the horns down and get ready. Be aware of your downwind side as deer will often try to sneak downwind to see who is in the fight. I have called in alot of deer with this. I usally call blind but have tickled the horns with deer in sight and have decent results with that as well. I think you terrain setup is important when calling as well.

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
