      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 .

Pheasant reports

Recommended Posts

Some guys had tough going because of all the corn that is still in the fields. You should be good to go in two weeks though.

We did all right this past weekend. Still lots and lots of cover and too nice of weather. I like it nasty out there when I'm chasing pheasants. I think we totaled 6 out of our small group Saturday and then I shot a couple on Sunday by myself and I don't know how the rest of the fellas did.

We eneded up with 24 for the two days with 8 guys. Hunted by Lake Ponisett.

My buddies Dad was out by Kennebec, SD and said that he has never seen so many birds. I guess they limited out quickly.

Thinking of trying a do it yourself trip to the huron area or aberdeen. Is this doable for 2 guys, 2 dogs? Traditionally i go to Iowa, but the birds are down. Any tips on lodging and public around the area would be appreciated.

Thanks,

BHS

Tons of birds up by Pollock this weekend. We took a break from bowhunting yesterday afternoon and shot 5 birds. We didn't have a dog so we were just walking some of the core land and trying to flush them ourselves.

I hunted all public walk in areas today, even with the elements 40mph winds, snow etc. We only hunted for an 1.5 hours just before dark and didn't have a problem finding our birds.

Was lots of fun with my pointers and the birds sitting nice and tight!

Still lots of corn in, and with the weather we have had now, its gonna take some warm temps or a really cold freeze before the rest will be coming out.

I will be out again tomorrow, hopefully the wind wont be as bad as it was today.
