      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 .

Big Horn Mtns

Recommended Posts

Do you have a long track or do u mostly trail ride? We have been going out to the southern bighorns for past 15 years, and we do mostly off trail riding, so we go in the beginning of March when the snow is set up better and there is a real good base, we all have short tracks and we can go just about everywhere we want to go,that time of year, the days are longer and the temps are warmer,great riding. I went out to big horns early in the season once and we couldnt get anywhere off trail because of the deep fluffy snow Nothing beats spring time riding in mountains. The Northern bighorns has more lodging options and is alittle more populated, and alot more riders, The southern bighorns has its own appeal, its more quite and how should i say it less ritzy I guess. Either way u will have a nice time.

I have been there before. If you are thinking of staying on the mountain you need to call ASAP!!!! the lodges fill up fast!!! Bear lodge seems to be the best to say at, most organized and stuff like that, The passage is a very nice place but just never seem to be organized and Arrowhead worked just fine for us last year.

What kind of information are you looking for i can help you out??

Check out my post on the second page, Them pictures are from last year!!!! Lots of Fun!!!!!

We have short tracks and mostly just trail ride. We would like to go more in the spring but Dec is the only time it works for us. I was thinking of staying at Bear Lodge from what I have seen so far. I have not talked to them yet but I did see the Passage has rooms left. Does it get real busy? i would rather have it more peaceful so would maybe consider the southern side. Any recommended lodging in that area?

You will be just fine riding trails with short tracks. You can always rent a mountain sled one day when you are out there. It does get really busy out there a lot of ppl book there trip a year in advance just to make sure they get a room. I have never stayed anywhere but them three lodges i listed above.

They got some snow there a few days ago... didn't stick but its the start of the snow season.

Any other questions let me know smile

We got rooms at Bear Lodge. Now I will have to work on jetting the sleds and getting them ready to go. Does it seem to be quite a bit busier on weekends? Half of our trip will be during the week so hopefully it won't be too crowded.

We will be there Dec 20-23. Its the first time we have ever rode out there. So I am sure it will be a learning experience. But it looks like they have a pretty good shop there if we have problems or forget something.

There shop is nice!!! They have about 30 sled to rent there as well if anything goes wrong. I have never been out there that early so i guess i dont know what to tell you about the snow conditions at that time of the year.

Once u go mountain riding u will be hooked, getting off trail and heading into the back country is awsome, Like I said in a earlier post we have been going to southern bighorns{meadowlark resort} for the past 15 years and every time we go we always find new areas that we have never ridden before, some of the valleys and play areas are so big u can spend the whole day just play riding, If snow is low watch for the rocks laugh

    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
    • Lunch.....fit for a king! Roast beef commercial with left over beef roast. Just thought I'd share. 
    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins.
