      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 .

Its always been a 9 day season in zone 2 and a 16 day season in zone 1.

Its always crazy on the opener. I would say that 90% of the hunters who will hunt, are out on opener. I've always hunted public land, but it seems that most people have their spots pretty well laid out.

If you are new to the land you plan to hunt, get there early and be ready to walk in at least an hour before sunrise. Bring a flashlight to let other hunters know where you are if they start getting close to you on their way in.

It is public and no one "owns" a spot. Its also not worth fighting over, so I would leave if someone confronted me. Its happened. Feel free to call the cops because its hunter harassment, especially if someone makes threats.

Make sure to have a back up spot, wear as much orange as you can afford, be on alert, because moving hunters move deer for you.

icecold,

I hunt around Henderson and I think it could be a little more crazy this year than in past years.

I'm fortunate to have some of my own land to hunt on but I know there are hunting parties that used to hunt the "second" season and now don't have a place to hunt with the seasons are setup now in the old zone 4.

Give it a shot and see how it goes. If the public land is overcrowded maybe you'll have to look to the big forests up North. Just a suggestion.

I hunt the same area as you, and i think it will be crazy this year! I have heard of a few more people talk about getting a license this year because of the extended season, and all of them hunt public land around here. Unfortunatly, public is my only option.
