      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 .

Ground Blind

Recommended Posts

My wife is afraid of heights and want to go out for rifle season. We will be hunting private land surrounded by private land on all sides. My first question is it better to put this on the edge of an open area like a food plot or to try to conceal it in the woods on the highest groud possible. I also plan on putting a little orange on all 4 sides just in case some idiots wonder on to our land.

Second question is what is the best blind for 2 people to sit in? Cost is not really a concern

Its kind of late now to put up a blind. Most deer moving by it will pick out that something is different. That said I would put it somewhere you can blend it in with natural cover. Don't put it someplace where you will have no shot. I would try to get away from the food plot, but in a area they have to move through to get to it. GOOD LUCK

I would try to identify a high area to set up the blind. Deer don't naturally look up to identify potential predators. If there is anyway to overlook a high traffic area, you should get some shooting in. I often will sit on hillsides with no blind or cover and see plenty of deer.

I'll agree with the Double Bull. I have had two people in the blind and also filmed deer at the same time. It's not to late to put a blind up at all. If you put it up opening morning, cut some brush and branches and place them on the sides and top to break up the outline of the blind. It works for archery hunting so I see no reason why it won't work for a gun season. The idea of 4 orange tags on each side is also a great idea since you are hunting on the ground even on private property.

Goos luck.

I would go with a double bull also and I plan on putting 2 ground blinds out day before opener and possibly 1 on opening day, just blend it in well with the surrounding brush and you should be fine..you can also use scent killer to spray on it if you are worried about the smell
