      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 .

Snow and deer movement

Recommended Posts

Just checked the forecast for the hunting area and it is supposed to snow a few of the days. My question is will the deer continue to move during the snow or will they hunker down and sit tight until after the snow stops falling? THe forecast says snow showers, so I am assuming that it won't be an intense storm.

I love hunting in the snow. With only a few inches coming it should not slow their movement down.

When a larger system comes in, I find that day before to be awesome as the deer will be feeding heavy.

Like others have said, it depends on the amount of snow and how windy it gets as the front passes through. Right before and right after it snows or rains heavily the deer will be up to feed and food sources can be a great spot to sit. I like hunting with a light coating of snow as it makes it really easy to spot movement in the heavy brushy areas.

I love deer hunting in the snow! Deer can be seen further away as long as there is snow on the ground and if its not coming down like the mega strorm then they should move just the same if not better since it is cool enough not impede movement unlike todays 70 degree forcast. I shot my first deer in sleet/snow. Something magical about the woods when snow is falling.

I think everything about deer hunting just seems a little better with temps in the 20's and some snow.

To me it seems like the deer move more, they are certainly easier to see and you're right there is something a little magical with some snow flakes falling. You get back to the shack and the coffee tastes a little warmer, the stories seem a little better and it makes deer hunting a lot more fun.

In all my time hunting when it snow or when there is snow. The deer will still move but just later in the day then normal. If its really cold then they will move sometime in the afternoon.

If its a blizard, they will not move unless they are spooked. I've notice that deer will not move around when there site or noise isn't working to there adventage.
