      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 .

No deer this morning

Recommended Posts

So after two mornings of good action in a new spot, all of a sudden I see absolutely nothing this morning. I did notice a stand about 60yds from mine that someone else put up, but I dont know that it wasnt already there. it could have been and i may have just missed it. I cant figure this out. Was it the warm weather and the cloud cover? That is honestly the only thing i can think of.

Maybe they are busting you on your entry exit route. It isnt hard to burn out a stand if one isnt careful.

I cant hunt it now until after this coming weekend. Maybe things will get back to normal.

i agree that they might be busting you coming out of the stand but we also have to look at how close we are to the rut and all the deer are locked down.... movement always sucks during that time of year

I hunted this last friday night and saturday morning and didn't see any deer. Saturday night I also did not see any deer during hunting hours, however I did stay out for a few hours after sunset to see if anything was moving. Of course about 45 minutes after complete darkness I saw the outlines of 5 deer moving through. I hope they start moving during hunting hours so I can get one

I dont understand how deer in one part of the state can be fully in the the rut and another they have yet to really start.

Ive also gone a long time in one stand without seeing anything. It is just weird to be having good action and then all of a sudden nothing.

The rut goes as the Does go. Right now, in my area, the does are not being very receptive. Last night one bolted for the woods at the sight of a small buck. 15 miles down road, those does are being more receptive. It was just picking up when the weather turned and we got this little heat wave, I think that it will pick up considerable in the next couple of days when the front goes through.

Like 96 said it all depends on the does. If one goes into heat early someone will always say the rut is on in October when really one doe is providing all the action. We have had seasons where one guy will see all kinds of action and another guy 2-300 yards away doesn't see a deer. You really just have to be in the right place when that hot doe comes by. Over the years I have seen the best rutting action from November 8th through the 12th, but different parts of the state can vary from region to region.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
