      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 .

Belle Plaine Area

Recommended Posts

Wondering how the pheasant counts are in the Belle Plaine area. I've got a young dog and would like to take her out somewhere close to home sometime this week. Belle Plaine is pretty close to home.

I know of a few areas down there but am curious how the counts are. Anyone seeing birds in the Pheasant's Forever areas?

Thanks.

There is still a good deal of corn standing in the area although it looks like it will be coming out soon.

I was on private land in the area near 2 of those WMAs that you speak of yesterday. We flushed 1 rooster and 2 hens but had no shot on the rooster. There was a corn field right next to this ditch line that we were hunting but the corn had been combined about 20 or 30 rows in on the outside.

So there are a few birds around but we may have to wait for the corn to be gone.

Dave- if you where out by my place, we won't have that corn out for at least another week.

I was a little west of you Brian. Do you think everyone in the area has at least a week to go probably?

1-2 weeks left for everybody , it's all depedant on the weather coming through here this week and weekend. Corn has been holding at 18-21% moisture and not drying down much ,if at all ,even with the warm weather recently. Combine hard for 6 hours and then wait for the dryer to catch up frown

On the bright side,I've seen some good bird counts though

Lots of corn still in, in the BP area.

My father-in law was looking at 19% when they where going strong.

If a guy was to go a little to the south west it seemed little more corn was out.

Was out in the Belle Plaine area hunting public land this morning. I got to a spot and parked at 8:45am. By 9:15-9:30 it seemed everyone was out expecting to get the best spots. I didn't put up any birds and think next week I am going to have to pop in about $60 in gas and head farther west to avoid the chaos.
