      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 .

I got a good place to hunt its a corn picked corn field next to a large private managed woods. There is no trees in the fence line on my side. but the hill slops very hard in to the fence line at one point. The same point where all the deer funnel out. So if things work out for me and I can go second season shot gun i'm thinking of taking my goose blind and seting it at the crest of the hill a 100 yards off the fence line. I can shoot out of it laying down I've done it turkey hunting and it would blend in awsome. Anyone know of anyone trying this before?

Here's how I see it. Bob and Jethrow are walking back for lunch. Bob says, hey see the lump over on the hill? I'll bet you that is a deer laying there. Jethrow put up the gun and say's yes, I just saw it move.

I would put a lot of orange on it!

Any shrubs on that hill? Just nestle into the shrubs and break up your outline, you'll be fine. I don't think I would want to laydown on the ground the last week of November, especially for any length of time. If there is no brush pile, make one this week.....

I got a heat pad for the blind. Plus I plan to keep my head out of the blind and yes I will blend blaze into the blind. Also my brother might not like me draging brush into his feild.

Ha! I hope that Bob and Jethrow are smart hunters and are sure of their intended target! If not, maybe they shouldn't be in the woods.

I'd blaze up my blind for sure, and keep the eyes peeled! Good luck!

tipup...i did something similar about 10 years ago on a chunk of land we were hunting.

there was about a 15 acre woodlot in the middle of a 2 mile section. Pretty much all fields around it, but a few small fencelines came off of it. deer would run out of the woods, go about 200 yards and then stop and look back into the woods. Then across the field they would go on their trail. Well, their trail was in a lower spot in the field. So, one morning I set up about 30 yards uphill from their trail. I could not see anything at the edge of the field because of the slope of the land. When I saw deer they were going to be close. We sent a guy to push the woods. 7 deer came up on my right and being righthanded I had to sit up as I was laying on my stomach facing the woods. I sat up and shot the biggest doe. Off they ran while I quickly reloaded my muzzleloader. I laid back down quickly and shortly later here came 2 deer and they stopped right on their trail and looked back into the woods- just like we had drawn up. I took the bigger doe and quickly reloaded. About 3 minutes later, a buck stopped in the same row I was laying in. A quick shot and down he went.

3 deer in under 10 minutes with a muzzleloader. (We were party hunting.)

It will work- sometimes you have to think out of the ordinary to take a deer! Good luck and let us know how it goes!!!

    • Grainbelt - the rig is 6 years old.  Is it likely that a solder joint would go bad after that time?  I have another TV on comcast and I hope that if it still works I can eliminate the cable system as the problem.  Is it likely - reasonable - that the TV would crump out after 6 years?  I have no idea what the life expectancy is on these things.
    • Go to the menu screen if you can and you can use a flashlight and shine it into the screen and look close to see if you can see any video. If you can then the backlight LED's quit working and your video bd is good. If you cannot see anything the video bd may not working or possibly it isn't receiving power from the power supply. I had a bad solder joint on the connection between the LED driver and power supply. The whole connector wiggled through the bd from bad soldering. I touched up the solder joints with a soldering pencil and it has not blanked out since.  My TV is a Vizio 55. Most likely you can find parts on hsolist. Good info on how to fix HD TV's on youtube.
    • A free pass to help control the grays?
    • *BANG*!       
    • these get a free pass  
    • The viewpoints would be a lot "different" but that doesn't necessarily mean it would be "better."  The military must think a volunteer force is better than mandatory enlistment, or it would probably go back to its old way of doing things.
    • No Dave, I have never worn a flag bikini or stuck one in my hot dog!  Stuck my hot dog in a bikini once but that's another story,  nice try!
    • First time we have had this one in the yard if that's what it is. Not marked off in my book. 
    • Probably a bad board that was discontinued the month you bought the TV and no replacements are available because a million other people had the same problem.  I have had 2 Samsung plasma screen televisions go out in similar matter.  Fortunately i had a replacement warranty from Best Buy that replaced the first one and when the second one went out within a year they refunded my money and i went LG.  I believe it was a power supply board that was the issue with mine.  MY brother in law had the same TV and the video board went out in his but luckily i was able to swap the video board out of my defective television and his is still working.  Keep in mind this is when a 42"-50" television was $2,000 so a guy can understand the frustration when you only got 16 months out of it.
    • If you find a deal use whatever you saved to buy/make an extended run tank.  Things are worth their weight in gold.  Nothing better than ripping the starter cord once and never having to worry about it the rest of the weekend.  Delchcchi made a good point as well about having a place locally who is able to do warranty work.  Honda's notoriously are well built and I've never had a problem with mine but you never know.
