      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 .

Recommended Posts

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?

I think when using a blind you have to have some blaze orange on it during gun season.. Make sure you look into regulations on that... Otherwise I think its probably a good idea.

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!!!

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around!
