      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 .

Getting away from the crowds?

Recommended Posts

We have a group of 13 people and have hunted the same neck of the woods for about 20 years. This year, because of all of the people that hunt opening weekend, we decided to go up a week later. My question is does anyone else do this? What kind of luck have you had? and Do you change your strategies from hunting opener?

Thanks

DL

Back when we had the split season we always took the late season, the bucks were in full rut and overall hunting was better with less people but that was up in Gods country, ( Babbitt, Ely, Embarrass)

Not sure If I would wait a week later but wait until all the weekend hunters head home, a lot of times mid-week hunting is like having the woods to yourself.

We are like the others have stated that we always hunted second weekend and had less pressure and I believe that we had better hunting. But with the changes this year with only one season we as a group are just bow and muzzy hunting this year. Less pressure and more time.

Last year I hunted both weekends... my roomie and I each shot a nice buck opening weekend but I saw a lot more deer the 2nd weekend. I think if you put the time in you'll do fine. Less deer but less pressure on the 2nd weekend. More deer, more pressure the first weekend, but those other hunters may or may not push deer to you.

My personal preference is less hunters because I HATE hunting near other people. Ruins the experience even if they are courteous and ethical hunters

Hunted the second week a few times in the past - it is great - no hunters and the deer are back moving again since they are not being pressured. If given the choice, I would hunt from opener to the first Wednesday then go back home but come up again the second Wednesday and hunt the rest of the last week.
