      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 .

As far as I know there is nothing about a blind. You, of course, have to be in orange, but after what I did on the "Early Anterless Season" I'd put some kind of orange outside of the blind. I was picking my way through a thick stand of young aspen and pines when I finally noticed I was walking right to a ground blind. It was totally brushed in on the top and bottom and who ever was inside never gave a whistle or a sign that I was "sneaking up" on them. It wasn't sticking out like a sore thumb and I got close enough to see the silhouette of a person through the mesh windows. blush The person must have watched me for a good 40 minutes because I was moving pretty slowly. Well, after feeling pretty dumb, I got to thinking...if a deer happened to walk inbetween the two of us during the time I didn't see the blind...jeeesh!

I know I wouldn't sit inside one during gun season without throwing some orange out there.

I've never seen a law about it but I agree with 89, I will have something orange hanging near mine this weekend. Foolish not too.

I usually put a couple of strips of orange duck tape on each side of the blind. Works good and has never been a problem with the deer.

I see on pg 78 in regs. all it says is blaze orange would be a good idea, for sure put some blaze on it doesnt look like it`s a law but safety first.
