      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 .

IM HOOKED

Recommended Posts

I have been coyote hunting before but never had any luck. On monday I was deer hunting and sitting in my stand. Heres the scenario. River in front of me 100 yrds. big thicket 60 yrds to the left and a plowed field out to the thicket. I was in a little peice of woods with a hill to my right with a tree farm on top of the hill. I could here crunching on the hill but to my right and behind me. soon enough the sound went infront of me but still to my right where I couldnt turn and shoot. then the coyote began to trot towards me. Im a bow hunter and that gets me excited but my heart started jumping out of my chest. every step she took got me more excited. then she got within 5yrds. and she smelled me. she bolted and it was on. she was jumping over downed trees and weaving around bushes. I put a round high on her left side obviously passed through and in the process caught the lung. she ran 5 yrds fell down. got back up ran ten yrds and then fell down and died. I am hooked it was a great experience. I have a couple questons though.

1) the female weighed roughly 40lbs. What is a large coyote weigh?

2) what equipment am I in need for now. lets just say I have nothing.

Congrats! Wait until you actually call one (or more) in...then you will really have an addiction going, along with a great sport to enjoy all winter. I started coyote/fox hunting last year and can't wait to get going now that the ducks vanished and deer season will be over soon.

another question for ya guys. how many phesants do you think an adult coyote could eat. Our phesant population has gone down a lot but we saw 10 turkeys (6 toms, cant wait til spring) which our area has never had turkeys in it. Are the coyotes eating phesants or could the turkeys run of the phesants?

I actually read a study that shows coyotes help pheasants more than hurts pheasants. A coyote will eat skunks, raccoons, and all the other "egg" eaters.

I am not saying coyotes don't eat pheasants because they do.

A coyotes diet is going to consist more of rabbits, and mice, depending on the time of the year.

To help pheasant populations, you should focus more on your fox, skunks, and raccoons.
