      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 .

In Carlos Avery wear as much Blaze Orange as you possibly can. Walk as deep in the woods as you dare.

I would even say when you are walking out - Make noise

There hasn't been nearly the pressure on Carlos this year as in years past and if you do your homework there are alot of out of the way places where a person can park, walk in and have the place to himself. Do your home work and have a backup plan in case someone shows up before you and is in your spot. At 29,000 acres there aought to be somewhere you can hunt without the masses.

Dnr site, county plat books and even atlas's will have the roads and boundries. If you do some driving around there are alot of dead end roads that but up to it. Most parking is on the side of the road but there are areas with designated parking lots as well.

If you go into Carlos, make sure you pay attention. I was bow hunting an area next to a cattail swamp a few years ago. Guy shot a bird out of a tree close to me - didn't see me - I wont ever go back. Be safe.

Not many bow hunters wear orange, and not many law abiding hunters shoot a bird out of a tree.

Like I said; just be careful. I'd hate to read about a fellow FM'er being bagged rather than being the bagger.

I was out this morning and saw a fair amount of pressure along the main roads, 97, broadway in Flake and 22 in Wyoming but when traveling along some of the lesser known spots only came across 2 vehicals in eight different areas. So depending on where you plan to hunt there are open spots with little to no pressure. Do the homework and you'll be able to get into areas without a ton of hunters.

I was out there yesterday afternoon for the last of the gun hunt. Although it was a little busy, I was able to find a spot where I was left alone. Unfortunately the deer left me alone as well. smile

Not much shooting and a lot of long faces driving out. Oh well there is always Zone 1

But I cant complain, I got my Crow Wing County doe in the freezer and I was antler hunting anyway. It was better than watching the queens hand the game over.

I hunted it last year and will do whatever I can to never go back there. People firing over your head, sounds like a war zone at first light. Way to many people and way to many that have no clue. Try to find some land another place if you can.

I dont think I would have the guts to go out there on opening morning. (or any morning before light for that matter) I have heard a few horror stories myself. By the second weekend, most of the ya-hoos are gone. I will go over for the afternoon hunts if I am back in town late in the week. Not too bad then...
