      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 .

Crop Update?

Recommended Posts

Lindy, I just looked at todays ag report. They say that 11% of corn and 56 % of coy have been harvest across the state. We got hit pretty hard last week with a classic 18 hour blizzard. I can't seem to be able to hyper-link the report on here but, if you just Google "South Dakota corn harvest report" or "High Plains/Midwest Ag Journal" you should be able to see for yourself. When and where are ya goin?

Thanks for the info Pac. I will check that out.

Me and a buddy were out over Halloween and did decent for 2 guys. We were hunting west of Aberdeen. At that time basically all the corn was standing. Planning to head back out, but was hoping to time it after some more corn came down.

Well the farmers are combining every day, and it is coming out, but it is SLOW. 95% of the corn is wet and needs to be dried and it is just taking a long time. Good news is it looks like we will have good weather for at least the next 10 days, so there shouldn't be much stopping them.. I would say around here we are around the 50% mark for corn harvest.

from keloland.com on 11/18/2008

The corn harvest continues to fall behind normal in South Dakota because of wet ground.

The weekly report shows only 59 percent of the corn crop has been harvested. The five-year average for this date is 91 percent.

The Agricultural Statistics Service said much of the corn being harvested has a high moisture content, so it has to be dried at the elevator or on the farm.

Twenty-five percent of the state reports surplus moisture.

Seventy-two percent is adequate

I think there will be a lot of corn taken out in the next week. The farmers will definately take advantage of this nice weather.

I hunted around the huron area this last weekend. they got about 4" of snow on Friday night which made hunting a blast on Saturday. It really bunched up the birds and when I found birds I found lots of them.

However there is still corn in around the area, and with the snow I am sure it will be there for a while. This week is supposed to be pretty dry though so hopefully they can finish getting at whats left.

    • If you're rolling with 4 and a half inch car speakers which seem pretty standard for wheelhouses, you're just not gonna get much for bass out of the things, especially if they are el cheapos.  Which also seems pretty standard for wheelhouses.
    • Yup... you're right. 3000# for both brakes and licensing
    • Electrics augers are crazy nice in wheelhouse. I know that propane and 4-strokes give off WAY less fumes then the augers of yesteryear... but the new auger setups essentially have a slush copter built in with the reverse option.
    •   Not a chance that Nils is closing, quite the opposite as they can't make them fast enough. The Tanaka powerhead and transmission made by Hitachi (great product btw)was discontinued a few years back along with many other Tanaka power tools.   I thought that might effect Nils but timing and trend of going electric plus new higher torque drills and lithium higher amp hr batteries made the transition seamless.      
    • Strange to win 3 OT games, I think we have or had the worst 3 on 3 ot record in the league. Also imagine how screwed this team would be without Staal, what a gift. Hated that 3 year term when he signed but kind of wish he had an extra year or two on this contract. 
    • My budget would be more like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Raptor-Whisper-Air-Rifle-177/dp/B01AMAO86Y/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1513086150&sr=8-2&keywords=22%2Bpellet%2Bgun&th=1&psc=1   And you can get this one in either .177 or .22 evidently.
    • A gun is a gun, I like them all! This one is BA but a lot more than I personally would spend on an air rifle..... https://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/tactical-armada-22-pcp-1000-fps-028478145122.do?sortby=ourPicks  
    • Thanks for the extra pics.  Always nice to see how other houses are built.  Enjoy your new house.
    • The slush copter works great until you get into the 4' ice on LOW.  I still use the slush bucket in combination with the slush copter, the Nils auger likes to throw ice/slush and it keeps more off the floor and the walls.
    • Is that paneling on the walls and ceiling or what is it and where did you get it? Thanks.
