      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 .

I feel sorry......

Recommended Posts

I feel really sorry for all of you that sit around and cheer on the Vikes every Sunday. I don't understand how people can waste a beautiful Fall Sunday afternoon watching the Minnesota Vikings? Boggles my mind every week. Thank god for Fantasy football (I can choose my own team, not Mr. Wolf choosing my team for me), cuz the Vikes continue to tank every year. The Fall is for fishing, hunting, or anything outdoors. I feel extremely sorry for all of those who bleed purple every week. Get back to the outdoors and enjoy our beautiful landscape (instead of being all [PoorWordUsage] that the Vikes lost AGAIN......whats new?)

O and after Fall is over.... its time to hit the Ice..... much more pleasing than watching the Vikes choke once more. Get out and enjoy the great state of Minnesota!

Well, unlike you I am not a fair weather fan, the losses aren't any fun, but god willing if we win the big one some day I can say I was there through all of it.

I'm not a fair weather fan........... I'm not a fan at all of the Vikes, never have been. I was raised hunting and fishing in the fall, not watching MN football.

If they make the playoffs I will watch and cheer them on, but I would still rather be hunting or fishing! I'm also glad I can say: I haven't been there through it all........thank god!

And that team would be whomever Green Bay's opponent is. Packers are just as bad or worse team as the Vikes this year.

I am with the first guy. No need to waste time watching the Vikes unless you need a good nap. The brand of football Childress plays makes even the most loyal football fan want to sleep.

And PS I am not a fairweather fan, but I would rather listen to them on the radio while out fishin or something else than sit there and watch them play that boring brand of ball that they play.

I am a huge Vikings fan, I always was, and always will be. I can honestly say, I dont live my life around them though. I dont stop hunting or fishing or whatever to watch them play. Although I will turn the radio on to listen to them play. I wont not make plans because they are on. Although alot of times watching them is my plan. Its a good way to spend time with friends, sit back and have a beer, and yell at the tv!

Go Vikes!!!!

For some reason I like to torture myself weekly and watch them. The pack are just as bad this year and the rest of the division sticks too. But, I love the purple so I watch. It's still fun to Watch AP and see a gleem of hope for the future hopefully.

Otto Man- what are you on?? And can I have some??? And finally last question- can you define "good" for me?? From what I have seen of the Packers, you must have a different meaning of that word. The Vikes are no better, but still rather watch them anyday

    • The gobbler came in and beat the jake down I shot him and five seconds later the hen decoy fell over from not being able to stake it down in the frozen ground.
    • I don't have near the birds featherslayer has. My groups were one gobbler with three or four  hens. There was zero gobbling on the roost both mornings. When they hit the ground there was a lot of gobbling and strutting for a couple of hours. The one I shot this morning answered my calls a  couple of times but was out of sight the whole while. He stopped gobbling for a hour and a half when suddenly there was a gobble and close. I called a little bit and he popped out of the trees about eighty yards away and stood there in full strut and just checked things out. Did some soft calling and here he came in full strut and went right to my jake decoy and gave him a beat down. That was all it wrote for him. Classic case of him losing his hens and coming to check out that hen he had answered after flydown. This is a little area I'm hunting and I had let a jake go last year and I'm hoping this was him. Good luck to the rest of our teammates.
    • On my first sit right now. 40 birds in the field, at least 5 shooters, 2 of those are very nice. Think they have to come by me to roost. Fingers crossed.
    • Good job buddy. Glad to see you wiped that skunk off the new bow.
    • Way to close the deal guys!
    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
