      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 .

We are in a lottery area so I will be cut off at one deer and then it is back to bow hunting. My family almost finished off the first deer I got with the bow so hopefully I will have a little luck on my side this weekend.

Hartner, honk when you drive by, I'm on the corner of 4 and 25 on your way to Elba at the 4 way stop if you are coming from Plainveiw, can't miss the house, you will know which one. Looking forward to a great 3B. I think its going to be pretty good. Lots of crops are getting taken out as we speak. I'm getting pumped.

I will be in town during the school hour so I will give a honk by the school. My relatives live off of 4th right next to the house that puts up all of the inflatable decorations in the front yard. Hopefully I can swing by and show ya a big one on the way out of town.

My wife and I said that all through High School, it came up for sale and we bought it. Too bad that 10 acre pasture isn't 10 acres of woodland connected to another 100 acres. I'd hunt out my back door and be in heaven.

Trigger,

I drove by your house every day I hunted down there. I think you might have even been outside the one day I drove by. I hunt about 2-3 miles away. Go towards Elgin and take the first left. I saw 2 nice bucks opening morning, and as of last Thursday they were still running. There is also a monster that has been seen there.

I might be going down that way when muzzleloading starts.

Good luck in 3B

Cool, I was outside alot last weekend. Living there I get to see all the big bucks in the back of trucks when they stop at the 4 way going to and from Elba. I had hit a buck opening morning with the bow so I was done hunting early. It wasn't a good hit and I know it wasn't lethal, went out later and looked for but found both halves to the arrow and I know that I just grazed its back, so he is still running with a sore back, but anyway, thats why I was home. Normally I would have been gone for most of the day. Saw quite a few large deer go by. Jim, you are hunting on some great ground. There are some nice bucks around. When you hunted I'm sure there was a lot of corn in the area yet, it is really getting picked at a good rate right now, thats why I think 3B will be good. I also bought a ML and am looking forward to all that season as well if I don't shoot a big buck during 3B. All that great buck land around me and I'm going driving 25 miles to hunt private land in Wabasha with my family. Going to be fun, can't wait.

Yes there was way too much standing corn. We did not even see a deer last Friday. They had just started to pick the corn friday morning. Hopefully they have more corn out by this weekend.

The only bad thing where we hunt is that the corn keeps them around. Once the corn is picked, we do not see that many. They all go into the park where they are safe.

Yeah, Carly Park is quite the deer Sanctuary, the number of deer that get hit down the road from me increases dramatically during the deer season due to deer getting pushed into the park and the excessive chasing.

I'm taking off at 10am and wanted to wish everyone good luck this weekend. Shoot straight and hopefully next week I'll see some great pictures on here from you guys. If anyone is down in Elba swing into Johnnys for the Vikes game and say hi and grab some free food, we always sit at the pool table.

    • Just looked up the yellow. Definitely not, no white on wings and way too yellow. And all the pictures of a cowbird on Google don't show a cowbird with the rusty colored ring on it's back.
    • Spending most of my time in Dallas these days due to my job.  Will be fishing the Otter County Area in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait!  Just wondering what you guys are seeing?  I am assuming the Bass are in and will be in their late summer patterns which to me means that you could find 'em anywhere.  One of the questions my friend had (I guess watching KVD in Elite Series and  Major League fishing -- I think his recent win on the Elite Series on St Lawrence River was mainly a drop shot) was jerk baits for this time of year.  Frankly, I use mostly jigs and plastics.  Watching KVD, I think I should give jerk baits more a try.
    •  It looks yellow in the bad picture but it's a very rusty medium brown. Definatly in the blackbird family though I think. I need a decent camera. Eye guy, you told me about a not too expensive digital camera with a good zoom lens didn't you? I don't think that's it. The ring on its back is the same rust color. 
    • Of course!  Yaller headed B bird, like the Duffster said.   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Yellow-headed_Blackbird/id
    • Yellow headed blackbird?
    • It looks way to light brown to be a cowbird but I see nothing else in my bird book it could be??? I know this is a bad picture but it's the best I can do. The thing is so tame I can almost walk right up to it and it never goes away for long.
    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy.
