      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 .

Doe to Buck ratio???

Recommended Posts

This has probably been discussed on here before, but would like to hear opinions. We at our camp don't usually have much of a problem seeing bigger bucks (150 pound 8 pter or better) on our hunting land. Not to say every day, but within the season, usually 6-7 stories of a good one or a dead one smirk But this past year, only 2. Tons of sign, but no Mr. Big. I personally saw 34 does/ fawns before I put one down on the last saturday evening. I have heard of 3 to 1, but it seems like way more than that around our place. The neighbor doesn't hunt so it is like a sanctuary over there, but usually chasing brings them through. Anyways, ideas on what is going on?

Could be a number of things... multiple doe/fawn sightings are difficult to track for one. You could be seeing the same groups. A food source may have changed. Your neighbor's sanctuary may be just that. Moving at night. Late-standing crops. Who knows. My guess is the bucks are around, you're just not seeing them. Put a camera or two up. Up until I shot my deer, I only saw 2 bucks prior. One of my trail cam's showed at least 8 different bucks coming in to eat acorns. I sat that stand a half dozen times and never saw an antler. I always thought the ratio was way out of whack but after using cameras for a season, I believe it to be much more balanced. No where near 1:1 but 2 1/2-3:1 sounds about right.
