      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 .

Young Birds

Recommended Posts

Went out yesterday from 1 - 4:30 and was able to get 2 JR Roosters. I hit 4 wma and only ran into 5 birds the whole time I was out 3 JR roosters and 2 hens. Thinking the numbers are way down from last year but their still is standing corn up making it easy, plus last year I was able to get out alot more. South Metro

We got out yesterday and ran into about 40 birds (20 of which were roosters) all of which were on public land, shot 3 and should have had a limit for three of us. One of the roosters was very young, tail feathers were not complete and still had some brown feathers on the belly. Kind of late for those young birds to still be around, but the late corn really gives them a place to hide.

I spoke with a neighbor the other day that hunted some public land S of Alexandria, not sure where, that stated they had never seen that many birds on public before, ever. He did say the farmers were combining some nearby crops so that probaly had a lot to do with it. Other than when I ran into a few roosters S of Litchfield a few weeks ago it was one of the rare instances where I've heard favorable reports.

Assuming that "south of Alex" was Pope Co., we do still have some corn in even still. Not like last week, but there's still a bit. Birds seen on public lands are going up though as a result of the field activity and I'd agree, there's still the odd young rooster harvested w/ plenty of brown remaining.

I guess I was more going towards how hard the spring was on the hatch, and that there was a late hatch as well. Or my outing was chance to run into 3 JR roosters. But as stated the numbers are down overall, still some good hunting to be had.
