      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 .

How to go about hunting "A" buck?

Recommended Posts

Just for the sake of discussion and to get some ideas, I have a hypothetical situation for you:

You spot a huge buck. You have permission to hunt SOME of the ground in the area where you anticipate this buck is living. It receives moderate hunting pressure during rifle season, but limited for archery/muzzy seasons. Deer DO NOT winter in your area so finding the sheds is almost impossible.

Being it is mid-late November and you are done hunting for the year, what do you do know? Seek hunting permission on other properties in the area? Setup a bunch of trail cams? Hit the woods as much as possible to try and locate his core area now? Setup a plan for strategic food sources/plots for next year? etc...

***This situation could take place in many different types of areas/terrain. If you have specific experience hunting/patterning a buck, please leave information regarding the type of area your experiences took place ie...farm country, big woods, mostly treeless prairie etc. Let's try and make this a thread we can all learn from.

i also have permission to hunt some of the area he is living in. i have found multiple sets of tracks and am pretty sure i can identify his tracks from others. i have found multiple scrapes and rubs in the area that i assume are his and i have talkted to a construction worker that is working in a gravel pit behind the woods that has seen him multiple times bedded down on the top of a wooded hill i have been trying to get him all bow season and both shotgun seasons(i can hunt both because im under 18) i have yet to find him. all i can say is keep trying. read magazines watch hunting on tv. without those two all i would have is a picture of a dream buck but by reading and studying i have got myself a goal! good luck with your deer!
