      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'm seeing more and more Turkeys in Murray co. The dgermstad lake area and Lake Shetec area seem to be getting huntable populations. I see them over by the Pipestone co line too.

I would love to see more turkey habitat in the ground in Murray co. Don't be afraid to start your own chapter, with hard work and a good group of hunters you will be amazed how easy it is to get started.

I'm the treasurer of our local DU start up and we wrote a check for around 15 grand each of our first four years and are continuing to grow.

Good luck finding the right group. Hans

To start our local chapter of DU we got a ton of support from chapters around us. We also had a good regional director, and a long history of DU support through our local gulf outing.

If I were Starting a new NWTF chapter, I would start by contacting national and get the number of a contact person close by, then I would contact the nearest local chapter, go to a meeting and make sure you are not duplicating areas or sponsors. Find out the best place for your meetings and banguet and give it a go.

We started with a mailing to past and current members in the area(which we got from national) that stated we were looking for committee members for a new chapter. It did't take long to find a good group of guys and gals.

NWTF might be harder get going and they might have different rules to get a charter ,that's why I would attend a local banquet or go through the closest chapter first. You don't want to step on any toes, and more than likely these existing members will be attending your first banguets and be early sponsors.

Our DU chapter, Sportman's club, and NWTF often meet on the same night at the same place in Northfield. We get great support from our PF friends too. You'll find you see the same faces over and over again-but that's half the fun.

Keep us all posted about what you find out. Hans

    • Thank you for setting this up and keeping track. It was a lot of fun to be somewhat in contention. I don’t really care  one way or the other for the lucky dog. The one good thing is it let more guys get in a week late and still have a shot at winning. Thanks again
