      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 wear all my layers with my bibs and coat for regular hunting. Over that, i wear cover pants and coat (not insulated)white camo. Purchase anything that will blend in with the cover you are hunting.

I wear layers of camo clothing and on the outer shell I wear a white coverup suit white facemask and hat. Don't be afraid to hunt with what you have for gear(camo) you will still be able to get action just try and use something for a backdrop like a tree,bush,clump of grass etc.

I dress as warm and possible with layers and such and then I lay under a White Bed sheet I pile some snow over get comfortable and wait to see what happens. I think it keeps some heat it with the snow on top! Good luck! (Bring hand warmers)

I wear my camo cold gear and then put on the white camo from cabelas. with the tree branches on it. I started out with the white camo poncho from fleet farm, I think it was military surplus. I still have it and use it on my legs since I don't have the camo bottoms yet.........I was reading a really interesting article in Predator Masters that talked about how coyotes see color. I have saved it and will re-read it a few more times and report that back here. It was very interesting. The biggest things is to breakup your outline. They can see greens, but lots of their colors fade to tans

i have camo bibs that turn inside out and are white. And i bought a white jacket from scheels along with a white facemask and gloves. Thats what i wear if there is just snow when i'm going to be sitting. Otherwise if theres some black dirt showing ill wear my white jacket with black carhart bibs to blend in a little better. I always wear a white jacket since thats the most part of my body that is going to be moving and the white jacket blends in really good with the snow and is hard to detect movement. I normally am set up in a wide open field situation. When i do set up near or by cover i wear white bibs and camo jacket to blend in with the surroundings.

go buy a white painters suit from fleet farm ... one piece full body camo only spend seven bucks... grab a can of black spray paint and an extra suit then spraypaint sticks on one and leave one all white then you have your choice! works awesome

How long does it take for paint smell to go away? Also i tried using those one piece suits but they always ripped all over from putting on and off. (yours might be a different fabric though)

i've tried those suits also and mine have always ripped. I spent maybe 70 bucks total for white bibs and jacket. The jacket is thinner with a wind breaker type style inside with breathable mesh. Just got a big enough size to throw some layers on underneath and i'm good to go

i have a go-to layering system i wear when predator hunting so i can shed layers if were doing a spot and stalk or post/drive style hunt. as far as snow camo, im a HUGE fan of the Natgear snow camo. that stuff flat out rocks in open country and in the woods. ive got some of the northwoods snow camo too but it has a blueish hue to it so i usually just bring it along incase somebody else forgets theirs.

I am poor well maybe cheap and this has worked well for me. My gun if fully black thou. I have been thinking about painting the stock and maybe stripping the barrel with tape?

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!
    • About as good as a day can get. Congrats to both of you. Your turn next pumper?
    • saw the first frog today!!!  
    • look caned turkey already!!!  
    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around!
