      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 .

Archery Elk Hunt

Recommended Posts

My buddy and i are thinkging about trying a public land hunt, we were thinkging about an OTC tag doesnt matter if its Cow or Bull, just trying something different. What are some areas with good public land opportunites and where we could at least see some elk. Were not trophy hunters just looking to hunt something different. Being in minnesota any help would be great. Thanks

I would recommend the Gravelly Range if you want to see lots of elk and trophy potential is not critical. Lots of nice animals, easy public access, no real threat of grizzlies. This is the area north of West Yellowstone and just east of the town of Ennis. Big, rolling hills, not real tough to hunt.

My second area would be the Madison range, from the west side. The Madison river divides the Gravely Range from the Madison range. The Taylors Fork area is the most beautiful country, but there are lots of bears. Head north into the wolf creel, indian creek and bear creek country and you will be into lots of elk, with a better trophy potential, but a little tougher hunting, terrain wise.

Lastly, the Fort Peck/CMR areas has a lot of elk, and its wide open breaks country. If you access by boat, you open up a huge area to hunt. A lot of guys from MN hunt this and it is now a draw only area. Some of the biggest bulls in Montana come from here and archer success ratio is very high.
