      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 .

Morning, especially at first light when the gobblers start to hammer away up on the roost. Gets the blood a pumping good! The woods start to wake up with all the other types of birds start to chime in.If you get a good calm morning with no wind,it's awesome! But with that being said, I've killed more birds between 9:00 and noon then right around fly down time.

Just can't beat being there when first light comes, watching the world come to life. The turkey gobbles of the spring woods are an added plus. Can't beat it!

That being said, like paintbrush, I've shot more birds later in the day...guess it's all good.

First light for me too.

The thrill of having Pepe LePue walk within a couple feet or the racoons fighting, rooster pheasants drumming at first light, and of course the main reason we're out there and everything the turkeys do first thing in the morning.

I've been known to be out an hour or better before legal shooting hours. The woods can go from dead silence to a gradual "coming to life" party.

You gotta love it.

My favorite time is morning I like to bring first timers out take them to my secret spot fill them with doubt about how lucky we would be to even here a gobble sneek into the blind a hour and half before shooting time still filling them with doubt knowing whats going to happen then when the first animals first start moving give a few soft yelps and the blind start shaking from multiple toms rolling gobbles like thunder within 100 yard to see the look on their faces still makes me giggle. Cant wait drawn for the first week its gonna be good
