      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 .

Full Moon-Time of Day

Recommended Posts

Well obviously it's over now till next month, but my favorite month's full moon did not turn out quite like I had hoped. When the days were approaching I thought it was going to be the best full moon we have had in a few years. We had warm weather for comfortable hunting, clear skies leading up to the full moon days, plenty of snow covering the fields, and fairly low wind speeds for a more than favorable calling set up. everything was looking fine but it was the warm weather that ended up ruining it. Who would of thought we would of been able to complain about rain ruining the moon in feb.? Well back to hunting during daylight hours now, so thats brings up my question, What is everyones favorite time of day to hunt? I generally try to go whenever I can which usually translates into evening hunts, but it seems like there is more activity in the morning. What do ya'll think?

I have found that they move more in the morning than in the late afternoon hours. I don't have any idea why this would be. Either way i still prefer to hunt them at night

There are actual studies that show coyotes are more active from the hours of 10:00 in the morning till 2:00 in the afternoon on full moon periods.

The last full moon, we hunted all day, and see 28 coyotes, and called in 9, it just shows that they are a very unpredictable animal, and hunting all day can be good

Best is to night hunt them, but otherwise mid morning seems to be allright for seeing them. I was out in NDak the febuary moon, and those seem to be out best in the am until 2pm. Shot 5 that week and went back last sat and sunday and got 4 more, with few misses. Might go back for the March moon, we had super wind the night we hunted at night. Did call in a 6pack the only not so windy call, one loner in the hurricane calls.
