      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 .

Prairie dog hunting

Recommended Posts

yes sir I'd agree or any way side road in SD. Stop at a farm and ask the owner if they would care if you went on their property and blasted dogs. I guarantee they will be more then happy to let you kill as many as you can get a round into

Anyone ever see the video when they get the vaccum truck to remove the dog's I can't remeber where or when I saw it but it was a sewer vaccum truck they mounted a camera into and use it to suck the dogs out of their hole laughed till I almost wet myself.

I have some friends that go to Winner, SD every year to hunt them. I haven't gone but they seem to have a great time, lots of dogs.

Ha sorry man I'm just really excited. This is my first gun and I have never even gone hunting once (besides air rifle hunting, lol). My buddy and I found a WMA near Henderson that has small game hunting available plus there is a campsite right near the river across the street. If you ever want to camp out with us sometime for a hunting/fishing weekend let me know.

Unless your talking about the turkey refuge off of 19 there. Haven't ever tried that spot before, but it seems like that one could be good for all sorts of four and two legged kriters. That one is down in the valley nice looking area.

I've never seen them charge but I have seen them fling their dead comrades with a trebuchet. A 12 gauge is handy when they do that.

I go through the Henderson area quite often and I'm not aware of any WMA with a Campground across the street next to the river.

If you're talking about the park across the railroad tracks and next to the PV Elevator (Grain elevator), the area across the road is a Wildlife Sanctuary (Ney Environmental Center)and not open to public hunting. You'll have to go back to the top of the hill on HWY 19 to the north side of the road to find the WMA portion of the Ney EC.

Keep in mind that many WMA are closed to hunting of unprotected species such as Coyotes from March 1 until I think August.

Yep I know that theres a time restriction on some of them. As for the campsite one I think he's talking about the one just outside of Belle Plain, but now that I reread it maybe not. Minne which one are you talking about.

There might be camping available at the Ney Center (not 100% certain on that) and the river is 1/2 mile away below the hill. The camping that I'm aware of is below the hill and across the road from the Sanctuary portion of the Ney Center.

From the park/campground that I'm thinking of, there is a turkey release site straight north on the gravel road that runs along the base of the hill. Is this the turkey area you're referring to?

The WMA across the road from the Ney Center runs down the hillside but stops at the road. The best way to find out is to look at a detailed map from the DNR that shows the actual boundries.

We had our follow-up meeting for our turkey banquet and a couple of the guys who are more familiar with the area said part of that area is a state park that's open to public hunting. I guess it isn't very well marked.

Ya learn something new every day.
