      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 .

Wii Hunting games

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at getting a Wii. I have played it some with friends and it is a decent time. I want to get a hunting game.

I really enjoy the Big Buck Hunter Pro arcade game where 2 people can play against each other. Are any of the hunting games like this?

I have been doing some searching and found 3.

North American Hunting Extravaganza- 4 players

Cabela's Dangerous Hunts- 1 player

Cabela's Legendary Adventures- 1 player

Any of them any good? Pros? Cons?

I have Cabela's Dangerous Hunts. It's O.K. I've played it a handful of times, but I still go right back to Tiger Woods and Mario Cart!!!

I maybe just haven't spent enough time on it to get stuff unlocked, but it gets kinda frustrating.

We've got Cabela's Dangerous Hunts, Cabela's Legendary Adventures and Cabela's Big Game Hunter. My fav is the Big Game Hunter. Between my boyfriend and I we beat it in a week! We've also got the SEGA Bass Fishing one and I can't get him off of it!!

I have Cabelas Big Game Hunter, fun to play.

For a video game it cool, kinda stinks getting killed by a bear when you make a wrong turn on a trail though.

Good to kill(no pun intended) an hour or so for each segment.

I still keep going back to Guitar Hero.

"North American Hunting Extravaganza- 4 players"

I got it as a gift, it is not as engaging as I hoped, but I haven't played it much since my first impression. The one good thing is it is emi-realistic in that you move around, and there isn't game constantly jumping out at you to empty your clip on. Not Arcade-y at all. Tough to get a clean hit, and you can take your time to actually aim instead of just letting the lead fly.

Another one I heard of is Deer Drive. From what I've seen, it is about as bad of a representation of deer hunting as it gets. Deer are flying across the whole screen in a certain time limit, and you just drop everything. Even Nintendo's Duck Hunt only let you shoot a couple ducks at a time. It would work fine in a bar setting like the Buck Hunter type games, if that is what you are looking for.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
