      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Deer in ND

Recommended Posts

Went to the advisory meeting in VC.Randy Kreil did a great presentation on the GNF 5 year deer management study that ended in 2008.The GNF flew the entire state in Jan. of this year since there was snow cover pretty much statewide.

They then flew a couple of units again in March to compare.In some units they counted 35% less deer than in Jan.So they figure the herd took a hit this past winter.But he figures most units are still at or above management goals.

They also talked about the early doe season in Sept in the units in the NE.They said it was a success.Since there were a lot of extra doe tags left in the mule deer units in the southern badlands......they will try an early season in 4F I believe.It is the unit around Bowman.The early season will open and run concurrent with Antelope season in that unit to let antelope hunters fill the extra doe tags down there.

The GNF will be doing there mule deer survey starting next week.The deer in the southern badlands south of I-94 should be OK......but they said the winter was tougher north of 94.
