      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 .

Food source of early season SE Minnesota Toms

With last Fall's turkey hunt fresh on my mind, I went out scouting yesterday in preparation for the April 15 1st season opener. Did not hear or see any signs of birds, feathers, droppings where they were last October. I have to figure out where the flock(s) are. I knew soybeans were long gone, but what are they feeding on this time of year?

Also, some of the land I hunt is high land but then drops fast, then has fairly broad, flat "flood plane" right along the river. What are the odds the turkeys are down low? I always think of up to, field edges etc.

I'm sure some of the alfalfa fields that far south are starting to green up. I would start my search there. Up here in the metro area I think they are feeding more in the woods than in the fields.

Check any fields that are being plowed up now as they may be showing grubs and insects.

Good luck Wednesday!

Thanks. Good comments. Had not thought of the plowed earth / grub idea. Locals have not been seeing the birds out in the fields yet so may be still in the woods more, but the weather is warmning rapidly and things will change.
