      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 .

I also have the deer hunting itch. The snow is almsot gone so walking in the woods now is just awesome. This is a great time to scout as all the sign is still visible and no bugs yet. In fact last weekend I found a new spot that needs a stand. So that will be my project for the next few weekends.....

I cured part of my itch last week with a trip to Texas. A nice turkey, a pig, a javelina and two nilgai helped alot. I can't believe how many animals I saw on the hunt.

A friend of mine has a friend who is part of a 23,000 acre leased camp on the King Ranch in TX. I got invited to go along and couldn't pass up a trip of a lifetime. Now I just need to get invited when the whitetails and quail are fair game.

I went up to the shack last week and had a look around. I scouted a few new areas for bear hunting and checked out my land. I put some salt blocks out for the deer, and put some left over bait out for the bears. I won't hunt from the area I baited, I just like to set the cameras out and see what's around. I sighted in the muzzle loader with some new bullets, and have been shooting the bow pretty regular. I've reloaded more shotgun shells than one guy really needs, and I've been shooting 4 rounds of skeet a week. I need fising to open so I can quit obsessing about hunting. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the bear license.

I'm hoping to get out for Turkey season with the bow. But with spring being pushed back I will be planting during that time. But I have my mathew's sighted in and looking to shoot another big one for the taxadermist this year. I can't believe you didn't see A deer. Need to get out of that NYA area and head north. I hunt north of fargo and one night bow hunting on a 1/3 mile of river bottom we saw 24 deer in 2 hrs of hunting.

Hunting is more important then work you will learn,I allways take the whole turkey season off and for moose hunting last year I took the whole month of october off. It's an itch that never stops for me.

The hunting itch has been slowly leaving me, got spoiled years ago. The county I hunt is void of ducks so no duck hunting, having roughly 30 good goose hunting spots down to 4 and the number of quality bucks around is at barely any. Grouse numbers aren't worth mentioning anymore, went from hundreds to just a brood here and there. Not really a huntable amount of pheasants around and if they were finding places to go you can't. My property lines are surrounded by heated box stands. Sorry such a downer but I don't see any of that ever improving which is why so many leave the state to hunt: I might be joining them.

    • Bag 'em up and souse 'em!!!  
    • Great! To all the Coyotes and Wolves up in our hunting area.  I hope they all waste away!
    • The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger. 
    • How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
    • All that smoke and spice to try and make pork belly edible.
