      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 .

First Time North Dakota Whitetail

This next fall I will be attending UND and am hoping to do alot of bowhunting. I do not have a clue where to start though. I have bowhunted all my life in the thick woods in MN. I would guess that rivers would be good spots and sloughs? Dont have to give out specific spots, I would just like to know the basics please.

Find a shelter belt next to some corn or beans. Most farmers will let bowhunters on there land. I use to have a spot right on the edge of the Turtle river state park and a feild of beans. I never got denied by any landowners about bowhunting.

I have a buddy who hunts in the exact area that cbrooks is talking about. There's some great spots there and some very nice bucks around. If you go out there in July and Aug and knock on some doors, I'm sure you'll find some places to hunt.

Harvey Lee's suggestion is a great area too, but it's a pretty good hike for you in GF. Heading straight West will be a lot closer to another good area. I'd tell you more details about where to go, but I've never hunted over there- just passing along info from my buddy (which I know is true).

Good luck!

I deer hunt up by Cando. If I were you I would try around the Lakota area!! Not to far from Grand Forks and its loaded with deer and landowners want them gone. Also the size of the deer up there is AWESOME!! Theres a lot of nice shelter belts and cattails around there so finding a place to cover isnt a problem. And a ton of corn!!!

You don't need to drive all that far to find nice bucks. Just north of town along the Red all the way up to the Olso exit there have been nice bucks taken. On highway 2 going east you could try around the Kelly slough area or the spot I told you about earlier. If you go South of town I think its posted pretty tightalong the river. If the land is posted don't get discourage and walk away. Three out of four times the landowner will let you bowhunt. Most of the time they just want to know whos hunting on there land. Good luck bowhunting and let us know how it went.
