      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 hunted Ripley many years ago, probably 30 or so. We had a good time but there were just to many people for me. I like to hunt in somewhat remote areas where no one can mess up my hunt.

This could have also changed from 30 years ago. Good luck and have a good hunt. Sometimes it all what you make of it.

I hear you on the hunting alone thing. I have an area near my home I hunt and see no one all day long. A buddy has talked me into signing up and from stories I've heard just a little bit leary. Who knows maybe with 2500 people in the woods at least they will get them moving. If I'm lucky enough to get drawn I will make the best out of it and also would look forward to hunting different terrain. I have heard a lot of rolling hills, rivines. Where I hunt near home the area is very thick especially early bow season.

Soooooo many people. Sooooo many deer.

You can and will see deer every hour almost where ever you sit. I like to hunt around Gettysburg mountain/hill area. You will be amazed at the number of hunters - but you will also be amazed at the number of very large bucks taken.

The turkeys will keep you awake in your stand - they are every where.

The line to get in is well......funny. First time, you should go camp out in line - can be alot of fun; however, I rather sleep in - get there just after day break - find a little spot and sit til after lunch (hunters walking in for lunch move the deer pretty well).

I have been there the past two years. It is true there are many people there. I would say 80% hunt close to the road. If you are willing to go the extra mile go out and do some exploring. If it is your first time going there you should scout the first day and hunt the second. When you hunt, sit all day long. People are constantly moving all day and pushing deer. I highly suggest getting the Camp Ripley map and zero in on some spots there. The North side is hills/ravines and the South side is flat with swamps and fields. If you want to take a doe sit on the edge of these fields before sunset and they will be there. I remember the first time I went I was in the back of the line and one of the last ones in. I turned on Lake Alott rd. and this huge double drop tine buck ran right in front of my truck and into the no hunting area. That got the ticker going. A fun part about being there is watching people register their deer after the hunt. There are some pigs. If you want a shot at a trophy Camp Ripley is the place to be.

There are some camp sites close by. Most people who stay/spend the night do so in "line". It can be a nice little party out there. I think the line could be miles - all hunters and plenty of refreshments.
