      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 .

Alfalfa in food plots

Recommended Posts

I've been at this deer food plot hobby for about 5-6 years now and one of the things that I've noticed is that any of the food plot mixes that have alfalfa in them seem to last longer. What I mean is that after 4-5 years the clovers tend to die out but the alfalfa will still be growing fine. The deer do seem to like the clovers better but if you keep mowing the alfalfa the deer will also eat it. I bought a 50 pound bag of alfalfa this spring and I'm going to start mixing it with some of the clover mixes, especially on the areas that are trails or firebreaks at the edges of my CRP, they get more vehicle traffic, I think the alfalfa will hold up better and still provide the deer with another food source.

Has anybody else used alfalfa in their food plots?

BlackJack, I don't plant food plots as I hunt in SEMN with lots and lots of cropland. There is nothing better than alfalfa shoots about 4 inches high. I have seen deer walk through clover fields to get to the alfala field after a fourth crop is taken up. They'll browse in the alfala fields before strapping the feed bag on in the corn fields. Once it gets too high, it gets woody and the deer don't like it as much. Keep it mowed, the deer will love it.
