      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 .

Cover scent idea

I hunt where there are cattle and horses pastured so I always make sure to step in a fresh pie or two. Anyone gone so far as to rub their hunting clothes on a horse or cow before heading out?

can't say I have done that purposefully.....I was reading in a predator mag. the other day about a new way to mask scent. They mixed 3 or 4 different scents in a spray bottle and saturated (I doubt they saturated, but I am sure they sprayed a lot) the area with that mix. Fox, deer, racoon, and I can't remember the other one. I wouldn't spray it on myself but I will be trying it out this year. Basically it confuses the animals because it is picking up fox deer racoon, rabbit, human all at the same time. proof will be in pudding this year.

if the cattle operation is big, hang your hunting clothes up in the barn for a day or two, that should last all season, of course your friends will want to stay up wind of you at all times smirk.gif

I havent rubbed on the cows but I have put thier by products on my pants and shirt. You will need to wash your clothes or you wont get back into the house.

As they say, a little dab will do ya.

One of my best stands is on the fenceline of my pasture. I frequently use the horses as cover when I cross the open pasture during the daylight. Simply have 1 horse on each side of me as I walk, turn them loose when I reach the fenceline. I have used this tactic to get into my stand undetected when there were deer feeding in the field next to mine during the daylight. I'm sure that the horse scent also gets on my clothes and helps to cover my scent as well.
