      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 .

Bait site by a river?

Recommended Posts

Boar

I Have picked out an alternative bait site on my land to bear hunt if I'm forced too. The place is deep in our river bottom, the site (not established yet) is an ideal location but one thing bothers me it's 25 yrds from a river, not a big river, probabley ten yrds across an shallow. I was wondering your thoughts of a bait site near a river in the idea that bear might not feel comfertable coming to a site near running water because they wont be able to hear over the current. Boar P.S Would a bear rather sit out a rain shower or would'nt he care an move regardless. Whats your ideal weather pattern to hunt bear. Boar again.

I would see no problem hunting next to the river. The deeper the woods the better. My ideal bear hunting conditions are cloudy and cool. Sixty's for highs and cloudy skies. Did you get your bait ball yet?

I wouldn't sweat the river. You see a lot of videos shot by the rivers up in Canada. As for the rains showers I don't think they will mind. My second bear I shot it was raining and some serious lightning and thunder was going on just not a down pour. I was using a bow and it was my second date with the wife. She was video taping for me. I had just thought to myself how nuts she must think I am and was going to get down when I saw it come in. I always bring rain gear just in case.

Thanks guys, yea I got my ball about a week ago keeping it in the fridge in the shop cause this bacon ball is something else. I'm gonna have to handle it with rubber dish gloves when I hang it, this thing is unbelievable it stinks up everything I cant wash it of my hands, the crdboard box it came in is still stinking up the shop. If a bear dont come to this there is no bear for miles around my site. I wish I could explain how effective this ball should be, Im dumbfounded in the potency of it an it still is in the two plastic bags it came in. Boar

Boar....if you could send me the website on the ball I'd apprecaite it carpdestroyer@hotmail.com

Don't worry a bit about being by a river. I actually prefer setting up by them. Rivers are natural funnels and most likely will bring more bear past your bait. River edges typically have better berry crops than the surrounding forest and bears learn to key in on the banks. The river also gives you a better idea of where the bear will be coming in from. They will cross water, but more than likely they'll try to keep dry. Setting up next to a river can also be handy if the wind is blowing your scent over the water. In that case you are less likely to be busted by a and old smart bear that normally circles the bait before coming in.

Yea no problem, One thing on this river site is he cant circle around behind me cause it slopes down at a 80 degree angle about a hundred feet till it bottoms out an you have river bottom. The tree I pick out for a stand is right up against the slope. But the 80 degree slope is'nt gonna be fun. And..... the river bottom is surrounded buy a bean feild that we lease out sooo... As much as I want to use the site I hope I dont have to. Boar
