      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 .

Early goose sets

I hope that it's ok to ask more than one question. I hunt hay feilds in the Duluth area. Does any one else? I use 1 dz. shells with flocked heads, 1 dz. siloets, 9 floaters, and 3-5 hovering decoys. I place my shells in a v formation next to my blind. I use a pattern I once saw live geese resting in. I then split my silos into two family groups about 10 yards behind the shells with the floaters resting on the in side of them. There is about 20 to 30 yards between the two familys. I then place 3-5 hovering decoys about 40 yds. away from my blind so I know when the geese are in range. I place them so they look like there landing just inside of one of family groups. I love the hoverers! Does any one else use they? And how do you guys set up? Or any sugestions? I feel like a kid waiting for christmass

unclesalty, sounds like you have all the steps covered. Only thing to add now are some full bodies. I know they are spendy but they will finish those stubborn geese.

Never have used the hover deeks, but if they work, go for it. We use 8 doz full bodies, 6 doz sili's, and about 2 dozen shells. We make family groups of 5 up to 25 with the main concentration where the blinds are. We start by setting out full bodies and then fill in with the sili's and the shell on stakes for motion. Do you own a flag? These are a key to goose hunting success, if you dont own one I would suggest getting one. And invest in some full bodies. When I started hunting geese the spread you have is very similar to what I had then and it worked awesome. Just over the years we have added more dekes and have killed larger #'s over a bigger spread. Good Luck!!
