      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 .

We have hunted the last two EA seasons on the same 40 acre parcel of private land. Taking 3 the first year, 4 the second. No deer were spotted on regular opener either year. Deer were seen again later in the season on that parcel.

This year we are hunting public land for EA season. Love to get those two extra days of hunting in nice and early. The doe venison is great, too. But not seeing any deer on opener has us rethinking our ways.

Good Luck!

We've had an early doe season in Wisconsin for years. Its idea is to thin the herd where needed. Unfortunatly that is mostly on private land. As Jameson stated, most people with private land hunt the public land instead. Those of us stuck on public land all the time get hosed on this deal. frown.gif

Once you start banging away with firearms, the deer get real scarce for weeks. The public land gets raped, the private land still has too many deer.

We fought long and hard enough to finally make this hunt go away in Wisconsin. Let's hope Minnesota hunters learn from this sooner rather than later.

I have hunted the EA season the past 2 years with no success. I hunted public land near Milaca and I think there is just to many things going on at the time. pheasant hunters and grouse hunters. Too many people walking around makes for tough deer hunt. I seen a couple of guys dragging deer but not many. Like someone else said, public land gets hunted hard and IMO ruins the regular deer season.

I think the way to go is to just knock on doors and ask permission on private land. Some landowners may say no because you have a gun and they don't know you but it never hurts to ask.

I hunted it the last 2 seasons on our Private land in Almulund. We did manage 3 deer the first year. But nothing last year. I noticed a lot less deer during Regular season. Not sure if it is related to it or not. This year we are just waiting for the regular season since I do a lot of bow hunting in other areas anyways. I honestly have mixed reviews and since I am a bow hunter I would prefer the season to be nixed. Why not just add a 3rd weekend in zone 2a instead!
