      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 .

Anybody have good building plans for building elevated box blinds? I have searched and everyone wants money for the plans. Any help would be appreciated, pictures are encouraged.

we did an open top box. we took four 16' long 4x4's and about 3 feet down we put boards across and frammed in the floor and just put boards down the side for support. Wish we would have put a top on it but it does cut down the wind a lot which is nice.

I had a friend build me a nice big box. One thing he did was use metal pipe for the legs and a metal frame on the bottom base. No way are there going to be any mice in there chewing up everything.

I sealed all the corners up with the foam in a can and then finished it off inside. I was in it last week and after a year of sitting in the woods, not one bug, spider, cobwebs or mice made a visit. As clean as I left it last fall.

Harvey Lee gives good advice on using metal if you can for the legs. Otherwise, you may want to look into a commercially made metal floor frame the wood posts attach into. Might cost a little more but would be more stable. Also, Menards and sportsmansguide has relatively cheap and nice tripod stands on sale right now. Might be just as cheap as the wood required and you could move them easier as you get to know your hunting land.

My father in law is in the construction business, so the wood is not going to be hard to come by. It is a good idea for the metal legs and it may be easier to anchor down.
