      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 .

rubs & rub-lines

Where to look?

In your experiences, where do you look for buck sign, mainly rubs. What types of cover and terrain features. I am hunting in an area that consists of wetland cattails and bramble with islands of upland Decid/Con mix, bordering two bean fields, with little terrain features or elevation for that matter. I am not seeing much where I hunt in terms of rubs or scrapes. I know there is at least 3 mature bucks in the vicinity, I have seen them. But I cannot find a single scrape or rub. Any help appreciated.

I will post an ariel.

Its a bit early for seeing rubs,scrapes.I hunt in areas simular to yours,rubs & scrapes start showin up here late Sept. Oct,some scattered earlier than that but few.Are your stands on or near well used trails? A pic does'nt show much but land lay its the trails where they move that shows the most.I've noticed in my area deer use the edge of the woods most,and I'd think its to avoid insects,and yet have trees to escape to.I see the most deer in the evening and their comming out of cattails,where ya never would think they are! When lookin for rubs look for 2-4 inch trees rubs can be scattered,Scrapes will be on or near used trails,where theres doe traffic,look for low hanging branches with a circular cleared spot below it.

Where are you hunting?? What town is close? smile.gif

As mentioned, for the most part, rubs and less so scrapes are really just getting fired up. For me, the no brainer is going to be on the interface of a woods and a field. Another spot that I'll see rubs is on the edge between any upland type woods and the swamp (cattails).
