      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 .

My brother-in-law, his girlfriend, and his uncle combined for 10 grouse on opening day. They were hunting in the Swatara/Hill City area. There must be quite a few birds around that area if they managed to shoot that many through the jungle!

I flushed over 20 birds on sat. Only got 2 by ground swat. Birds were really bunched up in certain areas.

too many people out on the opener, all my spots were hunted. went out on tuesday after the rain, nothing. went out on wednesday, missed one bird, almost hit another with the truck windsheild on my way to a spot. now more rain.

I think the birds are still bunched together in family groups, once they disperse, it will get better.

How much rain? The weather gauges on the internet only show traces of rain in that area.

I was up at the shack last weekend and it was so darn hot I couldn't do much grouse and woodcock hunting after about 11:00 am. My dogs run too darn hard and I didn't want to give them heat stroke. I had pretty decent luck finding birds, but the shooting was a different story. I bowhunted in the evenings, just sitting in the woods when it's in full color is a good time for me. I almost put some iceing on the cake by dropping a doe on Saturday night, but it wasn't to be. It got the old heart pumping a bit though. I love fall.

I talked to my brother-in-law a couple days ago, and they did very well last weekend near Hill City. He filled out on Sunday, and my father-in-law shot 3. They don't have a dog either!

I took 8 last week after work.

I have not yet really put heat to the woods ,but they are thinning.All of the ferns are brown and most of the under brush is down.

3/4 of the maples are down with only popolars and birch and oak holding leaves high.

The ticks are out in full force yet,so check your dogs for a few days after your hunt.

The numbers of birds are as good or better then last year.

No sense in letting &^%*(@@ get their way.

I did have a full response.Posted it & deleted it.

I am who you see.Nothing more ,nothing less.

My only agenda is to get others into fish and or game.

It's the only thing I live for these days.

If someone wants to toss stones I'm done for ,cause I'm not fighting back.I held my tongue all day.

That guy called all of my product sponsers & forums.

I had to explain myself to all of them.

Lost a few until this is all over.

To that end I'll be as I have been .A fisherman sharing secrets!

As far as I'm concerned judge me for who I am today ,not yesterday nor tommorow & or judge me lest you be judged.

I appreciate the info you provide. I have no idea what &^%*(@@ was referring to but the past is gone. All anyone can do is go forward learning as we go. I also live to hunt and fish these days. Walked for 2 hours in East of Outing today. Great habitat,no birds. Anyone else hunt this area recently? Returned home,Walked for 5 minutes on my property, two flushes. Time to climb the stand. Life is good!

This forum is for one thing and one thing only. Talking about outdoor sports!

Thanks CK! I might head up your way this winter and do some ice fishing!
