      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 .

Twin Cities to Iowa for phez?

Recommended Posts

bonasa

As a new resident to MN and my first bird hunting season here, I'm looking to find all the huntig spots for ruffies and pheasant I can. In another thread it was mentioned that public land in Iowa with birds could be reached in 1.5 hours from the twin cities. I would appreciate anyone who can provide more details. I live in Minneapolis and my one and only scouting trip down to the SW corner of MN where the pheasants are took more than 4 hours. 1.5 hours could be done after work! : ) Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Mike

i was raised in forest city iowa, about 20 minutes south of MN. there is alot of public land in that area. as soon as you get to iowa on 35, you are in winnebago county. take any exit and head west. you will likely see the small green signs denoting public hunting. there are several small parcels of land that can be worked alone and many large areas that are better for a group. if you check the winnebago county conservation board, you can find exactly where they are. the gravel roads are always fun to drive too. good luck, only one month left!

From Mpls. you can drive down I35 to 14 and go east or west for some decent close hunting areas. There are a couple good public areas around Dodge Center. There are good areas in IA, but there are equally good areas in MN, and you can save $90.

Been going the last 3 years, either purchase a book on Public land or just drive down there, they have signs for public land on major county roads.

It's worth it!

1.5 to good hunting in Iowa? Not sure about that. I always head farther west. One good thing about Iowa is you can hunt ditches. That opens up a lot of hunting land when public areas are hard to find or overhunted. Drive to remote area gravel road and hunt good looking ditches. Preferably by cut corn fields. Watch the barb wire though.
