      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 .

anyone know about when the rut starts in walker? Got permission to hunt a big woods by some state land its a friend of mines grandparents and they said that it hasn't been hunted in over 6 years. was just kinda wondering if a little gruntin and rattlin would possible spike the interest in some of the bucks in the area yet?

Rut timing up by Walker is going to closely resemble the rest of the state. Obviously weather can shift things some but I would say a safe bet is that your optimum grunting/rattling times is going to start up towards the last coupld of weeks in Oct.

I would say it's still a bit early to do any major calling, but some slight rattling (imagine a couple small bucks lightly practing with their headgear, but nothing more than half a minute or so) and a few longer grunts may get something to come see what the comotion is all about. I wouldn't get too carried away quite yet though.

We are just starting to break into that time of year where the dominant bucks will start to defend their area. I'd go with a few mock scrapes or better yet, find one they made and sit downwind 60 yards. More often than not the bigger bucks will wind check scrapes rather than follow the main path, so you don't want to be too close and have them come downwind of the scrape AND you! Hope this helps you out. Good luck!

i'm actually goin up there this weekend to bow hunt with a buddy. i know its pretty early for the rut to start but hopefully the buck activity is good in the woods and since it hasn't been hunted it years that the movement is good. guess i'll just have to scout around and see what i can find. maybe one of us will get lucky. i'll post after we get back.

Rattelm'up, good luck this weekend. Where from Walker is the land you are going to be on? I know the area pretty well and just curious if it anywhere near where I bowhunt. I will be up this weekend and know a few peeps from Glencoe. Might just see you in the local watering hole!
