      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 .

South Metro Bowhunting??

Recommended Posts

keithj1621

I am wondering if there are any decent areas open for bowhunting in the South Metro/Rosemount area. I am going to be at Ft. Snelling next week and my evenings are wide open. I would love to fill them in a tree stand. Can anyone offer any ideas??

If memory serves me correctly, there is a fairly new WMA between Lakeville and Northfield, but I don't have any sort of clue where it is... Just heard about it last year and this may be the first or second year it is open.

Pretty tough to find good land anymore in the south metro, unless you know someone. That is a sad state of affairs, but over the years, too many hunters have either abused their privileges, or somehow disgruntled the land owners...but more landowners are hunting now as well.

good luck in your search...

There is a new WMA just south of Rosemount in Farmington. I Drove by one night last year to find out where it was, and there was 4 or 5 trucks parked there. I have not checked it out yet.

That is a new WMA, but it is not open to public hunting as of yet. They did a very limited lottery draw for bowhunting in there this year (I didn't pull mad.gif). Plus only 2 of the 6 sections will be open to hunting this year. It will be patrolled and you need the permit to be in there. It was part of UMore Park. The U of M gave up 2000 acres of land in exchange for their new stadium.

They say it may be another year before it's fully open. They're trying to figure out how to keep the pressure down to a reasonable level in there. Which in the long run will be a good thing.

Good Luck!

Ken
