      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 .

What amount of time...?

What's the minimum amount time you will sit in a stand at night? I normally like at least 2.5 hours or so but with the sunset getting earlier and earlier it's harder to get out after work...

Yep, I hear ya. I shoot for 2.5 hours too. I like to try get there closer to three hours, but don't feel rushed until I get inside of 2.5 hours. If it's less than 2 hours, I really get crabby. Less than about 1.5 hours and I skip the stand (because I don't have stands up- I carry mine in and out and have to put them up each night) and try other methods- calling, spot and stalk, etc.

1.5 minimum, During October lull between 1.5 and 2, the stand time will increase dramatically here in the next week. Hopefully a few all dayers the first few days of Nov.

Two hours, but I've gone out with a scant hour to go in the last few days before gun season. Two years ago I set up a stand & was settled a max of 45 minutes before dark two nights before gun season & within about 20 minutes or so had arrowed a buck & a doe. Made a poor hit on the buck & he got away, but that was my fault on shot selection, nothing to do with the little time on stand. Things can happen quick when rut time comes. A few big can calls on a windy night in a new location & here they come. Definitely one of my top 5 memorable bowhunts. I shot a couple of smaller bucks the night before gun season when I got on stand around 4:00 or a hair later & it's dark by 5:30 then.

Had that same dilemna Sat. afternoon. Didn't get done with yard work until 4:30 and I'm about a half hour from the stand. Thought by the time I got showered scent free and got there I'd have maybe an hour to 1.5 tops. Skipped it and went pheasant hunting instead. Really want to get out this week though...

If I take my 7 year old with me, I'm limited to about 1.5 hours. Even if we are seeing deer he still gets bored.

Maybe I gotta shoot one while he's in there with me.

I usually won't go if I don't have two hours to sit.
