      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 .

So many different sounds, so little time....

Question to anyone that's interested. This is my first year taking antlers, a grunt call and a bleat call into the woods. Recommendations on which should to use, how much, time of day etc.??? I'm going up north (the Emily area) this weekend from the 8th to the 11th (from what I hear thats peak rut, score!) and was wondering what would be the best strategy for me to get my first buck!

If it were me... I'd leave the rattling horns at the cabin. Bring a trusty grunt call and maybe a can call. We've got property just down the road towards Pine River and there's so many does that there's no competition between bucks. I've tried rattling throughout the years with various sized sheds... rattle bags and at different intensities really without any luck at all. But I've had bucks come to a grunt call time and time again. Now don't get me wrong... rattling works... IN certain area all dependent upon the sex ratio and age structure of deer. My area lacks both. Yours could be entirely different... If you do choose to rattle I'd do some light sparring and keep it to a minimum... hard clashing with a decent set will send every young buck out the of the county. I'd stick to a a few tending grunts followed by a bleat or two and another set of grunts and sit and be patient.

Just my experience though... there's 450,000 other hunters in the woods using calls with different experiences...
