      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 .

Last Regular Grouse Hunt of the Year?

Recommended Posts

brittman

With the doom and gloomers predicting so much snow across Minnesota, I headed out yesterday with my 10 yr old Britt.

I will occasionally hunt ruffs in the snow, but they do start acting different once the snow falls.

We hit an area north of town. It is pressured hard on weekends. Have not seen many grouse there this fall. Assumed this area to be down?

Except for 15 degrees F, it could have been Oct 29th.

Little more orange on me and an orange vest on the dog, but no muzzleloaders out ...

The birds must have spent Ocotber somewhere else. In 2.5 hours of hunting we moved 15 ruffs in two walks. Took home two and could have shot a couple more, but I limit my take in "winter" to two birds per area per day. Missed a few on the second walk.

Move slow. Birds were holding very tight - even with other birds flush. Dogs pointing ... shooting.

I have been waiting for the snow. 2 feet is not what I won’t, but 6" is a good number. My oldest lab has a nose on her like the dickens, couple that with a snow cover ground, if feel birds are easier seen. Also I have had some good hunts in the years past after snow fall. Right after it falls, they seem a little distracted and I feel the flush, more so than run. As far as seeing them on the ground, it’s a day and night situation. When they are moving around on a log and twitching up snow, they become like a beacon.
