      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 .

Buck Making New Scrapes

Recommended Posts

BeerHunter

2 weekends ago we saw a large buck when doing a drive on some land i hunt.

This weekend on the same land a buck had freshend a scrape , pee and all, where there was one before gun season and made a fresh on in the 8 inches of snow 50 yards away.

My question for anyone out there with an answer is. What is the best way to hunt a scrape like this in late season or is he more than likely doing this at night.

There is unbelievable sign of movement. I havent been out to this land since before gun and i will be putting a camera out tomorrow to see what is going on.

Can anyone give me an idea on the best time of day to hunt this or am i just getting excited for nothing.

Also my food plots are all torn up but they are 250 yards from the scrape.

Thanks for any help.

I wouldnt put as much stock in hunting a scrape this time of year as I would have the last part of October or first part of November. Its not suprising to sees rubs or scrapes active right now as does that were not bred during their first estrous cycle will be in heat again as well as any fawns that may be coming in heat for the first time. However, the number in heat is probably very low. Personally I would ignore the scrape as it was probably made in the spur of the moment with a little bit of excitment but probably not something that buck is ever going to come back to.

If you have food plots getting eaten up, thats where the does are, and if there is a stray doe or two in heat, thats where they will be and that is also where a buck will be looking.

Hunt the food this time of year, because even if there isnt rutting activity going on, all the snow and cold we are having has the deer feeding and eating heavily and this includes the bucks.

Agreed! Hunt the food, hunt it smart. Deer are real spooky this time of year and won't put up with too much activity. Sneak in, sneak out, play the wind. Good luck!
