      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 .

snow and frozen ground dog sets

Does anyone have pics of how to set in snow and/or frozen ground? I have a spot that coyotes and fox have been beeing spotted frequently for the last 2 or 3 weeks.

I havn't been on in a while, fighting open water, then 4 feet of powder snow and overflow. I am pulling my set and calling it a tough season this year. How much snow do you have? i have some good sets for deep snow.

Well right now we have lost a lot of snow. In the fields, the hills are showing black dirt, but there are still areas with over a foot of snow where it isn't exposed to as much sun. I have considered snaring, but the area that I have in mine I haven't found much for consistent trails that. They are frequenting a pig gut pile that is on the corner of a field. There are 2 sloughs nearby with very scarce, patchy cattails and 2 tree lines, one running N&S and one running E&W. They do have trails along the fence lines, but I don't know if they are constricted enough to get them to walk through the snare, but I don't have much experience with dogs or snares for that matter. Most of the critters I trap are coons, beavers, and mink.

I would start simple and put a few snares if you have any along the fence line and you might be surprised. Just a thought

One thing to consider is if your going to snare on a fence crossing is what value do you want to get out of the pelt? If you anchor the snare right near the fence the yote can rub up against it and will wreck some of the fur.

One thing i would suggest is to put your snare on a drowner cable like you would for beaver. This way when the yote gets caught it will take the snare down the drowner wire to the anchor which is away from the fence. Works really well and i have done it with fox alot.
