      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 why don't they split up ?

The Toms were really talking this morning - both on and off the roost. Had a pair cross a field, then a gravel road, then the field by our little spot in the woods this morning. Because of a crest in the field, we could not see them - only hear them. and hear them we did. A pair gobbling together at our calls, crows, geese - on a string - well so we thought.

The little hen down on the corner of the field thought she was the new cornerback for the Vikes and made a pair of interceptions. tired

This got me thinking ... of all the pairs and those rare trios of gobblers that I have watched, worked, and pulled towards me either with a hen or intercepted by a hen ... where one Tom goes they all seem to go. Without exception ... although I guess I don't know if one coming in alone later may have been paired hours earlier.

Wouldn't you think one would want to sneak or run off immediately ??

Anyone split a pair of gobblers (not jakes) that ended with a successful kill ? For sake of arguement say the split is 100 yards or further.

Clarify that this is splitting them up. I have had hens bring in a pair together. Occassionally with one not leaving with her.

Kinda weird, on my end this was year 1 for me turkey hunting, but connected and I could've called forever and never got that Tom in range or so it seemed, he had his own agenda, I had to intercept the route he was on, he wouldn't come close to the decoy or call, but as soon as I relocated on his route he acted semi interested and fluffed up and came to me, I don't know and I thought lone Tom like this with very few hens around he'd be after a new hen, but not a chance really, he was a wise old veteran, then my father in law connected 5 miles away and his tom came running full bore from nearly a mile away, so something is up with a Toms mood whether he's alone or with the boys.

Unknown Brittman like this morning I saw 4 Toms fluffed to the max, not sure why or what was around, they were really showboating and just a 1/2 mile down the road 1 was gobbling up a storm. Had a big tom at our feeder last night, they were really on the go this AM. I wish I could've messed with the 4 pack to see if I could've called any away from one another or what.
