      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 .

Public Land

I was looking for some public land to hunt pheasant, rabbit, or grouse within an hour of the cities. Any one know of any? Our pup is new to the hunt this year(was born last labor day) and I want to get him some action besides the little time we get up at the cabin, any ideas?

You could try Carlos Avery, 35 splits it right in 2. I like the west side, mostly because I have never hunted on the east side of 35. Go to the DNR website, they have a bunch of info on it. Depending on where you are in the cities it should be within and hour. I've seen rabbits and grouse in there but I don't think I've seen any pheasent. There are a few more in the area but I can't think of any names off of the top of my head. Hope this helps.

The recreational compass portion of the DNR website shows all the public land. There are lots of places to go within an hour of the metro.

I went rabbit hunting in carlos avery last febuary and dident see a single rabbit all day, the only thing I did see was about 7 pheasents. All the pheasents I saw where in the swamps and since there is heavey pressure there the swamps are probly the only place you will find them, I did scare one up in a food plot but I wouldent expect them to be there after opener since they get hit hard during the season. As for grouse I havent seen one there and the cover for grouse doesent look good, I think there is some in there in the very northern part(sunrise unit I think its called) but not in the southern half. Try the suconix area west of the cities about 45 minits to an hour, me and my father have only hunted it once but there where bird tracks everywhere and we dident have a dog so we only scared up 3 hens but we must have been pushing 20 birds in front off us, we could hear them but they wouldent get up. Its also preaty large.
