      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 .

Spooky Crows

Did you put an owl decoy out?
They attack them. Try finding an old fur garment of some kind and put some silky red cloth on it to make it look like bloody meat.
They love that, and black garbage bags without the garbage of course!
Also put some crow decoys around these items to make it look like they are feeding there!
Good Luck!!! grin.gif

Anybody know any ways to get the crows closer. Went out last night . They all seem to come for the sound but as soon as they get closer they do a U-turn go right back where they came from. Although we did end up getting three of them.

You have to scout for them just as you would geese in fields. Find some flying around and look for there roosting area and set up in any cover that is most convienient.
They don't usually roost in any particular area or tree so you have to look for them.
Put your owl decoy on a fence post with a couple crow decoys sitting on the ground next to the fence post.
I take my old boom box that I camo spray painted and put on a crow tape and turn it on real loud and call on my crow call too.
It's best to hunt in the early morning so you can put on some camo clothes on and not have to put bug spray on exposed skin. Plus you won't sweat to death because it is usually a lot cooler in the morning. And they move around more in the early morning than later on in the day!
Good Luck!

We use a brown burlap sack with some red pait sprayed on it (blood). We use this to carry decoys around and then use it in the field to act as "road kill." We also use the burlap road kill sack to cover the e-caller device/speaker. 3 - 6 decoys work great. Place them in/around the road kill bag, turn on the e-collar and take cover. Best tapes are with owl/crow fighting. Owl decoy also is also a must in addition to the road kill and crow decoys. Sometimes, with warry crows, set up farther away from the caller/decoys for better pass shooting. Like fox/coyote hunting - in MN, ....basically,... once you shoot, you have to move. ...Crows are smart!! Winter hunting seems easier, and less hassle than summer too. Good luck.

can it be luck?

Question: How come you never see dead crows on the side of the highways? Answer: Because there's always one in a tree screaming, "car car car" or "caw caw caw". smile.gif
