      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 .

Winter Wabbits

Anyone chase wintertime rabbits? I know the season runs until feb, but I've never hunted them besides fall. Are they very active when it is cold? Would it be a good idea to hunt right after a snow, or right when it starts warming up after a cold snap? Would just like to get out a few times this winter... Thanks

Winter can be a blast.. If we are lucky enough to get a good thaw .. them furry white critters stand out like a light bulb.

They tend to move more on warm days.

Haven't done it in a few years but winter time rabbits are a blast - literally! Wear red, drive farm groves, post one guy, they really show up in the snow, do it on the warmer sunny days. Tasty eating too. Make sure the guys are using low base 6's or 8's so they don't get blown up, it doesn't take much to anchor a rabbit.

Black, they are a blast to hunt as you described. There has been a group of guy's from LL hunting rabbit's like that for about 25 years. We usually have a "Rabbit" feed in early March every year. We try to get about 125-150 rabbit's for the feed. We just use the loins and back legs for the feed and keep the rest for ourselves. Nothing more fun than pushing a grove and having a poster or two and listen to the shots and yelling of the missed rabbit's! We like to use 7 1/2 shot low based shells. This year the population is suppose to be up so it should be good shooting. As we get into later Jan. and Feb. the females won't be moving as much and we get almost exclusively male rabbits. Good Luck and be Safe!!

Didn't kick any rabbits around, but it was nice to get out today and tote the gun and work the dog.

I've got a couple of big jacks this year, but they're usually pretty hit and miss. Sometimes I'll kick a couple out, otherwise I walk for miles and find nothing.
