      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 .

Food plot drag

Recommended Posts

trollneyes

Does anyone have any good ideas for a cheap drag to work up ground for a food plot? I have access to a 4 wheeler. The area I am going to work up is fairly remote. I could rent a walk behind tiller, but I would rather spend the money on extra seed rather than till up 1/2 acre by hand. I also have access to some scrap metal and a welder if anyone has a simple design that has worked for them.

I don't think you could work up the ground with a drag. I pull a disc behind my atv, then use a drag to smooth and firm the soil and break up the clumps of dirt.

At times I've sprayed to kill the weeds, then used my drag to remove the dead vegetation and scratch up the surface enough to broadcast seed. But that's on ground that's been worked a lot in the past (tilled, limed, and fertilized) - I don't think it't work too good on a new plot.

If you do make a drag yourself, make it heavy or make it so you can add weight. Even with my disc I usually add a few hundred pounds until the plots have been worked up. And my drag weighs over 100 lbs too.

I don't know if this helps you or not, but good luck.

Before I rented a disc, I attempted various methods to try and scratch earth. My plow on my atv didn't work, I tried pulling various items, cement blocks, chuncks of iron, I guess there's a reason they make farm implements none of those things did anything. I can run my plow down the driveway and move class 5 but to try and break ground with sod/grass on it you need real equipment made for it.
