      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 .

I was wondering how may of you guys hunt from a ground blind for bear? I was thinking of trying it this year on some remote spots.

I have done it before. I was in my tent and only had the front window open facing the bait. Very different feeling when you cannot see around you and only in front. I was worried about scent but was using a rifle so I was a little farther away than my first stand.

I guess I would play the wind a little more and know that it is Oh so fun when you get bees in the tent with you and have no way of escaping!

Good luck. I did take my tent down every day though as I wanted to make sure it was there when I got back and the bear did not trash it.

I have hunted bear from the ground. It is very common in Manitoba. I had one bear walk into the blind, within about 22 inches of me, it sniffed the gun barrel that was pointing at it and turned and walked away. I've had plenty within 10 feet. It is the highest of highs. It is the most exciting, nerve racking way to hunt. The binds are set about 70 to 120 yards away from the bait.

My best friend had a sow get scared off the bait by a big boar, she ran right down the shooting lane toward his blind. He was sitting on a log with his day pack on the ground with in arms reach. The sow ran down the shooting lane and as she past him she kick the day pack and the either the draft or long fur brushed his pant leg. God I love bear hunting.

I have a friend that hunted last year up by Winnie. He stuck a bear right at dusk with his bow at 30 yds and the bear ran right down the trail he walked in on. About a mile or so off the main road in. Hunting by himself he said he spent the night in the woods because he never heard the grunt of death. Huge camp fire and scared of every snap and crackel in the woods. Needless to say I think I would have done the same. Bear ended up about 200 yds down the trail curled up.

I once saw an outfitter's site that had an FAQ on bear hunting. One of the question's was "Do I have to hunt from one of your stands or can I hunt from the ground while bowhunting?" The outfitter's response was simply "Are you crazy?"

I don't think I'd take it to that extreme but I did think it was funny.
