      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 for coyotes

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

I know this looks like it should be in the hunting forum but follow me here: the last couple years we have gone to a buddies parents cabin on Lake Wabedo and spend a couple days trying to call in coyotes on the local public lands. We have not had much sucess, but have seen a lot of sign, along with T-wolf sign as well. I am not completely familiar with all of the state and county land up there, but I can read a map. Does anyone have suggestions for us? We are all teachers and generally come up during the MEA break in middle of October.

Thanks in advance for any help. I think this year we are gonna start knocking on the doors of some of the beef farms up there.

102 visits and no help??? come on fella's we are responsible, if we see a truck parked at an entry and don't see gun cases, we assume bow hunting and we leave the area immediately. Does someone have ideas for areas around wabedo for coyote hunting???? Does anyone have private land with coyotes on it that want them thinned out? we use electronic callers, and spend at most 1 hour in an area.

Have you hunted south and east of Wabedo? If not, follow the old railroad grade south to get in some back country. We have hunted deer on and off for the last 30 years south and west of Wabedo - used to see alot of coyote sign, but timber wolves are very firmly entrenched throughout the area. We started seeing them back in the early 90's, and I'm sure they love all the deer that are around. Don't forget Timber wolves will prey on coyotes - they're bigger, faster, and stronger, and will kill and eat these competitors.

Tough part to me would be to find country where you can see for a fair distance. Tree stands might not be the best way, but would surely give you a better view - sometimes two hunters, sitting back to back can be very effective in the woods.

In any case, there's alot of food in the woods around those parts - and these critters are pretty smart. Can't believe theres much hunting pressure for them, but you never know about them country boys...

Thanks guys, we have hunted south and east of wabedo, there is a grouse hunters area that we have tried the last couple of years, but we will find the railroad grade....last year went west of Pine river into the pine mountain state park (I think that was the name, anyway, we ran into too many ATV's and Grouse hunters, in fact we picked one up and drove him back to his car, about 15 miles by road. WE have called up a t-wolf before, that was errie, we could hear it walking back and forth 50 yards into the woods for about 10 minutes. A little un nerving
