      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 have this huge question....im hunting on this land with apple trees and ponds and my problem is that should i trust more of the little crab apples or stick with the regular apples. the thing is though, theres about 10 apple trees and then about 500 yds away theres this lone crab apple tree and its right by the pond. theres tons of big trails running by both of them but im not sure if the deer just like those crab apples or not? any help would be great. thanks!

WE have both where we hunt in N.D.along with chike cherrys.I have noticed that the deer will eat all of the above.I do believe that they eat each varity when the fruit is at its best.I do know that they seem to be crazy for those crab apple trees.We have some about 50 yards from the house and there is always deer there and even standing on thier hinds legs trying to get evry single one.From what I have seen I would venture to guess that I would hunt the crab apple before the regular apple trees.

At my place the deer are jumping the fence to come into the yard at night. They are going for the riper fruit first. They have more to choose from all in the same area so I would go with the riper ones first. Or put stands by both and move if needed or as the season progresses.

One thing to look for is this. Check both trees for visible fruit. Sometimes they will not produce every year. I know it seems dumb to mention. Also just because there are trails does not mean the deer prefer it for the apples. Maybe it is the water access, more so. At my place you can see the droppings when they are around. If apples start to drop hunt that area first.

Sounds like you have two good areas to hunt, so set up stands at both. Consider what wind direction and how you will access your stand at both sites. Maybe each spot will work better with different wind directions, so you're have a good option no matter what the wind is.

Good luck!
