      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 talking to my uncle today. He said that they cut up 2 by 2 boards and paint them yellow and he puts them in his decoy spread to make it look like there is corn out there. He says it draws the geese in. Anyone tried this???

Once apon a time one of the decoy makers (quack I think)made plastic corn ears for this use. Hmmm next time the local craft store has a big clearance sale maybe a hand full of fake ears...

trail and error is the best experience.

I might give it a try thanks for the idea.

Fake plastic corn is still made for hunting purposes. I've seen it advertised on line. I've been planning on getting some and trying it out.

Plastic ears of corn,I've seen it at cabelas and I also have heard of guys tearing up yellow paper into small pieces and spredding them about the decoys to look like corn on the ground.

Is it considered baiting though? GHG makes a plastic ear of corn that can be used for decoying birds.

I don't know why it would be considered baiting, well first of its not real corn. It would be like them saying that we can't use decoys either, it just wouldn't make any sense. But I guess anything can happen. A person could go one step farther and say that field hunting is not going to be aloud either because the field that one person might be hunting has food in it, which in a sense is can be considered baiting. I'm not really sure what the baiting law stats, be from hearing people ask questions about it, I think the DNR should really define the meaning of baiting a little bit better or something!

Anything left from normal agricultural practice is not considered baiting.

I knew that, I was just trying to prove my point that the plastic molded corn my by GHG shouldn't be considered baiting!
