      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 .

LIKE A SPOOKY GHOST-TOWN!!! No noise. No rustle in the leaves. No twigs dropped from the branches. There should be something stirring, but there isn't.

And the small game hunters have shot everything in sight. Everything.

One of the saddest pieces of state land I've ever seen since the Metro-dome.

I am assuming Richard J. Doer Memorial State Forest is what you are refering to in SE MN. There are a ton of public hunting opportunities in this area of the state. I am sub-contracted to do work for the DNR and I get the opportunity to work in this large area of state land almost daily. I know of many large bucks, grouse, squirrles, etc... taken off of these lands if you put in the time in the off season and scout before and after the season. Like all public areas some areas get pounded and others are basically a little peice of "private" forest you have all to yourself. I'd suggest getting into areas where there are no ATVs etc... allowed and give yourself plenty of time to walk to find a spot you may have just to yourself. Get away from the lots as far as possible, a gps may come in handy. It is very easy to get lost in some of the larger tracts of the forest.

Ummm....yeah. I don't know why I thought you were referring to Namadji state forest.

Musta had a beer or two last night.

Anyways, the Dorer state forest is amazing. If you shoot a deer, expect to drag it up one hill and down another. Not much flat land. As stated, it's divided into many, many "units". Get a PRIM map, they are invaluable. Many tracts of SF land down there are land locked and all but inaccesible. Others look like private land, but are not. It's really strange that way. Scouting is critical. Locals have plenty of this land "squatted", and ready for their own use. The up-side is that many of the locals down there are "salt of the Earth". Attempt to build and nurture a relationship. (start this year for next. Don't come across as the guy who shows up the night before the hunt and wants to be thier best bud) They can frequently grant access to some neat stuff. Remember, the best hunting is often along the edges of agricultural land or swamps near them, not deep in the old growth state forest land.

I just put my best tips out there on the internet.......
