      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 .

So with opener less than 2 weeks away, what's everyones predictions on the thermometer reading that first morning? So far the weather has been pretty chilly for this time of year so I'm thinking we'll be looking at about 10 degrees just north of brainerd.

love to hunt

I pack everything I own just in case. I have seen openers that started -10 and went to 40 by noon. You can't figure Minnesota weather.

I second that, I remember a couple years back when it was -10 in the morning and by the time I was dragging out my deer at 11 it was in the 30's or 40's and I was sweating with all my gear on!!

Accuweather says a high of 40 for Saturday the 4th (Aitkin area). That'll change 10 times between now and then though. As long as it isn't as warm as last year, I'll be happy. All the Asian beetles woke up and were crawling all over my stand. Deer hunting in blue jeans just isn't right either.

I'll take a crunchy 3" of snow on the ground and a high of about 32... just so the snow doesn't get soft. Cloudy skies and no wind.

With the full moon on Sunday, I am really hoping for a thick cloud cover and cool days.

It sure would be nice if someone granted requests. I like it cold - maybe 25 degrees with a 3" blanket of fresh snow!

But heck, I'd be out there if it was 80 and sunny or -10 and windy.

Just a few years ago I remember hunting in tennis shoes and a long sleeve shirt by late morning; and that was the second week of the 1A. Every step sounded like you were walking on potato chips.

Weather service now says night lows in the mid 20's and day highs mid to upper 30's.

Would anyone here not go because of the weather?

I remember that. That was a weird year. I would image this year will be pretty mild. That if fine with me. We don't need snow for deer hunting anyhow. But if it is here I won't matter to me. 60's might be a bit to much though. The 10 day for my area says 40's for high and snow flurries for sun possible.

I"m a bow hunter 2 but for some reason I like a little snow on the ground for rifle season. But no matterr what I will be on stand 20 to 30 min. before shooting time.

Last year was was the most dramatic weather I had ever hunted in. On Friday I had gotten to my grandparents, it was 72 degrees out and I even saw a few mosquitos. Saturday while hunting it rained a little, there were a few claps of thunder, and then right at sundown the skies got green and it hailed 3 different times that night. Sunday morning (the next morning) there were flakes of snow flying around! WEIRD!!!

We hunt shotgun in SW MN, but it would be nice if the high was around 30 degrees with lows in the mid teens. About 7 years ago we had lows around 0 with highs in the teens and the bucks were absolutely everywhere, so that would be nice, but a bit cold. smirk.gif

4-9" of snow for Baudette area with highs in low to mid 30's Sat. and lows in upper teens for Sat. night and then 40-45 on Sunday. Just perfect if you ask me, unless the snow gets crunchy.
