      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 .

Can't help you out with the number of deer you will see, but isn't every hunt a good hunt? Especially those spent with friends and family?

Blap, welcom to MN deer hunting! I am from Hokah, a small town just west of La Crescent. I have been hunting now for 12 years in that area and I love it. If the weather cooperates by giving us cool temps and cloud cover, you should have a very enjoyable hunt. I can't guarentee that everyone in your group will bag a B & C buck, but you should see some deer and hopefully some nice ones.

Write a post after the season to let us know how you did.

Where are you hunting? Just out of curiosity.

Good luck!

Blap ,

Start getting your cardio in shape. You will be humping some large hills. I've hunted the area for 20 yrs. It wears me out every year.

Good luck.

Mike

Thanks for the info, that will help alot( I guess I better start running to get in shape) We are not sure where we are hunting. State land somewhere. We are getting there thursday to scout a little and try to find a spot. Any suggestions would be great

Thanks Brian

Your basic good hunting spots will apply here (trail crossings, funnels, benches, saddles, etc...). Try figure out where feeding and bedding areas are and set up in between.

Hint: Sidehill trails about 50 yds. below the peek of the ridge, near the point of the ridge. Sit all day.

Oh, forgot about the hills, I am from the area so it is normal to me, but out-of-towners always mention the hills. Yeah, be ready for steep bluff terrain, thick cover, and shots 100 yds or under.

Any specific area of state or federal land would be greatly appreciated right around La Crescent. From what I see there is alot around there. Is it good just south of La Crescent about two miles?

Honestly, any land in that area will be good. Since you will be hunting public or state land, you will just need to get out early to beat the rush (there will be lots of hunters out)

As for speciffic pieces of state/public land, I can't reccomend any. I am blessed to have a nice big piece of private land down there.

Sorry I can't be of more help in that dept.
