      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 .

Duck Season - All But Over For Me

Recommended Posts

eyepatrol

Wow, looking at the calendar and all the things I have going on, it looks like the waterfowl season is all but over for me this year. Busy this weekend, all kinds of work stuff next week, then deer hunting on the 11, 12, 13 and 14 of Nov., then busy with work again, then leaving to spend a week with my wife's folks out in California. Season ends 2 days after we return. frown.gif

Oh well, it's been a great season this year!!!!!! This has been the best hunting I've had and most ducks I've seen in probably 10 years. Maybe if I'm lucky I'll get out one more time, but looking at my schedule it isn't promising.

I hope you all have a great remainder of the season. Shoot a couple of those big northern mals and 'bills for me! wink.gif

As always, enjoy your hunts and stay safe.

Basscatcher, I'm in the same boat you are. I am deer hunting the next two weekends and then who knows by third weekend everything could be iced up. Just have to wait and see. It might not be a bad thing if I don't get out duck hunting one more time, I'll just have to start chasing roosters (haven't been out yet).

Basscatcher - the ducks will certainly rest easier knowing you won't be chasing them.

I'm also calling her quits for this year. I got out 3 times and never shot at a duck. The good news is that next year can't be any worse. The only thing that has kept me going is being able to read the stories of great hunts on the web. For those of you still out there hunting, keep posting pics of the results.

I don't want to be calling it quits but I got dates with deer camp and the deer stand for the following 3 weekends.

What a tough time of year!

Is Thanksgiving weekend still open duck season again this year? Might not matter with the cold temps we are experiencing but that was one heck of a goose shoot last fall over Thanksgiving!

Last day is Nov. 28 (my b-day actually). Might have to treat myself to my own b-day gift!?!? grin.gif

There is still the late goose season, but I'm a water hunter and the lake I hunt is typically pretty solid by that time with a couple inches of ice. Time will tell though. Surprisingly I haven't seen as many geese this year after the regular waterfowl season started. Got 4 one day during the early season, then only 1 by my dad after that I believe. Got my fingers crossed for late season. wink.gif

They actually got off easy today. I only shot at about a 50% ratio. Considering how close they came in, that's pretty poor. More for the southerners I guess. smirk.gif

I told my neighbor that it was hard to leave on a day like today, especially since we hadn't gotten any geese and I was really hoping we'd see some and get a chance at some. Then low and behold when I got home I looked at my schedule and realized it was quite possibly the last hunt of the season for me. Ending on a good note, but kinda depressing too. smirk.gif
