      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 .

Strutting Soon?

As the forecast turns warmer, it's probably only a matter of days before someone will spot a false spring strutter roaming the hillsides and looking for love. They'll strut all winter, and I've seen a few in the area posturing for a higher ranking amongst friends, but I have yet to see the ones that will put themselves on a barren pasture and announce their presence to the world.

As it goes, I get fooled by the scrub red cedar which grows low to the ground, and, at the right distance looks just like a strutting tom. This morning was no exception, as I pulled over to the side of the road and glassed a few very nice young cedars. Not turkeys.

I should settle down, as the season is still a good 2+ months away.

Whoa there Joel.

Make that three months away for some of us, so don't go getting me any more pumped up than I already am. tongue.gif If I start talking turkeys this soon, I may get kicked out of the house.

I hear ya Joel. Today I hit every piece of public land in my zone that is promising for turkeys. I put on 200 miles today. I didn't get out and walk as much as I would've liked, but I definately glassed a few cedars and brushy stumps.

Tomorrow I will be getting orders for a few plat books.

Thanks for the post, and welcome to FishingMinnesota and the turkey page!

Good to see that they're enjoying the warm weather like we are.

There is a flock of birds that hangs out on the West side of 694 just before you hit Hwy 61 and the river while heading South. You can ususally catch them a couple of mornings a week.

Even though you can only see them as you are zipping past, it is strange to watch the dynamics because sometimes it is just the hen, other days they are all mixed and at other times the hens are in one place on the hill and the toms are on another part. Just like a batch of jr. high schoolers.

Anyway, I have seen some fans in the air in December and January when the sun is out. Talk about tourture. The season just can't come fast enough!!!!

I heard a few on the roost yesterday morning when I was out and about. A couple of different birds, but they didn't carry-on like I was hoping.

Lookin' good in that aviator Joel...but which one is the turkey, I get confused wink.gif

Saw the largest flock of turkeys about 2 miles from my house today. I'd say there were 30-40 turkeys feeding in a field. Didn't make a stop to view em', but no strutin in this group. When will they start breaking up?
