      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 .

I'll be attending smile.gif

There will be a few folks from our local NWTF chapter, as well as a few guys I've talked to from the forums.

I'll have a few hunting DVDs there for giveaway, and I think you'll find the seminar helpful. See you there!

I attended the seminar on Friday and Joel does a great job covering everything a hunter needs to know. I hope others take the time to attend the advanced one. I ensure even the best turkey hunter will take a little something home. I know I did.

Just to let everyone know I do see that Joel has one on Apr 6th but it says that it is "advanced Tactics". I was looking for more of a beginners course for dummies like me smile.gif

If willing to drive to Cannon Falls, feel free to attend the DNR Turkey Clinic I'll be putting on. This will be more for beginning hunters, and includes some take-home information you can look at and have at your disposal. Cost is $5 for this one.

Let me know if you want more information, and thanks,

Joel

Thanks to all of you who attending the first seminar! Your DVD's are in the mail as of this morning.

Please look into attending the Advanced clinic where I'll be addressing these topics, as well as answering whatever questions you might have:

-Sit and Wait vs. Run and Gun - the Hybrid approach?

-Advanced Calling

-Hung up Gobblers

-Advanced scouting

I also plan on having several topics that I'll cover a few of, pending the interest and vote of the folks in attendance.

My hope is that some veteran turkey hunters attend this clinic, and help make it more of an open forum for some advanced turkey hunting discussion.

Again, I plan on giving away some hunting DVD's to those in attendance.

See you April 6th!

Joel

Joel, could you tell me what topics were covered in the 1st one?

Dave:

We covered:

-Turkey Biology/Behavior

-Basic Calling

-Weapon of choice - preparation

-Hunting strategies

-A day in the woods

There were several questions that got a bit more advanced, esp. those regarding topics on pressured birds, roosting, etc.

I plan on going over these topics again, as well as gauging the audience to see which topics are the most important to them.

Again, I urge you to attend the DNR clinic this Saturday morning for a much more exhaustive beginners course. I will be spending 3 hours, rather than 1, covering quite a bit of information on spring turkey hunting.

Thanks,

Joel

The last of the Gander Turkey Seminars is tonight at 7pm, hope to see you there!

In this seminar, I'll be discussing some more advanced topics, specifically:

-Subtle Calling - Tips and strategies

-Adv. Scouting

-Hung-up Gobblers

-Tuning your hunting to the breeding phase

I'll also try and solicit some scenarios from hunters in the group, and we'll try to discuss some tactics for particularly bad birds. Show up tonight and we'll all talk some turkey!

Joel
