      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 .

Outdoor Weekly vs. Outdoor News?

Recommended Posts

morgan7c

I'm a recent subscriber to Outdoors Weekly and I was curious what everyones opinions are on the Outdoors Weekly and Outdoor News? Some prefer one over the other for various reasons and I was wondering what you all think. I'm beginning to see alot more Outdoors Weekly papers up in this area and I hope this trend continues because I feel the fishing and hunting in this part of the state needs to exposed a bit more than it currently is. Have a good day guys!

I love the outdoor news! It's honestly the only piece of mail I look forward to getting. I think it's very insightful. I've never heard of outdoors weekly, is that based in minnesota as well? I'll have to keep my eye out for it, I can never get enough news about fishing in minnesota. What about midwest outdoors? I like the show, don't care so much for the paper, too inconsistant.

I agree with JBmasterangler,

The Outdoor News by far is the best magazine/paper out there. I look forward to the weekly delivery on Fridays and look forward to Clancy's articles and the ND reports and articles. Havn't missed an issue in about 7 years and will share with my kids when they get old enough to read. Another goody is the MN Volunter. They changed the name to be more PC but it overall is a wonderfull little magazine for everyone that enjoys the outdoors of MN.

Outdoors Weekly is based out of Minnesota (Vadnais Heights and Hutchinson). It's a few less pages than Outdoor News is but I find it very informative and it seems that all of their pictures are in color which I really like. I'm not familiar with the Midwest Outdoors paper but I do love the show.

Definately outdoor news. They have a political twist on outdoors issues but that is one of the reasons I enjoy it so much. The other reason is the writers aren't censored as they offer the opinions on subjects close to their heart. I find that week in and week out the outdoornews does a great job of bringing relevant topics to the table from all different spectrums. Outdoor weekly is a good paper too if you are just looking for outdoors type articles and how to fishing hints. Lately, I have found the content in the outdoor news is by far better then Outdoorlife and even Minnesota sportsman as these mags seem to have less and less content each month. Maybe a testament to the decrease in young sportsmen and women. Bottom line, I look foreward to every Thursday afternoon getting my subscription!

I have been getting outdoor news for a few years now and recently I received the outdoors weekly as Christmas gift. If and when I have to choose which to keep it will be the Outdoor news. I think there is just more info.

I feel Outdoor News is a superior paper compared to Outdoors Weekly. Much more and better info in my opinion. I usually buy both each week when I go grocery shopping and get the latest Midwest Outdoors every month as well. Midwest Outdoors is also pretty good, but for it's size it still doesn't compare to Outdoor News.

My vote goes to Outdoor News. I especially like the reader submitted photos. We always marvel at the large size of some of the fisherman's hands or how small their head is compared to the deer's head. wink.gif

It's always been Outdoor News for me, too. Don't see any reason to change, based on what I've seen with the competition.

Agreed on the outdoor news. Better articles, and more to read in general. Plus reading the cuffs and collars is absolutely hillarious!

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has produced six new, state-of-the-art maps that will make it easier and safer for people to explore, hunt, and recreate in state forests.   “The DNR has updated six state forests with 53 more to go,” said Forrest Boe, director of the DNR Forestry Division. “This five-year effort will include updating maps for all of Minnesota’s state forests.” State forest users now have two maps options. A geoPDF map will allow users to download a map onto a mobile device using a variety of map apps and then track their location as a blue dot on the screen. The new user-friendly, paper maps highlight the unique recreation features of each forest and include pop-out maps for popular campgrounds and day-use areas. “The little blue dot that appears on the map on my phone goes with me whether I’m on or off-trail,” said Laura Duffey, DNR state forest map project coordinator. “This feature lets people know exactly where they are in a state forest—no more getting lost.” The maps are also more detailed than previous versions and highlight the endless recreation opportunities in state forests, such as hiking, mountain biking, birding, berry picking, cross-country skiing, hunting, and horseback, ATV and snowmobile riding. Many state forests also offer campgrounds, fishing piers, boat launches, swimming beaches, and picnic areas. The six new maps are available in time for fall hunting and cover more than 240,000 acres of state forest land and thousands of miles of trails. New geoPDF and paper maps are now available for: Paul Bunyan State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Badoura State Forest in Cass and Hubbard counties Croix State Forest in Pine County Huntersville State Forest in Cass, Hubbard and Wadena counties Lyons State Forest in Wadena County. Chengwatana State Forest in Pine and Chisago counties The Paul Bunyan and Badoura state forests are popular spots for hunters. Combined, they contain two campgrounds and day-use areas, four off-highway vehicle trails, five wildlife management areas (WMA), two ruffed grouse management areas, and four state game refuges. They also have hiking, biking, snowmobiling and skiing trails. The Huntersville and Lyons state forests are popular with hunters. Each state forest contains four WMAs and several miles of trails and roads for off-highway vehicles. Additionally, the Huntersville State Forest offers two campgrounds, a horse campground, and 24 miles of designated horse trails. The St. Croix State Forest offers a variety of year-round recreation opportunities. It has 20 miles of horseback trails and a horse campground with 56 campsites. In the winter snowmobilers can enjoy 42 miles of trails while in the summer mountain bikers can cruise 25 miles of trails. The Boulder Campground and day-use area has 22 secluded campsites and access to Rock Lake for swimming, fishing and boating. The Chengwatana State Forest contains the Snake River Campground and several miles of off-highway motorcycle and all-terrain vehicle trails. Three state water trails run through the forest: Kettle River, Snake River, and St. Croix River. Snowmobliers also use the Matthew Lourey State Trail, which runs through the forest. The new maps also shows locations of National Park Service campsites along the St. Croix River.Digital, geoPDF maps are available on the state forest’s webpage at www.mndnr.gov/stateforests. People can get a free paper map at a local DNR office or the DNR Info Center by sending an email to info.dnr@state.mn.us or calling 888-646-6367, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
