      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 .

Scoring formula

Recommended Posts

Borch, or anyone who knows,

Amidst all this contest info, is there a post that has the actual scoring formula? I don't mean to be lazy and not look it up but unfortunately I don't get a lot of time to cruise all the posts. If its already out there that would be great, or if you could reply with it, that would be great too!

By the way, was it just us or were the birds in SE MN call shy in general for the D season?! crazy.gif

Decoys too for that matter. It was like there was a 40 yard bubble around all four of us when we used either. Fortunately my luck went from bad to better on day 3. grin.gif

OK, I took a break from work to satisfy my curiousity.

Since you need to convert from standard measurements to decimal, I will give directions to the formula table instead.

NWTF.com, click on for hunters, then click how to score.

I've heard people say spur length counts most and now I see why (formula wise). Weight counts the least. crazy.gif

My 25.1 pounder from 348D scored 66.85. Inch and an eighth spurs and 9 and 5/8 beard. Average beard and spurs on heavy bird doesn't help any. frown.gif

No matter, I was equally happy with both my Merriams Jake and last Saturday's bird. They're all special. cool.gif

Even the one's you "almost" get. wink.gif

Sounds to me like you are having a great spring. Congrats on the birds.

Wanderer, I think you may have missed a step in your directions to the scoring formula.

Here's an online form you can enter the data into.

http://www.nwtf.org/all_about_turkeys/turkey_score.html

I hunted 349D last weekend. I posted a report in another thread. Basically it was really quiet and couldn't really get any birds to respond to calling.

Ah, Lunch!

Cheetah,

Thanks for that link - much easier! It came up as 66.8125 on that calculator. I've never scored a bird before, does that sound right?

Harvey Lee,

Thanks and yep, its been a good spring! After the Black Hills (public land) hunt I promised to kiss the ground at the farm we hunt down SE and thank God for private land! And I did! The Black Hills are beautiful and I'll go back but I didn't realize HOW good we have it at the farm. Its the only place I've hunted turkeys before.

We're not the only group that has permission but fortunately we keep ourselves spaced out by at least two seasons. The four of us go out with a plan so we know where each of us are and work the birds from there. Started there about 15 years ago.

By the way, who's your favorite driver?
