      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 .

My 2nd WI bird is lucky #13

Recommended Posts

Cooter

Went out this morning with my dad for my second WI season. Had 3 birds gobbling up on a ridge across from us...one was pretty quiet but the other two were plain out fired up, gobbling every 15-20 seconds. They had hens with them and gobbled well until about 45 min after light. Had 2 jakes come up and sniff the decoys at 10 yards - you know you're close when you can see em blink!

We made a loop and ended up finding a willing bird about 7:30, beautiful setup just below a little rise....like usual he popped over for a look and was within striking distance of the 870. Nice bird, 22.5lbs and 10.5" beard. No spur on one leg and the other was broke off, I would guess it would have been a .75" spur....2 yr old bird.

The cool part he was the 13th mature tom I've harvested in WI! Also great was my dad bought breakfast in Eleva and the good looking blonde owner insisted we take a picture of me and her with the bird! So if you swing through redneck Eleva Wi stop in for a peek at my bird.

What's interesting is the last 4 birds I've shot have been on the first day - several years ago I shot 3 birds on the last day of the season, after hunting at least 3 previous days. Of those 3, one was at 11:30, one at 12:15, and one at 1:30 - pushing it way too close. Neither is good IMO - you get one right away you're done. But getting up 4 or 5 days in a row at 4am and hunting all day is a bit much. Would be nice to get one each year late in the morning on the second or third day.

This is great. Mr. turkey slayer is complaining about getting them too late, or worse, too soon. I think it's high-time you faced a bad-bird that will make you happy to see a track, chunk of bird poop, or wing-feather in the woods!

I know what you mean though, I'm the same way....you want a good hunt (and not to have to go back to work right away), but when bark is growing your backside, it's about time to get a gobbler already.
