      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 .

Late Strutting

Recommended Posts

I saw a long beard strutting with two hens over the weekend and thought, "Hmmm, that seems pretty late....." Pulled up and had some fun mouth calling to him for the kids. They got a kick out of seeing him gobble back.

Then this morning on the way to work I saw one strutting for a single hen... Is it just me? or does this seem really late in the year to see this activity??

I've seen birds strut out into the end of June, though agreed, we're on the tail-end of gobbling and breeding activity.

The birds we were hunting Monday morning strutted for an hour or two after they flew down from the roost in an open corn-field. They too were very willing to gobble and respond favorably to calling.

The hen that was with them? She was less interested in being chased around by the lead-tom, and even more uninterested in the 3 jakes that more than once, took matters into their own hands......errrr....wings?

One day left, I'm heading out Thursday to see if we can't get a bird for a friend.

The birds I have been working the last couple of days seem to gobble on the roost and then, are silent, they are not very receptive to calling, I thought I had them this morning but nothing, as I left the property I seen them 1/4 to the east of where I was, the tom was still strutting and he seemed to have half a dozen birds with him, I am not sure if they we jakes or hens, all I could catch was the heads moving in the tall grass. Thursday morning should be good it has to be!!! There seems to be alot of crow activity, I don't recall this much other years I guess I will have to listen to that in the future.
