      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 .

  2. Roast beef

    You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
  3. Meat bandsaw

    I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix. On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other. Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar? I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.
  4. Mechanical broadhead recommendations

    Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
  5. Fold out bench

    Awesome thank you
  6. Roast beef

    Sorry Charlie. Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place. I am there too, so come on over.... Just leave the politics here.
  7. Whole Smoked Chicken

    Gee Dave, you are sure a believer in the overprotective government. I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165. You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing.
  8. Roast beef

    Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.
  9. Roast beef

    Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann. Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general.
  10. Roast beef

    I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
  11. Roast beef

    Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it. www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden.
  12. Pushbutton start

    Not sure with Hyundai, but Ford has a backup slot if the key fails to work wirelessly. A good reading of that owners manual will tell you.
  13. Yesterday
  14. Mechanical broadhead recommendations

  15. Mechanical broadhead recommendations

  16. lets see your ice rides

    Love it going through the woods and swamp. I wonder how much weight that thing could pull in some good snow? Put a seat on the front of a Lil' Munchkin house and ride her out there!
  17. lets see your ice rides

  18. lets see your ice rides

    Can you post the vid?
  19. Mechanical broadhead recommendations

    Well I'm not sure what to think now. Shot a beautiful 8 pointer last night at about 30 yards and only got about 6" of penetration. Could not find it and had to work today. Gonna go look again tomorrow morning. Shot looked good must have just caught shoulder plate or something, but still why so little penetration. All other rage shots had no issues. Either way I'm making myself sick thinking about it.
  20. lets see your ice rides

    Seriously considering a snow dog. Saw a video this morning and they look pretty darn fun. Probably not as practical as a used wheeler but definitely a fun toy.
  21. Roast beef

    Not exactly roast beef, but Reinhard1's recipe for a chuck roast seemed to be an HSO favorite many moons ago:
  22. Wild Regular Season 2017-18
