      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 .

  9. Deer heart

    Great! To all the Coyotes and Wolves up in our hunting area. I hope they all waste away!
  10. Kdrill or Nils

    The only problem we have had with the kdrill is today we had ice build up between the center point cutter and the first tooth on the chipper blades. Once I cleaned that out it drilled like day one. Don’t need any other auger.
  11. Will it sink?

    How much ice do you need to feel comfortable putting your perm shack out there? I have a 4x6 made from 2x4s and thick plywood. Its on the heavier side. Im thinking 7-8 inches.
  12. Roast beef

    All that smoke and spice to try and make pork belly edible.
  13. Deer heart

    Didn't they draw kinda hard? So, who's "Web"? You turning Boaranese? Or ya have a lithp, thweetie? Cwazy wabbit!
  14. Roast beef

    Yep, need to kill the bacon taste!!;
  15. Deer heart

    My brother smoked deer hearts, he slices the heart before brining, that's a pretty dense muscle to marinate whole. I quit eating deer heart, animal organs gave a lit of cholesterol I've been told. Web... Bite me!!!
  16. Roast beef

    I hope Remi bites ya for that!!! *CHOMP*
  17. Fishin report for Lake Iwanttobethere..

    Congrats on the buck Bobby
  18. Meat bandsaw

    Those go in a heartbeat for good prices to restaurants, etc., the minute the word gets out. Usually go on a preview sale and never hit the floor.
  19. Roast beef

    Grab the catch em up smurf!!
  20. Deer heart

    Wrap 'em in bacon and invite Smurfy over...................
  21. Roast beef

    Ahh...ahh ahhh.............
  22. Roast beef

    Almost time!!
  23. Deer heart

    good eats!!
  24. Deer heart

    A few of our guys hover around the deer with ice cream buckets or freezer bags to get every heart they can get. I usually make them into jerky.
  25. Meat bandsaw

    I've done that plenty in the past and find that stuff generally brings a pretty high price. Truth be told I purchased a grocery store/ butcher shop about 18 years ago when it closed. I got some of the equipment but lots of it was sold for good money and secondly the commercial stuff is usually too big and have bigger motors than I care to run as a hobby. The commercial bandsaws are usually 3-10 hp and some are 3 phase.
  26. Yesterday

    Del's gonna tell ya that spreads CWD......
