      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 .

Male or Female?

Recommended Posts

I will be getting a GSP pup in June and I was wondering if there are really that big of differences between males and females as far as training and temperment goes. We have always had females (Brittanies), so it was just assumed that we would get another, but I just got to thinking, whats the difference?

... whats the difference?

IMO, it boils down to their stance when urinating.

You will get a good hunting dog out of a male or a female. I know a lot of people that swear by one sex over the other. I have had both and, again IMO, it doesn't matter.

Here's how I decided...I got sick of the urinating on everything issue. Pee on the decoy bag, pee on the gun lying down, pee on your hunting luggage as you get it out of truck and set it down. I never thought male dogs had such a big bladder. So we switched to females and spay them.

If you don't care about male or female pups, I also got a tidbit from a lab breeder/trainer that was a good friend of the family, pick a male with a bit of a female personality or pick a female with a bit of a male personality. Then you get the best traits of both worlds and it's worked for me with my females. I will be getting my new GWP in September and boy I can't wait.

Not all the time smile My male squats more often than not. He gets reprimanded when he lifts his leg.

Females, you have to deal with their cycle till you spay them.

Males, you have to deal with constant hard-ons, wiener-drips all over the house (although that goes away once neutered), and more humping than females.

I don't really think it matters either way. Personal preference.

Thanks for the responses. I was just curious because I remember back in the day, they used to say a male was a bigger runner and more agressive but I guess thats probably not the case.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
