      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 .

I had two adult coyotes come within less than 75 yards when I was turkey hunting a two weeks ago. I was hoping they would got closer, they must of smelt me or didn't like the blind.

Thats happened a couple of times when I have been trukey hunting.

I keep hearing them on the river, but I suppose everyone does when they are hollering at the moon.

Had one run right in front of me south of Montgomery on 13...I should have sped up, but I had the wife's car so maybe I did the right thing smile

You might be hearing the pups right now, they cant keep their mouths shut this time of the year! I went scouting on Sunday morning, and found an adult pair and a juvenille coyote along with 4 little fur balls playing around the den. The pups were barking and howling all morning.

Man I feel for ya, your in a tough situation. If I were you I would put up my better ones and send them to NAFTA or FHA, then sell your average ones to a local fur buyer.

I got rid of everything I had last season, mostly to a local fur buyer, I took a butt kicking, but on the upside I am not holding any fur over. The fur market is looking no better for the up coming season

I went threw the work of putting up the 75 from this spring. Sent them to NAFA for the upcoming sale, hope things turn around alittle. Got good at it by the end. The 8.5 pounds of castor is what will make the money.

Did anywhere from 3-5 a day depending on my rotation of boards. I am just getting into putting my own fur up. Started with six, but that was to slow so i got enough boards for 15. I work for our city and am on call so I had the time, takes about 30-40 min to flesh and board them. Also did a few late coons and a couple coyotes, two otter and some rats. Hope to put up everything next year. Takes time, but nice to look at them all hanging around.

Those are some pretty yotes Lee, and that is a nuice pile of castor, I mean beaver you have there. I am going to start pulling the beaver out here in the next few weeks to put them up. Never done it before, but I bought a shefeild knife 2 years ago for that purpose, it is kind of an expensive wall decoration, so I think it is time to learn how to use it.
