      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 loved it, too. Except 'fawn' and 'shoot' should never be in the same topic header! Momentary panic. You know, she is really small, but just look at those ears she has to grow in to. The eyes and position on the last one remind me of my dog. Awwww.

Great pics. Those fawns sure are fun to watch. I doubt Mama was ever too far away from this youngster though, unless she was leading a predator or human away from where her baby was hiding.

love the pics grin...although i doubt that they got "seperated", as often the doe will leave and feed(as the fawn cannot travel very far), and have the fawn lay in a concealed area where it is safe from predators because it also is for the most part free of scent. and also often people pick up fawns thinking they are abandoned when really they are not at all abandoned frown. (we just got done discussing this stuff in a class of mine)....not to take away from the great pictures

yes agreed, precisely the reason we didn't want to touch her,, or molest her any... mama was on the other side of the fence and easily jumped it,, and took baby to the opening in it to make her escape... I was grateful to having a longer lens,, so I wasn't "in their face"

thanks!!

I really like the whole series Sue. There is something about a shot of a fawn that always makes me smile. Too bad about the fence but the shots are sweet even with the fence in the shot.

    • I’ve shoveled the end of the driveway four times today. I left the shovel down there for them. No one has used it after crossing. Thankfully it’s melting time next week.  Standing down there and one of them pulls up onto the mound, stops, rips off and throws all the snow back. Our driveway is uphill. Without that space, the car doesn’t get up. Plus, just another pile for the homeowner.   Before this weekends snow, it had melted down to the grass. Yep. Grass dragging ditch riders we had. Luckily there’s enough ice on the driveway on most spots. Everyone is right about it being a right of way...common courtesy to pull up onto the highway seems to have been lost. This gives snowmobiles a bad name.  I shouldn’t need to call the ‘club.’ They can see my driveway when they fly over it....get the problem?  Not everyone is ripping through like this. Some obviously have respect and work over the snow easy.
    • Looking at throwing a front hitch on my truck and picking up a plow, mostly for my house and a couple others within a few miles of me.  Would also like to bring it to the Cabin a few times a year but they all say max travel speed is 45 mph.  Is this just due to over heating or are there other issues it could cause?  Curious if I could just throw it on the rear hitch for highway driving.  That would solve the overheating issue. I have a trailer if needed but would rather not have to drag that around if I don’t have to.
    • Cub, at least the one in Inver Grove Heights has been having whole frozen ducks for 99 cents/pound. I went back and got a couple more yesterday.
    •   Drove home from the Park and Go last night  at 11:30. (after digging out) *grumble grumble*
    • 8" inches last night. We'll save yea some!    
    • Keep in mind fellas they are noted for their rabies propensity.  Don't get paranoid, but be alert.
    • We got snow.  8" Thursday and 8" last night. With 4 driveways to clear I'm getting my riding time on the wheeler.
    • Luckily I don’t have starlings where I live, or house sparrows. The holes on the house I’m buying are designed to prevent starlings from getting inside. I don’t know how effective that is, but like I said, no starlings here
