      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 .

Try a search on the DNR HSOforum, they list areas that they've been spotted in. A few guys have mentioned seeing them in northern WI in the WI forum.

Wild boars/pigs are very destructive. If you like to hunt ground nesting birds like pheasants and ruffed grouse, you don't want wild pigs around as they are very efficient at finding the nests and wiping them out. They also will take a fawn. They multiply worse than rabbits. They usually get into an area by escaping from hunting ranches. A friend from Kentucky tells me they would do anything to get rid of the things, because of all the damage they do to wildlife and crops. Also they are a disease risk to hog farmer's herds. IMHO I would not support a business that has them in the Midwest. If you want to hunt them, go South as the farmer's absolutely hate them. Good winter trip and you can do your part to control a pest.

About three years back we had a pretty healthy population, there was speculation that they were escaped off a game farm and after a few mild winters we had them all over the place. We manage to take 6 of them on our land, neighbors took a few as well. They did quite a bit of damage to our plots and land. Not sure if the wolves combined with the harsh winters took them all out as we haven't seen sign of them since then.
