      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 .

Gambels Quail

Recommended Posts

This guy has been hangin' around the neighborhood for quite awhile. Obviously raised by someone because they are a desert southwest quail. A local wildlife biologist said it's the second confirmed spotting he's heard of. The other was in the Blackberry area, This one is right here in Grand Rapids.

That sure is a plump looking one. A lot more food here, the are, like you said, From the southwest. Desert and mountains are were they live. They are a flock type of bird, ussually in groups of 50 or more. This spring I was golfing in Las Vegas and saw a whole brood of babies and hens, the chicks were no bigger than bumble bees. Cute as all heck. They are quite tasty too, maybe, just like the coyote, they have migrated here.

They aren't initialed "GQ" for nothing. They are a nice looking bird. Going through GR on the way to Wabana 8/1. Is it near Highway 2 or 38? It would be neat to see it in person.

Thats really neat. I was taking the kids to daycare once and a chukar was standing in the sitters driveway. I checked all around but nobody knew anything about a breeder. I saw it again a week later but that was it. Chukars are common at game farms but a Gambels thats pretty cool. If they are gonna migrate here maybe an elk will too and I never have to climb mountains to get one.
