      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 .

SKUNKS

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of skunks for good without having to shoot them. I was told to use rat poison in an egg about 3 inches under the dirt but I have a dog and cats and do not want them to get into it. Any Ideas??

Live trap a pulley and water????? Sounds horrible but the skunks I have encountered on my property have all been doing damage and all have had a poor experience with lead. The damage I speak of is duck and pheasant nest destruction. From what I have experienced you get rid of one if the food is there the next one is coming.

My co-worker live traps them using canned cat food and then he pulls a tarp over the cage and puts a metal dryer tube under the tarp and connects it to the exhaust of his truck. It will put them to sleep without them spraying. It has worked for him 5 times now and he is hoping that he has no more running around his house.

I had skunks under my deck last year. My deck is only about 2 feet off the ground. I put moth balls under it and never saw them again. it did smell a bit for a week or two but they left and never came back!!

My co-worker swears by trapping them, and then dispatching them with a shot through the lungs. The rational is that this does not allow them to take the breath needed to expel their spray.

He swears by it.

I'll have to try the lung deal. I've had good luck with a precise shot in the head but I'm usually only 50% with that due to keeping my distance from the trap.
