      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 .

THE DREADER!!!

Recommended Posts

Fairly new hunter here and have been searching online for a few neccessities. I came across this, thedreader. It looks pretty efficent and legit without owning an atv. Does anyone here have this? If so, any comments? The name alone almost intrigues me enough to just get it!

Personally, I wouldn't spend my money on it. Just one more thing to carry into the woods when it only takes 1 minute to find a stick for free. It is not that hard to bread a stick to the correct size.

The woods are full of sticks. Just carry a piece of rope, find a stick. Presto your in business.......

The sad thing is, there are a lot of companies out there who are more than willing to make a $$$ or two on young inexperienced hunters. Many a gimic out there trying to do just that. This is just another example of it.

I use my tree stand saftey harness to drag if any distance tie it to the d ring and then to the neck or antlers and start walking, and a stick is the green way to go for a spreader grin

Nothing sad about capitalism in action.

Products like this are the realization of the American dream for those that come up with them.

I've got one of these. My brother in law used it opener after getting one in the morning.

We found it was pretty easy to drag, but the nicest part was using it to gut the deer. It worked really slick. Once we got the stomach/chest cavity cut up, we inserted it into the rib cage. It really helped to keep the chest cavity open. The diaphragm was super easy to get out, and especially the esophagus.

Since it was about 60 that day, it came in handy to cool the meat until we could get it boned.

Give it a shot. I heard they're only like 15 bucks some places...

    • Dandy Gobbler Don!
    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
