      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 .

Duck Hunting Dog Stand

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any instructions methods they used to build their own dog stand. I primarly hunt in cattails and bog and want a way to keep my dog elevated and dry.

I know about the ruff stand and sport stand but would rather not part with the $160.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I really dont want to spend that type of money but am thinking of biting the bullet.

A 2'x3' piece of 2" pink foam painted camo or with brown carpet on top.

I was thinking "DIY" at one of the big box stores the other day...so much easier to spend $20 on materials and make it yourself rather than part with 160 big ones.

Any "DIY" ideas or plans that people have successfully implemented?

Surface Tension - what type of folding chair are you talking about?

I just cant think of a good way to make something that is manageble to carry and that will work effectively sitting in a cattail marsh, but have to imagine not everyone is spending the 160. So any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

We've used the small Otter sleds. We can skid the decoys to the pond and then use it as a small boat for the dog to sit in. We generally use a couple of floating bogs around it to stabalize it.

Good Luck!
