      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 .

Grouse Books

Recommended Posts

With grouse season just around the corner, I'm looking for some suggestions on some classic grouse hunting books. Not looking for "how to" type books. Anyone have any favorites? All the better if they talk about hunting over a pointing dog, as I wander the woods with my faithful Brittany.

Hope everyone has a great hunting season...

Thanks,

Timberdoodle Tales - Grouse and Woodcock hunting written by Tom Waters. He's a Minnesota boy so things will sound familiar. I read this one every season. I can almost smell the leaves turning when read it. Tom mostly run brits.

Ted Lundrigan is another Minnesota boy. Hunting the Sun is his best book and Grouse and Lesser Gods isn't bad either. He's a shorthair man but has buddies with all types of dogs.

The Trickiest thing in Feather - Corey Ford....a classic must read.

Grouse Feathers and More Grouse Feathers and Drummer in the Woods - Burton Spiller could tell a tale for sure and loved grouse more than most.

Tattered Autumn Sky - Tom Davis...he's still kicking and his writings still good

Not Grouse in particular, but Robert Ruark's The Old Man and the Boy and The Old Man's Boy Grows older are my favorite hunting book ever written.

Grouse Hunter's Guide (Dennis Walrod) is another. Not a classic, but well written, solid info. A cpl of new ideas/strategies for me.

Robert Ruark's work, as mentioned above is not about Grouse, but it is classic timeless hunting literature. It takes an excellent author to make the dog an integral character in the story. Ruark does it with ease. Very good stuff.

Grouse and Woodcock in the Blackwater/Canaan-George Bird Evans

Nice limited edition signed book. More of a journal. Not the most entertaining but you can picture the hunts.

Grouse of North America-Tom Huggler.

I'm a guy. I like all the glossy pictures.

Grouse and Woodcock A Gunners Guide-Don L. Johnson. Good book.

The Goruse Hunter's Almanac-Chris Dorsey. Interesting book.

The complete Book of Woodcock hunting-Frank Woolner. Good book.
