      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 .

Got these pics over one of our baits, i hope he keeps coming in. He has been hangin around for about 8 hours a day/night, the first pics we see of him are at about 6 PM and the last are at about 2 AM. Not huge but i think i would have a hard time passing him up!

I agree...looks like he's really undernourished or maybe has rabies or anthrax or advanced stages of bovine tb....has there been any reports of athrax in the area you're hunting this year troutking? If you take it be sure to wear rubber gloves when gutting and I'd send tissue samples in too....

i think i would actually share these photos with dnr. while no one wants to give up their spot or hunt prospect, this animal is clearly not well and there may be more issues that the picture does not indicate. Only my thoughts, good luck with your chase. Jeff

I guess I did not notice anything wrong with the bear. I am a rookie to bear hunting and have shown these pics to other seasoned bear hunters and no one has said anything. What makes you guys think it is not healthy? Not getting defensive, just wondering what traits you noticed. Thanks for the replies

It's gaunt..skinny...it seems to be "hauched up"(abnormal curvature in it's spine) The belly hair seems to be non existant and the hair on the rest of the body seems patchy as well...and the eyes are Yellow?...what time of the day was this photo, was there a flash? Maybe it's got mange...but it definitly doesn't look healthy to me...take a look at some of the other daylight pictures on other posts here and compare.

The Black looks healthy, but I still say the cinnamon has an abnormal amount of hair loss...in the "nite time" picture it looks like there is hardly any hair left on it's belly and the rump...could be a really bad investation of ticks and rubbing...

Bogwalker...you're a bear researcher...what do you think?
