      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 .

BOAR SCORES!!!!!!!!

My last topic was about havin a freind let me hunt his site an how to go about starting to hunt it with no prior stand or shooting lanes. Well on friday, I went in to set up a stand an the only place to do so was on a big aspen over looking an old bushwaked trail, that was used to bait. I set my stand up only six feet of the ground cause any higher I would be silloeted like a big blob on a tree, this hieght allowed me to blend in with the forest brush. So after setting up my stand I baited an sprayed the area with bear scent logan berry formula, very sweet smelling stuff, an left. Saturday came an found me baiting in the late afternoon after discussing the terms of what to do with you guys, it had'nt been hit so I backed off. this mourning found me at the bait site about ten oclck an it had been hit but not finished so I just sprayed the area again with the same scent an baited a littel more an came home. I decided that I cant shoot a bear from the couch an went hunting, I entered the bait site about an sprayed the area again about five thirty an climbed into stand. Six bells rolled around an out popped a 2nd year cub an gobbled up some goodies an left in about five minuest. Hmmmmm. this is a good sign. Mean while I was texting my son who has asperergers syndrom, he was at a church youth gathering an without me there he was very uncomfortable, so I was texting back an forth to give him encouragement to stay an he did so. About 7:30 I textd him to see how it was going..........I did'nt get to send cause all of a sudden it was like king kong was coming through the brush, sapplings were cracking an swaying an this guys snorting an puffing an stopped ten feet from my stand, TEN FREAKING FEET mind you. remember my stand was only six feet off the ground. I was about to explode, my heartt was as big as foot ball an jack hammering so bad I thought he"d here it. Holy Sh it. He was behinf some brush an was looking back an forth up an down the trail an a few times i saw his right eye meet mine an I thought i was busted, he started to turn to his left an looked about to back out an SKABLAMMO. Dead bear. Oh yea he came down wind of me I have to thank primos silver xp for that one. I did not get it scaled but I know it's about the same or bbigger than my biggest which is 325lb, his head is biggetr than a five gallon bucket lid. I got a guy to come an help me load it into my suburban an we could not do it. I'm 6'2 an an aint no slouch. He went an got his loader tracktor so we could get into my suburban. It aint as big as hooksets but it's big bear. Nose to tail almost 6 feet. Anyway that was the most exciting hunt I could ever imagine, just awsome!I will get pictures posted, they are not the best but they'll do. Later boar.

thanks guys, working real hard to post pictures, that whole photo bucket thing su cks, so I'll try to send them to superbee he did't it last time. Yea gissert, I'm still trying to get him on the ice, he's gotten soft over the years, he likes to sit on a bench an make red mist at long distances, which is cool cause I'wish i was as accurate as he is. Someday, but till then I'll take his bear. Boar

Way to go Boar!!!!

Thanks for calling & sharing the hunt w/me on it too. (However, I hope your voice someday returns to its usual lower tone).

You keep taking them big boys and I'll keep you ballistically supported until my turn comes around... With that said, yes I dig shooting at a distance, but under those conditions I am not sure I would have made a 10' shot & maintained control of my bowels at the sametime..

Again, Great job Bro!!

    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
