      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 .

I would not go to anyone but Jerry at Flyway Taxidermy. He is in St. Cloud. But worth the drive in my opinion. I really don't think you can find anyone else that would do a better job.

+1.

Google his HSOforum. His showroom is unbelievable. Best there is by far....and considering he has world titles to his name, he's not overly expensive.

You could check out Ken Asproth as he is one of the very best bird guys out there. I believe he still does work and he lives on the north end of the cities.

I can second, or third the recommendation for Jerry at Flyway Taxidermy. I brought him a Goldeneye last weekend...he is 250 miles from my house, and after seeing his showroom and talking to him in person, I would go there again and again. Awesome guy to visit with and if you check the prices for top notch jobs, he is priced right!

+1 more for Flyway Taxidermy

If you want to get a good idea regarding the quality of someone's work you need to check out their customer work in person. A lot of folks post nice pics of their competition work on a HSOforum, it gets people thinking their prized birds will look the same, and they're disappointed when they get them back. Jerry's work is top notch and you can see plenty of customer work in his show room.

On the flip side people need to discuss the quality of their birds with the taxidermist. Even a great taxidermist can't turn a shot up bird with pin feathers into a masterpiece.

EXACTLY............................

If the bird is bad enough I encourage them to consider waiting till they get a better bird otherwise a dead mount is a last resort......

Even then I confirm the position possibility when the birds thawed being most are frozen when they come in..

Thats where digital comes into play.
