      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

More Fur Flying Last Night!

Recommended Posts

We had a pretty good night again last with two more taken. Should of had a couple more.

First set was a dud but has produced in the past.

Second set we called off and on for a while and at the 50 minute mark I hear Mitch on my right say theres two, I look over to the right and see one standing there, 60 yards out with another hitting the brakes 10 yards behind it. They're directly downwind and before we can get on them they take off full speed going East. I saw them hit the treeline as I'm trying to put distress on. I get the caller on and watch. 30 seconds later here they come running straight in. They stopped and I'm telling Mitch to shoot the one on the right on the count of three. I asked him if he was on it and thought he said yes. I count and pull the trigger and mine drops but the male takes off. He later told me he was watching them run full out across the swamp and as soon as the distress came on they both stopped and turned on a dime a raced back. Here's my nice female #12 for the year.


Third set was a dud but we had one bark and howl at us when we got back to the truck from across the road. We'll try for him a little later.

Mitch was getting pretty cold so we took a longer drive and I told him he could stay in the truck on the last one but he toughed it out.

I figured I'd just use coyote vocals instead of playing around so I just worked the howler. Mitch was on my left and 15 minutes in two come flying in. I saw them when they were 10 yards to his right. They turned to run and Mitch fired and snow went flying. The female ran straight West while the male ran back where they came from. Mitch took another shot but after we double checked he missed agian. I looked to the right and another one was running in. I have no idea what it was doing but it was just over a slight rise in the field and it must have ran back and forth 4 times before it finally stopped and Mitch put it down. We called it a night after that as we had to run the furs in to the buyer this morning and somebody didn't want any more sleeping pictures taken of him.

Here's Mit and #3

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
