      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!!!

Subject: MN Declares War on USA

Oh, dat Sven!!!!


Always good for a chuckle, especially if you have any roots in MN.

President Barack Obama was in the Oval Office when his telephone rang.

"Hello, President Obama," a heavily accented Norwegian voice said. "'Dis

here is Sven, over here at the VFW bar in Ramsey, Minnesota. Ve

don't like some a yer policies so I am callin' to tell ya that we are

officially declaring war on ya!"

"Well, Sven," Barack replied, "This is indeed important news! How big is

your army?"

"Right now," said Sven, after a moment's calculation, "there is myself, my

cousin Knute, my next-door-neighbor Ole, and the whole dart team from the


Barack paused, "I must tell you Sven that I have one million men in my

army waiting to move on my command."

"Wow," said Sven, "I'll haf ta call ya back!"

Sure enough, the next day, Sven called again. "Mr. Obama, da war is still on!

We have managed to acquire some infantry equipment!"

"And what equipment would that be, Sven?" Barack asked.

"Vell sir, ve got two combines, a bulldozer, and three big farm tractors."

President Obama sighed. "I must tell you Sven, that I have 16,000 tanks

and 14,000 armored personnel carriers. Also I've increased my army to one

and a half million since we last spoke."

"All right den, said Sven. "I'll be getting back to ya."

Sure enough, Sven rang again the next day... "President Obama, da war is

still on! We have managed to git ourselves airborne! We up an' modified

Ole's ultra-light vit a couple'a shotguns in da cockpit, and four big boys

from the Norskie Cafe haf joined us as vell!"

Barack was silent for a minute then cleared his throat.

"I must tell you, Sven, that I have 10,000 bombers and 20,000 fighter

planes. My military complex is surrounded by laser-guided, surface-to-air

missile sites. And since we last spoke, I've increased my army to TWO


"Two million you say?," said Sven, "l'll haf' to call you back.

Sure enough, Sven called again the next day. "President Obama! I am sorry

to have to tell you that we have had to call off this here war."

"I'm sorry to hear that," said Barack. "Why the sudden change of heart?"

Vell, sir," said Sven, "we've all sat ourselves down and had a long chat

over a few beers, and come to realize that there's yust no vay ve can feed two million prisoners."


If you're from Minnesota, you won't even need to be told to pass this on.

    • Nice when things fall into place.  Congrates Wanderer! Need a caller give me ring.
    • But there would be more and bigger deer walking around. Probably better age structure too. 
    •   Well although all-out war on Deer for a week with any hunting tool would be interesting.   It would kind of take the romance out of it if your trying to use a Bow or a smoke gun and someone is snipeing your Deer at 200 yards with a rifle! 
    •   Well, first off if you are talking public lands it's tough to restrict how people legally harvest game because it's public.    And you are right,it's hard to compel farmers to give up income that they rely on just so someone can hunt something. My guess is if you are willing to invest your own dollars into your own personal place to hunt you can manage it more to your liking.    It would be good. The other option is to do what other states have done and that is having fewer people own larger tracts of land that they manage privately and you,as a consumer,can pay for the level of hunting you want. Texas has this where you pay based on the size of the deer. I suppose Minnesota could do this as well. Charge hunters per point on public land or something like that.    I think we should just move every season to a one week period around Thanksgiving. Archery,rifle, muzzleloader etc. Out of the rut and everyone on the same even playing field as far as time goes. Reducing the time they are pressured will help the herd.  Nobody should need any longer than that to hunt. Most of my life we only had two days to get our deer.  
    • well the redwing blackbirds are back. making all kinds of noise on the frozen pond today.
    •   Actually, the majority of the state's population does not hunt deer but most do drive cars so generally most people do not want more or larger deer. It's not just the voice of hunters that count.
    •   Can we start keeping fish next year?? Or only if they have 8 points?  
    •   Yeah, one of those little orange dotty things!
