      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 .

They can keep Keith Warren. I've only seen one of his shows and that was enough for me. He read a letter from a viewer and instead of addressing what were in my view legitimate questions he spent 5 minutes berating the guy and calling him every name in the book that wouldnt get cut or bleeped by the censors. Jackwagon lvl..BOSS.

Greg My 2 cents on the deer classic is it needs to keep up with the times, deer hunting is changing, it's about QDM: land management, herd management and food plotting. These subjects are what most of the seminars should be about so people can learn and understand it, the celebrities should be teaching it like QDMA's Kip Adams and Growing Deers Dr. Grant Woods for example. Hunting celebs are o.k Nicole is good to look at but thats about it.

Then you have to have tractors instead of trucks, seed companies, food plot impliments and logging equipment booths along with Mn DNR and Fish and Wildlife there to show what either one has to offer the landowner as far as cost share programs for wildlife on your property ect.

The toughest one is to get people to bring in their mounts to display thats probably the #1 reason why people go. Flip side to that is the state deer harvest is lower every year and that means less deer for people to bring which makes seminars like herd management even more valuable to educate deer hunters.

Good points guys and I hear yaw on the QDM!! I only mentioned some of the talent coming and have another nice list to meet your needs for land management etc. Tom Mesnard will be doing Land Management seminars on food plots, and how to properly manage your property. www.tctlm.com Also have Cabelas Jeremy Flinn Wildlife Management Biologist on whitetail hunting and Land Management. They say he is really good and interesting. Lastly Kyle from Habitat Now will be speaking on habitat and how to improve things in MN. I hope that helps guys and trying to please everyone. I also hear you loud and clear on the Deer situation in MN and hope things improve soon. Savy

If you haven't heard him, sit in on Billy Molls's talk. Alaskan hunting guide who films his client's guided hunts. I have heard him a couple of times up here at the Duluth sports show. I was disappointed he isn't going to be up here this year. His talks are a breath of fresh air over your typical "how to shot big bucks" yawner seminars. He has some good videos out also.

Beware though, he is a Packer fan from cheeseland!

IMO since the NSC has taken over the MN DEER Classic it is getting better, as time goes on the show will prove itself! But really though it takes the people and these comments to really make the show worth the price of addmission. Come down to the show and give support if you really want this show to improve. Send in your comments , let the staff know your thoughts!The NSC has really good communication and they care about what the people want. Just My 2 cents

    • 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!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
