      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 .

guys like Boar and I always have an overabundance of wild game due to  our skill so sometimes we do use things like loin for jerky or walleye cheeks for fish chowder.  Right Boar?

It's not that we're being wasteful of the finer cuts of fish, fowl, or hooved animals its that we are breaking new territory in our techniques.  Most of you are trying to make the less desirable items into something edible.  We are basically Rennaissance Men and I don't even know what that means but it sounds good.

Most Fish and Game limits were made using Boar and I as the example of how a specie could be decimated if all carried our skills.  Same reason you can only have one wife.  They looked at Boar and my handsomeness and our "prowess" and decided we should be limited to one in really an unlimited world for us.

He can't make spaghetti because he doesn't have to know how with all the loin laying around.

It's not really fair to those of you who struggle in this capacity but it had to be done.  Right Boar?

Very well said LL, its really hard for guys like us to be on a public forum like this, keeping our tru identity a secrete can sometime be tough. Ive had to relocate several times cause my wife has had attempt on her, so I would become single again.  I know the same is tru for you. so we hide here giveing small increments of our vast plethora of knowledge and skill when those are deemed worthy. Its a hard life but when your chosen, your chosen.

for those of you that can't understand try this.

Ya know those Dos Equis beer commercials with "The Most Interesting Man in the World" showing his various talents?  That's modeled after Boar and I.

"He once won the lifetime achievement award, twice"

"He once ran a marathon because it was on his way"

"If he were to pat you on the back you'd put it on your resume"

 Biggfoot looks for us.Just to be clear, they tried to get as close to our looks as possible for that commercial, but he's still way off. if these guys, look close enough at those black and white clips, that is the only films in excistence of us, they had to stop filming those easy feats of skill, cause people were getting seriously hurt and even killed trying to recreat them

I must go now and enlighten the world with greatness and awe! I will be back to educate more later.

I also prepped 4 lbs of vennie last night to spend the day in the dehydrator tomorrow.  But backstraps? None for me thanks, they will be cooked on the grill where they belong.  Would love to fire up the smoker tomorrow, since I'll be home watching the game, but just too dang cold for that.  Guess makin' jerky comes in a close 2nd.

ha ha I have my done....    Had a hunk of backstrap from a deer last year that I paid a butcher to do.  Remember it was cold as heck last year.  My deer was hard as a rock and I didn't want to spend days doing the thaw etc. so paid to have it done.  He did a great job with the burger which I had beef added to.  He doesn't just add beef fat but good beef.  Excellent.  Our burger for the whole year.  This years spike I ground all into burger except for the backstrap which we ate except for one small hunk that is now jerky.

SO it appears that you are not cool if you don't turn your old Venny backstrap into jerky whilst watching the Vikes handle the Seachickens....   ;)

So LL who did you bet on to win tomorrow?

I might do mine in the oven tomorrow, or I might smoke it but I am really considering the smome method.   I have to google it first to see if I have the right stuff to do that.  Wondering if burning tires are involved???     Sorry Boar I love you Buddy but I had to mention it....    :D
