      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 .

Texas Hog Hunt

Recommended Posts

Last week I had the opportunity to head down to North Texas to do my first hog hunt, it was a last minute deal my father in law and a couple others were heading down and one guy had to drop out so a spot opened up for me.  The two guys that set it up went with this outfitter last fall and shot 20+ hogs in 2 nights between the two of them so we were pumped to go.  All hunting was done at night spot and stalk up to 40 yards, the guide had the night vision would get us ready and would turn on the spot light and the shooting started.  Was a very different experience for sure and also very difficult.  Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side first night a cold front have moved though and it was breezy and in the high 50s, the second night there were massive storms in Oklahoma so the sky was lighting up for the first couple hours nonstop but after the storms moved though we got into a few pigs but it was a tough hunt.  Because it was so slow we were invited back for a half price hunt because the main guide didn't want us to think that's how pig hunting was.  A couple pictures of the hogs we got.

Since it was all private land no license needed, if we went to any public land we would have had to purchase a small game license.  I was very surprised and also bummed out they toss a lot of the hogs I was told when they get bigger the meat was very mushy and a lot of them have worms so they are very selective on what hogs they do cut up.  We did keep the meat off the one my father and I shot just haven't had time to cook it up yet.  It varies but its $150-$200 a day with the outfitter we went with.

Would be interesting to see how it tastes?  With all the states with hogs that just want to get rid of them. If they taste like Bacon and Ham I can't see how it would be so hard to take a bunch out! :)
