      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 .

Wi 2016 HUnt

Recommended Posts

Getting pretty busy here at work so will not have much to write. We got lucky this last season in WI and punched 4 tags. We pulled a triple on one setup and I was able to take a tough Tom that was giving me the slip for a couple days after scouting and watching him in the same field for two days. I was going to try and save him for a friend but he ended up not coming out so I went after him. Took me a sometime just to target him for him to make a mistake after getting by me in the morning. He sure liked to gobbler yelp would gobble a little but he sure yelped a lot. A hen in the morning saved him called in both but she beat him to me and walked out to him and pulled him away from me. That evening was able to get that hen to come in and he sat in the field for about another 30 minutes and he couldn't take it any longer and finally closed the distance and came in to check us out right as the rain started to come down hard. Was a great spring and already putting in vacation for next spring. Wish we had another month of this. Was nice to sleep in to 5am the last couple days better than the 3:45 .

Good luck who are still after them

It was a great sight to see since one of the shooters was his first bird. We put 4 jakes to bed that night but from talking to the landowner we knew there were 6 long beards hanging together on this chunk.

The gobbling was amazing and the most I heard up here and not in NE. I saw one bird hit the ground so I hit them with a couple yelps and the next birds started flying to the field next thing you know we had 16 birds on the ground and all out in the field working towards us. Four Tom's ,6 Jakes and 6 hens. They fought a little strutted a lot and gobbled there heads off in the field.

One of those mornings it all worked out. Told out new hunter you don't always have mornings like that.

    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL.

    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
