      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 can't have it both ways, you just can't!

Anyone else just watch this on the Weather Channel?  This clown spends the whole show running around the North shore talking to people about how the Wolves are changing and becoming more aggressive and dying off because of Climate change.

Here is how he summed up the Wolf problem in Minnesota at the very end of the show.

"If climate change continues to bring (Wait-for-it) colder Arctic temperatures to Northern Minnesota, this will continue to reduce their pray, make the Wolves more aggressive and limit their survival in the future!"

 It's either Getting Hotter or Colder you nut jobs but you can have it both ways to keep fitting your agendas!  :crazy::crazy::crazy:

 

Natural Born Monsters - Gray Wolf (Episode 6)
Episode 6:

Gray Wolf

Over 2,200 Gray Wolves are estimated to roam the forests of northern Minnesota; several fatal attacks have been the result of the wolves acting against their instincts.

This is not to support global warming but you are describing a situation where you are using a local example to debunk a global phenomenon.  GW deals with AVERAGE global temps meaning some local temps can be hotter and some can be colder yet not disprove the theory. Just saying. 

I agree that the people you quoted probably have an agenda and are trying to use limited data to fit their narrative.

Haven't they been estimating the population to be 2200 for the past 30 years or so?

Your a little behind the times. They now call it "Climate Change" and not Global Warming as much anymore because it was getting harder to fit all their end of world scenarios. Climate Change is a fit-all: warmer, colder, wetter, drier, and your SUV and cow farts are causing it! ;)

We have been undergoing climate change and global warming for the last several thousand years.  Where I am typing this was under a very large pile of ice back in the day.   Fortunately we experienced, for some reason not related to mankind, a significant warming. 

It is generally agreed that  the increase in CO2 from human activities will cause some warming.  The big argument is how much and how fast.    Given the population trends as countries become developed, it is not out of the question that the population 100 years from now will be lower or at least not much higher than it is now, which would also impact the projections.

Del, you really need to get a job with the EPA or climate change Org, folks. They love people who talk out both sides to cover every base! :lol:

I think you're giving to much credit to a show called Natural Born Monsters.  

Facts aren't a big issue for most shows all they want is drama.  Ever seen the Mountain Men show?  A little editing and creative story telling can make a guy living 20 minutes from town living in a $300,000 home look like a mountain man living off the land. Doesn't matter that he gets his food from the local Pick n Save and the only bear problem he has is the one that keeps knocking over his bird feeder.

Pretty much every developed country has a fertility rate below replacement value of 2.1 children per woman. 

Check it out.   http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/SP.DYN.TFRT.IN

Yeah, just not sure you can state "will be" & "at least not much" in the same statement as facts.

In my opinion, of course.   ;)

It is a matter of demographics and death rates.   Not enough kids being born at present, but demographics mean population will continue to rises.  Eventually it will level off and start to decline if birth rates remain low.  How fast depends on death rates.  The trouble with the future is that it is so hard to predict.   So I hedged a little.  

The point is that in the developed world the population rise is slowing and seems to be headed for an actual decline.  The time frame is somewhat uncertain.

    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
    • Lunch.....fit for a king! Roast beef commercial with left over beef roast. Just thought I'd share. 
    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
