      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 know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

After all of the deer hunters leave the woods I like to get out and find and harvest chaga! Has anyone had any experiences with this amazing fungus? I've got a friend that is drinking this a few times a day and the tumor on his lungs has shrunk by 75%. No other drugs, just chaga, labrador tea, and some sort of medicine called bear root. 


Chaga is supposed to be one heck of medicine, or one heck of a healthy tea to drink. I've been picking it the last couple of years, and still haven't drank any lol. I just give it away to friends and family who request it. Anyone have any good preservation and preparation methods?

I'm curious about preservation, too. Where I deer hunt it is LOADED with chaga, but by the spray paint on the trees it looks like my whole area is getting logged off this year. Would like to harvest this chaga before it goes to waste...

Ok, I'll give what I've learned. Don't pick chaga from a dead tree, there is a relationship chaga and the tree have while the tree is alive, there are healing characteristics that the fungus have while the tree is alive that don't accompany the tree when it is dead. I've heard from western science folks that while there is some brown inside the chaga it is still usable.
