      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 .

Dr. James Kroll To Speak In Chatfield On cwd

Recommended Posts

Details are somewhat incomplete at this point.  What's known so far is that this is a non-DNR sponsored event.  The event is being moderated by North American Whitetail.  Q&A will take place and questions will not be screened prior to asking.  The topic will be something to the tune of addressing the facts and fiction of CWD. 

 

I'll post more if I can get my hands on it.  For now, February 8th, Chatfield.  Don't know any more beyond that.

Google the guy.  His life has been spent with the deer farming and high fence private hunting for released deer in Texas.  He was hired by Wisconsin and his report got at least one negative review.   He seems to think that CWD is not even a disease.... based on an article he wrote for the Texas Trophy Hunters newsletter. 

 

And he thinks it really isn't a problem since it takes a long time to show up and kill infected animals.  

 

  I was unable to find any scholarly peer reviewed publications by him. 

 

Anyway, google him.   And check out Wisconsin.

This is a link to his report as "deer trustee" for Wisconsin in 2012

Make up your mind.   Do your own reading of the scientific literature.

It's interesting more from the standpoint that he'll likely refute some parts of the DNR's response plan.  It's prudent to question his motives just as much as it's prudent to question the DNR.  Going to be quite the social experiment to see how this gets handled down there.

I am not sure that "refute" is the right word, but he will muddy the waters I bet.  

 

I am thinking that deer farms and their trophy "hunting" buddies are the main vector bringing CWD to new areas.

And thus the ones bringing him to the state to muddy said waters.

Or, since he seems to be one of those "self-promoter" consultant types, he could have offered his services in hopes of drumming up business.   It sure worked for him in Wisconsin.     

 

He does seem to have an orientation that is favorable to the deer breeding and farming business.
