      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 .

Recommended Posts

Me and my dad went out to zimmerman and the sand dune state forest and went on my first turkey hunt. The first day i missed one with extra full choke 7 yrds out and than didn't here any thing else the reat of the day. The second day i had some comeing to me but never saw any but we did walk up on 5 hens which was pretty cool. Than on my third day we sat at a tree and waited for about 45mins than headed out to another spot and walked from 7:30 till 9:40 than Gobble Gobble Gobble and at 9:45 i took my first turkey 12 yards out it was a 2 year old bird and i was happy with my first bird at 13 years old.

Hey, you had two opportunities! Thats great! I spose you figured out you need to be dead on at 7 yards with an xtra full. Tough shot. Nice rebound.

Nice job. If you can get that many opportunities you are doing better than most of us. The "hunting" is the skill that will get you through. The misses are going to happen, I know I have had more than my share but it usually ends up being an unfilled tag. Good job!

Man, 7 yards! Pretty cool just to see one that close at least. I hear a surprising amount of stories about missed birds 15 yards and in.

Awesome accomplishment Goman. You're off to a great start.

Just keep learning something from every encounter you have with a turkey whether you bag one or not.

Oh, and don't forget to thank your dad for the opportunity.

Did you get some good photos of your first bird??
