      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 .

I was back in Wisconsin on Wednesday morning after working all night. I ended up getting there too late and I think I bumped the birds off the roost on a new spot I was trying. After six hours I decided to head back to my tried and true spot.

I drove by to see if any birds were on the field and saw about 15-20 birds all near the road and feeding in the field. I drove about a 1/4 mile back to where I park and did about a 1/2 mile loop around the birds to get into position. Somehow the the birds were gone when I get there.

I set up and waited about ten minutes before calling. I called about every twenty minutes for an hour before I saw two Toms sneaking through the woodline coming towards my blind. The first Tom to step out was already in range at 40 yards. I adjusted the video camera and took the shot.

This is one of my biggest birds yet. It has an 11 1/2" beard and 1 3/8" spurs and weighed 23 pounds on my digital scale.


Maybe next year I should enter the FM contest.
