      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 .

training a five year old

Recommended Posts

I have just gotten a five year old golden retriever. and i was curious about training her for hunting.

is there any draw backs or concerns?

the dog used to be a show dog. so i know she will look awesome just standing in the field. grin but i really would like to teach her to hunt.

so any help would be appreciated.

thanks

You may want to find a local group that trains retrievers/flushing dogs and see if you can buy a clip wing pigeon - and flip it out in front of her to see if she is interested.

I would assume that if she runs over there and tries to pick it up and bring it back to you - she could have some instinct for hunting.

It would be a cheap way to find out if she's "birdy" or not.

Old dogs take a little more patience to train. I'd follow the above advice and if she's got interest in feathers naturally then put in the time to slowly introduce her to guns, birds, the field etc. If she's got a strong retrieving drive there is a good chance she'll want to hunt. I've seen 10 year old dogs learn new tricks so anything is possible. If she doesnt have the instinct I'd just accept it as a companion animal.
