      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 .

Kelly Farm Hunt Test

Recommended Posts

Any members running dogs at this weekends event? Hope to be up there Sunday for a bit. Will be viewing the/a senior event. Should be there about 10ish according to her draw. Watch for the couple standing on the tailgate with binoculars. First chance we've had to see our little girl run.

Good luck Bryce. It's fun to watch these events. I just started doing the hunt test thing myself and just finished a junior hunter. It is addicting.

Thanks guys. Luck needs to go to the hound and her handler. I'm just a spectator and most likely will not see the entire event due to graduation parties that need to be attended. A big thank you to PBC for the compliment. Running Sunday is 3rd generation of our breeding. Avatar is her mother.

Not sure what is all running on Sat. but Sun. is junior and senior. Jezebel is in senior A. Official AKC events require preregistration.

I believe it's Greg Ye. Unless Bryce changed trainers in the last couple of months...

Good Luck!

Ken, I thought Greg sold his property and moved out west, Montana or Colorado?

Never got it sold... he's still in western WI. He does have his winter grounds he owns in Texas and he was going to move to his summer grounds by Deer Park, WI. But last time I chatted with him that had not taken place due to the slowness of selling the original kennel property.

Good Luck!

Wasn't able to stay for awards so wanted to make sure it was listed on entry express before celebrating a pass. Handler was very pleased with only 2 1/2 weeks back in camp. Didn't take good lines on either memory bird but came up with both with short, effective hunts and no handling. Pretty sure quite a few dogs got dropped after handling on both memory birds. Only big fault was a slipped whistle on first blind. Both blinds had big trouble long of the bird and everyone was trying to stop the dogs right at the bird for a final push. Saw at least two other dogs already have the bird winded at the final whistle blow and ignore the command. She 3 whistled the second blind and I'm pretty sure one of the whistles was to show control of the dog to the judges after the slip. 2 more to title and then probably play around in a couple qualifiers.

What would the title be, SH or MH? Also, with the Master National in Virginia, MN this year is it your goal to get her/him qualified for that and run it?

Running for SH. She's really over trained for the events but want that title before we ratchet up the games. Not going to say MH isn't a worthy title, but don't see any value in it for me. Would much rather try for a QAA dog for puppy value. Sounds like the judges are really cranking down on the MH dogs in the region since so many are trying to qualify for a "local" national event.

Big weekend for dog events. Going to run the old girl in a fun event in Glencoe Saturday morning. She doesn't stand much of a chance against the young dogs but the eyes still light up at the line even at 11+ years. Good donation of $ to an upstart habitat org. Jezebel runs for SH title Sunday at Kelly Farm. Missed a couple events due to handler personal commitments and then a jam packed 2 weekend period due to heat cycle.

It's an AKC test they ran master and junior on Saturday and Junior and senior on Sunday. I think it's northern flights hosting it.

I am supposed to be running in Senior today but had to scratch my dog Friday night she came into heat. I'm really bummed we had gone 4/4 up to this point in senior and I was hopefully going to finish it off this weekend.

Saw a couple dogs were scratched in senior B. Senior A was a battlezone. Left after our dog was dropped but wouldn't be surprised to see less than 25% pass rate. They dropped 9 of 31 on the first series which was just a land double mark. Next series was water(mostly mud) double mark followed by water blind followed by land blind and then honor. Lot of tired dogs breaking honor and hyped dogs breaking from sitting in holding blind so long. Didn't see our dog on the first series but handler said she stomped them. She went out on the marks in the next series. Tall grass waist high plus 2-3 feet behind the mark. Many lost dogs(including ours) if it got into that trouble. Dogs were passing but it was tough.

    • I tried a few new ones the last couple weeks. The first was Evan Williams 1783. Very good over ice or mixed with a splash of water. Plenty smooth and good enough that I got a second bottle to replace the one that somehow became empty. Price was about $16.    12 foot beard. This was ok and smooth enough to drink over ice. The best part about this one was that someone else bought it. Price was about $30 a bottle. It was good enough to drink on someone else's dime but I don't think I'd buy it myself.    I also tried a bottle of Redemption. This was very good over ice and about the closest thing I've found to the Trader Joe's bourbon that I like. Price was about $18 a bottle. Definitely one that I would buy again.    I dont know why but I like the bottle with a cork and not a screw off cap. The Redemption and Beard both had corks. 
    • came to $200, which if I would have known prior to digging in, I would have dropped the trailer off that night to save myself the time with a big smile; he said their shop puts a spiral groove into the pivot assembly so the grease is evenly distributed; just said to keep greasing it. they did check the other side and it was taking on grease and to just stay on top of it. Just mentioned its a poor design on those axles, not just a IC problem but the other brands have the same issues; just need to stay on top of the maintenance!!
    • I realize its still April but this bad stretch of baseball has been awful. Hopefully getting back into a routine schedule and a few games back home they can get back on track.   Thankfully Cleveland isn't completely running away with the division yet. Not sure at this point if Wildcard will even be an option for another team in this division this year.
    • Well cant say I am not surprised with the outcome from that series. I think it was good for players like KAT to get a taste of the playoffs and see first hand what it takes to compete in the playoffs etc. Hopefully it was a good learning experience.   I am more disappointed with Wiggins than anything. He was a ghost for most of the season and especially in this playoff series. That max deal looks worse and worse. 
    • Archery hunting turkeys is difficult at best, but when it all comes together It's as exciting as it gets. 
    • Figured you'd like that news bb, not sure I want to get rid of Granlund, he seems to be one of the few on the team to create offence and has always been decent in the playoffs, at least better than most of the others not named Parise. Zucker has some ugly playoff numbers too but we need his speed and 30 goals scorers just don't grow on trees, just hope he can find a way to step up when we need him. 

      We do appear set on D, our group did great on offense but still held their own in the D zone. Really like Seeler, I've probably said that too much but the way he played down the stretch and in the playoffs he could be an elite bottom pair guy, just need someone else to push Prosser to the press box.

      Foligno is a pretty decent 4th liner, just not at that stupid money we gave him, the 4th line was one of the bright spots in the playoffs. Hopefully Ek can break out a little bit next year, kid has all the tools to be the next Koivu but hopefully with more goal scoring. I'd give Nino another chance too, he was clearly off this year due to injuries and is just about always good for 25 goals when healthy. Agreed on Coyle, love his size and skill but he is just not the sum of his parts but watch us trade him and have him go on a tear.    Sounds like Leopold has his eyes on Fenton out of Nashville but lets hope they look everywhere. Should be an interesting off season.  One more note, just don't know about Dubs, we have had plenty of time to see what he is and right now he is half amazing and keeping us in games at times and sometimes letting in softies at bad times. Not going to hold game 5 against him, I don't even know what that was. Just not sure we will be able to find/trade someone better short term. It's like many of the others guys in a way, not the main reason we lost but not stepping up when needed the most. 
    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
