      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 .

Took a trip yesterday...

Recommended Posts

and logged 753 miles, and was gone from home for about 14 hours. I brought two of my daughters to Bible Camp in South Dakota. The camp is located on the Standing Rock Reservation, in the mini badlands.

This was my first attempt at editing out power lines, as well. A sample of the "mini badlands".

This is the area my girls will be riding horses every day.

I have wanted a picture of this house every time we have driven by it. Since I was alone on the way home, I could!

I was able to watch this rainbow for quite a few miles. This was taken near Waubay.

All great shots! I've spent a lot of time on the prairies of North Dakota, and those shots sure remind me of the big sky country. Thanks for sharing the cool work.

Hey Paul, which unit of the Teddy, north or south? They both have the same critters, but north has the better scenery.

Thank for sharing shots of your trip. I really like the old house pic cause you can sense that there is some stories that the house could and should share. I find it interesting that the wood stands and it looks like the fireplace is missing or at least the bricks.

It's clear to see why you had a keen interest in wanting to stop and photograph the old homestead, what a keeper! Thanks for sharing!

    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
    • There’s a nice stretch of warm weather. I just wonder if it’s enough to melt our local lakes by opener    Then the fish have to spawn
    • Got gobbles off the roost and they are now on the ground.
