      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 .

Do you think it will make it?

Yesterday I was cutting alfalfa and jumped a young fawn. I mean this thing was barely the height of a springer spaniel. It seemed very healthy but doesn't this seem to be a little late in the year for a fawn to still be this small? How long do they hang on to their spots?

I'm wondering if we get a harsh winter whether this fawn will survive.

That sure seems like a younin' Bob. Nothing in nature surprises me, ya never know, but I would lean to it not making it, since we are 5 days from august, and probably 3 months from your first snow storm and week of low temps....

I didn't see mom around anywhere but as healthy as the fawn looked I would guess she wasn't too far away.

Several years ago I jumped one with spots during the first weekend of the firearms season. It wasn't much bigger than a small dog. This one also seemed very healthy but doubted that it would make it through the winter.

BobT -

If the winter is fairly mild, and the food is adequate, it may make it.

In 2005, I had a doe that was incredibly fat on my trail cam in mid august. I never even imagined that she was still pregnant.

About labor day, there she was with two brand new fawns. I really doubt those made it through the winter.

I've seen spots in october and I saw new ducklings last week. This year has been pretty late with the cold, late snow and the cool wet spring. If it jumped up and bounded away I would say its pretty healthy.

I jumped one about that size mowing in my tree planting about that same time. I could see the grass moving in front of me & assumed it was a pheasant until the ears popped out as I got to a place where the grass was a little shorter. I think in our area, yours & mine, there's enough food & cover they'd make the winter okay most of the time, at least if Mom makes it, but probably even if she doesn't. I've seen some awfully tiny yearlings in the spring.
