      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 .

Hunting shows and Safety?

Recommended Posts

I love watching hunting shows i have for years but has anyone else noticed how poor their safety is on these shows. I was watching a show last night and lost count how many times this guy had his loaded gun pointed at someone. Its nuts to think they are professionals at what they do but they ignor some of the basic safety issues. I guess that was a little rant to see if anyone else noticed this.

the guys who are turkey hunting and go running H-Bent for election after a turkey that's already anchored are some others that have no regard for safety.

Not really a safety issue, but I can't figure out the guys who drop a deer in plain site and come back 12 hours later to pick it up. Should be good and tender after the guts bake inside. That's if the coyotes don't get them first.

As for leaving the deer lay - all they care about is the antlers. I swear I saw a guy shoot a turkey with a cow standing behind it. That cow sure jumped. I was dissapointed because as show was put on by a turkey federation. If you watch the South Dakota pheasant shows sometimes the bird gets up and the guide hits the deck must be from past experiences.

Not so much on the safety, but they really need a hunting show for the "common" guy. Almost all the time they are in a prime location, with 6 months of digital scouting camera photos, a 1 sweet food plot, or they are hunting at through an outfitter.

Granted, they are filming for tv, but do still.

Ohhh well I will still watch...

I like the shows were they have some young kid, disabled hunter, or a regular guy on the hunt of a lifetime. I was watching a show were a guy shot a small buck somewhere in canada. At first I was wondering why he shot such a small deer but after seeing his excitement and he started crying I understood why.
