      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 .

Fawn is a fawn and a yearling is 1 1/2 years old. First 3 are yearlings with the third being an early birth and the fourth is 2 1/2.

Nice pics.

I would say they are all year and halfers. When you look at the body, there are no appreciable differences. I would say that the last deer has good potential as he is sporting a decent rack for 1.5 years, but I dont think he is 2.5 due to body size/configuration and rack.

The last one is older than the first two. Look at his front shoulders, they are bigger than his hind quarters.

Theyre all 1 1/2 year olds. The last one was probably born in May when it was supposed to be... the others were late born fawns to late bred mothers and are just a few monthes behing in development. In another year they will most likely all be equals.... the last one may have a little more potential. But any 2 1/2 in Minnesota should be looking better than that.

A good crop to look for in upcoming years.

The last one sure looks like a 2 1/2 year-old to me. He's enough bigger & his rack's started to widen out like they usually do as a two year-old. He could have been a later fawn from two years ago possibly.

I agree the others are different ages of yearlings, their body size could even depend on if they were a single fawn vs. a twin or triplet.
