      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 .

how to get dog to understand birds on the wing

Recommended Posts

I have been working with my pup on gunfire retrieving birds all the essential but how do I get my dog to transition into understanding and focusing on ducks circiling the decoys so I can be sure she knew what we were cracking at or does that just come with time?

JHays1-It'll probably be a natural progression if your pup is a fetcher. You can keep some wings off an old bird and zip tie it to your dummy for fetching. You may want to layout some decoys in a field and practice throwing the dummy while firing blanks so the dog gets use to all the obstacles and distractions.

Then buy or trap some live pigeons for field training(dead ones will work)or better yet find a farmer who will let you shoot pigeons on thier farm-send someone into the silo or barn w/ a handful of rocks and have the gunners and dogs watching the exits. Shooting barnducks can be a fun time and good practice for everyone.
