      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 .

Didn't you ask this yesterday? The Mod-angels must have whisked it away. I know of a breeder who has a tri-colored puppy - not sure if it's male or female, though.

SandCreek Springers is where I picked up Maynard, and he's doing great. They do lots of field trials and hunting.

Jimmy - how's your Springer doing? You must have it back from up north?

Maynard is doing great - I think he's going to have a great first year in the field, although he's used to running in short sprints for training, so he tends to go ALL OUT. I'm sure he will figure out to pace himself. Or it will be short hunts!!

My springer is doing really well. I am really excited to get her out in the field. I will be taking her out for the duck opener. So I have been doing alot of water work with her lately, doing multiple retrieves and so on. She has really turned the corner since she got back from training. I don't think I have ever seen a dog that is so excited to see the e-collar come out, she can't wait to put it on. I am glad to hear yours is doing really well.

Tmvikings I know if your looking for a field bread springer. There are a few really good kennels around. I purchased mine from pineshadows up in brainerd. Usually there is a little wait for a springer up there. They have a HSOforum you can look up. I know MinnesotaMongo also got his from a pretty good breeder, I can't remember the name. They would be worth checking into also. I think that if you are looking for a field bread tri colored you are really going to have to do some homework. If I were you I would spend the extra money and get one from one of those kennels. You really know what you are getting. I know Pine Shadows has a one year guarantee on there puppies. If you are not happy with your dog after a year from the purchase you can return it for another, or refund.

Sandcreek is good, Pine shadows. I went to a place called Cedar Knoll. They are more of a hobby type breeder, but their dogs have great pedigrees. My dog is 2yo now and he is a great hunter and a great family dog. After I sent him to Whings and Whistles in St. Boni, he's been a fantastic hunter. He also goes bonkers when he sees the e-collar.

There is another breeder in the St. CLoud area that I met at game fair that I'm looking at for my second dog. I think the name was Goriecki. I'll let you know if I find the info. They are also a hobby type breeder. Great pedigrees, good temperment and raised by good people.

Is that Katie Goriecki? I see she's running a couple dogs in the Heartland trial in a couple weeks. Nice gal - I trained a couple times with her.

I know that Sandcreek has some puppies - and a tri-color. There are a lot of FC coming out of those lines - and a fun group of people to train with, to boot.

Here's mine out of Sandcreek ready to rock last winter...

I got my 3 yr old field bred springer at Northern Sky. They only have a couple of litters each year. Google them and check out their HSOforum.

Sorry to toot my horn, but I just had my 15 month old Springer Maynard out tonight - and man, is he a great dog. Those Sandcreek dogs do have a lot of hunt and drive in them.

Sounds like you have a great number of options though - they all sound great. Good luck.

You know, I just trained last night with a man named Jason who has a reallly nice 9 month old neutered male for sale - and I saw him train the dog - looks really nice. He even found and retrieved a coot - ALIVE (I don't know where he found him out in the grass, but he brought him up). Very nice looking black and white started dog. contact me at monte.meyer AT gmail DOT com, if you are interested - I can point you in the direction.

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
