      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Sharptail Hunters Please Read

Recommended Posts

A small project as directed by a Central Michigan Biology Professor seeks to gain some new genetic information for possible use to increase genetic health of Wisconsin sharp-tail populations by using an introduced genetic rescue effect.

Dr. Brad Swanson's genetic analysis will look at sharptail samples from North Dakota, Northwest Minnesota, and East Central Minnesota. The project is being funded by the Wisconsin DNR and both the Wisconsin and Minnesota Sharp-tailed Grouse Societies. Fifty to eighty samples(Wings with primary feathers, after the radius and ulna joint) from each region are needed.

Persons interested should contact Eric Nelson, Assistant Area Wildlife Supervisor at Thief River Falls for more information ( or 218-681-0946). You will need data sheets to adjoin each sample provided by Minnesota DNR as well as a handout on sample care procedures to maintain genetic integrity of the samples.

If you're a sharp-tail hunter, please sign up to help in this study!

Did anyone get out and participate in this study?

If you're a sharptail hunter, please save those wings and get them sent in. People still have time, as they're taking wings until the season's close later this month.

Also, if you haven't already, please sign up for the Minnesota Sharptail Grouse Society. If you're interested in signing up, let me know and I'll get you some info...

Here's a mature male who's wing is en route to the biologist as I type this!
