      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 .

Which Collar?

Recommended Posts

In need of a new e-collar before chasing pheasants in a couple weeks. Looking at either Dogtra 280NCP Platinum or TriTronics Sport Basic 3. I like the fact that reciever/transmitter on the Dogtra are both rechargable and it shows charge level, but I have had good luck with TriTronics in the past. Any opinions/history???

Thanks!

I got the TT G3 Sport Basic back in early May when I got my dog. I HAVE NOT had to charge it yet, made it through all of the summer training a 10 hrs/wk and all of early goose, and it's still flashing green (it should last a while even after it starts flashing yellow). I even left it on overnight on accident about a week ago. I also researched a lot and heard nothing but good about TT.

I've used the Dogtra series for a number of years and have had nothing but good luck.

Fairly fool proof & simple to run. A great collar at a good price,wouldn't hesitate to purchase another.

Dogtra all the way. I have the 2000 T&B going on 3 years now. It gets used almost every day.

I picked up the same collar about a month ago, and am more than happy so far!

I have the tri-tronic SPORT UPLAND G3. Have used it for 1 ½ year and have still not changed the battery on the remote so I don’t think a rechargeable remote will save you much money.

One of the features I really like is turning the beeper on/off with the remote. I find it a bit annoying to listen to the beeper all the time and this makes it possible to turn it on just when you need it to locate the dog. Thee beeper uses a 9v battery, and I actually changed the battery for the first time this weekend.

I have a G2 sport model and a G3 sport combo. Only compaint that I have is the intensity "roller" dial doesn't have a firm enough "click" between numbers. It tends at times to get moved around with walking through tall thick cover that rubs on the transmitter. A buddy has the same one however and his seems better.

Thanks for all the replies everyone I appreciate the input. I had pretty much made up my mind to go with a Dogtra and after reading the above I won't have any reservations making that purchase.

If you are looking for a great deal. Don't know if I can name the store here but it is the large sporting good catalog/retail store on West 94. Check out the bargin cave in back. Factory refurbished tritronics at big discount, + all dog products in there had an additional 20% off on Wed this week. Unfortunately I had just ordered a new one last week.

    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
    • Red admiral i believe.
    • Btw......for you bass purists .... a couple days before the above success, I located mostly largemouth with one smallmouth on the edge of bulrushes adjacent to a deep drop off.  Probably a dozen fish in 20 casts with a Senko. Nothing of any real size. Always fun getting fish on four or five consecutive casts.
