      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 .

If that is the only number on the band, then you will have to do more research. It obviously isn't an avise bird band. What else does the band say???

I shot a goose the 2nd saturday of early goose. It was banded in 2007 just south of talmage, Iowa. It was too young to fly when banded and it was a male. It was shot near kandiyohi.

My pops shot a sprig near Roseau, MN that had been banded in Washinton state. Hmm....

I just got an e-mail from the band center in MD, it has a ton of info in it, none about my bird, and it says I may not get my cert. for a long time, or may need to get in touch with them again regarding info. Here's a excerpt from the e-mail..

"Thank you for your recent report of band 1028-35357.

Unfortunately, we cannot process your report immediately. This is due to one or both of these reasons:

1. There is a discrepancy or potential error in your report that will place it in a hold file until time allows us to work on resolving it.

2. The bander has not yet submitted the data for this band so we are unable to process your report at this time."

What the sam heII??

Had four honkers come in this morning and shot two of them. BOTH were banded. The band numbers were the same except for the last two digits which were 24 on one band and 27 on the other. Made me wonder if those other two geese were 25 and 26. Yes I was pumped for sure. Will post info on where they were banded when I get it.

I got the same e-mail on the Wigeon?

I tried to report the band over the web, and it let me get that far, but when I went to submit the info for the certificate, I kept getting an error screen.

So I called the number on the band and tried it that way. I think my problem was the gal I talked too, put the species down as "American Legend", instead of American Wigeon, according the e-mail I got back regarding the phone call?

I e-mailed them back and told them of the discrepency, but have yet to here anything back.

And right in the e-mail it says to absolutely not re-submit the information or report the band a 2nd time. I wonder what will happen...

As for the phone people, ugh, I had to correct her like 5 times because I swear she had dung in her ears. Very frustrating!

More of your tax dollars hard at work.....LOL

Yeah I don't know if my original web deal went all the way through, due to the error message at the end or not?

My guess is that when you put the number in, it just accesses the data base, but doesn't process it until you hit the last tab. But I have no idea.

If your not in any rush, try to enter the info on the web. Maybe it will give you the basic info? Unless whoever banded the bird has yet to turn in the info, or the feds don't have it processed yet???

Worst that can happen is it can be delayed....LOL

    • A bit off subject and I love firing up the smoker for a little meat centric voodoo as much as anyone but time and seasoning costs money and sometimes I find that by the time you buy everything we use to bring,inject,rub,produce and trap the smoke and otherwise cover these lesser cuts to make them taste right we could have had a nice steak on a grill.  
    • I'd love to show these pics to my wife but if I did, she'd just throw our house away!  Excellent project!  Well done. 
    • Went to Ely yesterday to winterize ours and replace the vent domes.  I looked closer at the caulking in various areas and wasn't comfortable with what I was seeing, plus it really needed a pressure washing.  I'm pretty sure the water heater is on the fritz too.  Hooked it to the truck and hauled it home for service.  A 40 foot box in yesterday's wind and rain for 4 hours was interesting but I'm glad I can get everything taken care of that I've been wanting to change and just bring it back up in the spring, ready for fun.
    • Looks great, but LRG has a basement window in his.
    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?
