      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 .

Deer Cough?

Recommended Posts

I finally got out bowhunting again on Friday night. About 6:15, I heard what I thought was the farmer coughing.(I hunt right next to his back driveway). I looked back expecting him to come walking down the road. What I saw, however, was a big doe about 40 yards away. Then I heard the cough again, close and I looked at the doe and she didn't even flinch. Soon after, another doe that was only about 20 yards away, behind a deadfall walks out and right thru my shooting lane. I drew on her and decided I wanted to wait. 5 minutes later, the first doe I saw walks into my shooting lane and I drew on her as well only to let up once I was confident I "could've taken her". My question is has anyone else ever heard this? I have been bowhunting for 20 years and have never heard this before. I have heard the snort-wheeze, grunting, etc, but never a cough and that is the best way to describe it.

I have heard it a few ( very few) times, But it was just after the sneeze or nasel blow. Like as in Something is here but what, clear nose, then cough to clear throat to taste the wind/air. ground. If you would have seen this from start you may have noticed it also licking the air prior to the cough.

i had a doe last year that had the same problem. she seemed very healthy, and had fawns with her. i just wrote it off thinking she may of had a twig or something stuck in her throat.

I have heard something similar, a doe did some kind of grunt/cough. It really surprised the heck out of me. There was another doe and 3 fawn with her and they didn't even flinch when she made the noise.
