      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 .

Canary Grass

Recommended Posts

Had the dog out tonight for one last preseason primer. We got into some Reed Canary Grass (also heard it referred to as cut grass or rice cut grass). As I'm sure most of you will agree, the stuff is not only extremely tiring on the hunter but also the dog, especially when it begins to lay over. Whats your experience with pheasants in the stuff? I've never found many in it as I think even they have a hard time mocing through it. Is it acceptable to pass over these patches (especially early on) or does it hold birds?

If we are talking about the same stuff I think it is not at all good at the beginning of the year. However, it can be extremely good after a fresh snowfall. When it is knocked over it forms multiple layers that birds can burrow under for protection, and they hold really tight.

I agree! I hate that stuff! It seems to be around the perimter of cattail sloughs and in low ground, right? Ive had the same experience, good after a fresh snow or sometimes its good during the rain. Its tough for the dogs to follow birds in it too. I just hate walking through it. Good or bad, NO THANKS is my opinion. Hunting is supposed to be fun smile

Good ground cover as well as provides a great nesting habitat for them. the downside is that when it snows thats where they go to hid from the wind, rain and snow. this is where they get caught and coyotes pick them like fish in a barrel, they will use the stuff but for hunting not as great as it might seem.
