      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 .

How do I keep my lab from following me when the grass gets thick?

Recommended Posts

When he is hot on a bird, he will go through a brick wall. But when there is no scent around, he seems to want to follow the trail that I make in the thick stuff. He works just fine while the grass is manageable. But I want him to work even through the thick stuff.....any advice?

I can think of a few reasons why.

Hes tired. Take a water break.

Your moving too fast. If your in front your in the wrong place. Give him time to work, often times in the thick cattails I'm standing still while the dog is working.

I then move toward the direction the dog is working and stay out of his way.

Hes just taking the easy way. That could be from too fast a pace in the past and hunting trails.

So how do your get it into his head you want him to hunt?

Since he was a pup you use a command when you let him out the door or kennel. That command is used when he gets his time to do what a dog does when not under your close control but not to be confused with out of your control. Which IMO a dog should be at some level of your control at all times unless kenneled or crated.

Same command you use when you enter a field and start the days hunt when hes hot to go. All that what seems meaningless becomes an association from repetition.
