      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 .

The one thing you always forget....

Recommended Posts

I am putting together my packing list for my first Pheasant Hunting trip this weekend with my fatehr in law. I put together what I think is a pretty respectable list. I've done some fishing trips and a lot of camping so I feel like I'm pretty well prepared for a weekend outdoors. I know that no matter how prepared I am for any trip I always drive 25 miles and hit myself in forehead because I forgot something, usually nothing important, but nonetheless somehting that would have been handy to have.

I thought it would be fun to see what everyone's "one thing" is.

My biggest thing is forgetting the camera, done it a few times, or even worse...batteries for the camera!! Nothing worse than having to tell everyone about trip instead of being able to show them because you forget the camera.

Everything I need for a pheasant trip stays right in my vest all season long, that's what I love about pheasant hunting....the simplicity of gear needed vs other hunts where you need to fill the back of your truck with every new fun toy you bought all year long in anticipation of fall. smile When I get home from a hunt I re-stock my vest with shells so whenever one of those spur of the moment hunts pops up I'm ready to go!

Can't wait to see those tailfeathers rocketing skyward tomorrow! Good luck to all!!

I always end up with only one glove. I can never find out where all the others go, but I always lose one from the time I pack to the time I get to where I am going. An extra set of car keys are always helpful and even more helpful is not locking both sets in the car.

That's about right on the money, shoot 2 kill. Sunglasses, shock collar, Shock collar remote, leash (for the dog when your hunting group stands around and talks on the road)water for you and the dog, these are just a few more things I try to bring.

I've never forgotten them before but this weekend I forgot my matches. I was very disappointed when trying to make our scrambled eggs on the road by the WMA as we waited for 9:00 and there weren't any matches to start the coleman. Luckily I found my magnesium/flint firestarter to get the stove going and get our tummies filled.

    • I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill.    I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled.  Less than 20 on the big A.
    • Bacon is cured already silly!
    • like any addiction............there are cures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Snow has finally stuck up north. With temperatures in the teens and low 20s it looks like it is here to stay. Several properties in the north are reporting between 6 and 10 inches, while the southern half of the state has seen primarily sporadic dustings up to a couple inches. While many ski trails still need additional snow and time to prepare, the Brule River, Northern Highland-American Legion and Point Beach state forests are grooming trails and making ready for the influx of skiers.At this point only Iron County in far northern Wisconsin is reporting that snowmobile trails are open, on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR).Ice conditions have not substantially improved. While there may be 10 inches of snow in Mercer, much of the ice on Iron County lakes varies between only1 and 4 inches. Those early ice anglers that are venturing out have reported solid catches for panfish and northern pike biting on Lake Poygan and those fishing Lake Chetac in Sawyer County are landing walleye, northern pike and panfish. There are just a few weeks left to turkey hunt and now is a good time to see turkeys feeding in fields and wooded areas. Pheasant hunters should note that the state game farm will be releasing an additional 1,500 birds on five wildlife areas prior to the holidays for some late season hunting. .
