      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 .

cougar question

Recommended Posts

I believe the rules state all mammals with no closed season or other protection are unprotected and can be taken.If it (cougar)is protected you'd have to check.

I dont think Cougars are Federally protected as you can hunt them in some Western States. I could be wrong but... you can not hunt them in Minnesota as they are Protected species.

Just had a cougar walk by my trail cam from this weekend. It was the middle of the day... Looked to be a younger cougar. This got me thinking...if its a younger cougar odds are it didn't wander far distances on its own. Hopefully there is not some breeding going on in my woods...

Makes you think twice about walking in the woods when it is completely dark...

The land is located by hillman, mn

mmmm. Pretty hard to tell, as its only in frame for a split second. If you replay the first .5-1.5 sec it kinda looks like a cat. I thought maybe I saw a tail.

Not sure you can say "I got a video of a cougar" with something like that. Better luck next time.

Bobcat- first it looked to have a long tail, but the colors its a bobcat, maybe a greyfox, but almost positive its a bobcat.

You need to set your camera at a angle to the trail, will give you better pictures.

Maybe a bobcat, maybe a doe. Definately not a cougar with the short tail. The last frame that appears to have a long tail is the right rear leg.
