      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 .

Whats wrong with this

Recommended Posts

I was hunting in central MN on Sat morning with my girl friend. We were in a Canoe all set up. when another boat came into the marsh looking for a place to sit. They saw a few too many guys and decided to move up the river. when they sped up they swamped there boat. They yelled for help and I yelled to ther other hunters "2 boats both with motors" that these guys were swimming and in need of help. neither responded and I knew they could here us and those guys. I took off in the canoe to help them out. managed to get the 3 guys and equipment to shore safely. the fire department took over from there. Now what the heck is wrong with those guys they made no attempt to help. My answer is it was 10 min to shooting time and didn't want to miss out. I guess these guys have never been in that type of situation before. I went in last year with my dad in deep rice and was in the water over 45min with no one to help we were lucky that night. water was in 50's but air was in 60's. I hope those guys on saturday that didn't help maybe are reading this and think about that. a duck is a duck and as life is a life. HoW do all you Feel about this.

Wow, you are to be commended for your actions. Great job and nice to see you have compassion for your fellow man/hunters. Being in a canoe, you put your own well being at risk because canoes can be very tippy, especially in those kind of circumstances. Nice to know the hunters made it out okay and I'm sure they were grateful for your assistance. As far as the guys with the boats and motors not helping, they should be ashamed that they don't have more compassion for their fellow hunters and the safety of others. Sometimes, people react negatively when faced with adversity. Maybe they were fearful for their own well being and couldn't overcome their own fear to assist. Hopefully it wasn't a matter of them wanting to shoot ducks and simply not caring, as I cannot imagine anyone being that selfish. Who knows. Nonetheless, it's a good thing you were present to assist, and again, congrats for doing the right thing. You are always welcome on any slough or lake I ever hunt on.

Watched 3 guys go through the ice one year in a truck and everybody on the ice watched as me and a buddy helped get them out. Some people just either dont get it or are just not willing to help. I dont know? I dont get it either.

It just doesn't make any sense. I couldn't imagine a scenario where everyone on the lake wouldn't come over and help. I hope someone that reads this web site knows these other guys and let's them know how we all feel about there non - actions. Very disappointed except for the actions of Cedarcreek. Well done and being that what comes around goes around, you've probably got some good Karma headed your way. On one hand Play the lottery on the other hand go hunting. I might just cash in...............on some good hunting. Good Luck.

Nice to see you helping them out, they'll appreciate much with your help and these other guys not doing anything and hunt are just selfish.

BUT if that was me, you can't blame me, I would have not heard these guys screaming, unless they are close enough for me to hear and I'd try to figure whats going on but the word "HELP" wouldn't do much for me too, just some noise I'm hearing. If I had seen them flip over or anything, that'll be a different story for me. Not saying these guys who didnt help are deaf, theres a slim chance they were but its possible.

I believe in the hunting rules there is a law that a person is required to render aid to a wounded or person in some form of other distress. And beside that we can all think back over our outdoor activities to a time we wished to heck someone would help us out.

If they heard these guys or heard you - they should be ashamed. I would not have blamed you for going up to them when it was over and asking why they did not help. Nice job!

I could hear the guys talking before they went down. All of us in the slough were 3oo yards or less and it was a still morning. You could hear a pin drop at 1000 yards.

Good for you for helping them out, and I am glad you all were able to get to safety. That is horrible the others did not help.

We helped pull a guy from water in spring, with his boat circling WOT, about 6 years ago or so. We were surprised as we yelled to another boat on our way, and they did not even come in the direction to help - afterward they just said "yeah, we saw something happening, but didn't know what..." jeeeez...

It doesn't take long in this cold weather... Good job on saving them, as that is truly what you did. Your girlfriend should be proud of you, and vice versa.

You did a brave and good thing there. I think you'll find that you're experience with others watching you help someone else is typical. I think many people just don't want to get involved or are afraid to. I think that's equal to cowardice.

I often use a canoe to hunt as well and have wondered how I would handle getting someone out of the water with one. Trying to get a full grown man out of the water and into the canoe without capsizing isn't easy and I've thought the best thing to do would be to have the guy hold onto the gunwales while I paddle in to shore. How did you handle that?

i think they could almost be charged with not helping because. In the rule book its says you have be charged if you don't help a fellow hunter who is in destress. its called "duty to render aid" I think but i am not sure.

    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor. 
    • Thanks for the humor.
    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.
