      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 .

Grouse at last....

Recommended Posts

To say the least I have had a rough grouse season this year. (no pun intended) The areas I had been running the dogs seemed to have really low numbers.(averaged about 2 grouse pointed every 5 hours)

That all changed today when I decided to hunt a different area that I heard had decent numbers. The longer than normal drive to the new hunting grounds payed off, I had 19 contacts in about 4 hours of hunting. It was really nice to see a good bird population. I ended up with 4 grouse, because I ran out of shells. (forgot the dry box with the ammo at home, at least I had the 9 left over in the vest)

The best part of the day was getting a grouse that was pointed and held by my 7 month old female setter Chili. She has had some nice points this fall but we have been unable to connect.

After deer season I will be chasing pheasants, so this may have been the last grouse trip.

Nice job and good for you! I hear you about having a tough year. My slump of 2008 continues. I've seen plenty (I should say lots) of birds, just very, very poor shooting... but thats my own story. Job well done!

I may have to take back some of the stuff I said about hunting female dogs also

Don't worry about it. Differing opinions are part of what makes the world go around.

Lots of Berg Brothers dogs around...more than a few guys from this site have one. My female is sired by a Berg Brothers dog and I used one of their sires when my female had a litter. Very knowledgeable, dedicated dog guys.

Setterguy, I think your going hunting with Uplander and I next Monday? I am really looking forward to running all the setters together. It should be be very interesting, but I do feel bad for the birds. wink

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
