      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 .

Go, Ely Timberwolves! New pix!

Recommended Posts

Sumthin' is happening to the wolves over the last couple of weeks! I don't have a story like Steve did, but I did bump into these guys today. Saw the black fella first, but the second one dashed onto the road. They were in sight for a total of about 15 or 20 seconds, so just got two short bursts in. About 90 yards away, I was happy to get 'em!

Dude! Guess I should have gone with you over your extended lunch hour instead of heading from the Tomahawk over to Sax-Zim! What a great encounter.

Uh, you could always e-mail me and tell me where you found them. gringringrin

Congrats Ken, I'm happy to see that you had your new camera in your lap and ready to go. I like the pose in the last one for sure. I keep having to go the to the zoo to find wolves.

I did. I never win.

If you count up the many thousands of hours I've spent in the woods looking for wolf photographs and weigh them against the photographs I've got, the odds of getting wild wolf photographs are still far better than the 80,000,000 to 1 odds of winning the Powerball.

Still, I keep trying on both fronts. You can't win if you sit in front of your computer and don't play. gringrin

I agree, Steve. I buy one Powerball a week and haven't won a buck in over a year. With wolves I've won the jackpot twice in the last two weeks!

True, but sitting in front of my PC isn't costing me anything. wink

Mike, I wasn't thinking of you in particular. But, nor is sitting in front of a computer winning us anything. smilesmile

Ken, you buy Powerball when you got back in town? This run of wolves has simply been amazing. gringrin

TOO MUCH INFORMATION!!!!!!! shockedshockedshocked

For the record, I think I've had three of four different avatars over the last sixth months. One hopes that you change your undies a little more often than that. gringrin

Sorry Ken, your thread, not ours.

Go wolves! gringrin

I have to admit when I saw the title to this thread I thought you'd be posting sports images from the local high school team.

What a pleasant surprise that these wolves weren't wearing red uniforms! gringrin

It's just that your last avatar, the hawk, had only been up a day or two.

Back to you, Ken. Actually, I assumed the same as Steve, and almost didn't check out the thread. It would have surely been my loss, if I hadn't. After these close encounters, do you dream about wolves at night? sleep I can guarantee you, I would.

You've been using up all the good titles, I had to come up with something different!

I have to admit when it came up on the sidebar I thought that Finnbay must have took the 50D to the basketball game to get some shots with bad lighting just to test the high ISO grin

I had the same thoughts as jimalm. I was looking forward to some indoor sports shots with the 50D. The real wolves is a nice surprise! What a great experience it must be to get so close to some beautiful animals.

Thanks all. It's always a rush to see a wolf, or moose, or deer, or eagle, or pine martin, or just about anything! Some are just more rare than others.

Steve's been out and about so much lately (successfully) he's going to have to come up with some new material for titles!

Probably I'm heading out to the North Shore today, too. Might have to do some Lake Superior scenics under this curtain of rain. Tough photography conditions, but rewarding for all that.

We'll see.

Ken, any wolf we see today's gonna be a bedraggled mess of wet fur. gringrin

    • He's that Guy?  The one guy in the world that doesn't like BACON?     May be he's Moslam and can't eat it? 
    • Sounds like someone's talking to much! Lol
    • I'd try those!!  don't save any for Glenn!!!
    • One of these years...
    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks? 
    • Sorry, but his 60 some RBI for someone who's hitting over .300 is exceptionally low.  Especially for the number of games he's played.
    • @MJ1657 That was good for a chuckle over breakfast.  I heard you might've had a less than flawless day yourself. 
    • Sounds good to me! Maybe blanch quick then into ice water like tomato's to get that skin off first....
    • I've never tried it but maybe a guy could peel the beets, cold smoke for a couple hours in a disposable aluminum pan. Then crank up the heat and cover with foil to cook tender. Maybe they would bleed out  without skins? Any juices could go right into the mix. I have plenty of beets to experiment with, I'm going to have to try it now. Smomed pickled beets mmmm!
    • Weather was perfect up here! cloudy, drizzly, 55 degrees. we shot quite a few ducks, geese. The first hour was solid. Lots of birds around, but then as usual it died down. I was surprised at the amount of hunters out there on this WPA considering it was a 1/2 mile hike to get to it.  Left at 9:00 when my son got cold. Will be looking at getting a game cart to haul all the gear back and forth. Maybe try it again next weekend before I get serious on bow hunting......
