      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 .

Good Taxidermist?

Recommended Posts

I need some reccomendations for a great taxidermist. I have a very nice 11 pt that I plan to mount. I've never had anything done before so any help in a good taxidermist who pays attention to detail would be great. I've seen some bad mounts and want to make sure I pick a good one. How do you go about picking a someone? Not afraid to drive for the right person but Grand Rapids area or North metro would be preffered.

Thank you for all tips.

Mid America in savage is the one I would recommend. If you bring the whole deer to them they may cape it for you, at least they did for me. Give them a call. They have a show room that you can see there work.

Try Barry Peterson out of Lino or Dean O'brien Columbus. You can get phone #'s and a card at Gander as well as look at some of the work they have done.

The only one to go to is Mid America Taxidermy in Savage. He does african mounts to fish mounts and are always superb. Personally I have had many things done through him and everything looks so much better than your close to home taxidermists. Also he is the one who does the Outdoor news contest for the Grand Prize free head mount. So you know Mid America is a very widely known and respectable place.
