      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 .

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I see big deer contests around the state and am in a contest myself. The ussual winners for the contest I'm in are 160 for a doe and 250 for a buck i would say........... Biggest buck I've ever saw weighed 273 and I actually shot a doe that I couldn't belive this year - 181 lbs!

Just wonderring what others have seen for deer weights? And hoping I can hold onto the biggest doe spot!

Thanks, ya that's kinda what I was thinking. I'll try and post some pics within the next week or so....... We took some pics with her hanging next to a 215 lb buck a guy shot in our group and the length is about the same, just a little less stocky.

We shot a doe 2 years back down in houston, MN and the deer weight just over 200 dressed. It was a horse. It actually looked like a buck without antlers. The thing had almost no teeth and was grey all over. We had actually seen the deer a few times, but the guy couldn't pass her up any longer. We were having trouble getting her out with 3 guys and a 4 wheeler. I can honestly tell you that I will never see a doe that big the rest of my life.

Here's the 181 pound doe I shot on opener. She wasn't a dry doe though like the one the guy from Houston shot though.
