      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 .

Comfy in the snow.

This rooster must have needed some cooling off. When I first came across him in the ditch, I pulled over and took a few out the window. Unfortunately, there was a truck coming behind me and no shoulder to pull off on. I then drove ahead a couple miles and came back. I got out and walked towards him, hoping to get a good flight shot. I expected him to explode into the air. Instead, he fooled me and started running first. My nice flight shot ended up not quite so nice. frown All he gave me to shoot, was his rear end. It sure would have been nice to have thinner clouds.

When I think back, that sure would have been an easy shot with the shotgun.

Although not your classic BIF rooster...I like the change of pace. It's kind of a "the last image you have in your mind before the shotgun goes off" image. Although in my case the next image after that is.......the rooster still flying off.

That's the look I have been getting lately. They get up and someone else shoots them or I shoot and they keep on going. Nice work X. How much snow you got, I'm heading out to Madison tomorrow to do some hunting with a bunch of friends.

I like the shots Mike, good work on them. That backwards view is one I'm familiar with as he flies away without a BB in him. frown

Yak, there is only about an inch of snow around here, but it's crusty and crunchy. Good luck on sneaking up on them roosters. wink I saw a bunch just driving the gravel roads from 3:00 on. They're out picking their grit. Of course, they're always on private land. mad However, road hunting may be the best way to find them.

Thanks, all. Next time, I hope to get the pheasant standing so as to get his legs in the picture too. Also, with brighter conditions, I believe I can get the eye a bit sharper. And, my shotgun will be with me next time too. grin
