      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 .

Canvasback mount

Recommended Posts

Last year while hunting with my dad and brother we had a couple of drake cans pass by. My dad got the first shot off and sent one sailing and my brother teamed up on the 2nd one. I volunteered to go look for my dad's. We were hunting a lake and there was a big slough behind us. I go back by the slough and there was his can out in the middle laying dead with the wind not moving it. This slough was very muddy and I knew only one way to get it. With my waders I started out in the slough, sinking with every step. I knew if I stopped I would be stuck. I got the duck and made it back. Had to sit by the slough for awhile to catch my breath. Brought it back to dad and his eyes lit up. He has been hunting waterfowl for 40+ years and has never shot a drake canvasback. My dad has never gotten anything mounted. Long story short, my brother and I talked him into mounting this one. He got it done at Flyway Taxidermy by St. Cloud, and Jerry did one awesome job on this duck. It has to be one of the nicest mounts I have seen. The picture doesn't do it justice. I would highly recommend Flyway Taxidermy if you guys ever want a duck mounted.

Very cool Buddy. Tell your old man that I approve. And tell your mom that would look great in the kitchen I think! That way everyone will see it when you walk in the door.

Love the mount! Awesome!

I've got a Drake Buffy that I'm going to do something similar with, plopped down on a rock but I'm not sure if I'm going to have the foot sticking out like that.

Dukhnt,

First of all, congratulations to your father for bagging a beautiful canvasback. I shot one last weekend

Is there any way you could take a couple more pictures of that mount sometime from different angles, or if you already have then that's great. The thing is, that I have never seen a pose as perfect as that one, and I was thinking about getting it re-created with mine.

If you could that'd be great, I'd really appreciate it!!

Thanks

Rusty Jones

I won't be out to my parents for another week. I will try to get some photos of it then. Congrats on your can, they are beautiful ducks.
