      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 .

My lab's coat

Recommended Posts

My lab is kept inside and has a decent coat but probably not as good as a outdoor dog. How safe is it to hunt with him late season. He does wear a 5mm vest. How do you guys treat this siutation?

Is this going to be in water or the field? If your hunting upland and the dog is active, I dont think it will be a big deal at all. But if your gonna be busting ice and then making him sit there.... maybe not so good. I dont think an inside dog develops the oils as well as the thick coat that an outside dog does.

Run him hard, its a lab, its what they want you to do!

sorry i was talking about waterfowl. he gets run hard when off the water but when on the water birds arent always steady action and sometimes theres the normal 10 minutes to an hour till the next flock of birds come through.

do you guys normally bring towels to dry some of the water off the dog?

keep him out of the water as much as possible and he will be fine with the vest. Keep an eye on his behavior, he will let you know if something is wrong.
