      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 .

Lip squeaked one in at noon.....

Recommended Posts

I was bowhunting this past Sat hoping for some midday rut activity. Right at high noon a beautiful yote comes over the ridgetop saddle I was set up on. He was at the edge of bow range but being that I was sitting with the bow on the hanger at the time it didn't really matter.

I managed to get up, grab the bow, and do some lip squeaking right before he dropped off the ridge. He paused, then continued, then stopped again. I continued squeaking - I could just see his tail flickering through the trees. Finally I shook some leaves on the tree I was in and he turned and came in on a trot. I pulled back when he passed behind some trees. He came around and stopped - looking for that warm, furry critter he'd heard. He was facing directly at me, about 30 yards. There were a few limbs but it looked good. I put the pin on his throat and let er rip.

I lost track of the arrow, but did hear it hit some branches - there was a pile of them right behind him, thought maybe it passed through first but the way he took off I had my doubts. Finally got down, found the arrow with one white hair on the broadhead cry

Followed his tracks for a while and only found a few drop of pee - guess at least I scared the [PoorWordUsage] outta him!
