      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 .

Need a hunt'in dog???

Recommended Posts

We hunted a WPA near Hoffman yesterday and as always there was a great yellow lab who joined our hunt. The dog is a great hunting dog. He has one eye, stays close by and is wonderful at getting downed birds. He lives across the street from the WPA and has joined us every time we hunt this area. He is a very nice dog.

So, if you do not have a dog and have always wanted one to join you, do a little scouting around and have the "One Eye Bandit" join your next hunt.

PS. I'm not encouraging anybody to take the dog. Just enjoy his company. He is a nice pup!

We've had a dog that would join us on hunts out in ND. Had both eyes, all four legs, both ears and both errr ummm, you know, based on the attention he was giving the female dogs in the hunting party.

He wasn't a good hunter by any means, but sure did like to hang out. So much so that if he heard a group of hunters a mile away, give him 5 minutes and he'd be pushing birds before you got there.

I had a Saint Bernard follow us from the farmers yard and run along with us for an hour this weekend. The thing was huge, but really friendly. Problem was the thing kept on running into the cover I wanted to hunt, and there was no way I could keep up with it, and it did not want to go home. Finally just gave up and left.

The running joke for the rest of the weekend was that if the thing was going to hunt with us it better have a wooden whiskey barrel around it's neck for after the hunt.

Haha that is an awsome story, that dog must love life, joining every guy that walks the WPA and chasing roodie's. This year my dad and uncle lost his dog in a massive corn field for an hour( the dog took off in there after some birds and could not be found) They went back to the parking lot and a guy and his son were waiting there. I guess the story goes like this: Shortly after the dog took off in the corn he could not find my uncle and headed to the parking lot. When he got there this guy and his son were going to hunt the opposite way my uncle went (without a dog) and marley (my uncles dog) happily followed them. He stayed with them the whole field and even scared up a rooster for them that they shot, and retreived the bird to them to boot. While Marley was hunting with this guy and his son, my uncle was blowing his whistle and looking for the dog the whole time. Eventually my uncle went back to the parking lot and he found his dog, and got a thank you from the guy.
