      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 .

Hens hens hens!!

Recommended Posts

Although I love to see an abundance of hens because it tells me that they are doing well and hopefully a good sign for spring, I wish there was some sort of ratio of roosters in the birds we saw today.

Of the 15-18 birds we saw, maybe 4 were roosters and they were flushing very wild, 50+ yards out while the hens were holding so tight you could kick them out of the brush. They flushed very strong so I don't doubt their health, but they were holding tight.

The highlight of my day was bringing my 8yr old daughter along for her first hunt ever. She had a blast. The .410 was a little heavy for all the layers she was wearing, but without the gun she was a trooper. I'm very sad I didn't have the camera for some photos, but I'm sure there will be many more hunts with her.

All in all we flushed 15 or more birds, a small doe and a large owl. That was neat. No shots fired, but the action was awesome. I can't wait to share the outdoors again with my new hunting partner Emily. She's very excited to go again.

Good to see you're building the lifetime of memories in the field PS.

I might be making a trip out west again one of these days to meet up with Boilerguy if you're interested.

We (my son and I)saw a lot of birds on Saturday with the majority being roosters.

On the drive home we had 7 roosters fly across the road and almost end up in the bag courtesy of our windshield, but that was the most we saw of the colorful ones.

I'm definitely interested in heading out there again. We'll keep in touch.

Sounds like your daugher is quite the trooper, that's awesome. Had the same happen to me this weekend. On Saturday we flushed about 12 birds and 10 of them were hens. It was still a great hunt b/c the action was fast and dog was working well. I think the best is yet to come this year
