      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 .

what a jerk!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

me and icefishing21 went out for a last duck hunt a week ago. and after about an hour we see a bow hunter leave and go to his truck. but i doesnt bother us so we keep hunting and after awile we pick up and leave and sure enough my tire is flat. and i think huh that guys must have slashed my tire or i just ran over something. so i brought my tire in today and sure enough they said your tire was slashed. and i think what a [badWordUsage] loser. i mean who would do something like that. what an [PoorWordUsage] hole... thanks for reading just needed to vent a little. cole

Whether someone intentionally or unintentionally positioned themselves near another hunter, it would not warrant this action. That is what I teach my fold.

Well, atleast it was only one, Hovermn and myself spend 5 days up in ely on a lake outside of town, we were camping on the other side of the lake, and someone slashed 2 of his tires, what a nice way to come back to the truck, and just luckly had service to call teh tow company otherwise it was 15 mile walk to a major road.

the other thing is, are you sure it was him, could it of been someone else that did it? well traveled road? and just remember what comes around goes around, if it was him, he will get something coming to him...

Just be sure it was him and not someone else who came along. How would you feel if you were innocent and had some irate guy accuse you of it. Whoever did it needs to be taught a lesson however.

not much you can do, forget about it, and move on. Yes it sucks big time, but you must have had a spare, and made it out alright.

Again, that really sucks

Poor plan...trying to meet up with someone that would do this, is not what I would do...who knows what he might do to you ?

Also you have no proof it was him...besides all he would say is " it wasn't me " ...

    • Well he could just hum along with cume by later. Whatever, 
    • It will be interesting how many deer get harvested this muzzleloader season. 
    • I have been one of those that would use the oven to finish. I do not care for the smoke smell on my hands when handling the sausage. Did it seems to take the smoke residue off the skins using this method ?
    • Was out last night pulling cards and checking on blind for this weekend. A lot of bucks hitting and making new scrapes and does still going through them. Hoping still a few out running now they have had two weeks of no one really pushing them.
    • Then you can tell that to all the professional chefs that use sous vide.  
    • My new project involves putting my big boy pants on and upgrading from the 4'x7' panel on the fish house to a 8'x24' for the house. Believe it or not but I had to unhook it from the house for fear of starting a fire due to making too much heat. I haven't quite figured out how to control it yet. 
    • We have a gas furnace too. But if it's sunny we run the entire house on solar. Heat and electric. It may not sound like much but in that 8x12 we have had days where we need to open windows. The one thing it won't do is throttle down or turn off until the sun goes down. I know it's a duh thing but a consequence you don't think of at the design phase. It also works great when you aren't out there  it sure is great to come out to the house after work and the house is already at 60F or warmer   It was only an experiment for a larger project but turned out pretty cool. Something to do. 
    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal.
