      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 .

Death Grip

Recommended Posts

I was wondering how many guys use the method of dispatching birds that we call the Death Grip? Had a young man from S.D. show us this a few years ago. You take the crippled bird and take whatever hand you have the strongest grip with and and reach around the back of the cripple and put your thumb and forefinger right where the bird's wings meet the body (wingpits?) and squeeeeze. Pretty soon the bird's eyes close, the head goes limp, the wings usually start to flap and a few more seconds it's lights out. You know they are dead because they will be totally limp. This works pretty slick and sure beats wringing necks or banging their head on a rock or fencepost or whatever. Works on doves, partridge,roosters, ducks. Bigger ducks are tough because they have more lung capacity. Usually only takes a minute or two of hard squeezing on a rooster to put him out. Nice and neat. Be careful with the wing flapping part if they have a broken wing close to the body so not to cut yourself with the broken wing bone.

Never heard of it, and will never do it. If what you say is true, "Usually only takes a minute or two of hard squeezing on a rooster to put him out," that's too long, and the bird is suffering/suffocating longer than it should. Breaking it's neck has to be faster in this case.

Did "ringing" the neck become politcally incorrect these days?

Guess I could see doing something like that on a mounter, otherwise it's about three swings and into the vest for me...

Seems long and unneeded. Wring the neck with a quick twist of the body and it's all over. My goal was to kill them to begin with right?

I am just saying if there is any delay at all it is more "suffering" than wringing the neck. They may flap a bit after the neck is broken but they are dead.

Pull on the head with one hand and pull the legs with the other hand. That is even quicker then twisting the neck and they dont flap. It breaks the neck really quick.

Why don't you guys just shoot them in the head? That way there dead as soon as the dog get's there and they don't get spurred while bringing them to your hand. Pretty simple in my opinion!! smirk (said with sarcasm!)

The only time I will guarantee death in one shot is the advances I make at Mrs Muc. I take a shot and she kills it dead on the spot!

Thats what I do too, superfast. My buddy used to have a dog that never retreived a live bird. Every bird had 4 holes in it from his teeth. It was a big lab, like 112# on the vets scale and this was late season. But I still was impressed when he put 4 holes into some canadas we shot one day.

    • Hey now that looks good! Fish on!

    •   I think you are right with the moderation of Facebook pages.  With forums (in general), it seems like moderators just delete individual posts, or ban certain users.  It seems like what happens more often than not with the Facebook posts is that they'll start off with good info, but 20 mins later some Richard comes along, and the admins just delete the entire post rather than delete certain comments.  Forums are still very much alive and well, and have a tremendous value with being able to retain content....I just don't see them being replaced by social media (in it's current format).  
    • MMMM Taste like chicken ,,, X we need to get together for a ride this year 
    • Threaded spaghetti hotdog bites. Simple, easy, and delicious. All you need is ketchup.
    • Yes del, they have quick pizza delivery  in town, right Dave? . We're having chili dogs n fries. But tacos or grilled cheese are tough to beat..
    •   Bear that's where you and I (and 100% of NHL Players, Coaches, Owners) disagree,  we want a Cup win and you want a good reg season record.  MN N Stars went to a Stanley Cup final and the Wild have made it to the quarters a couple times I believe so last year was not even close to the best season in MN hockey history. Reg Season means NOTHING! They could make the playoffs this year...lots of hockey left to be played and lots of teams closely fighting for spots at the moment which makes it interesting.
    • Lets frame these things for context, we were coming off our best season in MN hockey history, however we have been healthy for exactly 1 game this season and whether you like it or not that is relevant. If you asked him again I doubt you get the same response, or I doubt he said the same thing going into last year. And honestly who even says that? Not even the pens owner is that dumb, they frame it as a goal for the season. Either way its pointless to argue these things, we don't even know if they are in the playoffs let alone going on a deep run. They are playing better as of late so lets hope that sticks around. 
    • Headed out from the house Sunday morning and put on 50 miles.   Looped south from Cloquet then west and back around.  Trails need snow to say the least.  Not another sled on the trails so that was nice but had to keep an eye out for rocks/sticks. Also had 3 turkeys run across the trail right in front of me, I had design's on the last one, but braked at the last minute.  I had visions of fresh turkey in the smoker LOL. With another warm up late this week and no snow, not sure if they will be rideable next weekend or not til we get more white stuff.  Felt good to get a few miles on anyway.
    •   I’ve only heard about the FB banter being obnoxious but haven’t seen it cuz truly, I stay away from FB completely.  My wife fills me in.   What that stuff sounds like is some of the stuff that got moderated out of this/these forums.  That was the intent anyway.  Yes, there were cases of over moderation but honestly, forums in general were just getting popular and it was a learning curve for both posters and site Admins.  I think things are more relaxed now.   I used to think using screen names rather than real names let the keyboard cowboys feel more reckless but maybe not?  Just crazy how some people have NO manners in public.   I’m still hanging in here and hoping activity keeps improving.  I’ve checked out other sites besides FB and still come back here. It’s my home forum.  And it will as long as people are interested in helping others.  You get what you give.  That’s just a constant in life.
