      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...

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.

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!)

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.

Great tip 2thepoint, this is the method I use for feisty ones.

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.
