      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 .

Check out this #2, Have you seen this yet???

Recommended Posts

In Dunn County north of Menomonie (Connorsville) a farmer was combining corn and ran over this bear in a den. The den was a hole in the ground covered with corn stalks and the combine drove right over the den killing the bear. This story was confirmed by Steve Olson today, Steve works for St. Croix County Land and Water Conservation Department and lives about 2-miles from the farm where the bear was killed. Steve had a large bear on trail camera a couple of years ago, this may or may not have been the bear.

Hanging weight (no insides) of this bear was 618

pounds. Rough measurements from head to tail (no legs) 7 feet and around

the heart girth he was 6 ft around.

Came from my brother who lives and sells feed in Dunn County.

Not to be confused with the mountain lions, deer in a combine, and monster Amish Buck shot near Greenbush.

If you haven't seen this yet, maybe I redeemed myself a little bit.

OK i did some research, looks to be true, BUT, the story i read said he didnt run it over, the bear was digging its den and he didnt see it and the outside tine on the combine went through its ribs.

The fuzzy edges on the bear make it look photo shopped. Stfcatfish from the photography forum has a good eye for fakes see what he thinks.

If I'm not mistaken, I think I just heard the woman ask the bear to turn and cough. Hans

YES THIS STORY IS TRUE! I live in the area, know who the people are, it's 100% true. My dad has seen a lot of bears this fall while combining also, hasn't managed to get one though! This bear is a monster!

Yeah, actually the picture is real. All you paranoid people on here make me laugh. You think everything is photoshopped. Just because it didn't happen to you, you think it is fake. This is why my husband and I refuse to EVER post a picture on here if we happen to shoot a big critter because some on here would whine and cry that it's photoshopped or fake. Well guess what, some things in life are real. Some of you are good for a laugh, thats for sure.

I am waiting for some good hard evidence. Hard to dispute how many farses are sent around. It just doesnt look real.

The story may be real. But something of that magnitude must have something more for a story behind it somewhere if its true.

I vouch that a very large black bear ended up hanging in the meat locker in Augusta WI. As for the actual size, story, and photo posted here - I don't know.

Must be some better photos, hopefully some will surface soon. I don't know why anyone would mess with a photo of an already large bear, but anything goes on the net these days.

fishtrapgirl - can you get some more photos?

Here's another monster hit by vehicle in the central part of scoonie - also not far from my stomping grounds. I'll vouch again for this one.
