      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 .

MN wildlife artists

Recommended Posts

We're looking at replacing the mirror over the fireplace with a wildlife print from a MN artist. I really enjoy the works of Michael Sieve, David Maass, Les Kouba, & the Hautman's. Who are some of your favorites and what have been some good resources for obtaining them? Art Barbarians is a great site I've found to be very helpful. I'm primarily focused on whitetails, ringnecks, turkeys, ruffies, & woodies. Suggestions?

Art Barbarians is a great shop. I've had them frame some prints for me in the past. They actually used to be a sponsor here at FM and thats how I learned about them. The used to sponsor some of the photo contests here.

I'm a Kouba fan myself for waterfowl prints.

Where is John House located at?

Lives in Melby, Minnesota.

He's actually a relative of mine, married into my dad's side of the family.

He's painted what he refers to as the Grand Slam of MN wildlife art - the state duck stamp, pheasant stamp, turkey stamp, and trout stamp.

Eric Bjorlin (Plymouth) gets a vote from me. I agree with the others, but I would check him out. His "Dad and I" series is pretty cool, along with his ice fishing prints. Good luck on your search.

I own some of Meger's work - he's got some talent for sure. I couldn't find anything on House. Bjorlin's got some great ice fishing stuff. Thanks for the heads up on him. It's going to be tough to narrow it down. Where do most of you guys buy your prints and/or get them framed?

Bruce Miller- I have his set of all the deer zones in Minny of whitetails-excellent stuff. Hard to find now, i would imagine. We bought ours from an art gallery in Richfield-but that was 10-12 yrs ago and darned if I can remember the name!

You didn't mention Loon prints but if that is of interest, Jeff Renner in the Park Rapids area does nice work. He does much more than Loons and is certainly worth taking a look at.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. I wasn't aware of all the talented artists we have here in the state. I've got some new names to add to the list for sure. When you can't shoot anything big enough to mount, hang a print right?

I second this recommendation!
