      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 .

50+ Roosters today!

Recommended Posts

Me and 3 of my dogs went out this afternoon. Thought there might be some action before the storm(s) hit us. It was a hard walk through the tall grass, every step was in 6 to 12 inches of snow. That's tough on us old fat guys. It was a wonderful day to be out.

Saw 50+ birds and 4 deer in all. Of course the 4 or 5 shootable birds were hens. The girls loved the exercise and it's always a good day when you can watch your dogs having fun. We'll see what this weekend brings us for weather.

You can never kill enough roosters.

Ever seen a flock forage in winter, as soon as a hen finds something a rooster runs her off. The roosters eat first & the hens get the scraps.

Best ratio supposedly 11 hens to the rooster. I'm stuck at 5:1 smart buggers

Roosters have absolutly nothing to do with the population. 11-1 is a good ratio. Last time I checked the Roosters didn't lay that many eggs.

I know this is just from another study so put as much merit into it as you want but around 90% of the roosters are "harvestable surplus".

Back to the subject...yeah, I've been running into a lot of birds as well. It's been great and Tom, "Vee" (that we got from you in the summer of 07') is really progressing nicely this year!!

Bailey (puppy #9 out of Laci's 3rd litter). She's really coming into her own. I'm spoiled with her "brother" king (in the photo on your HSOforum as he was with us when we picked her up) as he is exceptional (I know everyone says that abot their dog) but even when I get her out on her own (keep building on her confidence) she does real well.

Plus she is "momma's little girl" and gets spoiled at home.

I remember King, a fine looking Liver/White male. Glad to hear you and Bailey are getting along great. You could email me some bird photos if you got any?

Merry Christmas!!!
