      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 .

Pheasants in ND.

Recommended Posts

I attended the GNF Advisory meeting last night in VC.The commissioner said....."The way it looks,the pheasants may have been in a train wreck."They won't know for sure how bad until they start taking spring crowing counts and later in the summer.....brood counts.

But it doesn't look good.I asked if they might be looking at reduced bag limits.And the commissioner said that could happen.The last time it was this bad was in 1997,The fall season bag limit was reduced to 2 per day and 6 in possession until Dec. 1.....then 3 and 12 the rest of the season.The following year it was 2 per day for the first 2 weeks.Then 3 per day.Done not for biological reason but to spread out the harvest amongst the hunters.

He also said there was a 15% drop in NR upland hunters as compared to 2007.2 reasons.....$4.00 a gal for gas and almost all the states around us had good pheasant hunting and people may have decided to hunt closer to home.

As an avid pheasant hunter in the area. This really saddens me. I really hope they do throw reduced bag, so that we can start to save what ever birds are left. I may have to stick to deer and waterfowl next fall, or go out west.

A reduced bag would basically be a public relations thing.They said it wouldn't reqally make any difference but it would spread out the harvest.Of course the commercial and tourism people would all be against reducing the limit.
