      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 .

gift idea?

Recommended Posts

Got a buddy getting married this fall. Loves hunting!!! Has a dog. Hunts mostly waterfowl, some phesant, a little deer. Question is what is that one or two gadgets/toy's that you wish you had or do have that normaly you would not have spent the money on but now just love it! Remember he hunts everything...boat stuff, dog stuff, gun stuff, at home hunting stuff....

$400.00 or less because you only get married a couple times in your life.

Lets hear some good ideas!

Thanks!

A handheld GPS and a range finder are two things that come to mind.

This may sound weird but if it were me I would make sure his new Mrs. isn't going to feel left out by you buying gifts that are designed for his use. I have a couple friends whose wives wouldn't appreciate a gift that will make their husbands want to be gone more weekends!

Maybe she enjoys the outdoors and would use of them else well.

the women always get gifts they want when you get married....i.e new plates, silverware, towels bedding....I mean really when I got married I appreciated the things we got but we didn't need them and I could care less if we got them or not.......but if out of all the gifts I had recieved one fishing rod and reel or a GPS with a chip I would have been happy as one could be!!! The GPS idea is great....hey she can be happy that now she can expect him to return with out getting lost and on time!!! grin.gif

I think the GPS is a great idea. If he already has one you could get him mapping software for the US to show public land, elevation changes etc. or get him a chip to show all of the lakes in the midwest with depth contours, weeds, points etc.

Thinking of both one might consider a nice digital camera. He can take all the hunting and fishing photo's and she can also use it.

That's a good compromise Harvey..........I would also suggest a camcorder as well. A buddy of mine got married and we secretly set up a camcorder in the back of the church and then gave it to them at the reception as their gift. If they already have a videographer then this idea wouldn't be that neat, but if they don't, they'll remember that everytime they use it.

LOL. Thats pretty funny.

If he hunts mostly waterfowl you could get him a nice blind that I always see at those hunting stores. I always like the round hay bale that the top opens up on. Be pretty good for goose hunting. When I got married all my buddies went in and got me/us a very nice grill. Good luck!!

for deer hunting, without a doubt, a trail camera. for a duck hunter get him a case of the new Wingmaster HD. i here its an improvement over regular steel. but very spendy. the GPS is probably the best idea i think the new bushnell ONIX looks like it would be awesome with satelite imagery and topo maping overlayed.

I would buy him a DVD library so he can dream about hunting trips he is missing out on. The trips will be drastically reduced as soon as he says "I do"

A GOOD pair of binoculars. They can BOTH use them. A note might say: so you can keep a clear eye on the years ahead of you.

Or: Here's looking at you....kids!

How about a nice framed waterfowl print for his basement?

Good ideas! I was thinking Nightvision Bino's. Any ideas on prices and quality?

You can figure the more you spend the better your night vision will be. You can buy Gen 1 for less or Gen2 or 3 for more moolah and the vision will be better.
