      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 .

Photo Tips

Just heard of a great tip about positioning your "trophy".

In camp or your truck bed , pose the deer with the legs tucked in and then tie the antlers and ears so the head is upright. (after gutting) Overnight rigormortis will set in and keep your deer "posed."

The next morning you can pick a scenic spot for the trophy photo.

Pretty cool idea!

Better than that "stiff as a board" shot from next morning. I would also think this would work pretty quick in below freezing temps as well.

Thanks

I have heard some people even keep fake eyes in their pocket to use so the photo looks as good as possible.

Great pic but the only fault I see is the hunters hat. Turn the bill up a little bit so you can see his/her face with out shadows. Also have some kind of backlight if popssible. TRuck lights work good if its night time and you have the deer in a field or whatever. Or position the sun at your back. Sunsets can be awesome in hunting pics but they may cast a shadow on the person and the animal giving a shilloutee apperence. Use a flash even if not needed to make sure this dosent happen. Just some tips I learned in photography class in HS.

Yes, I agree about the "fill flash".

The picture isn't mine, but I liked the trick the person used and was one I haven't heard before, so I thought I'd pass it along.

Going to try it on the the big buck I'm going to kill this weekend. grin.gif

Where I hunt the only problem is , if I positioned it on the ground like that, it would by wolf food by morning, I have to hang them high .
