      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 .

Should be a great pheasant year

It should be another banner fall for Minnesota's 119,000 or so pheasant hunters.

For the third consecutive year, the state's pheasant population remains near its highest level in 25 years, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources roadside pheasant survey, released today.

Hunters are expected to shoot more than a half-million ringnecks for the fourth time in the past five years.

They haven't experienced that kind of hunting since the early 1960s, when they commonly harvested more than 1 million birds yearly.

"This is really new territory for us," said Kurt Haroldson, a DNR wildlife biologist.

The pheasant boom is attributed to six consecutive mild winters, good spring nesting weather and a steady amount of habitat. The weather has been key.

"We've acquired Iowa weather over much of the pheasant range," Haroldson said.

The pheasant index (107 birds per 100 miles of survey driven this year) topped 100 for the third consecutive year. That hasn't happened since 1962-64, during the pheasant heydays. The index was slightly below last year's index of 115 birds per 100 miles -- which was the highest in 20 years.

Minnesota's pheasant season begins Oct. 13 and ends on Jan. 1.
