      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 .

First rooster!!

I finally got on the board today. Me and my pup Riley finally got our first flush and first bird of the year. I found a great little WPA that I hadn't been to before. A small section of it isn't on the map, but it was posted legal so we hopped out and hunted it. On the way back into the wind along the field edge we flushed a rooster about 10yds in front. I say we cause I don't quite remember where the dog was, but I let that bird climb a little and hammered him with some #4's out of my O/U 20ga.

The bird dropped behind a berm so I started walking over to see if I could help my rookie dog. No help was needed. He was already walking back very calmly with a rooster in his mouth. I've never seen my springer so calm. I couldn't have been happier. I spent the next 5 minutes looking at that bird and praising my dog.

We hunted 2 chunks of public land. We saw NOTHIng on the first one, except for two other vehicles of hunters who swung by and drove off. No wonder we couldn't find anything. Second place was good, but I think it gets just as much pressure.

The lesson here for me was that I brought along some steel shot. I didn't know where I would hunt, but if I hadn't brought any steel I wouldn't have been able to hunt on that WPA.

Nice report. If you can find those little out of the way places they pay dividends. I have an 8yr old lab with the same name--Riley
