      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 .

Dayton police find missing hunter's body

I found this on the Channel 5 website.

"Dayton police find missing hunter's body

Dayton Police found the body of missing deer hunter, Matthew Daniel, in a wooded area near a golf course Sunday.

Daniel, of Rogers, lived approximately 10 miles away from where officials found his body.

His family told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that Daniel had gone to his friend’s property to bow hunt alone.

The police said they responded to a 911 call shortly after midnight at the Sundance Golf Course. They found Daniel's body hanging from a strap on his deer-hunting stand.

Daniel’s sister told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that her brother was very familiar with the property.

Daniel grew up in Rogers and was a maintenance employee for the Osseo School District. He leaves behind his wife and 10-year-old daughter.

Investigators from the Dayton Police Department and the Hennepin County Sheriff's Office are looking into the case. An autopsy has been scheduled for Monday.

Dayton is 30 miles northwest of Minneapolis."

Several things stand out for me. One is "Alone"- "found after midnight" and "Hanging from a strap in his treestand" He also left behind a Wife and 10 year old daughter-- This is a very sad story.

Some Saftey Reminders come to mind here.

1) always let someone know where you are going and when you will return.

2) Always use a Full Body harness - but be aware that without some sort of way to take the pressure off of your legs and get circulation going you can still die from hanging by a harness. (The old waist/chest strap are far more likely to cause death.) Use as short of a lead off of the harness to minimize the drop distance. ( It will also make for an easier return to the stand if you fall).

3) Cell phones are a good thing to take on your hunts if you have service. Keep them on and accessable.

My thoughts go out to the family and friends of Matthew Daniels.

Please be safe out there
