      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 .

longest Spur?

We have the longest tailfeather so I thought the longest spur thread would fit in. That bird was shot in 2003 and is the longest spurred bird I've ever shot. A true .75" Anybody else?

I wish my digital camera worked so I could post pics from my bird of '06. I still have the legs from him. He was the largest bird to date that I have taken: 24 lbs and the spurs were 1 1/4" long measuring straight out from the leg as you did. If you factor in the curve, they're 1 1/2" long.

I saw another bird today that I think will beat this one. His beard is at least 4x the mass of any other that I have taken and at least 12" long. Even though it's cold and his feathers were ruffled a bit, I would estimate this bird will easily go 30 lbs. I kid you not, he is an incredible monster of a turkey. We'll see what happens this spring.

Just shot this one last weekend off some public land in the cattails. My longest one in awhile. [image]http://www2.snapfish.com/gettnurl?a_=209847805&u_=78091965&n_=SFOPRD07&subscribername=SNAPFISH[/image]

Had me going for a little bit. Was thinking, "now that's a BIG rooster.

Hey Lep7mm, turkeys have their own forum now.

I've got a pair of 3/4 inch spurs, too. They came off of about the fourth rooster that I ever shot. Still kickin myself for not mounting that bird.

yeah yeah yeah, I know. I just had to throw that in there laugh.gif

A 3/4" spur on a pheasant is a mature bird.

I do have a pheasant that I shot 12 years ago that had 24" tail feathers, but he had spurs of a young bird.

I saw a rooster with inch and a quarter spurs that nobody shot. The dog caught it. Knid of lost some magic since no one shot it. But the spurs were awesome. 3/4" is a huge spur otherwise.

My dog caught a rooster a couple days ago and that is the best rooster I have ever put into my game bag even though it had some small spurs. She also picked up a hen an hour later, it was her best 2 days of hunting so far laugh.gif
