      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 .

One finally hit a snare..

I finally got one today! This is my first year of snaring so I thought would experiment with only 6 snares set in and around a slough just north of town. It finally paid off!

Since our local fur buyer is almost done accepting fur, it looks like this may be my one and only fo this year. However, next year...look out as I am planning to step it up a notch! I am already pumped! Anyways, here are a few pics...

Next year I plan to skin the ones I catch. The critters in the back ground are the ones my buddy caught in the last week. Since he doesn't have a good place to skin them, he just drops them off at the fur buyer.

I'm sure you are fine Rost, to everyone please be carefull where you set your snares. We have a guy here that sets snares without permission, and has killed one very good hunting dog, and my cousin had his snared twice in one day while he was hunting Pheasant. If he hadn't been very close to his dog, he would have lost him too. I have no problem wih trapping or snares but a little common sense goes a long way. CJ

I understand your concern CAJ. I can assure you that I have permission and am well aware that I need to set my snares carefully with domestic animals in mind.

Thanks!

Rost Glad to hear you are careful with the snares. The ones set here were out very early in the hunting season. The furs wern't prime yet anyway. The guy that set them thinks it was funny when we asked him about them. He nolonger has the privelage to trap and hunt on a lot of ground after the little confrontation we had with him. He wishes he had been a little more polite with the land owners in the area. CAJ

Well, if I recall correctly, snares are illegal in MN before Dec 1 unless they are set underwater. If you were in MN, maybe call the local CO.

Rost, that is only for the farmland zone not the whole state.
