      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 .

The road gets another one....

There's a particular area I hunt that's had 4 different toms picking through corn stubble, about as predictably as Old Faithful.

Yesterday afternoon when rounding the corner, from a mile or more away, I knew one had met his match. The car got it pretty bad too, plastic front end peices all over the road. I think it was a grey older GMC or Olds judging from all the car parts he left \:\) I'm going to give him a mouthful for driving too fast in turkey country \:\)

The group was 3 younger toms and a much larger older bird. The old bird has great spurs and an avg. beard, but he stands a few inches taller than his 2yr. old Tom buddies. This bird was one of the youngsters. 3/4" or so spurs, 9 1/4" beard, 20lbs 4oz.

Were ya able to salvage a breast off him? We were all hoping it was ol' longspur that met his demise... less competition in the turkey contest! ;\)

You bet, the breast meat was still very warm. Must've happened just before I turned the corner. Kind of funny, it was de ja vu. Last spring, I was coming back from a DNR Turkey Clinic I held, and I found a dead hen at the same crossing point, freshly hit. I salvaged the breast meat and got a tag from the CO. This time, I was heading back from an NWTF meeting, and there he was.

Friends are giving me a hard time, saying that all the pictures of birds I've hoisted in the spring are just local roadkill grin.gif. This guy could've passed for a bird you killed save the broken legs. Must not have been hit too hard.

Now that's a shame right there. I'm sure any of us would have been proud to put a tag on that bird.

Nothing wrong with a little road kill for the kettle.

I was looking at the leg a little bit last night, specifically one of the spurs, and reminded that the black spur is simply a finger-nail-like covering over bone. Whatever ran it over basically peeled the black part off, revealing the blood and bone beneath.
