      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 .

Sierra Club anti movement

Interesting bit form a publication I get.

Quote:
The Sierra Club has long pretended to be an ally to hunters and trappers, but if they move forward with a proposed anti-trapping policy, they will have drawn a clear line in the sand that they are no friend to outdoorsmen.

With the proposed policy, the Sierra Club would officially oppose the use of bodygrip traps, foothold traps, snares and other similar devices. The draft policy on the Sierra Club’s website reads in part:

Use of body-gripping devices – including leghold traps, snares, and Conibear® traps – are indiscriminate to age, sex and species and typically result in injury, pain, suffering, and/or death of target and non-target animals.

The Sierra Club considers body-gripping, restraining and killing traps and snares to be ecologically indiscriminate and unnecessarily inhumane and therefore opposes their use.

The Sierra Club promotes and supports humane, practical and effective methods of mitigating human-wildlife conflicts and actively discourages the use of inhumane and indiscriminate methods. Implementation and application of this policy should be based on the most recent and relevant science and should minimize harm to ecosystems.

The Sierra Club just completed a member’s online comment period. The comments will now be reviewed by a six-person National Task Force appointed by the Sierra Club Board. The Task Force will then draft an official policy on the use of trapping devices.

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance sums up the news well:

This new proposal shouldn’t be a shock to sportsmen. Despite claiming for years that it is a pro-hunting organization, the Sierra Club and its local chapters have opposed pro-hunting or trapping initiatives across the country. Its online magazine has even run a story supporting the efforts of Born Free U.S.A., an avid anti-trapping organization.

The conclusion the Sierra Club has made about trapping seems eerily similar to the misinformed anti-trapping agenda pushed by the Humane Society of the United States. Of course, those misconceptions about trapping are easily rebutted with truth. The National Trappers Association “Trapping Facts” page is a good start for those with an open mind.

Unfortunately, I think the Sierra Club decision makers made up their mind long ago…

It is going to be a tough lesson when these groups realize the consequences of making decisions based on emotions instead of cold hard facts.

The word Anti seems to be a growing vocabulary word in this country often times by people that rarely leave the metro jungle. Wouldn't it be great for my little 1 year old girl to be playing outside and get bitten by a rabid skunk, oppossum, or raccoon or coyote or wolf or tom cat or badger ? Because of trapping and shooting these critters, my family feels safer living 20 miles away from any hospital and being the only home on the gravel road. It is not healthy for any animal population to get out of control whether it be an animal hoarder or if things are just left to run amuk. Sorry there's so many dog gone people on this planet they too take up space that was once wild and free to the animals.
