      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 .

I've seen an albino but I've never seen a rooster like the ones in the pics.

Some roosters take a while to get their colors but this one is old enough to be all colored out.

It's weird. Cool, but weird.

There is a hen that color where I hunt down by Regal. She is pure gold/tan with no other colors. I have seen her the past 2 years on the same section of land.

Hmmm...might need to give me some exact coordinates of said specimen for further analysis. Don't read too much into it if my analysis takes place during hunting season, and involves blaze orange, a German wirehaired pointer, and a shotgun... whistle

It could have been crossed breed with a pen raised bird from a game farm.

I use to raise Ringneck, Silver, Golden, Lady Amherst and Black pheasants and one of those in the wild could interbeed with a ringneck and come up with some different color variations.

Only answer I got for you.

Sure would make a beautiful mount.

I would agree with Harvey. It looks like a cross with a domesticated bird or there's a possibility it's got the slightest case of leucism I've ever seen.

Thats a pretty bird. I have seen one similar to that and I notice you are from Sartell (I live near there too), wonder if its the same bird?

When I saw it it was a great distance away so I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me.
