      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 .

Bow hunting story

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to pass on to all of you that read this... This morning, 11/05/03, I was out bowhunting. At 0800 I had lowered my bow down from my stand and was planning on leaving and setting up in a better spot for the afternoon. I took one last look around and looked at my watch again and thought, it's only 0800...I should stick it out just a little longer and see if anything moves. Well sure enough, just as I decided that I was going to get down, I hear, crunch, crunch in the snow behind me and to my right. I looked and saw a nice 6 pointer coming down the trail that I was watching! I quickly pulled my bow back up and looked over to where the deer was...he was just stepping into a shooting lane I had cut at 20 yards! By the time I had my arrow nocked, he was in some brush and I didn't have a shot! Now he was walking straight away from me and I blew on my grunt call. The deer stopped and looked my way but he continued on straight away from me. I blew on my grunt call one more time with the same results. The buck freshened up a scrape about 60 yards away from me and I thought...what am I going to do? I decided to snort or blow air out like deer do when they are alarmed. When I did, that deer stopped dead in his tracks and turned right around and looked in my direction for about 2 minutes! I thought to my self, your've got nothing to lose, so I blew air one more time. That deer made a bee line right back to me! This time I was ready! I shot him at 10 yards and dropped him in his tracks as he was following my foot prints right to my tree! This is the 2nd time this has worked for me when a deer was out of range and wouldn't responed to my grunts. At that point you've got nothing to lose! Hope this helps one of you some day. Good luck bowhunters! And best of luck to you rifle hunters! Please, pass on your stories!
