      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 .

Teaching the Crawl

Recommended Posts

spearingboy

Hey everyone. I ended up getting the new Sportdog Wetland Hunter 2000. It's working good so far. I just had a question about teaching my dog to crawl. Has anyone tried this with or without success? I think it would come in handy for sneaking/jump shooting. I've taught her to lay down so I think that should help. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot.

I've actually done this. It works great for the type of hunting you mentioned. It works a lot better if your dog has the capability of lying down with her legs lying strait back. I have a chesapeke that does this well. Trained her by short leashing by your left side. I do left due to gun in my right hand. With her legs back she crawls right beside me. I have about a foot of line between my hand and her collar and crawl starting slow and short( like 5ft goal first), if she/he gets up start over, once you hit the small goal praise her as she has done something a lot of dogs can not. Make your goals longer and longer. If she can crawl with you for more than 25 to 50 ft she will be great. The next step that I trained was to (stay) in the crawl position while you crawl another 10 to 15 more feet. This is where you would shoot. I wouldn't ever shoot over your dog, this step eliminates this from happening. Not only pellets, but her hearing is sensitve also. Hope this helps you in your training.

Best of Luck!
