      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 .

Attack of the grouse

Although this happened this spring, I thought I'd share and see if this has happened to any one else.

I was up in the Tomahawk/Rhinelander area of northern WI this spring(May/June) for a summer school camp for natural resource students(UWSP). We worked in groups of four throughout, and they also happened to be the guys I lived with. We were walking down a trail(tracking radio collars) when we heard a hissing/charging animal coming through the brush at us. I immediatley thought coon/skunk/badger/who knows what and we all started backing away when a grouse comes charging out fo the brush(on foot) all puffed up, wings out. It startled me and I was running backwards into the brush, it turned up trail and started to charge my buddy, then took to flight and chased him down the trail about thirty yards before veering back into the woods. We were all shocked, and when we heard chirping we knew it was protecting it's brood, but I hadn't heard of someone being attacked by a grouse before!

Thanks for the story. I havn't been attacked but have thought I would be knocked out of the tree a few times while bowhunting when they flew between trees

Hadn't been attacked but had seen the all puffed out grouse before. I was walking the trail in early November when I heard this chirping/hissing sound in the thickets. I turned to look and notice something slowly moving to the movements of me as I was slowly moving side to side tring to get a good look. Long story short, it made good stew that night.
