      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 .

My dog decided to start retrieving!

Was out in SoDak Sun-Tues and shot a bunch of birds. The funny thing is that Dixie decided to start retrieving. Not sure if it was competition with the labs that were with us that flipped the switch or if it was just having a bunch of opportunities in a row. The first day she didn't retrieve but would pick up the bird and mouth it for a little bit which is what she normally does. The second day she retrieved one out of a cut bean field. She just picked it up and walked with it about 20 yds to me. The last day she made 4 running retrieves with one having her go under a fence and back through cover to get to me. So I'm a little shocked to say the least. I had come to grips with her just being a dog that finds dead and crippled birds but that I'd have to go to her to get it. We'll have to see on the next outing if she continues this behavior (I sure hope she does) but I have to say I liked what I saw. If any of you retriever guys have any tips on how to enhance or at least keep this going in the right direction let me know.

Thanks,

gpsman

Not sure on any tips for you, but we had the same thing happen this year in our hunt in ND. One of the guys GSP started retieving and did so on a decent number of birds. From the sounds of it prior to that hunt the dog did not retrieve that much. Maybe it was from the 4 labs that were running around him getting all the birds?

Funny thing was that he would only grab the bird by the head and retrieve it, he would not grab the body.
