      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 .

Hunting Boots

My bear claws have seen better days. Looking to buy new boots. Wifey told me about some Irish Setters, 800 grams Thinsulate, Gore Tex, on sale at Cabelas. I have been very happy with the Bear Claws. Opinions? Any suggestions? The big difference here is all Cordura -vs- Cordura/Leather mix.

There are a lot of good boots out there. I don't think you can go wrong with any of the major manufactures. I own Browning, Rocky, Lacrosse, and Itasca. All are great boots.

I know Gander has a pair of Irish Setters that are Gore Tex with 600 grams thinsulate for $80. That seems like an awesome deal. (I may pick up a pair myself.)

Good Luck

i got the danner pronghorns 1000g thinsulate w/gortex...they are a great, comfortable boot and you can walk miles in them...BUT... the eyelets on the top are tiny and the boot string comes off of them all the time and you have to retie CONSTANTLY...otherwise, the best boot i have had.

I have a pair of Rocky Lynx 800 gram. I wear them for everything. Hunting all Fall, then I wear them all winter on the Ice. Extremely comfortable.

Sounds like a good deal on the Irish Setters although I have no experience with that boot. I ,like Kodiak, have a pair of Danner Pronghorns. Best pair of boots I have ever had. I haven't had the laces issue as my laces are long on purpose and go around the whole boot one time on top then I double tie the loops. Spent a week in CO elk hunting and they were the ticket then albeit not extreme cold weather. Walking and hiking mainly with some sits lasting up to 2 hours they were great. Paired with the right socks (sorry for the pun) grin.gif they kept my feet in tip top shape. Maybe someone else can chime in regarding the IS boots. WG

metrojoe,

I own a pair of the Gander Irish Setters. Not a bad boot. I've pulled the insoles and put in a more rigid pair. The best boot I've owned was the old Danner Osprey's--all leather. The Gander Setters are a good boot for the money though.

When I lived in Red Wing I used to get Irish Setters as seconds from the factory. They had some little blemish or something I couldn't ever even find. Irish Setters are a QUALITY boot. I highly recommend them.
