      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 .

New Puppy German Short Hair - Well 11 Months

Recommended Posts

tbreuhl

We just picked up our new dog today - German Short Hair. We went home to think about it and got about 5 miles from the breeder's house and turned around!!! Never had a Short Hair before - all been Labs. Anyone have any tips for me. I do love to hunt but with 3 little kids I don't have a lot of time any more- so it will mostly be a family dog.

All you should really have to teach is "Whoa" and "Come"...And maybe teach the range you want him to hunt.

Shorthairs have lots of energy, they need daily exercise or they can get a little wild around the house. As long as they get a chance to run they are great family pets. These higher energy levels really amount to high energy hunters that cover lots of ground and can hunt multiple back to back days. I have two and they are great.

After 24 hours, we have realized she is a little more timid than intially. She also has only been to the bathroom once in the last 24 hours - all others have been in the house. I just got back from being outside around the block and back and back and back for 30 minutes and nothing. Anyone ever have an experience where the dog would just not go?

We are also hoping the timidness goes away - hopefully just new to a new home stage.

She is gorgeous though and is fabulous with the kids!!!!!!!

Take it slow... many dogs are very slow to adapt to a new enviroment when they are as old as your dog. It may take weeks or months. Use a crate when not supervised in the house to help potty train her, keep corrections and commotion to a minimum until she fully accepts you as her new family. Lots of love and praise and treats will get her over to your side. If she was properly socialized as a pup it will happen sooner than later.

Good Luck!

I will have to agee with jbdragon. You should only have to teach obedience. If you have to teach a dog to hunt and paid more then free..you got robbed.

I have a Viszla from a shelter and it did the same thing. I just kept taking it outside and eventually it became comfortable.

I've had the dog for over two years and it still flinches when you pet its head. The timidness may be more difficult to overcome than you think, or the dog may just not be used to its surroundings yet.

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.

      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
