      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 .

I'm used to it...and don't really mind. Something beautiful about the way little hairs grow on their head and out of their dirty ears. Most people think they look gross up-close, I couldn't disagree more.

Deitz & Joel, Nice job on the podcast, never to much info.

My biggest problem is getting hungup on what worked on the last bird. Bad habit I guess. frown.gif

Joel, which Gander Mountain will you be at?

Thanks, Dan

Dan:

I'll be at the Lakeville Gander for both seminars.

I know what you mean about "the last gobbler." I find myself doing the same thing, especially if you're hunting a few different states/areas. What just worked well in the Dakotas could be poison back home.

You'll often hear of outdoor writers and experienced turkey guides talking about "taking their temperature." This can be tricky, and involves some smooth turkey-talk and birdy deal-making. In a nutshell, it means taking it easy, and letting the bird tell you what he likes the most.

For me, that means minimal soft calling at first. With no more than ONE foray into the fancy/loud/fast stuff. Even then, I do it after most else fails. If that's what excites him, he'll let you know, then you have to shut up. If you went out on that limb too early, you could've just spooked a call-shy bird that you'll never see.

There's exceptions to that rule, like when trying to elicit a gobble or get a bird excited from a long distance, but each bird is different, and you need to iteratively and interactively feel your way before letting it all hang out, if you do so at all.
