      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 .

Heavy Duty duck call

Recommended Posts

Fish&Fowl

Digging through my dad's gun cabinet, I found a duck call made by The Heavy Duty Call Co. by Howard Harlan in Nashville, TN. It was given to him for being in my uncle's wedding and has sat in its box ever since. It's a double-reed black rosewood hand-checkered call.

I have been trying to find out as much as I can about the calls, but basically all I've gotten is that they are a collector call, as I can't get the actual website to open. The paper that came with it says the call sells for $150. Anyone have any experience with them or anything interesting?? I'm thinking about putting it to use this fall.

Does it have the green box? The best place to find out info is CCO but I know they wont let me publish the website here. I have seen that he is still alive and that he is a very nice guy. I know how to get his # for you, just send me an email. Contact info in my Profile.

Is this an older call/antique? I dont know anything about it but the guy I guide for is one of the top apraisers for antique waterfowl gear in the country. If you would like I could give you his contact info and I am sure he could tell you something about it.

Well the calls were made to be collector items in the first place as far as I can tell. It is about 16 years old and has never seen anything but the inside of that box. I had just remembered my dad had it and since I have started to become more of a waterfowl addict with each year, I wanted to learn more about it-like if I should be taking it out in the blind since I need a good double-reed or buy an Echo and keep this in its box. I think I will be doing the latter and put this one on display when I get my own house someday.
