      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 .

bowfishing

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what weight you guys pull for bowfishing? The bow i was using was a friends and it seemed lite but it worked fairly well. I went out for my first time today with a couple buddies and it was a blast. Nice way to break up finals week up at college. Maybe someday in the near future i'd by another bow just for bowfishing, but after i bought a reezen for deer hunting this year its kinda hard to justify it. Anyways my buddy says he likes 50 but i was thinking you wouldn't need that much. Just wondering what you find to be most effective weight wise.

I shoot 55, because that is what my recurve draws. I have shot 50, 45, and 40. All will do the job, but I prefer the 55. I get better speed and longer and deeper shots than I would shooting the 40lb draws.

I say shoot what you can shoot 50-150 times with and still do so with some sort of accuracy.

Thanks guys im use to shooting a 70lb bow so the poundage isnt an issue i was just wondering what an ideal weight is. The only reason im thinking about going 35 or 40 is so the girlfriend could shoot also. That way i wouldnt have to buy two bows since she is always wanting to get in on the action.

do you really want to risk having a new bow over the water after you spent all that money on it. for 30-40 bucks you can get a compound at garage sale and maybe on hsolist. why risk putting your new one through that kind of abuse when its cheaper to buy an old bow than it will be to have a string or cable put on your new one.

    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden. 
    • Not sure with Hyundai, but Ford has a backup slot if the key fails to work wirelessly. A good reading of that owners manual will tell you.
    • uggh that has to be a brutal day of work thinking if it is dead or not!  Good luck tomorrow!!
