      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 .

Archery Turkey Question

Recommended Posts

I didn't get a turkey earlier this season and have two weeks of free time so I figured I would buy an archery license. I don't want to go out and buy special turkey broadheads. What kind of shot placement do you look for when using regular fixed blade broadheads? Any other tips would be helpful too. Thanks.

Since most shots are broadside, you have to aim for their wing bone to try and catch a lung.

If this is your first archery hunt, the very best thing you could do is take half an hour, put on your camo, grab your bow or gun, and take a hike into the woods with your blind. Practice setting the blind up like you will in the woods, next to turkeys. Get inside and shoot a few arrows. Draw your bow at least and practice doing what you'll need to do to make the shot. It makes doing the real thing a lot easier.

Other than that, it's just like any other hunt with decision making, decoys, calling, taking shots, etc.

Good luck, practice makes perfect.

I just went to try and buy a license but it wouldn't let me buy one. I misread the rules for the archery season. It said lottery applicants that are successful in the Spring lottery are not eligible. I took this to mean people who got a bird in the regular seasons were not eligible, but really if you were drawn for the regular hunts you can't get an archery license. Thanks for the help anyway.
