      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 .

Sporting Clays Question...

Recommended Posts

I am looking to shoot some sporting clays a few times in the next couple of months and had to give up my membership at the local gun club ($$$ and time issues). Which means, no membership = no shoot.

So I am wondering if any of you know of any "open" clay shoots (nonmember) around the metro/north metro. I will travel, but I dont want to go more than a couple hours.

I have read a lot about the "Horse and Hunt Club". I beleave they have open shooting available. Anyone shoot there? @ $0.20 a shot shooting the O/U is about the only thing I can afford to shoot, not to mention find rounds for.

Any Ideas help guys.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Looks like I have some more research to do. I will let you guys know what I find out. If anyone else finds or hears about anything let the rest of us know.

Season is getting closer everyday, Doves in a month and a half, and Grouse just a couple weeks after that. Time to get the hands and eyes back in shape.

Horse and hunt is open to the public for clays. I think it's $21 for non-members. I know it's $17 for members and about $11 for kids.

Five courses and you can still shoot lead.

I have been to H&H club a few times this year. They have plenty of open shooting, there is a calender of events on thier web site, but i like to call and make sure befor i drive out there. The price has gone up to $23 dollars for a round for a non-member I'm pretty sure.

Forest Lake Sportsmans Club, Horse and Hunt Club, and Wild Marsh sporting clays are all nice public courses. If you hit up Wild Marsh, bring a buddy because they don't have pullers. I was lucky enough to slip in with a group of guys when I was there last month. It's a real nice facility.

Check out Game Unlimited in Wisconsin. It's about a 15 minute drive from Hudson. Nice coarse, not as high brow as Horse and Hunt club. Last fall it was $20.

    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
