      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 .

What is the Most Comfortable Hang On Stand?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I'm always looking for a better stand for all day hunts. The two most comfy hang ons I have now are a Gorilla w/arm/foot rest, and an Ameristep Grizzly (arm/footrest/and hanging seat.)

I've recently been looking at the Millenium Hang on. Does anybody own one?

Any input on comfortable stands would be great. Arm rests and foot rests are important to me, weight is not.

By far I gotta go with the Trophyline Tree Saddle. But if your looking for arm and foot rests then its not for you.

My lone wolfs are the most comfortable for me. Being able to move a bit without making a pop or squeak is nice.

What model do you like? I love my wolf sit/climb, the sling type seat is awesome, but I don't see their hang-ons as being comfortable for 12 hours.

(I also have the wolf hand climber seat and hate it, sitting on a wood bleacher is just a comfy. But maybe I'm just a wussy smile )

I have heard of these before. How do you prefer to hunt with them? Steps/ladder sections?

Here is another guestion. Could I use it in conjunction with my climber- meaning using my lone wolf hand climber portion as a foot platform and the tree saddle as my top (seat portion)? And climb a tree?? Essentialy making the worlds lighest climber? (9 lbs) You could walk new counrty all day and if you found some hot sign be up in the tree in no time smile

Follow my madness?

I have only used them with steps because I dont have any climbing sticks. I can get usually get set up in a little over 5 minutes depending on how fast and how many steps I put in. I would like to get some sticks because I think I could get set up even faster but you would still probably want a couple of steps at the top of the ladder for a place to rest your feet.

I dont think using your climber would work like that becasue you have to tie the strap of the tree saddle around the tree and you would constantly have to keep tieing and untieing the strap until you got up high enough. I have sat in my tree saddle before and used a portable stand that was alreay up as the foot rest just because it is more comfortable to sit in than on a portable seat so using your climber like it was designed to get up in the tree then sitting in the saddle would work but if your gonna take the time to carry your climber in the woods you might as well just bring some steps or sticks with and save some weight.

I like the Boss XL I think it's called Huge platform comfy seat. Doesn't have side arm rests but it's a nice hang on tree stands.

I own 3 Milleniums. Couldn't be more comfortable. Easy to hang because of the bracket. Quite lightweight. Pretty quiet too. I can shoot my bow without much trouble while seated. I recommend cinch or ratchet strap on bottom after hanging for added sturdyness.

    • Well the big tom slipped away from me Man He was big be was coming i ti my decoys but the hens went the otherway and he turned and followed  i drew back and almost gave it a shot but it was a wierd angle on one knee and i decided to not    i will get him friday when i go out next
    • The strange part is the better teams/points we had in the standings the worse we looked in the playoffs. It is probably a good thing to get some new eyes on the team and see what happens. I think someone else will scoop up Fletcher fairly soon, like players and coaches sometimes a change of scenery is in order. 
    • red polls and purple finches here daily for a while now. not many house finches.  brown headed cowbirds are here. flickers. Saw a vireo yesturday. 
    • Here are some pictures from my hunt.
    • I have not seen a redpoll in over a week
    • The finger needed to be pointed in his direction, after a few coaches got it first.  I keep reflecting back on the team of 2002-2003, Marion led the bunch in points but the rest was either rookies,  hand me downs and two goalies that got hot. Throw in guys that weren't afraid with lots of heart and they made it work.. 
    • Same here I set the blind where they like to be. Even if that is in the middle of a 500 acre sod field. 
    • It just gives me more time to pass on the addiction to anyone I can be to come out. 
    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
