      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 .

used them last season in my 2nd gun during early goose season. Made it legal and the doves filled the gaps between the honker visits. Doves are pretty fragile and the 7 steel will do the job if you do. Make OK swatter loads for cripple in the waterfowl season too!

A few things to think about. Steel shot is much harder than lead. This means that steel shot will pattern tighter because the pellets don't deform on firing or as they are pushed through the choke. Typically a gun will pattern one choke tighter with lead. I/C is like mod and mod is like full. Another thing about steel is that it is much less dense than lead. So for one ounce of shot you will actually get more bb's than the equivilant 1 oz lead load. So what does this mean for you and doves? It means that you'll proably get good pattern density with the I/C choke. You didn't say how many oz's of shot so it's tough to say for sure, but I'm guessing 1 - 1 1/8 oz.
