      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 .

Recommended Posts

I live in Maple Grove can anyone recommend me to a good Hoyt dealer near me? Has anyone been to Archery Specialist? I'm also looking for someone who is willing to take a trade in or help sell my old one.

The guy at Archery specialist knows his stuff, he rubs some folks the wrong way, but he does good work at a decent price. Capra's has a few Hoyt's, but not much for lefties when I was looking. I ended up buying my Katera from Archery Country in St. Cloud. It was a bit of a drive, but they had a huge selection of Hoyts, including a left handed Katera XL in stock with a 29" draw. If you want to travel a bit, Schaffer performance archery in Burnsville has a great shop. John is probably the most knowlegeable technician in the twin cities (and probably still the best shot). If you were looking for a Matthews I'd definitely steer you to Schaffer, but his Hoyt selection has been a little thin in recent years.

I got my Ross from Archery Specialist a couple years ago. Brian knows his stuff, and will work with you to get you shooting well but is a little opinionated. Doesn't bother me since he knows what he is talking about.

Since he is so close I'd go there or Cabin Fever in Victoria. They had a few of the newer Hoyts a couple weekds ago when I was in.

Brian at Archery Specialists is an interesting guy. He's pretty cocky, but he's earned the right. He really knows his stuff. That bothers some people.

He used to work at Cabin Fever but he struck out and started his own place.

If you don't like him head down to Victoria. Jeff, Neil and the guys at Cabin Fever will get you set up right. That's where I get all my work done.

I have to go with bwana. them guys set my bow, and my fiances bow in a clamp, got out the lasers and square, tweaked everything around, and was absolutely perfect on paper tuning. the first time around. no further adjustments needed! i shoot blazers, and my fiance shoots 4" feathers. her holes looked like they came from a pencil. the feathers laid flat to the shaft going through the paper, and didn't tear a thing, other than the "bullet hole" You almost have to applaud them!

    • Might find it in here...... https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/exhibits/butterfly-rainforest/id-guide/orange/  
    • Very nice photos eyeguy54.
    • Ya he comes home the 29th getting excited for pheasant going to take a trip out to sodak this year Ended up showing a guy from work who is a first time bow hunter a couple of my spots in Sherburne. Was going to walk kunkel after for grouse but it ended up getting too late so just went home. Was hoping for some good weather this weekend but doesn't look too good. Friday is a high of 90! no thanks Maybe I will get a morning sit in for deer hunting if the rain cooperates
    • anybody know what it is?
    • I've been finding a few hens, but nothing like last year (which was great for me).  Here's one that was just shy of ten pounds sitting next to my daughter.
    • You may as well paddle a green kiddie pool around.  Might find one for 50 cents if you look a little. Um, yeah, I've actually seen it done. 
    • Good move!  I'm sure they are thankful! I might've made an offer if I'd seen this before but they'll probably be better used in the organization that received them. Sorry the hear your hunting days are over.
    • There is no way Koivu doesn't get more term and $$ in free agency, not a lot more but he gets more. Marleau is trending down and got more money, Hansel got 750 less and is not in the same league as Koivu. I was hoping for something like 4.5 or 5 but what he got at 2 years is very reasonable. He is a lifelong wild, our captain and a great player, we have no immediate replacement, he makes our team better for the next 3 years be it 1/2/3 center. This isn't something to get upset about, scandella trade sure, aging parise sure but that had to be done, not getting a young center sure but that can sometimes be out of our control because it takes two teams to trade. I get it people are bitter about last year but what fan base isn't bitter about this or that? 
    • I ran 10 gauge wire from my shore or generator feeder to my converter.  Way over kill for a 2000 watt generator but if you ever take it camping or run it off a 3k in the summer it's nice to be wired for the extra wattage.  10 feet of 10 gauge really isn't that much money on the whole project... nice thing about running your inverter directly from the battery and splitting a couple outlets is they are always ready to go.  Just hit the switch on the inverter and you don't have to mess with unplugging and plugging in strings of 110 outlets.  Behind my tv the bottom outlet runs of the Genny and the top runs of the inverter.  Nice thing is if I ever wanted to run the whole 110 system off the inverter I can just run a 6 inch cord with a male plug on each end out the top outlet and into the bottom and power the whole house.
    • This looks like it will work to me. I had thought of doing something similar when I was thinking of going with the inverter, seperate 12v fuse block and onboard charger. Would have wired a "hot" outlet direct from generator. Then ran a piece of romex with a male plug wired onto it and tied the 110v into that. then I could have either plugged that into the "hot" outlet along with the onboard charger, when the generator was running. Or I could have plugged it into the inverter when needing to run off battery power.
