      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 .

...can I keep it?


My first brand new bow in a long time.

Mathews DXT. Extreme 5 pin site, Trophy Taker full containment rest, S Coil stabalizer, Hoyt lightweight quiver.

The guys at A1 Archery in Hudson, WI did a great job getting me all set up with the new rig. Can't wait to start running some broadheads through her tonight!

I'll bet that thing sure is fun to shoot. Congrats I sure wish I could have one. My Mathews is 10 years old, it would be nice to upgrade.

My old bow was a 10 year old Mathews and I still love it, it still shoots great! Hopefully this one will treat me as well for a long time to come.

And yes, it is fun to shoot!

Good luck this fall!

My daughter is shooting great out to 15 yards. Just have to get her poundage bumped up a little more and see how she shoots broadheads and she'll be set. We're really looking forward to Sept. 19th!!!

After shooting this new bow for the week I gotta say I'm really like'n it. It comes over as smooth as any I've ever shot. Back wall is nice and solid with no tendancy to rip the string out of your hand if you don't stay back on it. It's about 20 FPS faster than the old bow, shooting a roughly 400 grain arrow at about 260 FPS from only 55 lbs.

The release is quiet and stable with almost zero hand shock. The pin stays put on the target after release with no problem.

It shoots my G5 Strykers as good as my field tips.

I think the short axel to axel is gonna be a real benefit while hunting out of my pop up blinds that I find myself useing more and more as I get older. Even the new era of sight pins are so much brighter than the older ones that they also will be a nice addition inside a dark blind.

Overall I'm very happy with everything I've seen so far.

Can't wait to put that pin on a deer....

    • you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?
