      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 .

Best Hunting/Day pack for the money?

Recommended Posts

I've been highly considering buying the Eberlestock Singshot pack for bow hunting this year. I will be hunting mostly whitetails this year, but I love to spot and stalk, and might be heading out west for some hunts in the future. The main reason I want this pack is because of the bow carrying feature. I know other packs have this as well, but this seems to be one of the best systems out there for this. The reviews on Cabela's seem to be pretty good. This price is $150 and that is about the most I would like to spend, within reason. Has anyone here had any experience with this pack, or any other packs similar? Just looking for some feed back before I go out and purchase it. Thanks.

Another one I am considering is the Bone collector 1.5 by Blacks Creek, but not sure how well it would hold and release the bow.

I had my mind set on the Badlands Superday (based on badlands reputation and all the reviews I had read) for bowhunting and a trip for elk out west. I stopped at Cabelas and looked at some of the other packs they had there and with help from an associate, I ended up going with Cabelas Bow and Rifle Pack over the Superday and others there. Once I got all the packs fitted properly to my size, the Cabelas pack hugged my frame and hips better than the rest. I guess the moral of the story is if possible, try your pack on before you buy as each may fit a body type better.

I do hear you on the fitment. I tried on the Eberlestock in scheels, but didn't take the time to get it all fitted. Another promising one is the Horn Hunter Mainbeam Pack. Looks to be some quality packs for reasonable prices, just a matter of deciding on features and fitment I guess.

I think each pack you named is a top of the line pack, and you nailed it, fit, features, and weight is what it boils down to. I think you would be happy with any of those packs.

I have the Cabelas Elite Scout pack and am very pleased with it. I really like the "bat wing" flap which allows you to carry clothes and your jacket into your stand without getting sweated up.
