      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 .

Zink vs. Foiles

Recommended Posts

Death row calls

They are out of theif river Mn. They make a dandy call!

zink and foils make good calls. I have numerous of both. I still use them, and still like them.

I have 5 foiles calls on my lanyard and I am not a field staffer for them....yet. IMO while you really can't go wrong with any of these, all these calls sound great, Foiles puts out the most volume and best sounds with the least amount of airflow.

Although I do have to say I'm intrigued by Death Row. I've heard some good things about them and I'm all about supporting a MN compnany, are their calls at Cabelas?

Cory does not have them at Cabela's, I do not know if he will soon though. Macks PW sells them. Most are bought straight from him, shows or on the internet though.

Correct me if I am wrong, but doesn't Scheels carry them?

id either say DRC or CnS calls. i have CnS calls and have really liked the sound they put out. They are out of Zumbrota Mn and are all custom and cheaper then the other big guys calls. He hand lathes every call so they all have there special little features.

Calls do not kill geese. It has more to do with your spread/set-up in my opinion, and early season birds are alot less talkative than middle to late season birds. "Just simple clucking will do you just fine in most situations". That has been my experience, and those are the words out of Jeff Foiles mouth: Game Fair seminar 2009.

100% agree. Especially in early season; haven't had to make a noise on well over half the flocks I've had decoy so far this year.

I do prefer foiles over zink for goose calls by a long shot. The PH-2/1 takes the cake when it comes to duck calls though.

Weren't we talking about which calls one other preferred- Foiles or Zink?

I disagree...what if you ran traffic? You see a flock of geese 200 yds away heading to their feeding field and you start calling and flagging to get them to commit your spread. It works. I believe calling plays a big role as a good spread of dekes. These are my experiences.

Maybe it has to do with the pressure of hunting in the area? Good luck on Saturday fellas! Post some pics.

Perfectly put. You shouldn't need a goose call when you are in the field the birds are headed too. But when you are not, it's going to be long day of watching birds fly by if you can't make your short reed sing.

I know that Scheels carried the Life Sentence by DRC last year but I haven't seen them around at all this season. I second DRC very nice call, especially for the money.

    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
    • any rub on it??   I got to try this!!
    • Picked up a new to me sled with only a 122 miles on it!  It's the same sled I already have Arctic Cat Panther 570 fan, which I will only use since I ice fish more then trail ride. Things in perfect shape the guy used it like 4 times with his family and has 120 compression on both sides and is Mint!  Not as pretty as the old Black and red one which has 3165 miles on it but just to nice to pass up. Old ones going on C/list now. 
    • I've got a small one waiting. Just trying to find time when I and the smoker will be in the same spot for enough hours! I have a good feeling that the week after Deer Hunting closes and Ice forms. The smoker will be doing a lot of catch up!!!
    • I wouldn't even bother going to NoDak before Nov 1. Too many yahoos. There's still plenty of guys up there later, but at least most of them are legitimate hunters
    • You can get longer but at a premium, and I'm not a huge fan because of the different firmness from back to bottom along with the groove makes sleeping awkward.  You could make one easy enough or modify a futon.  Find a used one and gut the hardware out to make your own that will blend in better.
    • $4.59/lb not sure how good or bad that is. But I am more intrigued by size and experiment with that rather than a full packer.
