      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 .

Youngester's going out w/ the bow?

Recommended Posts

I'm curious to see how many of us will be taking a young bow hunter out this fall. My daughter is 11 and this will be her first fall bowhunting. She got a new Darton Ranger 3 for her birthday in June and is all dialed in out to 15 yards. There's been a spike buck on the trail cam where one of her ground blinds are at, so it should be exciting next Saturday!!!

I don't know who's more excited!

Good luck this fall to all you bowhunter's out there this fall!

Yep that was me.

I had to laugh when I told them kids I've been shooting bow since I was 3 years old, so I've been shooting for 32 years. A few jaws dropped, too funny, guess I'm getting old??? LOL

Now that I think about it......i must have been one of my dad's 1st archery shop cutomers??? LOL

They had a good turn out, and quite a few girls in the class. Even an adult female in the class, not sure if she was w/ her son or actually taking the class though.

Count me in as one who'll be getting a young miss out there starting next weekend. She just turned 16. This will be her first hunt where SHE is the shooter.

My confidence is high that if we get a clear shot at 20 yds or less, I'll be posting a pic. grin

BTW, bmc, 35 ain't that old yet! wink

Good luck to all the fathers taking out the younger future archers. You will both have the time of your life even if you do not harvest a deer.

Post some pics if you whack one doe or buck.

Bruce,

I'm having issues w/ my GPS module not responding on my graph, a Lowrance LMS 480. I've connected and re-connected everything I can think of and no luck. Cleaned the connections, etc. majorly frustrated!!!

Do you have much experience w/ this type of issue????

Thanks,

Brian

I'm taking my 7 year old out this weekend to sit with me in the 2-man stand.

He's already shooting his bow with me in the back yard and learning a lot about safety and handling. Makes me proud.

Now my 5 yr. old Daughter is asking to come up with me in the stand so she can participate. Life is good.

    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
