      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 .

Floating or Ghoast round Legal??

Recommended Posts

So some say it is illegal to have a floating or Ghost round (in between the chamber and magazine) I think it is legal cause the waterfowl booklet states "…With a shotgun that can hold more

than three shells, UNLESS you plug it

with a one piece filler that cannot be

removed without disassembling the

gun."

So if your gun is capable or you changed it so it is capable what are your guys thoughts?

Some guns can keep a fourth round right below the chamber but not in the magazine.

I'm not sure on the legality, its a gray area, but how many ducks can you really kill on shot #4?

as I understand it you can only have three shells in your gun and thats it. a ghost round would be four but I guess you would be better asking a question like that to the DNR or your local CO. go to the Dnr web site and ask them they answer in about 1 to 2 days.

Myself I only will use three shells because thats how I interpet the law.

Not legal. Most repeaters will jam if you try to operate them with a floater. CO's will only inquire about floating a shell if you have a gun that will work with a floater & they suspect a fourth shot being fired. To answer the question that's coming - older Benelli's

Older benelli do but is illegal 3 in gun is the law. Just try pleading the 5th it won't work. You will have to try to get your gun back for next season. 3 in gun means more time away from wife!

spring conservation order has never required the use of a plug. i dont want to drop $100 on an extension, so i'll float one if i'm on a jump shoot.
