      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 .

Difficult to see target when looking thru peep sight

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 I was wondering if somebody can help me out by giving me some advice as I am new to archery and don't have any friends who does it.  I have been having extreme issues sighting in my 30 yard and 40 yard pin.  The difficulty lies with me not really able to see my target while I look through my peep sight.  I can't see my target clear enough to align my pin at 30 yards or more to it.  It is just to blurry.  I can see my pin fine but not the target.   I have a Gold Rush 3 pin as my sight on my bow.  

Could it be that my peep sight was installed incorrectly?  Is my peep sight too small for me?    Thanks..

I have perfect vision.  No glasses needed. Last time I got it checked was 2 months ago for my driver license renewal.

I switched from a 1/8 peep to a 1/4 and the difference blew my mind. Now I can see the entire sight picture, where before I could only see my pin through the peep. 

A peeps main objective is to ensure you the same anchor each and every shot. Better to open it up if it helps you with a clearer sight picture.

Remove the peep site and use a kisser button instead to ensure you keep the same anchor point.   If you absolutely want the peep, use a bigger one.    I stopped using a peep years ago and have a simple brass nock which goes to the corner of my mouth when at full draw.

What kind of peep is it? I had problems with my 3 string peep sight when my bow was new I was getting string twist and it was causing the peep to be blocked by the string a little bit.

Make sure also that your draw length is absolutely correct and your peep is placed correctly.  If you are straining or required to change your head/neck to get your eye to the peep, something is wrong and it may screw up.

Try a larger peep, double check your form. Sometimes if my form is off everything else gets messy.

This seems to be my issue all the time!:blush:

Just a thought, have you checked your eye dominance? If you are looking through your off eye that can make a difference at longer yardages....Unfortunately I have this problem and should've been shooting left handed long ago.  Too stubborn to make that change now, so I shoot a larger peep, with a single pin sight, seems to help- Good Luck

I still do it old school.  Have an archery shop put a peep tube on for you. It's a small rubber tube that pulls your peep straight every time. No worries, it's always in the right spot.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
