      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 .

ARE YOU GUYS shooting

Recommended Posts

I won't start shooting until August 1st. I will then shoot pretty steady up to the seson and then once a week until the end. This site will idle along until the season approaches and then it will fire up.....

Shot indoors all winter. This will be my first summer without shooting league since I was a kid. (That was a long time ago)

I came home from a hunt in Montana last fall with a bad knee. Walking around the hills of Chilakoot does me no favors. Gotta have the knee in good shape by October so I'm gonna try to be good to it till then.

I've been shooting a little bit, but not as much as I should. Once turkey season is over I will start the process of buying a new bow.

My old bow is still making 6" groups at 40yds. Hopefully I can tighten that up. Also, I purchased some FOB's so thats something I'm looking forward to using also this year.

Been shooting all year, just more outside on walk through courses than inside since its getting nice out. Had a big problem with the bow and had to have her sent back to the factory for engineering to take a look at her. Draw mods were stripping the screws out and shredding the metal. That made a lot of noise. Should be back in 2-4 weeks. Then business will pick up again.

Shot a few arrows a few weeks ago. A little rusty, but not too bad. Hopefully I can get into my shooting routine in a few weeks.

Shoot Straight!

This last weekend I shot an American Fita round.. 20 arrows at each distance 40-50-60yds... at a 122 cm face... it was fun...

An actual FITA round is 40-50-60 meters. Where did you do that? I've always enjoyed the target round.

True DonBo, although I think a true FITA is 50-70Meters?... Thats why I shot the "American 600 Fita round".. they use the exact same target 122cm face... I just shot it in my back yard up at the cabin where you met me... I can shoot out to about 130 yards maybe more..

Just replaced my Biscuit with a new one, put one on daughters bow, and son outgrew his reach on his bow, going to use my old one till growth spurt is done. We got ALOT of tuning before we get into too much practice. On the bright side, just did a camo paint job on our 5yr old's bow, so he's lettin em fly.

I'm actually ashamed to say I haven't taken it out yet. Last year was my first year bow hunting and it was a blast! I need to get it out and get some more practice in.

Heat Checker you say that your son grew out of his bow. My soon to be wife really wants to get into shooting at targets just for fun. I'm looking at an inexpensive starter bow for her. Don't want to put too much $ down on it in case she doesn't like it as much as she thinks. Are you looking at getting rid of it? I'll put a post on the "for sale" section of Archery if you want to respond...thanks.

I bought a Bear Recurve three weeks ago.

What a learning curve.

So I am shooting.

We will see if I develop enough skill to take a White-tailed deer up to 20 yards by fall.

    • I've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
