      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 .

Anyone ever shoot a kicks choke tube? What did you think?

For those of you who are not familiar with this choke, its patternmasters main competitor. The duck commander shoots a kicks high flyer.

I know patternmaster makes a great choke tube but I really haven't heard a whole lot about kicks. As far as what the duck commander shoots here's my comment: He gets paid to endorse products! I'm sure it's a good tube but if you are basing your purchace on the fact that some tv hunter/personality is using it then their advertising program is apparently working. I'm not busting on you I'm just saying don't buy just because mr. X uses it on tv.

Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to do some research on kicks choke tubes. grin

how do you think the patternmaster choke tube came to be well known? Because some "mr. X" used it on tv and promoted it! If you dont know anything about a kicks choke tubes, then why reply? why would you say something like that, then follow it with a " Im not busting on you"? I have been hunting my whole life, and as a experienced professional western big game guide, I do alot of product reccommendations for clients and friends. At this point in my career/life I would hope I wouldnt purchase something or suggest someone to do so simply because some yoo-whoo on tv uses it. Hense the reason for my post. Its usually not a good idea to assume people are naive.

i bought a extended range kicks choke last spring and i like it alot. i have shot alot of clay piegons with it and live pigeons with it and it dusts them pretty good. and i never knew the duck commanders use kick's. a buddy of mine told me about it and how nice they were.

No need to get your panties in a bunch.

You asked a question that involved patternmaster, which I am familiar with so I replied.

If I thought you were naive I would have said "don't be so naive".

Maybe I mistook the tone of your question because it sounded like the duck commander using it was a major selling point. As a professional western big game guide I'm sure you've seen hunters come along with products that were touted by celeb hunters and wondered why they bought it. That's where I was coming from. I WASN'T BUSTING ON YOU!!!

Hence the reason for my reply.

I have had the kicks extended range, patternmaster extended,and also a Drake Killer for both my SBE2 and Xtrema.Patternmaster seemed picky on what shells you used. sucked if some others went on sale and they didnt pattern well. Then i went to the kicks. Very nice choke for the money. not at all picky as to what shell you are using either. Like others have stated it will smoke the clays and birds. I then did further looking into chokes. Found the Drake Killer. this choke is unbelievable. It is made specifically for your barrel. And when you get one you will know the difference right away. have had mine for one goose and one snow goose season and needless to say there are alot more birds in the freezer. Alot less cripples

    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!  
    • Who was looking for .22 shorts on here??? Someone was......Bobby Bass?
    • Hmmm...poor customer service. Shoulda offered to show her a pic of yer pride and joy instead.   
    • Actually this reminds me of a time many years ago when I worked at the local grocery store. We had a sign in front of the ALL laundry detergent with a special sale price. A lady brought up a bottle of Tide detergent and expected it to be the sale price because the sign said ALL detergent. When I explained to her that it was the specific name brand ALL that was on sale and not the "global ALL" (as Del might put it) she got so embarrassed and angry that as she stormed out of the store she insisted it would have made a difference if we would have underlined the word ALL. 
    • A friend cleaned out a relative's house and gave me some ammo, some of which I can't use. Looking for reasonable offers on any of the following. I am in Inver Grove Heights. PM me if interested. 6 boxes 20 gauge Federal 2 3/4" duck/pheasant shells, 5 boxes are #6 shot, 1 box #4 shot 9 50 round boxes .22 short plus 3 partial boxes 9 50 round boxes  .22 long (not long rifle) plus 1 partial box 44 rounds .38 special lead, plus 43 rounds .38 special lead hollow point
    • LOL! Literally just a couple days ago you (Delcecchi) and Leech made the rule that someone shouldn't include you in a conversation that you aren't already engaged in and now you (Delcecchi) are butthurt that you (Delcecchi) weren't included in my statement in a thread you (Delcecchi) had yet to be engaged in. You can't make this stuff up.
    • OK, whatever..  Maybe a qualifier if it is not the global "we"
