      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

top 10 calibers

Recommended Posts

The July 2008 issue of American hunter had a list of the top 10 calibers of all time. I thought it might be interesting if everyone came up with their top 10 of all time, and why.

AH top 10:

1. .308 win.

2. .22 LR

3. .30-06 springfield

4. .375 H&H

5. .300 Win Mag

6. .223 Rem

7. .270 Win

8. .257 Weatherby Mag

9. .416 Rigby

10. .338 Win Mag

Grand Champ: 12 gauge


1. 12 gauge- What else can you shoot anything from a dove to a grizzley, and then keep it for home defense?

2. .22 Long Rifle- For plinking and small game, what's cheaper and more enjoyable? Besides, how many people haven't at least shot one?

3. .30-06 Springfield- Good for everything you want to persue in North America, plus good on most game across the world. With the excpetion of the biggest stuff, any shortcomming in on the shooter.

4. .223 Remington- From varmits to deer, what's mre fun to shoot other than the .22 LR, plus it's cheap.

5. .270 Winchester- any questions, read anything written by Jack O'Connor.

6. .30-30 Winchester- Which caliber says deer hunting better than the classic .30-30?

7..375 H&H Magnum- what caliber screams Africa like the .375? It'll bring down anything you want in Africa, not to mention North America.

8. .308 Winchester- Accurate, powerful, cheap, and easily accessable.

9. .243 Winchester- The beginner's gun. Plus, it's versatile on anything from prairie dogs to big mulies.

10. .416 Rigby- What says "insurance" for the big stuff in Alaska and Africa better than the .416?

I wonder what was their criteria for determining the top 10? Seems like this would be a matter of opinion.
