      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 .

Does anyone have the new Moutrie 4.0 IR? From what ive read on [YouNeedAuthorization].com these were VERY good last year but took a dive in quality this year. The trigger time about doubled. Just wondering what you guys have seen? Im looking at buying 3 in the next week so any input is greatly appreciated!

I dont know the operation of buttons on your trail camera but for placement. Have it 4-5 ft off the ground with a slight angle down. i use a stick off the ground and wedge it between the top of the camera and the tree. if it is on a trail angle it down the trail not perpendicular. I've had the best results with a mineral lick in front of mine. the bucks love the mineral lick until they shed their velvet. hope this helps you out.

That would be shame, I got a couple last year and am very happy with them. Fast triger and great battery life. I would also be interested in any input on the newer models. If I were you I would go to HSOList and see if you find last year models. they are worht the $199

Cory's right, distance and height set up are themost common mistakes. I have the Moultrie 4 w/out IR flash and they work very well for me.

How far away from a salt lick or the trail do you usually set up? I put a salt lick on the opposite side of the trail and set the camera up angling towards the lick and down the trail. The camera is probably 10-15 yrds away from the lick. Too close? Too far?

Thanks!

My moultrie has the laser aim feature and when i set mine up i always stand about 15 feet from the camera and put the laster right on the button on my jeans. Thats what i have found to work best.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
