      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 .

Arrow wraps or lighted nock and if so which brand do you like?

Recommended Posts

I shot lumenoks 2 years ago and the thing never lit up at crunch time and since then have no longer used them, But since then started using crests or wraps and was thinking about trying the tracer nocks instead I would like some first hand stories on this subject please.

Lumenoks for the past 3 years. I love them and only had issues with them once. One needs to have the piece on the end set just right or they will not work or light up. I had to play around with them for awhile before I had them figured out. Nothing better than these for finding ones arrow after the shot late in the evening.

Lumenocks do work great. Truth be told I like the look of any arrow going through a deer lighted or not. Why I shoot them and will continue to is because I have on a couple of occasions lost arrows after being shot and yeah $20 down the drain hurts, but you also have a saftey issue with three rasors sitting on the ground. Anyone who decides to get lumenocks make sure you shoot them often before hunting because they are a little heavier than a standard nock and will affect flight. This next month can't go fast enough.

I like the Luminoc's as well, But I dont use them the way I did a couple of years ago. I use a cat quiver, so I had to keep the lumi's in my pocket so I they wouldnt turn on and eventualy they went missing mad. I got sick of paying for replacements.

Now its white caps with white barred feathers and a clear "glow" over the caps of a few of them. Pair that with green noc's and visibility is not that much of an issue.

    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing. 
    • Reinhardt's skin was about as thick as sausage casing, it was after Obama got re-elected and the realization that he couldn't howl from his deer stand after Romney's victory. That's when he left, so it's been a while. He was a good dude with a lot of experience in a variety of things. A lot of folks are missed around these parts.  
    • Yeah, I think the first time was after too many people made fun of Michelle Bachmann.  Too bad. He had some great old school knowledge of sausages and butchering in general. 
    • I thought he just got mad and took his ball and went home? Didn't he do that at least a time or 2? I do miss Reinhardt though....
    • Check his web sight which caused him to get expelled from HSO many moons ago.... It has all his recipes and info on it.   www dot sausage heaven outdoors dot com   with a http:// and some deleted spaces you will be golden. 
    • Not sure with Hyundai, but Ford has a backup slot if the key fails to work wirelessly. A good reading of that owners manual will tell you.
    • uggh that has to be a brutal day of work thinking if it is dead or not!  Good luck tomorrow!!
