      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 .

Carbon express terminators, Beman Ics hunters, and Gold tips are all very good arrows in that price range.

Incidently I went for very expensive arrows this year. I got the Carbon Express Aramid KV. They cost about $170 per dozen. I can live with that if they last a long time but like a moron I shot a group on Thursday and got a robinhood at 50 yards. grin $34 down the drain. mad

Ted- check out the Cabelas stalker extremes. $60 a dozen for carbon arrows. I shoot the weight and draw length as you, and I'm more than accurate enough with the cabelas arrows.

Several different models in the Carbon Express line to fill your needs. Weight forward technology can't be beat for keeping those broadheads flying straight.

I second the Cabelas carbon arrows. Look at the specs and they are made better than I can shoot to know a difference. To me they shoot the same as the big buck maxima hunters I bought before..(not again) The Archery guy at Cabelas said they are made by I think it was Easton. good specs carbon, pre-fletched with blazer vanes for about $60 a dozen to me it a no brainer. The only negative is getting them. This Sat. morning I made a special trip to get some and they are sold out. I was really annoyed by that and asked the sales rep. how you can be sold out on sat morning. he blamed it on the game fair and said he was more upset than I was because he will have to explain it to over 50 more guys just like me before the end of the day. so I guess they are pretty popular. I know one thing it sure stings a lot less when you lose one.

I've been shooting Beman's for 5 years now and they shoot great for me. I bought 2 dozen when they were on sale and still have 14 left but once they run out I might try the Cabela's. The specs are so close on all the carbon arrows that I think only a tournament archer could tell the difference.

As you can tell by my username I shoot Goldtips and I am continuing to but not the high buck ones instead I found a dozen fletched for 50 bucks on www.keysonecountrystore.com they are called Vapor Hunters and are now made by Goldtip I just got my dozen and they shoot and pattern awesome.

I have heard lots and lots and lots of good things about gold tip.

Goldtip- I'm not sure if it's the wording or not-did somebody else make the vapor hunters before goldtip?

If I sell my bow at the end of the season again I might sell the arrows with it and go with the goldtips for next year.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
