      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.

DonBo....this new 'weight forward' technology advertising has been cracking me up. You don't have to spend big bucks on arrows, just use 125 grain broadheads.

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.

Gold tips are great arrows, but I don't think they are in his price range of $60-$70.

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.

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!  
    • Yeah baby!!!  Huge congrats to both of you.  Look at that smile!  Great work dad and great work son!!!
    • On Saturday my boy got his first crack at a bird.  We walked in and had nothing close, but must have been in their way to whatever they were going to.  An hour later and he had his first turkey. 18.3 lb. 1/2 inch spurs 9 3/4 inch beard  HUGE smiles Proud dad   The bird gave us a heck of a show and came within a step of brushing the blind.   We also made it back to cook up Maple Syrup with the rest of the crew at thew cabin.
    • Well hopefully today is the last of the Fernando Rodney experiment.
