      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 .

12 guage or 20

Recommended Posts

The only slug gun I ever used was a 20 gauge, I used it for years and shot a number of deer with it. The 12 gauge guns I had at the time were not as good with slugs as my 20 was. Been quite a while since I slug hunted though, now all my hunting is in rifle zones.

We can use rifles up here so that's what we do, but I have had a couple of hunters bring 12 ga. with slugs and knock down a couple of deer. I don't know why you would use a 20 when you can use a 12?

Any thoughts.

I've used both. Personally, I like using 12 ga solely for the greater knock down power. Where I hunt rarely do I take a shot over 50 yards. However, I feel the 20 ga provides better accuracy. I've passed taking longer shots with my 12 that I would have no problem taking if I had a 20. While the 12 packs a bigger punch, we all know that shot placement is the key.

Most of the kids that hunt with us use a 20 ga. Pretty much cuz they are lighter to carry and don't pack the shoulder whollup of a 12. One of the kids is so tiny she has to run around in the shower to get wet. A 12 ga would knock her over.

I shoot a 12 ga but I prefer my bow.

The 12 definitely has a kick when sighting in. However, I never seem to notice it when I'm shooting at a deer. My Mathews is much quieter and has less kick! smile

nice photo archery.

My wife doesnt have a choose, she has to shoot a 20 gauge becuase here arms are so short that she would never be able to hold a 12 up and shoot it at the same time wihtout falling on here butt.

Bass & Spear,

Thanks.

BTW you may want to consider shortening the stock if she'd like to shoot a 12ga. My gun fit fine without too many clothes but on cold mornings it was tough to shoulder. I really like my Rem 1100 better since I shortend the stock.

only been a few moose I shot over the years where I dropped them in their tracks and one of them was taken with a 12 ga. slug at about 30 yards. Oh yeah my Mathews worked good on moose back in '96 but it ran a little further.
