      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 .

New Arrows?

Recommended Posts

I have a whisker bisquit style rest and I need to buy some new arrows. How should I have the vanes set? Left-helical, right-helical, etc.....?

I would choose a arrow with a nice smooth finish. Like Beman ICS hunters or Easton Axis (non camo versions). The smooth finish is quietest through the bisquet. Arrows with a finish like some Carbon Express arrows and Gold Tip arrows tend to make a little bit of noise on the draw. Like a mild screeching sound.

I've used helical, and offset and shoot blazer vanes and have never had a problem with wear. Most say to use an offset rather than helical however I've never had an issue with helical.

I shot a dozen Easton ST Epic's (another smooth arrow) with Helical fletched blazers for 2 seasons and never had a bit of wear. Just busted arrows from shooting too many groups! wink

Good luck.

No Offense man, but I'd buy a drop away and then you dont have anything to worry about. Not trying to be a jerk or nothing but if you think about the concept of the whisker biscut it stinks because the arrow has constant contact with the rest all the way to the nock so if you grab or torque your bow in the even the slightest little bit your arrow is off its mark and that could mean a wounded deer or whatever you hunt. There are a couple of options out there for you one is the new trophy taker full capture rest and then there is the ripcord and these are both dropaways. I shoot weekly with a group and there are 2 people in the group and they both use a whisker biscuit and neither of them can shoot consistently like the rest of us can with a dropaway rest. Just food for thought I also realize that some people cant just go out and buy new stuff for your bow, but I also can guarantee one thing you would not regret buying one thats for sure.

Hey thats fine. I know I need to get a dropaway rest. Accually, it is not a whisker bisquit, its a hostage rest by bowtech, but the same idea. Anyways thanks for the info!

    • BBD!  More to come...
    • Bought from private seller; my mistake should have been one thing to check; there is no wiggling it at all, it’s frozen in there tried torching it to no avail; put everything back together hoping I could grease and crank up and down but the zerk keeps coming off, and now it doesn’t lower at all; will have to bite the bar and bring it in
    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker!
