      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 to goose hunting

Recommended Posts

Never hunted geese before. Won a new shotgun at a banquet this winter that I want to use. It is a BPS that was supposed to be a turkey gun but has a 28" barrel. It also has a super full turkey choke that I know has to go. My question is, what choke do I get for this gun and what do I use for shells?

The range you are going to be shooting most of your geese at will determine the choke you need. I would suggest modified or improved modified if you're hunting decoys and occasionally pass shooting. 3" BBB, BB, 1, or 2 shot are your best bets for shot size, and I would recommend patterning your gun and choke with various brands of shells until you find the best combination.

Don I use a full choke and a modified choke, mine are fixed so I have 2 guns. My full choke is on a 30" barrel and my modified is on a 28" barrel, both have taken their share of ducks and geese. I shoot for geese 3" BB and will use 2 shot as well and for ducks I use 2 shot

I have had really good luck with improved modified(carlson). I have not bought a box of shells bigger than 2's for a long time. found some 3.5" 3's 1*1/8 oz of charge a couple years ago that puts a major hurt on geese and ducks. 1650 FPS made by kent

Thanks for the advice. Got an improved/modified choke tube and a box of 3" steel BB. Pretty excited about knocking down some of those big birds!
