      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 .

Pendulum Bow Sight

Recommended Posts

I have always hunted with a Pendulum sight i like it because i dont have to think about ranges or angles at all. What do you guys think of them? More accurate or just as as a fixed pin sight. I guess i just wanted to see others opinions, i dont even see them sold any place anymore.

I have used every type sight out there on the market and for me, I will continue to use a pendulum for hunting from a tree.

There are very few archers that use them and I have wondered for years why more don't. One cannot beat them for shooting from a elevated stand or tree.

I honestly haven't seen a difference when shooting from a tree. My dad had his work lift thing home one day and we raised it to the max-25-26ft and shot from 10-50yds, I hit right where I would have on the ground. The biggest thing is that you need to bend at the waist. It's when you drop your arm and don't bend you tend to shot high. I was always worried about that to. I have shot a couple deer each year the last few and all have been 20ft+ and within 25yds. I hit where i put it.

I almost picked one up last year but I hunt in a few swamps where I can't climb a tree so I like to be versitile as possible. Someone please correct me if I am wrong but they only work from an elevated position.

You are very wrong, when i pratice on the ground im still pretty dead on not sure how much more accurate i would be for like target shooting if i had a fixed, thats on thing i was wondering but you can shoot on flat ground just fine at least i do.

They work fine on the flat ground, it just doesn't swing down, it hangs exactly the way a fixed site would. Do you need one? absolutely not. Do I love mine & would I buy it again in a heart beat? Yes.

Thanks for the info. All pendulums I have seen only have one pin, do they make them with more pins? Granted you can shoot further with one pin these day but that would seem to limit your distance/accuracy while shooting from the ground.

Which brand of pendulum sight are you using and how do you sight it in? Do you have to shoot from an elevated position or can you sight it in on the ground?

Sorry it took so long to get back. But I use standard pins, and a whisker biscuit. I haven't needed to adjust anything when shooting from a tree, just bend at the waist and don't do anything different as you do on the ground.

    •   Didn't say you would.    
    • Lol Leech-I don’t remember saying I was going to block the driveway with logs or wire. They will begin hitting the 4x4’s beneath there that have been there to keep cars from driving on the grass. Not my deal. I was only looking for some guidance on if I’m overreacting or if there should be som me]angers employee. So, ya, like everything else, it’s a lack of manners and I’m not crazy...yet. 
    • Just had a call with the builder and the concrete guy I am working with. Neither said they would "waste" concrete on thickening the edge unless there were plans to add on to the structure at a later date. The builder said no amount of concrete on the edge will help the building stability. He says if it moves its his fault in building it. There will be no weight on the outside edge of the building, worst thing that could happen would be erosion outside the building.
    • Had looked into the panels and they pretty much doubled the initial cost of the structure. I could spry foam the entire wall cavity for less $ and have close to the same thing.
    • Most of the moving on restrictor plates is done by changing the air flow around the car being passed with no or very little contact.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
    • Tip ups outside the house are fine because you can visually see them which means you are attending to those lines.  A line left down in your house while you go to a buddies house can't be seen. If you can't see them you can't attend to them when needed.  A CO also has no idea how long you were gone, were the lines unattended for 5 minutes or 5 hours?   If you have some sort of system set up so that you can monitor the lines remotely then you've entered a gray area and would probably be up to the CO's discretion.  You can email the DNR and ask but I'm guessing whether you get a ticket or not would be determined by which CO finds you and what kind of mood he's in that day.  If you did choose to take the ticket to court I'd think you'd have a reasonable case to present.  The judge would have to determine if being able to monitor your lines on a baby monitor satisfies the law. Personally I think it would but who knows what a judge or CO would think. 
    • Sounds like event was well attended all 3 days just over 28k total.   we went on Friday and had a great time participating in the bird dog parade. Scored some deals on some dog stuff and even got some nice freebies.   hope it makes it back to SD again. Next year is in Schaumburg Illinois so probably won’t attend. 
    • Battled the winds yesterday but fishing was excellent. Couldn’t find the big perch but managed to get a limit of eyes here in South Dakota
