      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 .

Alpine Soft Loc Quiver??

Recommended Posts

I just bought one of these quivers, the 5 arrow holder. I like it so far, it quieted my bow down, the old Bohning quiver was too noisy. My question is with arrows with broadheads. The part of the quiver that covers up the broadhead came with two rubber inserts, one thick and one thin. I could use the thick one and use an old broadhead to 'slice' grooves for the broadheads into the insert or I could use the thin one and the broadheads would just be covered with the quiver. What do you think? I never have been a fan of repeatly sticking the broadheads into the quiver inserts, possibly dulling the broadhead. The arrows would still be held in two spots on the quiver, and the broadheads would be covered with the enclosed part of the quiver. If you have an Alpine quiver, how did you do it?

I also just bought the softloc-5. I took out the thick liner to see how it would hold my rage 2blade and although it holds fine I find that with the thick insert out of the hood that I bang the broadheads on the plastic pulling it out. Not a big deal unless you're hoping for a follow up shot.

I cut grooves for the broadheads and use both pieces of foam as recommended on the box.

I have the same quiver and took out the thick foam, there is no need for it as the quiver holds the arrows in 2 places, and the plactic covers the broadheads. I will not put my broadheads into foam, but that is just me.

Thats exactly what I was thinking, without the thick foam the arrow would still be held in two places and the broadhead would be protected by the plastic, and you wouldn't be dulling the broadheads by repeatedly sticking it into the foam. When its dark out, and you're putting your arrow away, you're not alwasy going to hit the spot you've grooved out.

I don't know why you wouldn't hit the spot you've grooved out. The places to hold the arrows hold that arrow tight which means thay fit exactly the same spot. They only thing you might do is not line the blades up the same way every time.

The reason they give you both is the thin one is for expandables and the thick is for fixed blade. If you push expandables into the foam some will open. Mathews also has two but the one for expandables has round holes cut into the thick foam.

I Googled the Alpine Archery HSOforum. They still make them and it looks like they have improved them to boot.

Mine is just a bow mount with a screw through the center.

The improved screw on type is compact and they also have a model to attach to your treestand.

The big C-store is a dealer, but you might find a closer one if you click on "find a dealer" on the HSOforum.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
