      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 .

Binoc's and Bow

Recommended Posts

What does everyone do with their binco's when bowhunting? I have always worried about having them around my neck and trying to shoot but today I bought a harness and want to try that. I like the idea of always having them within easy reach. Before, I would always put them in my fanny pack but that can get to be a problem when there are deer close.

Good choice on the harness. I used one for years and then purchased a compact sized pair of glasses that will fit in my pocket.

I also use the four strap shoulder harness which takes the pressure off your neck and keeps the binocs close to the body. No problem when bow hunting.

Hang it on a branch or screw right by my side. Easy to hang on and if I have deer that close I am not usually looking through the binos

I have a large fanny-style pack that I keep my equipment in. I keep all of my "in the stand" stuff in the main top pocket, including binocs, grunt call, rattlin bag, etc. I hang the pack next to my stand on a hook or branch and keep the top pocket open. Personally I just don't like having all my equipment around my neck or in pockets. So I keep everything in a pack next to me. The way I look at it, if I need binocs to see a deer, then it isn't an issue reaching a foot or two to grab the binocs or a grunt call.

If I am using my larger binocs, the crooked horn harness is the ticket.

If I am using my smaller, 10 x 25, then I use a longer strap than usuall and put the strap over my head, on the left shoulder so the binocs are under my right armpit, out of the way yet easily reached. Hope this makes sence cause it is my favorite way to carry them.

Another vote for the harness. THey are very common now. I think mine is cabelas brand.

've been practicing shooting lately with my binos and my rangefinder around my neck. I have one bad eye so my depth perception is poor and I need a rangefinder. I have no problems shooting upright with the RF around my neck. If I had to lean over to make the shot I would probably have to put the RF inside my shirt or something. I haven't hit the glasses yet.

I have and love the harness. I have a set of Nikon Monarchs and the harness holds them tight to my chest when using my bow or my rifle. They are easily accessible and decrease the range of motion required to spot while walking or in the stand.

    • Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.

    • Way to go Don!
    •   thanks!!!  It's on the peg board!!!  I would have forgotten!!!!  
    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

    • Dandy Gobbler Don!
    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
