      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 .

Tred Barta Arrowing Pheasents

Recommended Posts

Last night I was watching th OD Channel and Tred Barta Was pheasant hunting in Colorado. Over 2 days he got 3 with his long bow out of the air. It was really cool to watch. I am excited to do some pheasant hunting with the dog this fall.

I'd like to see him arrow a WILD pheasant off of public land in Minnesota, that would be a true accomplishment when you may only get a crack at 5 or 6 birds a day, if that. I'm pretty sure he was hunting a game farm (many short-tailed birds), some of the roosters did take off fairly fast though. Tred, if you're reading this, I'll take you out onto public land in Minnesota, and if you take one with the longbow, I'll wash your truck, just like Dan did!

Very true Norsky, He was complaining when the birds weren't sitting tight on the second day after the snow fell. Those public land birds can get very wild, especially late season.

I think tred is an idot. I really dont understand that man at all. That was some amazing shooting, but really when you looked at the one it wasnt a clean kill at all. I think we should all stick to our guns, at least its a little more ethical.

SO your saying when you wound a bird and knock it down, but he runs off into the cover, and doesn't die that that is more ethical? ALot of birds you shoot you end up wringing the necks of anyways so theres really no difference.I'm not trying to stand up for tred, but i'm just pointing out facts.

I love Treds philosophy of going back to basics. For me hunting is about the juxtaposition of modern man in nature. It's better for me with less. I like nature to win more than I like to be comfortable.

I pefer to sit on a hillside overlooking a draw than to make a heated, insulated, deer stand taj mahal. I prefer to fish from an old wooden boat than worry about the payments and doing damage to a boat that costs as much as my first house.

I don't think it is justifying my simple life either or rationalizing settling for less. I know it isn't for Tred.

I just like a hunting camp with no electricity and a flickering gas lamp better than a hotel room.

Driving down the highway a deer stand made from ash with a simple gaurd rail made from saplings cut from a shooting lane always brings back warm feelings of hunts long past, where a plywood sided-shag carpeted fort with a propane heater always screams neighbor problems to me, and at the very least, admits defeat or denial of the sole purpose, which is to forget about the trials of your everyday life and return to nature.

If I wanted to build I'd finish the basement at home. If I simply wanted a pheasant for dinner I'd order it.

That's why Treds approach speaks to me. Yeah you might wound a bird or two but if you cant cope with that you're surely not going to get the hunting experience on its' base level anyway.

Just some thoughts on going primitive,Hans

But the guy seems to be on speed or something when he's out there. Just a few bubbles off level to join my crew.

well he does like he says "the hard way". I was practicing last night with my long bow and flu flu's and aerial targets. There is something special when you build your own longbow, string and arrows. and I think he does take some long shoots but the training wheel guys take them all the time.

Oh yeah, He also has the best theme song in the outdoor kingdome. "Barta your the man" either that or Gold, Gold,Gold,Fever,Fever,Fever.

Just laughing to my self thinking of both those songs. The Nuge is out there too.Hans

Tred is a joke did you see the show where he killed a wild pig with a knife. The pig was restrained when he stuck it. Going back to the basics my a**

I have stuck a hog with a knife and it was restrained, by a dog. Believe you me, didn't make it any less a hunt. At 1am in the morning in the middle of South Texas nowhere chasing bay dogs who have tracked down a wild hog with up to 4 inch teeth... I wouldn't think of going anywhere near it without a strike dog holding its legs. I about filled my pants but stuck a nice hog (113lbs)and it tasted great, now my friends who live down there have stuck many over 400lbs, and that is unbelievable to me. I am not defending Tred, but if that is the type of hunt he was on, so be it. This thread was simply started about him long bow hunting upland birds, which if you have ever seen anyone try, is quite impressive. Shooting flu flu arrows is a trick all in it's own.

I'm on the Tred is a joke bandwagon myself. Did you see the one where he is lauching arrows at Caribou............He didn't have a chance at a ethical kill. he was blindly lauching away!!

Or how about the time he took a leak in his chest waders because he claimed it would cause him to lose to much body heat in the cold weather to drop them down. I don't care how cold it is, I'm not [PoorWordUsage] in my boots!!

The guy is a joke who thinks way too much of himself.

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
    • SG is a 2013 with about 4K miles on it.
