      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 .

Technically that's it. You need a fullbody harness, flashlight and a whistle. Having a cell phone with your coordinators number can be helpful.

Make sure you bring your parking permit if you need it. Have at least 1 bonus permit for those does.

I'd say bring something to do. I did the Poplar Lake hunt last weekend and it was hot, slow, and buggy with minimal deer movement. Thank goodness I had my Blackberry to surf the web with otherwise I think I may have gone crazy.

Types of stands are usually dependent on the hunt itself. However, I think climbing stands/sticks are permitted in all of the hunts.

Some of the hunts don't allow screw in steps.

Climbers are perfectly fine. What can be difficult is pruning branches. The hardest part about climbers is finding the right tree and the do not want you pruning branches on desirable trees.

I know many people who have used climbers on MBRB hunts. THe problem is getting a good spot.

I've used climbing stands on two different MBRB hunts. I hate using my hang on as I don't feel safe getting in it, sitting on it, or getting out. I'll use it if I have to, but I never really want to.

I love my hang on. I think about getting a climber every year but so far I haven't had the urge.

The Lone Wolf alpha can use two straps and its solid as it comes. I won't use a chain stand or a "tree hook" setup ever.

I have a question about metro bow hunting. If I buy my archery deer license, I can take either a doe or buck correct. Lets say I take a doe. Can I buy a bonus permit for the metro and then use that to take a buck? Or do I have to buy an extra bonus permit first for the doe, saving the original archery license for the buck? Thanks

I believe the only one you can use for a buck is your MAIN LICENSE bonuses can only be used for does.

If you use up your main license for a DOE you cant take a buck i hope one of the more experienced hunters here clears it up

Most of the Metro hunts I've been on require you to have additional bonus tags before the hunt. The idea is to remove deer. A quality hunt is not really their objective.

    • I was out last nite----7 inches of ice
    • Man wouldn't I love to have a nice F100!   Years ago had a PU from Ford with that rock solid, dependable straight six! What a piece of work. I traded if off and the fella I traded it to did the same and it went through a bunch of owners. And the last time I saw the carcass of the thing it rigged to big saw (24" blade) and was being used to cut firewood and slabs for cabins. Hell, it may still be running!!
    • Just enough ice to get away from the in-laws.  
    • Have you tied it using low power? 
    • The proview is a POS. To start off..you can't control the cone angle for dump. Turning the gain up to get a wider cone angle makes the lure signal and other signals huge blobs. Even when the gain is turned to the lowest setting, the proview never narrows to a 9*

      So in shallow water when a guy wants a wide bean and sharp signal returns the proview is a blobby POS. Because the gain needs to be high to get the wider beam.

      In 30ft of water where you want a narrow beam to keep your buddies lure off your display the proview never gets narrow enough turned all the way down.

      With a tri beam you can fine tune everything 1,000% better. 

      I had a unit with a tri beam next to a unit with the pro view.........that night we were sending the pro view in for an exchange to get the tri beam
    • This is very cool! After seeing your post I did some research online and it all looks very simple. The one I saw just used window screens layer with some separation between with a sheet of plexiglass covering it all.    I always thought making a windmill with an old 80s chevy alternator would work pretty slick to keep a battery charged in a hard sided house. It seems like there is always wind but not always sun. It would definitely be nice to come out to the house and have it warm.
    • Well it probably wouldn't hook up to the old Ford F100 anyway.
    • I am puzzled by this fascination with push button starting in vehicles.  What is the advantage over time tested and simple metal key? Why would I want to add one more 'doo-dad" to my trucks  electric system that complicates things? Seems to me the push button start  feature is mainly offered to trap young drivers into thinking it is something new and "totally cool".  It has been around for a long time but why the big fuss now. Can somebody explain it to an old fashioned key user?
