      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 .

stabilizers

Recommended Posts

hi all, so now days you hear all these bow companies or people for that matter bragging how their bow has no hand shock and are completely quiet. Well if this is the case why do most people put a stabilizer on? Is it for these reasons or more to balance out the bow. i mean do they really help that much for the money? Kind of wondering since i will be purchasing a new bow and debating if i should invest in one. My last bow did not have one but my first one did. O and if you do how do you decide between a short or long style?

definitely get a stabilizer on your bow. the purpose of a stabilizer is to make the bow weight forward (so the bow should be falling forward out of your hand after each shot) you will also need a wrist sling (but these are cheap anyways)

Even if you get a brand new bow with very little shock/vibration a stabilizer will help hold your bow steady- especially when that twelve pointer steps out from the bushes. And it reduces even the small amount of vibration that the new bows produce.

Buy a stabilizer! Even a cheap one, e.g. S-coil, doinker, NAP. You will not regret it.

as the 2 above have stated, get a stabilizer. A stabilizer does many things... It adds weight to the bow, helping to hold more steady. Its absorbs vibration, and levels the bow. The longer the stabilizer, the more it will help you, however the harder it is to deal with in the woods. Thats why if you are ever at archery comp you see some guys with 3' long stabilizers. They really do help.

My hunting stabilizer is 12", do I need it that long.. No, but it helps put the arrow where I want it. It levels my bow perfect and reduces hand shock...

It's all a personal choice. I've shot with and without a stabilizer, and personally I don't like the additional weight. But they definitely help level the bow. Try one and see if you like it.

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
