      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 .

I have been very impressed so far. I have yet to put an arrow through a deer, but I hope to change that soon. I got black ones first, and re-ordered lime green and also ordered glow in the dark stickers for them.

I still cant get over how they look, but they fly very nice.

I can't imagine that they would work with every setup. I had never heard of them so I went to their HSOforum, sounds like a great idea, but what happens to guys like me who shoot a whisker biscuit? I would think that the thing would fall off just like they demonstrated in one of the videos on a pass through.

There are still people using those biscuit things huh. Just kidding of course, you need to have a drop away style rest and not all of those work because it does require a fair amount of clearance. They shoot well and I think they would work great for hunting. Good luck and I want to hear what your opinion is when you get a chance to shoot them.

Guess I'll just stick to my AAE fletching then. I wouldn't trade that wisker biscuit for any other kind of rest. I think that it has helped my shooting.

I've got some too and they shoot great. I won't be hunting with them this fall, but I plan on using them in the spring for turkeys and hopefully next year I will have separate arrows dedicated to Fob'n

Shot My fobs today, They seem to be shooting well, One thing I noticed when shooting broadheads they actually twist into the target, you can feel it when you pull it out, much more than with the vanes I was shooting. Grouped 2 tight enough to pop one of the Fobs off kinda cool to watch those things just pop off like that. We will see, going to shoot some more with them before I make the all out change but so far so good.

Goodnews! I got them today! Man they are small. I already have 4 of them set up and will be going right to the field today after work to try them out.

One thing about the cust. service at StarrFlight, they are sure quick to reply to emails. It is nice to answers to questions from companies that quickly. A breath of fresh air as they say.

I hope I get the same grouping "problem" ac777

    • There is at least double the number to the left side They roost 150 yards from where my blind is 123 congrats on the bird
    • The whole flock skirted me this morning, never coming closer than 100 yds.  Stayed in the landowners back yard all morning before heading to parts unknown. Counted 7 longbeards in the bunch. Headed back now. I'm sure my blind will be surrounded when I get there. Good luck guys.
    • Holy Moses how far is that from where you are hunting? There's more strutters in that picture than I see in five years.
    •   I think they're going to be late this year
    • Well they were all n the other side of the brook and they come over to my side often, but not this morning. I wanted to check so I drove over there. Haha I was right dirty birds and the property owner does not anyone hunt there.  Maybe tomorrow I can sweet talk one of them to come over. I think a lot of hunters are waiting for later seasons. I checked a couple public land spots and no people tracks or truck tracks. 
    • lots of gobbling this morning.  Birds seem to be staying in fairly tight area of woods so far this morning. They are near, but I cant seem to talk the hens over.  Had a nice hollering match earlier, was fun, though not productive. 3 Jakes came onto my lone upright hen decoy about 8am.  They turned out to be my test birds.  First year with the bow so,  tested what I could get away with, drawing the bow.  They didnt like it!  Birds stiĺl talking here.
    • Besides the gobbles i heard in the morning nothing is moving out here! Besides 11 deer pheasant and a coyote that was 10 yard out from getting one in his boilwrmaker! 
    • my first Harley was a 1971 SG...  first year made, wish I still had it!!!
    • Get 'er done MM. Keep us posted.
