      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 .

Dont know much bout ol Clark Kent fasteel but have heard various reports from absolute dogsheet to wouldnt shoot nothin else. So my ? is whats every1's opinion of Kent ? I myself primarily stick to feds. ON a sidenote I was somewhat impressed wit BC but $$ will prob keep me from purchasin more .Thats were Kent comes into play as its inexpensive but Im not entirely sold on the product since I've never shot it. Any input is appreciated. Thnx

Pretty much all I shoot as well.... But on a side note I was checked by a C.O. on Pool 7 last year and he pretty much made fun of me for shooting Kent saying I mine as well be shooting blanks... I respectfully disagree with him confused

I shot FastLead this weekend at roosters and a buddy who also shot FastLead had a shell in the box that had about 4 or 5 BB's in it and hardly any powder at all. I put it in my gun and shot it and it made a real quiet "whump" and the wad got stuck in the barrel. Glad I was shooting the over under and could look down the barrel before i loaded it back up or I might have been in trouble. But besides that one shell, I have shot a lot of FastSteel and have been happy with it.

well it seems there ia alot of good to be said . With that being said IS there any downside to these shells? I'll prob. go ut in get a box or 2 n see what i think althogh I'm still skeptical as a few guys @ work have realy slammed Kent,much like that post where the co referred to em as "blanks"

I have not had a dud in the last five or so years, but like everything out their, nothing is perfect I have found that the light load 3.5" 3 shot is stellar get the 1.25oz not the 1-3/8oz the light load is faster

My Benelli hasn't seen a duck or goose load through it besides Kent since I bought it 3 years ago. I've been shooting it about 5 years now at about a case per year and don't plan on shooting anything else.

Anyone ever actually pattern it through their gun?

My BPS doesn't like loads with veolicties over 1500 fps. Very inconsistent patterns. I've put several Kent loads through it. Each gun has it's own preferences when I hear "it's great in the double, autoloader, in the slough, or for pheasants" I really wonder.

I just picked up some 3 1/2" #1's they state 1625 fps. WOW! Sounds good.

Anyone else try these rockets? I can't wait. By the way they were only $17 per box at Joe's on sale...

I shoot 3-4 cases of Fast Steel every fall. It's about the only loads I'll shoot at waterfowl. For the price I think it's the best out there. Federal makes great shells but with the price increases lately sheels get expensive very fast.

I patterned it through my M1-Super 90 and it was very uniform. I also tried Winchesters, which were terrible, and Federal, which was decent but not like Kent.

Support local business - shoot Federal shells. Made in Anoka, MN , USA.

Be ethical. Pattern your shotgun and shoot whatever gives you the most confidence in cleanly killing birds.

Agreed. Most people aren't gonna pattern their guns though. If you don't want to do the research, spend the extra couple bucks to support MN business.

    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
    • Lunch.....fit for a king! Roast beef commercial with left over beef roast. Just thought I'd share. 
    • Maybe I should try something similar. I am hunting alone, but could probably get my neighbor to help. Thanks for the suggestion. Rockin Randy
    • I called Direct yesterday and they offered me a fair price but it was only for 12 months and 12 months at regular price. That was with a 2 year contract. Dish is no contract and 24 months at one price. I asked the lady at Direct if they thought it was better to loose a customer of 35 years or match the competition.. She had no reasonable reply. So,, Hello Dish Network.. And I was on the phone 20 mins. 
    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
