      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 .

Slinging arrows during slug season.

Recommended Posts

All my buddys leave the woods during slug season. Just wondering how many other guys work the woods with there sticks and string during slug season. Its my favorite time of year to bow hunt and now I got slug hunters pushing the deer around. They have this thing about having to wear blaze orange. Plus all the other hunters out in the woods wears on there nerves. It deosn't bug me how about you guys.

I love to bowhunt more than gun hunting deer, but I gun hunt during the gun season. Kinda fun and a change of pace!

Plus, why bring a knife to a gun fight?

I usually head over to WI during MN gun season, and vice versa... I like being safe, and dont like wearing orange.. LOL
Heh? I can see that from your avatar Deitz or is that red? Seems orangeish red on my computer though. I hunt with the bow during firearms behind my house during the slug season and make it over to Wisc. if I have free time. One of the best times to be in the woods in my opinion as the deer get pushed and move all day long.

Well said.

I used to bow hunt during the rifle season. Then I started to shoot handguns. Now I hunt the rifle season, in my best bow stand, with a handgun. Mabe this year I will actualy shoot one. grin

I am just happy to be deer hunting. I started out a rifle hunter, switched to being a bowhunter (longer season and much warmer), and now do both. I am not going to give anyone else a hard time for how they hunt either.

Whatever you do, you have to own it. If you want to bowhunt durring the rifle season, or the muzzle loader season, or the baby seal season who cares. Get out your orange, join the orange army and go hunting.

Just go sit in a stand where the neighbors land buts up to yours and wait and better yet if you have public land butting up to yours. Most of the deer are going to head where there less shots being fired.

I was actually thinking about starting a topic on this subject!!

Here's my dilemma. I mostly bowhunt but during the shotgun season in (the old) zone 4 I'd slug hunt with relatives, it was kind of fun, and the deer drives are always fun, they get your heart pumping, then I'd go back to bowhunting on the week in between the two slug seasons, the deer calm down after a couple of days and the bucks are really moving by that Thursday and Friday. I've even been known to sit with my bow on the second Sat of slug hunting.

Now this year, with the new 9 day straight season, I can take either my gun or bow. As one of the earlier posters said, why take a knife to a gun fight? What if that 14 point walks by at 50 yards and I only have a bow in my hands? But I'd be a LOT happier shooting that big buck with my bow!!! Decisions, decisions!!!

This nine day season also throws a wrench into some of the spots I bowhunt, I hate going on public land when slug hunters are out there, too many crazies, and too easier to encounter a red coat sitting on the same fence line that you are, facing you at 100 yards as the sun comes up!!!
