      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 .

Gun mounts for ice auger holder?

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to find an ice auger holder for the front rack on my ATV. I have found gun mounts for ATV's, will they work OK for ice augers? Thanks for any replies.

Yep, I believe I used the Mad Dog brand mounts. These aren't specific to guns and are just a general purpose yoke-style mount. Guns, shovels, etc. I mounted three on the front rack to hold my Jiffy. They work great.

Mad Dog makes a mount system specifically for ice augers...a great system.

Many guys are just as happy with the gun mount or universal Mad Dog mounts...depending on the application.

They also work well inside a clam shack to secure a auger in transit and can be mounted on the cross seat bar.

Thanks for all the input! I just got back from SW and decided to get the Mad Dog ATV ice auger mount. It looks to be alot more secure than the gun mounts. (mounts on three points instead of two)

Good choice on the Mad Dog auger mount. I bought the gun mounts first and had a hard time keeping the auger head in place. Now the auger mount is flawless. Auger head stays stills even in rough conditions.

I've had good luck with the universal mounts. I strap a bungee over the auger gear case just for good measure, but other than that I leave the auger on the rack when the ATV is pulled down the road on the trailer. It took a few adjustments to get the three mounts where they need to be to hold the Jiffy and it's curved handle, but it sits solid now.

I'm not sure what the auger mount costs but it may be cheaper than buying two sets of two universal mounts which I had to do (need three to hold the auger) as I didn't find the auger mounts when I was making the purchase.
