      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 was watching this show for a bit tonight and saw that draw loc thing on his bow, my quetions i understand for people who are unable to draw because of a disability but does this guy need it? I guess i dont know his bio besides hes a old boxer or something but if hes fine isnt that a bunch of bull for him to use it? I dont know i guess thats just my opinion what is yours?

All that device does is turn a regular compound into a crossbow. If the guy ruin his shoulder from boxing and cannot physically hold the bow back than fine I'll let that go but if not thats just a lazy way out. Just like baiting.

So what's the protocol for the crossbow permit, just get a doctor's note and they DNR signs off, or does the DNR do more of their own checking, more of a review? Lcornice, if you're listening? I'm not looking to get one, just wondering how its determined.

Also, what's the likelihood the DNR will continue to allow crossbows during gun season? Now that there's a longer season in our zone, I've thought about trying one where I wouldn't gun hunt for safety reasons but that I still bowhunt. Though I wouldn't want to give up bowhunting, I wouldn't mind trying one out. Perhaps it would be kinds fun. I also don't want to drop $400 on one, though and then not be able to use it if the DNR stops allowing the during gun season all of a sudden.

Had to register just so I could throw my 2 cents in on this one.

I actually hunted with this guy on a guided Alberta bear hunt. The outfitter was the late Harvey Mcnalley of Poplar Ridge Outfitters. (In case there's any fact checkers out there) He made every one of us shoot his Drawloc bow and the thing was a disaster, heaviest bow I've ever picked up, and to shoot it accurately, you had to pull with your bow arm and push with the release hand. Completely opposite of normal form.

He proceded to wound 3 bears on that trip and didn't recover any of them.

My friends and I ended up featuring prominently in that episode, as we had filmed some of our kills with our own cameras.

If they ever replay that episode, I'm the guy who stuck a timber wolf.

there is a bow out there like 23" axle to axle and they have this lock thing on it. They were shooting aligators with it and this 10-12 yr old kid was using it the bow was like 70 lb draw but he could pull it back when he stepped down on it. Thought it was bull how they were introducing this kid to the sport of bowhunting where he took a bear with it later that its ok to keep it locked in. They were saying how with this short light bow you can hold all day and not worry about it and it was better then a cross bow because you had the accuracy at further distances then a cross bow. Do not know if they were pulling this out of the air or what but I do know that my bow is dang accurate still at further distances then I have heard cross bows but no accurate data for me since I have never shot one.

    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
    • Down this way I have been getting most my fish around weed edges and weed clumps. Trigs for good edges and chatterbaits worked on bottom or over the weeds, kinda how I would fish a jig. Water around here is pretty murky right now. Docks have been good on those lakes with dirty water and not so many weeds.
