      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've never been to Boone's but I would think that Ahlman's Gun Shop down by Waterville might be similar and another possible resource.
    • Was able to get out these last couple weeks a couple times to enjoy the waterfowl before most of them left for good. Surprisingly was able to find a couple sea ducks on back to back weekends. The harlequin was a first for me in MN and the Long Tail was the second of my life.  Young long tail days before this lake froze over. Hen Harlequin below the St. Cloud darn couple weeks ago. American blackduck - may have some slight mallard mixed in with it as I noticed some green on its head from certain angles. widgeon picture I liked the colors with. This was taken early November.  
    • Hey, I just started mine and did about 5 circles around the yard just to smell some exhaust!
    • Wow. That's like a dictionary.
    • I downloaded and printed the manual. Worth it. It does so many things it would take years to fumble through to find shortcuts and fine tune without it. 
    • Well, the package arrived yesterday and I got it put together last night. Overall impression compared to the lowrance is that this is by far a better unit.   Starting with the bag. The zippers and fabric are more heave duty and look to be able to stand up to much more use without problems.   The plastic holder- probably a wash between the two units but the HB has done some nice things with cord management that give it the nod. Also feels a bit more durable.   Now to the graph- I live the display. It looks more sharp and more professionally designed than lowrance and to be honest I like the look better that the marcum lx units as well. Just personal preference. The adjustments are more intuitive and overall after being a lowrance guy for a long time I can't find a single thing that lowrance did better.
    • Dude, it's ok shes not on here.  Save that for Facebook! 
    • If you want to be happy for the rest of your life make a Finnish woman your wife. 
    • @huntnfish If you haven’t found another route to go for info, try calling Boone’s Fine Guns in Isle.  No guarantees they’ll know about that beauty but they could know a good resource for you to contact. I’ve never seen the selection they have anywhere else before.
