      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 .

AR-15 Scope and rings

Recommended Posts

Hey looking for some advice on setting up my AR-15...(Rock River Predator Pursuit) Looking for a scope for predator/p-dog hunting and wondering if a 3-9x would cover it or should I go for more scope. Also was wondering what everyone is using for ring height. I have a friend with a AR and a nikkon model..? scope and the eye relief is terrible. I am new to AR's but as popular as they are I can't believe this is normal. I want mine set up right.

Thanks

I need to get new rings, I went with high and I need extra high. Burris tactical extreme extra rings is what I am going with next. I have the 3-9x40 burris fullfield 2 scope, will upgrade to the 4-12 pretty soon.....there are other one piece mounts out there as well. if you are going with rings, you will need extra high.

I would reccomend at least a 4.5-14x scope. I have a loupold mark 4 with the mil-dot reticle on my AR-15, and i was happy with it shooting prairie dogs.

I was also shooting another rifle with a 3-9x scope. the 3-9x wasn't as nice for ranges out past 250 yards. It also had a thicker crosshair though. If you go with the 3-9x, you might look for a finer crosshair...

If you are near a Cabela's you might shop in the bargain cave for a good scope, that's where i found mine. i saved a ton of money...

good luck

I'm going to assume the Predator Pursuit is a flat-top reciever,I run an Armalite 1" mount on mine and it has plenty of adjustment to move the scope forward and back to adjust for eye relief and has plenty of clearance for a 50mm objective scope (mine is a Leupold 4x12x50 Vari-X 2} They look a bunch better than the high rise mounts also. However,I am looking for a 1/4" riser to dial it in perfectly since when wearing a heavy winter face mask the scope is just a tad low and have only been able to find 1/2" so far. I have a padded Acer stock on mine which may make a bit of difference and everyone plants their face differently on a gun.

    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • 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.
