      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 .

Bow

Recommended Posts

What is a good bow to buy for a 15 year old kid? I don't want to spend more than $350 with everything. probably looking at 45-55 lbs if possible. If that isn't than 50-60. Thanks

Well there is a lot of good started bows out there for sale but you must now what you are looking for. What I would do first is take your son out to some archery shops and shoot some bows. Then i would find out what poundage he can shoot and what brand he likes and can shoot. All bows can be set up to any one by changing the limbs and cams to fix the draw length. Then you can go on line and start looking but this is just to help you find what you might be looking for. But my-self I stay with the local shops and support them and when I need some thing they have it. When it comes time to upgrade they can take your bow in on casement and help with the new set up. I hope your search is fun and you find what you are looking for. Every one might say name brands that they use but I have been Bow shooting for over 30 years and with the new bows out there they are all about the same but some are lighter than others. so take him out shooting and take your time. Hope you find what he can shoot and he keeps at it practice,Practice makes a good shooter. Well good luck and have a great day.

Good advice. A local pro shop is always your best bet. The worst thing you could for your son is buy a bow that doesn't fit him and isn't any fun to shoot. A local shop can also get him started with a few lessons to get him on the right track right away.

There are many good bows on the market today in your price range that are highly adjustable so he can shoot it for several years to come.

if your around St.Cloud by chance at all go to archery country.There are plenty of bows to look at and shoot. have him try a bunch of them and see what fits him best. theres a range and a hunt simulator there that he can try the bows out. theres good customer service and decent prices.
