      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 .

What type / brand of deer hunting clothing??

Recommended Posts

I was just curious as to what type / brand of blaze orange deer hunting clothing everyone is wearing. I am using Cabelas Versalon as of now, but the pockets are too small and the jacket is pretty heavy. I am looking for a parka type jacket with BIG pockets that is warm, quiet, weather resistant and not too heavy. I wear bibs underneath. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I got the cabelas Dry Plus 4-in-1 parka and am very happy with. I think it is light weight, but yet the warmest blaze hunting coat I have ever owned. If I want to pack light, the pockets are big enough to hold my range finder, binoculars, bottle of water, grunt call, can call, extra shells, and a knife and some rope.

i have the cabelas revolution fleece. Insulated jacket, Uninsulated pants. They are awesome. I wear an orange vest over the jacket or I wear a parka shell only when Im sitting and its below 20 degrees.

I dress in layers fleece and wool and then put a thin orange fleece jacket on last with nice pockets, this way if it is warm out or I am doing a lot of walking I can take layers off and wear the thinner orange coat. I have buddy's that buy under armor this and under armor that and real expensive jackets and it's funny how they get cold and I never do. I tell them to buy wool and dress in layers, but I guess they worry about "looks" out in the woods. I wear wool pants as well, they are warm, silent and durable.

Sure is funny, I wear Under ARMOR And never get cold it's my first layer of defense.

I also use Cabela's E.C.W.C.S. was designed specifically for the U.S. Marines and special forces.

Wool absorbs water (and lots of it!) up to 50% which makes it Heavy!

& Bulky & takes for ever to dry.

Great for sitting but not for walking!

Under armour is the shiznit!! Stuff really works good. As far as a parka I just bought One from Gander Mountain, it is their most expensive one got it for half price! Really soft and quiet fleece outer and thinsulate insulation as well as their H2O tech water/wind proof. Good pockets on the outside and two inside. They always put all their blaze on sale opening day since I hunt in WI I went their and picked up a 300$ suit bibs/parka for 150$

    • Why do we need those new fangled solenoid things? My 41 Plymouth had a thing on the floor that worked the starter.  And another one for the high beams.  Bunch of sissies!
    • no tanks...............
    • That's exactly what I have in this system. Aluminum insect screen around a 2x2 frame that sits in the blocks along the perimeter of the interior of the box if you see in the construction pictures.

    • I was out last nite----7 inches of ice
    • Man wouldn't I love to have a nice F100!   Years ago had a PU from Ford with that rock solid, dependable straight six! What a piece of work. I traded if off and the fella I traded it to did the same and it went through a bunch of owners. And the last time I saw the carcass of the thing it rigged to big saw (24" blade) and was being used to cut firewood and slabs for cabins. Hell, it may still be running!!
    • Just enough ice to get away from the in-laws.  
    • Have you tied it using low power? 
    • The proview is a POS. To start off..you can't control the cone angle for dump. Turning the gain up to get a wider cone angle makes the lure signal and other signals huge blobs. Even when the gain is turned to the lowest setting, the proview never narrows to a 9*

      So in shallow water when a guy wants a wide bean and sharp signal returns the proview is a blobby POS. Because the gain needs to be high to get the wider beam.

      In 30ft of water where you want a narrow beam to keep your buddies lure off your display the proview never gets narrow enough turned all the way down.

      With a tri beam you can fine tune everything 1,000% better. 

      I had a unit with a tri beam next to a unit with the pro view.........that night we were sending the pro view in for an exchange to get the tri beam
