      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 .

500 yard muzzleloader!!!???!!!!

Recommended Posts

Holy cow, have any of you see the new muzzleloaders from "ultimate firearms"? FOUR 50 grain pellets and a magnum rifle primer out of a .45 pistol casing surrounding the nipple.

How far will we go with these modern marvels and still call them muzzleloaders? I'm not a big fan of the idea of shooting 500 yards with any gun so I sure won't be buying one, but wow...

You can put the manufacturer name into one word and add all the standard internet address stuff and find em there.

That requires too much thought. What's it rhyme with?

The only thing that really restricts the modern muzzleloader, is our eyes.

If the muzzleloader season gets modern scopes, there won't much of a difference between it, and rifle season... at least for hunters who know how to pick their shots.

I have a Knight Long Range Hunter and it shoots pretty good groups at 200 yards on the bench. I would never toss that at game, but would feel VERY comfortable at 100-125.

I agree that it's getting out of hand. Even my gun has too much accuracy downrange. I'm young, and I remember the days of build-your-own kits and not seeing another hunter during muzzy season...

a few years ago I took one at 150yrds missed the first shot and hit the second shot and then hit with the third shot and put it down in its tracks. the second shot just grazed its belly under the kill zone. I'm not sure if I would shoot that far again but if the situation should arise I'll find out and by the way the third shot I had a solid rest the other shots were off hand.

as in just how far will the go with muzzel loaders to far aswith everything else! soon you be able to shove a rifle bullet down the barrel and shoot it

the mn scope law for muzzleloaders is lame and makes no sense.

but you can have scopes on them during shotgun season...yeah ok.

I disagree I like the rule. If you are going to have a separate muzzy season lets keep it traditional. What is traditional about shooting 200+ yards with a black powder gun?

I'm not getting the too much accuracy statement. i think some people are forgetting the muzzleloader manufactures aren't building these things strictly for minnesota hunters. there are states that allow scopes on a muzzleloader. it's simple if you don't like the modern muzzleloader get a flintlock, patch and ball hawken and miss at 70 yards.

wow, where will it end?

I hunted the days when muzzle loader season first came to be. not talking 150 years ago when that's all they had, but back in the 70's.

now the inlines with the pre made pellets, sabot slugs, shotgun primers,BAH!

I would love to see a TRUE muzzle loader season for 10 days before rifle season and then take your new inlines, call them "muzzys" if you want. that's a cutesie name, and shoot a two day season in the middle of february. in fact, make it a floating season anytime in february. that will weed out all the wussies and maybe we can get back to a REAL muzzle loader season.

I think a lot of the intention of the muzzle loader season has been taken away.

if they outlawed modern inline type muzzle loaders and modern powder and projectiles, how many would still go out?

exactly!

conneticut vally arms percussion cap and round ball in 50 calibur baby, good to a hundred paces no problem!

the real problem came in when you no longer had to choose, rifle or muzzleloader you had to pick one over the other. now it's all about how much more money we can make to spend on a convention.

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
