      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 .

Trail camera question

Recommended Posts

I am looking for advise as to what kind of trail camera to purchase. Looking to use it around the deer feeder and for scouting for bowhunting. Not looking to spend a ton but don't want to buy junk either. Do I want one with a viewfinder? What about battery life and night pictures?

I am new to this obviously, just looking for a little guidance.

Thanks

I would recomend a stealth o cam modle I550. I have one right now and it works great for placing by the feeder in the winter and scouting for bow season. It has always taken great pictures and the best part is it takes a memory card. So I just take a spare out to the woods and swap out chips and put the full one in my computer to view them. They also have a hand held veiwer to carry in the field with you. Last year I got mine at fleet farm and the viewer came with it. I would say look around for deals i know on cableas has some promotions out.

I've HEARD that Scout Guard and Reconyx are great cams. I've used Cuddeback No Flashs' for the past year and am overall satisfied. The new Captures are finally available and the trigger speed is very fast. For the money, might not be a bad option. Moultrie's are excellent on battery life, but the trigger speeds are lacking behind other mfg's.

If you want to set one up over a feeder where you don't need a fast trigger, I'd say a Moultrie D40 or I40 depending on whether you want a flash or IR would suit you fine and friendly on the checkbook. Check out the site chasin game dot com for some good research as well.

Like with anything else, you get what you pay for.
