      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 .

Quiver on or off?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if you target shoot and hunt with your quiver on or off your bow?

Myself I shoot a ton of 3D's and I have a hip quiver, but I always attach my quiver to my bow because that is the way I hunt, with it attached.

OFF! First thing I do in the stand is take it off and put it onto the tree. I also practice with with it off. My theory one less thing to catch a branch or what not while in the stand.

I see all the "professionals" on TV hunting with their quiver on, but I bet most hunt with it off, then put it back on for the edited (fake) view of them shooting the deer. I don't want anything extra on my bow in case I have to shoot behind my tree or some other awkward postition, and I don't have to worry about sponsors getting mad at me. I guess it might be nice to have it on your bow in case you miss and need a second arrow fast, but I usually will take a 2nd arrow off the quiver and put it somewhere that I can get it quickly. Besides, I never miss. wink

Second thing I do once in the tree is take my quiver off and attach it to the tree.

First thing is secure my safety belt cool

I leave mine on all the time, while hunting. In fact I couldn't take mine off if I wanted. Never found a removeable one quiet enough for me.

I do remove mine during the off season for target shooting.

Off.

A bow mounted quiver is the #1 cause of bow noise at the moment of the shot. No bow ever made will throw an arrow faster than the speed of sound. A human can react to a noise in 1/10th of a second. A deer, who hears much better than we do, and is wired for reaction, will react to the same noise in less than 1/100th of a second. Most bad shots,and bad hits on deer occur because of that reaction. ("Jumping string", ducking the shot, etc.)

You guys do what you want. I want the most quiet bow shootable. For me, that means removing the quiver.

p.s. -I forgot to mention the "hand torque" added when you add the weight of the quiver.

That is why mine is locked on solid. Time will come when your shot opportunity comes quickly and you won't have time to remove the quiver.

And "hand torque" is not an issue. I've shot thousands of arrows over the years with no noticable decline in accuracy.

ON all the time, while target shooting and hunting. I've practiced with it on, it doesn't affect my accuracy, why bother taking it off? Plus I don't want one more piece of gear to hang and possibly blow around when I'm in my stand. I've even modified my case so that I can leave it on all the time, no fumbling around in the dark trying to get my quiver on.

Off while practicing. On to-and-from the parking spot to stand/blind. Off once in position and I always take one arrow out of the quiver within easy reach. You never know when you made need the stand-bye due to an unnoticed missing blade, damaged vane or cracked/broken nock on the one you loaded at predawn. Also, the extra out of the quiver arrow can be nocked up with a whole lot less noise and motion if others follow the lead into your shooting lane.

    • Yes, out of 100lb logs so they can't carry it away!
    • Really ufatz, that's how tomorrow  will affect fishing?? It all depends on what your fishing for. If I'm just off the flats chasing walleyes it would be interesting to see if they work there way up on top mid day. Probably not. To much of a short window.. 
    • Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.
    • My bait is getting hit but the bear does not like the large, cinnamon gum drops i added to the bait! He will drag them out and move on to other tasty treats. I do have red licorice to add next time.
    • Thanks...  Only truck in our neighborhood anyway....
    • Better than breaking your arse slipping on the ice.  
    • Yes!  There is no question the eclipse will affect fishing! The eclipse will draw peoples attention away from fishing and the casual angler will be all wound up about watching the event. They will not be paying attention to anything else and surely not to fishing. The result will be far fewer anglers on the stream and YOU will have more room to fish and less competition. THAT is how the eclipse will affect fishing.
    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.
