      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 .

This is the main reason no offense I bought my bow from Scheels. They are very well trained in helping set up and tune a bow. The times I went to try things out at Gander they seemed to contradict everyone else's statements. I don't know where at in the cities you live but if your willing to drive the guys out at Archery Country and St. Cloud are an excellent resource otherwise talk to the guys at Cabelas. I know they cary Bowtech and they might be able to help you out.

When you bought the bow did you buy one with the correct draw length for yourself? I think if you bought the bow at gander, they may help you get it started. As far as helping you align your rest and all the other stuff that comes with purchasing a new bow.

Bwanas in Little Canada is also a Bowtech Dealer and could help you out and make sure you have the right draw length and your bow is tuned. A1 Archery in Hudson is top notch as well! Just depends on where you'd like to drive....maybe if you post where you live or work someone could suggest a good place to go. I have also got some good advice from bow technicians at the Forest Lake Gander.

Visit a proshop if you can. Bwana's should be pretty close for you and Jr will get you setup properly. The nice thing about the Diamond lineup is that they'll accept modules to adjust your draw in half-inch increments without a bow press.

The Rock is a great bow. It is adjustable for younger hunters. Either way of measuring your draw length can work, but that is generally just a starting point. No method can tell you how the bow "feels".

Have yourself measured and set the draw length. From there you can fine tune your setup, but draw length adjustments must be made by a proshop. Once those things are dialed in then you can start adjusting your sight and get practicing/.

Go to Bwana Archery it's located on the 35E frontage road just north of Little Canada Rd. They have a very knowledgeable staff and they will be glad to get you all set up.

Normally I wouldn't recommend going to a big box vs an archery pro shop for the technical stuff, but as mentioned above, Mike at Forest Lake Gander used to work for us at Compound Doctor and is pretty good, otherwise go see Dan at A1 Archery in Hudson. Every techician has their opinion on what is proper for someone, but the good ones will do right by you. The biggest thing I used to see is people getting sold draw lengths much too long for them. Some insisted on it (maybe a macho thing?) but not one of them shot as well with a too long a draw as they could or did when the draw length was right or even a little short. You should stand with a slightly open stance, the nock point of the string should come back not much further than the corner of your mouth, and you should have a bent bow arm locked in at the shoulder (not elbow locked) when it's set properly.
