      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 .

Excelsior Bales in Twin Cities MN?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Wondering if anyone knows where I could purchase an excelsior bale here in the Twin cities. I know years ago I was able to purchase one from Bwana, but am unsure if they sell them anymore. Seems most places have gone to the foam block style which is nice for broadheads, but they just don't last all that long when you shoot consistently. The excelsior bales tighten back up when it rains, which helps to prolong the life, although broadheads are out with those...

Anyone know where I can get one?

Thanks

Steve

I'm not sure about the Excelsior bales, but do you have any city or county run archery ranges where you live? They have to order bales every year. They may be able to point you in the right direction or even have extra bales they'd be willing to sell.

A friend of mine made a permanent structure off the ground walls,sides,roof. It is about four foot wide, four foot tall three foot deep. Filled the hole thing with cloths. Got all the cloths at a church sale for around $20 bucks. Used a couple of 2x4s to make some kind of slide in on the front for several large peaces of cardboard. Then filled the hole thing with clothes. I believe he lined it with ceder to keep critters and bugs out. He packed the clothes in. He just has to replace the front card board peaces once or twice a year. He has been shooting at this set up for close to 15 years. Put a large front door on it to latch up when not in use. Made it large enough to shoot out to 80 yards. Shot at it many times over the years. Works great for field tips only of course. I hope to be building mine this year. Just an option
