      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 .

Youth muzzleloader options

Recommended Posts

Hello all

Any input on best starter muzzleloader for a 12 yr old? Not looking for a sniper rifle, just a good, basic, modest weight, easy to handle muzzy good to 50 yds. He also is a lefty, which makes things more interesting. He will be using it for the muzzy season, so no scope. Looking forward to hearing what has worked for your kids.

Thanks

I don't have experience setting a kid up for muzzleloading, but I am a lefty and use a CVA Kodiak pro; the stock is made to be ambidexterous, it fits me well. They are pretty reasonably priced also. You could research the recoil difference between a 45 caliber and a 50, maybe the 45 kicks substantially less, but I have never checked into that.

I'd suggest the Kodiak. I found an used and wow good deal for 100 bucks. I suggest them because they used to have external safety's.

I started my father in it and I think he's probable more of a kid then yours... We did put a Limb Saver Pad on the back end of it so it would kick less. Don't know why he was soo scared of a 50 cal when he's shot 12 ga before and was over 300 lbs at the time. Make it fun and hopefully it will take off.
