      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 .

I don't know much about bow hunting but will this be enough to bring down a deer? I think the DNR is going overboard here to try to attract young hunters. Maybe I am wrong.

IMO - With the addition of carbon arrows and the new cam systems, I think that 30# will be plenty.

My main concern is that young archers are well informed as to there lethal range. Just like anything, people are going to have to know their limits as well as the limits of their equipment. I have a daughter that has been shooting bow for a few years now, but just can't break the 40# mark.

She knows that she can only shoot out to 20 yards max. and she is very capable of zipping an arrow through the vitals.

That being said, it will come down to adults teaching the youth about being ethical and only taking shots that they know they will be efficient at.

Well stated Woody. My fear with the drop in poundage is that some will still try long shots with low poundage and miss thier mark. Some extra deer could end up wounded because of a bad hit.
