      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 .

Loud Bow??

Recommended Posts

LuciandTim

Its been about three years since I shot and I feel like my bow is loud. If you can please watch the below video and let me know what you think.

Also, what can I do to make it quieter? What works and why?

Thanks!

LimbSaver and other similar companies have soooooo many products out there that claim to decrease the twang/vibration of your bow and I believe they absolutely help! I am currently shooting a Hoyt bow and as you may or may not know Hoyt has split limbs so i have the AlphaShox limb silencers to help out with unnecessary limb vibration. I also have a set of string leeches that seem to help. There are also sights, rests, quivers, and stabilizers on the market that will greatly reduce the amount of vibration during and after the shot.

Also, is your bow a little older? with all of the new dampening systems added on the newer bows nowadays seems to really quiet those bows up.

But, if your looking for a fairly easy fix to your noise problem I'd recomend buying a quality LimbSaver stabilizer, string leeches, and if you currently have one of those peep sights with the rubber hose connected to it, replace it! those hoses make soooo much noise!

P.S, It would also help if you posted up a picture of your bow so we could better get a idea of how to tune up your bow. laugh.gif

There are many things you can do to quiet your bow. First we need to know what kind of bow you have with what kind of silencing equipment on the bow. Do you have a peep aligner? I think those things make noise.

I have an STS, cat whiskers, limb savers, a s-coil, and shoot heavier arrows. All of those things help.

First thing I would do is to check and make sure that all your assc. that bolt on are tight. I had this problem and after checking all my add ons to make sure they were still bolted tight I took it to a pro shop. I needed a few parts that were wore out to be replaced.

LImb savers and such will help but may not be the only issue that you may have to deal with.

How about a pict of you shooting the bow.. So we can see what you already have in place to keep your bow quiet?

Actually I stripped the bow. All that is on it is the sights and the arrow rest. I guess my best bet would be to just bring it into the shop.

I guess my question is what has worked best for you? And how quiet can you get a bow to shoot??

I had a problem with noise a few years back and did the same thing you have done. Then, when I took off my arrow holder I found the problem. I had a noise out of arrow holder.

Could be maybe.

Taking off the string bats and putting on catwhiskers made a pretty big difference for me. Catwhiskers get rid of the twang much better. Shooting a heavier arrow makes your bow quieter too. The limbsavers and some stabilizers will take away vibration.

Most bows can be made pretty quiet if they are tuned, all components are tight and you have the proper silencing stuff.

I work for a few days here but as soon as I am done I am going to put everything back on the bow. I bought some new stuff from the shop and hope things quiet down a bit wink.gif

We'll see.....

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
