      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 .

New to bow hunting

Recommended Posts

This year I'm deciding to chase some deer with my bow. I have been using my bow just for bow fishing. so I never used sights, release, or a peep. So I went out and bought all that good stuff. Anyway, what does everyone set their pins at?(10,20,30) If I shoot at ten yards and 20 yards with the same pin it hits in the same spot. Thanks...

I set 1 pin @ 20yds. the other @ 40yds I only use 2 cause of confusion (there too close together) the 20 pin covers all 25& less the 40 covers longer,My bigest problem was using sights rather than open shooting which I still use.with sights distance estimation can be dificult rather than knowing your bow well and shooting by experience.

Where ya practicing now?? Where ya gonna hunt?? cool.gif

my pins are set at 20, 30 and 40 yards and then I go out and shoot 50 and 60 too just to see where I have to aim. I don't ever plan on shooting at a deer at 50-60yds but it is fun to see how close I can get.

We got some hunting land about 4 miles west of Manannah. I got a trail cam up and I'm surprised with all the bucks that I have seen out there. I also can hunt up by Norway lake. I also plan to hunt a few wildlife’s south of Atwater. right now im just practicing in my yard and at my buddy's house. Thanks again for the tips...

I'm the odd duck in this bunch. I shoot a pendulum sight that only has 1 pin for hunting in the woods, but she sure works well and smacks deer. I do have another sight with 3 pins for hunting out west on the flat open country. Those pins are set at 20,40.60.

I have 5 pins running from 20-60. They are close but since they are different colors (and I ordered the smaller diameter pins) so I don't have any problems.

I'm with Harvey I shoot a pendulum. 0-30 same, 30-40 hold a litle high. How much? experience tells you that. I've only shot one deer over 30 at 35, for me conditions have to be perfect to take that shot at this point.

Your pin set up is going to be determined by what bow you shoot. If you have an older slower bow, your pins will be more spread apart. With newer faster bows the pins will be tighter and you may be able to use one pin for a wider range of yardages. Also it comes down to how far your willing to make a shot.

I have my pins at 10-20-30-40 yds. True, for most shots the 20 is enough, but when a deer is close, 10yds or less and at a steep angle you actually have to hold your 20 pin under the animal to hit it good. Learned this the hard way. Nothing beats practice.

Good luck!

Agreed, nothing beats practice. I shoot 20, 30, 40 in MN and 30, 40, 50 out west.
