      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 .

arrow enters target at an angle

Recommended Posts

mrjigger

I know, I know, I should have started shooting my bow along time ago, but I just started shooting again on Sunday night. Just never seemed to find the time in between family obligations. Anyway, I have noticed that my arrows are entering the target at an angle instead of going straight in. Accuracy is good however. Is this a form issue? Any Thoughts?

Your bow could be out of tune. It could be a hard spot in the target... quite a number of things.

You can still get good "accuracy" if it is out of tune. However in the woods you probably want the arrow flying as straight as possible so you have less possiblity of deflections.

Take a few minutes to tune your bow.

Yep, sounds like your bow is slightly out of tune, possibly that your nock/string and your sight are out of line slightly. Where is the fletching located compared to your field point? A paper test at your archery shop will also show it.

When your bow is that out of tune, a broadhead (which is now engaged in steering the arrow) can take your flight way off course.

Mr... take an old picture frame 8-11" and put a normal piece of paper in it... NOT NEWS PAPER!!! and shoot through it(make sure you will still hit your target. Frame should be about 5 feet in front of target and about 10 feet from you. If your punching bullet holes, its your target, many targets will kick an arrow... Paper tune is the way to go.

You can cut the bottom out of a box to make a frame as well.

Could be hand torque as well. I would paper tune first though just to make sure it is not a tuning issue.

Do they all fly that way or is it just a few out of let's say a dozen or so?

Exactly, what type of rest do you have? If it is not centered it will tail either left or right depending on which way it is set to far from riser or to close, hand torque will have the same effect. The sight has absolutely nothing to do with it.

did the paper test, arrow went straight through and hit target. I am thinking it is just my block target. Didn't notice it happening last year though. But it is getting kind of old, had many arrows hit it. It definitely is not stopping the arrows as quickly as it used to. I think it is just the target though. thanks for the tips.

I have a Arrow brake bag target and some arrows will hit at an angle due to so many shots in the bag. Normal for my target. I have also checked with paper tuning and my arrows hit fine.

Must be the target.

is it left and right angle or up and down? or all of them? left and right only is your rest. i thought my bow was out of tune this spring but it was really my quick spin vanes on my whiskerbisket rest. i glued them on and i didnt get them exactly perfect. another good way to see how your arrow is flying is with a luminok. at dusk. hope everything works out for you.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.
