      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 .

Bowtech and Blazers

Do any other Bowtech owners out there use Blazer vanes? If you do, do you ever have problems with the vanes hitting the cables?

I use them with my Bowtech and I have no problems with vane clearance. I shoot a WB rest so I can turn the arrows so that I get total vane clearance but I don't think it would hit no matter where I turned the arrow.

I've shot a couple different Bowtechs and know at least a dozen guys who have a Bowtech- no cable contact at all. Are you shooting 2" Blazers? Not sure how the 2" Blazer could possibly hit the cables. Regardless, if you're getting contact, something is very out of tune. Suggestion- get some foot spray (something for athlete's foot) and spray your cables, rest, and riser near the rest. Try figure out where the contact is happening at. My guess is that it's not on the cables, but on the rest.

Anyway, I'm not shooting Blazers, but I know a bunch of guys who are with a Bowtech and are not having problems. I'd guess you've got a tuning issue.

I have been shooting a BowTech Guardian and 2' Blazers for the last year and I have not been getting any contact with my cables. Which way is your cocked feather positioned when yu knock your arrow? I shoot cocked feather up in direct alignment with my string to make sure I do not get contact on the release. I also shoot a Rip Cord rest to make sure I do not have any contact on my shot.

I have a problem with blazers with my Mathews. Blazer vanes do stick out farther from the shaft than other fletch, that is why they work so well. If you have a drop away rest, all you need to do to turn your nocks till you have good clearance.

I do have a drop away, so I changed the alignment of the arrow which seems to be working.

      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.
