      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 .

WILDVIEW CAMERA

Recommended Posts

DOUBLELUNG

I picked one up at Menards for $50.00. Picked up a "Kingston" SD 512 card to slide in it, and got some rechargable batteries. Went out in the woods and set it up last night. How long do the batteries last in those things? And does anybody own one of these camera's? What do they think of it? Also can a guy take a regular digital camera out inthe woods with him to check the SD card? Will it wreck anything? confused.gif

I can't say anything about the camera, but you shoudl be able to transfer the SD card to another camera without having to format anything. I would imagine you could use the camera as a picture viewer.

i have a wildview VGA .3 megapixel. it holds 4 C batteries and they dont last that long. maybe a month max more like three weeks. i tried using a HP camera as a viewer and it didnt work. you can use the camera however to transfer the pics to a computer. just put it in and hook it up. i dont like the camera the resolution is very low, you cant zoom in at all to look at stuff. the flash is also very weak its about a 12 ft flash no matter what the box says. it will give you an idea of whats in the woods though.

here is a pic from the camera

I'd say that's an awesome flash for 11:38 pm!!

Any camera is better than none. Fact is I've never seen what I would consider to be a framable picture from even the most expensive cameras. There are a lot of wildviews in the woods, and I've never heard of a poor performer, but I'm not selling them either. I have a couple different cameras, and the wildview is the most simple of them to use. I have multiple sd cards and just switch the cards, view them at home.

All in all, trail cameras are as much fun as you make them, really can get your hopes up!!

Nice pics. Yea, that flash on that thing isnt very bright at all. I put it out last Thursday and got 50 pics already. Most looked like the same doe and fawn with spots. Hard to see because it was at night. Then 2 six point bucks, must of been in the morning because 4 of those turned out really good. Whats a better camera? cool.gif

A friend has a couple Cuddeback No flash infrared cameras that take good photo's but the down side is they are rather spendy.

The picture might not be the best on the less expensive cameras but one can have more of them out there for the same money and you can see what is in the picture for scouting purposes.

for around a hundred bucks you can get a moultre 4.0 or a stealthcam 2.0 i own both. i just recently got the moultre but there isnt much difference. i would lean more towards the moultre just because the night shots turn out with a hair better color resolution. i think cabelas puts out a trail camera for close to a hundred bucks too, but i havent tried it yet.

i've got a wildview, but it just plain sucks. the trigger time seems god-awful slow, and the pictures are grainy. i leave the wildview in the car, and use the old 35MM. trail timers......it sucks having to get the pictures developed, but they turn out 100 times nicer.

My wildview 2.0 is a work horse. Been going strong all year long in every kind of condition for the past two years. Takes decent pictures. Not portrait quality but I'm worried about seeing what deer are there, not putting together a photo album.

The trigger time is slow but I have mine pointed across a trail, at a watering hole or overlooking a mineral lick and it seems to take plenty of pictures.

Great camera for a great price. Rechargeable batteries are the way to go. Mine last about two weeks most of the year and about a week in sub-freezing temperatures. I leave it out all year and it works as well as the day I got it.

My wildview 2.0 last about 3 1/2 weeks in the summer and 3 days in the winter. Ive had it out for the last 2 years almost straight. Its starting to act up though and is really slow now. So I think im going to replace it with a moultrie 4.0.

my wildview sucks!! I think out of 80 pictures only a few during the day turned out the flash wouldn't work outside and i tried it the other day and nothing would work. I have a stealth cam 3.1 and it's not that great but it works..

Since last thursday I have gotten 140 pictures off that wildview. When I viewed them out in the woods on my hp camera the night ones werent that good. But when I brought it home and hooked it up to the computer the night ones looked pretty good. I am very impressed with the .3 wildview, and especially for only $50.00 laugh.gif

Hey everyone its been awhile since i posted anything. I was hoping to be posting trail cam pics all year, after shed season wrapped up for me i went out and bought a cuddeback from gander mountain. I have yet to have it work correctly. the only pics on it so far are of me. Its having a problem with the batteries staying connected to the power source. I was told from one person that the screw that secures it to the tree is also what secures the batteries??? Each time i set it up and then go to put the cover on the power turns off and i have to start all over again. If anyone knows what im doing wrong, help me out, make me feel stupid, PLEASE. I wasnt sure if the big guy made it last year after i didnt find any sheds, but i saw him aug 19th.. and i KNOW he has walked in front of the cam.. hope i can share them with you!!

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!
