      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 Minimum Draw Weight

Recommended Posts

Just wondering, the new minimum draw weight for MN this year is 30#. Can someone actually get a clean kill at 30#?

Sure you can. Just remember to make a good shot and dont take any long bomb out of range shots and 30#'s will work fine. You will have a little more arrow drop at the farther ranges with less poundage.

With a well tuned bow, sharp broadheads and a well placed shot it should be no problem. One doesnt have to blow a arrow through the deer and another 20 feet.

The main motive was to get more youth into the sport. I think it's a great idea as long as hunting mentors of those kids teach them to make responsible shots as far as position of the deer and distance goes. Broadhead sharpness is one of the most critical things to consider also.

Not sure but I think Wis. has been @ 30 for years. Get for getting the young kids started.

Not only is it good for kids, but as I understand the advances in bow technology and with the advent of carbon arrows that the energy delivered by modern equipment at 30 lbs is every bit as good or better than the older equipment at 40. Like HarveyLee says too, its all a matter of knowing your range and sighting in appropriately.

My girlfriends bow was at #40 last year and she shot a deer. She thought it was broadside but was acually quartering towards her. aarow went out up to the feathers. Deer was found 60yds from where she shot it.

a 30 lb bow 10 years ago and a 30 lb bow today are totally different beasts. A well placed shot with a sharp broad head I would say woudl be a kill 100% of the time. I'm not going to turn my bow down to 30 lbs... but like other have posted, if it gets more children or women involved in our sport I'm all for it.

And... if it keeps me doing the sport as I grow old, I'm really all for it.

We hunt in Wisconsin. As someone said, the minimum has always been 30 lbs. A few years back, my mother, at 71 years old, shot the biggest buck in camp, shooting 30lbs. The blood trail was short and sweet. grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

I know my g/f was preety ecstatic to see the draw weight dropped, she went right out and bought a new diamond edge. she could never draw back 40 lbs due to a shoulder injury from an accident, but she has no problem with 30.
