      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 .

Loggy Bayou Monarch

Does anybody here use a Loggy Bayou Monarch stand? I'm looking for a good light weight stand that I can pack in to inaccessible areas, but that are comfortable for all day hunting. I hunted out of my buddies Lone Wolf and liked it, but the seat had a little to be desired. I found this one on line at Cabelas and it is even lighter than the Lone Wolf, has a bigger platform and they claim it is an 'all day seat'. Plus it's less money.... grin.gif

Looking for a real world - honest assessment.

Thanks!

Good Luck!

Ken

I have a Monarch and love it. It clings on to the tree tight and it is super lightweight. You'll love it.

I too have the monarch, very light weight and very comfortable seat. The stand is a little noisy when trying to hang it but I made a hook similar to what the lonewolf stands use for hanging. I put the hook arond the tree and then put the stand on the hook, seems to work good. The seat does take up a good part of the platform but with the footrest you cold sit all day.

Thanks! Is it quiet once it's mounted to the tree? I had an older aluminum stand and it was real squeeky the colder it got... That Lone Wolf I hunted out of was VERY quiet... I just think I will like a more comfy stand...

Good Luck!

I have a Millenium M-100 stand, and it's easy to hang with the Cam system, and super comfortable. It feels like you're sitting in a really nice lawn chair.

I haven't had any issues with noise once it was on the tree. After the stand is on the tree it is very sturdy and very quiet. Not sure if it will be noisier when it gets colder but I don't think that will be a problem. I would reccomend getting one.

I just bought the same stand....I have not yet had a chance to use it...but when I do...I will post a report. From all the research I did on the web...it sounds like a pretty good stand. I am interested in seeing how much I like or dislike the seat. I sit all day...so I am looking for something comfy...

Thanks again ACT!

Cliffy, I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the seat. I am holding off for 2 more weeks, but will be buying a new stand before the rut takes off.

Good Luck!

Well, here are my two cents so far.

I got the Loggy Bayou Monarch Pro staff about a week ago...I have not had the chance to use it hunting but I have played around with it.

It came with really poor directions but did have a DVD that I assume had better directions...but the DVD would not play on my DVD player or Computer....so I just had to figure it out myself by using common sense and looking at pics on-line. It was not too hard but still thought it should come with better directions or a working DVD.

My first impression was the fact it was very light....10lbs. The seat is big and seemed like it was pretty well made. The straps were basic...but just fine.

I took it out and put it up in a tree and it went pretty well. The strap that goes behind the seat worked really well....the one that goes down by the base was more of a pain in the butt. You see, the seat strap goes into a couple of D-rings and the strap has a latch that wont allow it to fall out. The base strap is just plain and goes into a couple of holes...so if your not holding on to it as you are trying to swing the strap around the tree...it could fall out to the ground. See pics.

I sat in the seat and IT WAS VERY COMFORTABLE!! Two thumbs up. I found the stand to be rock solid and I didn’t detect any noise when I stood up or adjusted my sitting position. Over all I am satisfied with it and cant wait to break it in at Camp Ripley.

Cliffy.
