      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 .

Rage Broadheads

Recommended Posts

bigyooper

I shot a doe with these and have one complaint. The 2" cutting distance was to great to fit between the ribs. Verticle it wouldn't be a problem but mine hit horizontal.It broke throug the rib but lost all it's energy doing it. At 13 yards I didn't even get a pass through. I am wondering if anyone else has had any issues yet?

That is a possibility. 2" holes are nice but I prefer a smaller hole where I know I will get a pass thru. As long as the blades get through the vitals it will do what it was suppose to but pass thrus help with tracking. With that said even with small fixed blades at times you won't have a pass thru.

I use the three blade and I know four guys that use the two blade. This season the five of us have taken 12 deer so far and zero complaints. They leave a huge hole on either side of the animal and destroy whatever is in between. We rate them as the best broadhead we've ever used.

I'm with matt. I think they are a pretty sweet broadhead. I shot a doe with the 2 blader last fall. The shot was a little back and she still didn't go too far.

The 2 Inch diameter is more of an advantage than it is a disadvantage.

I've shot 3 deer so far this year, 2 with a Rage and 1 with a Muzzy MX4, I have alway's been a fan of Muzzy's and not much of a fan of expandables but I decided to try out the Rage 2 blade. The first deer I arrowed (with the Rage)went 5 yards, the second deer I arrowed (with a muzzy)went 45 yards, the 3rd deer I arrowed (with a Rage)went less than 30 yards. All three deer were shot at less than 18 yards, all 3 were lung shots. On the 3rd deer, the arrow was not a pass thru, the arrow went thru both shoulder blades and ribs going in and comming out. With the internal devistation on what the Rage broadhead does, I would much rather have the deer go down fast than to have to track it. All 3 deer were shot in a highly populated urban hunt, the last thing I want is the deer to travel very far or to possibly loose an arrow (with a passthru). I'm definately a fan of the Rage, if it means the down side is arrow looses energy and does not go completely thru, and the up side is the deer drop within site, I'm all for it. It can be expensive cause with the arrow not passing thru on deer number 3, it was busted in 4 pieces. My only "complaint" is the availabilty, the 2 blade broadheads are in such a high demand, the poor folks at the factory are busting their butt trying keep up with the demand.

Many broadheads will drop a deer fast if the arrow is placed very well in the boiler room. I have shot two deer to date this season and neither has went more than 30 yards. Both shots were through both shoulders and into the heart lung area and cleared the deer.

3 blade Muzzies.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try

      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
