      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 .

Will be hunting in So. Dak. on public land. Looks like we have to use steel shot. Heard that certain older guns can be damaged by steel shot. Any info would be appreciated.

Yeah you have to use non-toxic on SD public lands. When they say older guns they mean the oldies. Most every 1960 and newer you would most likely be fine. The newer shot and wads have come a long way for protecting the barrels. What type of gun are you referring to when you say older guns?

one is a Smith & Wesson semi auto about 1975. The other is a older browning pump. The ones I use are Bennelli M2 and a fairly new O/U

As long as it is not a full choke you should be fine with steel, with gun of that age.

steel shot is hardest on older guns with fixed full choke barrels. it can scour other barrels too if pellets travel in the barrel out of the wad. good quality loads shouldnt be a problem though. if theres still concern about a particular gun you can always drop dollars for bismuth. safe for all barrels.
