      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 .

Climbing Sticks- How high can i go

Recommended Posts

maplegrovefisherman

I use climbing sticks for my stands. All reach 20 ft. I wanted to get a little higher on a couple trees am I OK/safe getting a 5ft extension. Rather not use the screw ins for the extra 5. Anyone use climbing sticks to reach that high?

I use 3 lightweight BuckSteps climbing sticks, but I also carry 2 or 3 lightweight strap-on steps by Ameristep. I ONLY USE THE STRAP-ON STEPS DOWN LOW. They work, but I'm still, um, cautious. Screw in steps give me the willies.

with this configuration, I can easily reach 20 ft, but I don't bow hunt more than 10-12 at very most 15 feet anyways. Rifle is a different story....

I also use Bucksteps. I've been to 24-25ft before. There is no law about how high you can go with a portable. Only problem is getting that high and having a good shot and knowing how to shoot the angle.

Otherwise, the sky's the limit wink.gif Sorry that was too easy

how high ya need to be, jeez! I would think you would need a lone tree to be that high up and not have to deal with a bunch of branches from surrounding trees. But I would go with climbing sticks to go that high up, NOT screw-ins.
