      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 .

4 shot is fine for teal and woodies, but once you start shooting the big mallards and divers, i'd go with a 1 or a 2 shot at least. I shoot a 12 guage, and sometimes have trouble bringing down ringnecks with 2 and 4 shot. This time of year i use 1 shot or BB, BBB they bring them down real nice.

Jr. shoots his little 20 with good success at ducks. He is shooting 3" in 4's for the divers over decoys, and uses 2's for the mallards. Even whacked a goose last year with a load of 2 shot to the head.

The Federal Premiums in 4 shot get most of the work. He alternates between Modified and IC depending on how close the birds are working.

When I used my 20 I would usually use 3's pretty much all around. I did have some 1's that I would put in for geese, but 1's were hard to find. I think 3's were the smallest I ever used. Now I shoot my 12 more, and go figure, I like 3's the best smile.gif I got a light-modified choke this year and really like it. Worked good over decoys, and even connected on some farther mallard shots as well. Good luck!

I used to sign on with all that ballistic stuff 1 2 shot untill my sons started hunting with 20 guage a few years ago and they are both excellent shots fro age 10 on to the tune that my brothers and hunting buddies did't want to hu nt around them cause they got shown up. All I could ever find for those guns then were 3 in #4 shot and they cold rolled malleards blubils and the ocasioal goose ot to 40 yards. I changed to 4 shot also and have never looked back All of my hunting partners now hunt using 4 shot 3 inch shells because they saw it worked... still with more pellets in the air and greater pentetration of smaller shot ..
