      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 .

Where do you shoot them?

If you have your choice of where you can shoot a furbearer, would you always shoot it in the head, to save the hide? I hope that wasn't a stupid question.

i choose an alternative method, that doesn't damage the hide. But i won't post it because if the anti's were reading this they could use it against us. Please be careful on any answers that you post in regard to this subject.

Last time I checked this is a hunting forum, and if the anti's dont like what they hear then they shouldn't come to the forum. I shoot predators the same as I shoot deer, behind the shoulder and through the vitals. I stay away from the should cause that will cause big holes. more times then not, the critter will fall on the spot, when you use the correct load, or load that shoots the best out of you gun and good shot placement. Plus if there is any anti's reading, this is also the most humane!!!

I am pretty sure that any answer giving will be accepted, as long as it is within forum policy (remember this is a family site). That being said, I shoot for behind the front shoulder, I tried a heads on head shot once, of course I completely forgot about the 30+ mph winds blowing from left to right. No wonder I missed at 100 yards, and again and again and again.......... smirk.gif

troutmaster was referring to dispatching an animal in a trap. It is commonly done without a firearm at all.

Oh well that makes sense then, at first I couldn't understand why shot placement was a problem but now I understand why he held his tongue. Also trout I didn't mean to be offensive in any way, i just misread your post.

To save the pelt...I never use a firearm....

And, if the animal is near or on water, you shouldn't use a firearm either.
