      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 .

Custom Turkey Calls

Recommended Posts

8point

Ok since nobody knew this about me, I thought I would share some of my custom made turkey calls.

Here 4 pot calls that I turned starting from about 2 weeks ago.

This first call is a Becote with a Becote striker

A Padauk with Padauk striker

And Walnut and Cherry calls with the Padauk and Becote pots. The other strikers are cherry.

Very nice calls Kevin!

I love turning them too and I really like the Paduak for strikers. That glass over slate should be a sweet sounding call. laugh.gif

I'm still probably a few weeks out before I start turning some new calls this winter. I've got some new wood to try out for strikers. laugh.gif

Nice work!

How is this done? DO you need a wood lathe?

Beautifull! Oh...if only I had the time. I have made some wing bone callers over the years. One took 2nd place at the state NWTF convention a couple years ago. Have you ever put yours into any contests? Looks like you've got it down! Great job.

Yep.

If any of you turned spindles or small bowls in shop class it's basicly the same process with more intricate cuts. Then with the pot you need to add a sounding board and striking surface.

I've really enjoyed making them for myself, freinds and prizes for the HSO turkey contest.

Thanks Guys for the great comments.

And you can also do them on a drill press and possibly a router.

Where would you buy these if a guy wanted to try making his own?

Below are some of the wing bone callers I've made. If I was to enter these in a contest, or donate to a NWTF funraiser, I would hand paint turkey feathers or hunting scenes on them. Sorry, I don't have any photos of these.
