      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 .

Economical RangeFinder

Recommended Posts

I've been looking at some ranger finders. 99% of the time will be in the woods for bow hunting. Are those $150 models adequate and reliable? I just want to make sure they last.

Thanks for the info

Used my 150.00 bushnell all year and I put in more days than the average hunter with no problems. Had to replace the battery once and that was in December. It's good out to about 150 maybe 200 yards. I also use it for target practice. It is great for bowhunters. Beats trying to guess with only the push of a button.

I think I paid $130 for the Bushnell I have. Its been great for bowhunting, although I havent tried it at longer yardages yet.

Thanks for the replies. I was hoping to hear that. The Bushnell is rangefinder I am looking at as well.

I'd be curious about an economical rangefinder as well. I want to make it to CO or WY in the next 2-4 years for an elk hunt. What would someone recommend? If only they rented the dang things because I would only use it on the rare big game trip when I'm drawn and then it would be overpowered for the applications in most of MN.

Thoughts?

We just bought a Bushnell 1500 black from scheels yesterday for 399...one thing we were finding was make sure you know how far they will detect a deer because they are normaly half of your yardage on the finder. Each brand is differnt if your doing bow hunting I wouldn't recomend this one it is bulkier then some of the little ones but we like it because it's got the spot on the bottom for tripod.
