      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 .

Do you guys think a high caliber pellet gun will kill a grey fox? I have some area's that I just don't trust shooting a 17hmr or 22. Most of my shots will be 20 yards or less.

use a .410 or 20 gauge if your worried about the distance of a rife.

shotgun would be my first choice. Yes, there are some mighty powerful pellet guns out there that would bring down a fox in it's tracks, but they are awfully spendy........

CNY, I deffinetly think it would kill a fox up close. My RWS travels at 1150fps.

CNY the bottomline is it would be easy to wound a fox with a pellet gun, sure you can kill one, close enough with a perfect shot, but I would not try it. In my mind you owe it to the animal to use the right tool for the cleanest, quickest kill.

what about a 22 short ? i would use that before a pellet gun. or like fishermann says a .410 is all you need for close range.

Hey Lee,

I've got to agree, the only air gun I'd use would be one that contains it's air supply via a can and those are expensive. Even the 1600 FPS gamo really isn't enough for a fox at that range regardless of the pellet used, & there are some specially designed ones out there. If you've got a .22, there are some good short or CB loads available. They'd be quiet and not have the distance concerns associated with the other rifles. Got to agree that the .410 is a great choice as well. If you don't have one, call me and you can try mine out. See you on the ice!
