      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 .

Anyone done bear with a recurve?

Recommended Posts

Boar

Thats my next adventure for next yext, this year, this year Me an minni boar are gonna use a crossbow. But Im now turning to a new challene in the stick an string department with the use of a recurve, then possibly longbow. Ive got well over a year to prep so would like any infor on arrow wieght an such such mechanics. No sight on the recurve so it will be all instictive shooting an any tips there would be great, even from those who just shoot recurve for fun or or other species. Any tips would be great as it will all be absorbed an carfuly disected in my walnut. Thanks boar

One key point... ok two points counting the actual points themselves. Grizzly sticks and a long and lean broadhead. Look at blades such as the Wensel Woodman or Zwickey type head. These are a good 3:1 ratio blade that will cut in deep and the Grizzly sticks have amazed me for penetration.

Run full length arrows and the heaviest blade your bow will fling straight to get the maximum punch. Make sure your recurve/arrow combo is dialed in with good arrow flight as sideways or whipping arrows work as good as slapping them with a willow branch. Waiting for the perfect shot and having your bait placed correctly in relation to the stand or blind will hold the most value when taking a bear with stick and string.

Yup what Jonny said I will add you will need to shoot everyday or every other day because recurve is muscle memory and hand eye coordination,a week off from shooting could take you a month to recover from.

I've never hunted bear (yet!), but I can tell you that the info Jonny P gave you regarding your set up is spot in for any archery gear designed for thick skinned/boned critters. Excellent advice and the heads he mentioned are tried and true, rock solid broadheads.

Also, as Sniper says- practice, practice, practice! See the link below, but maybe don't follow Allan's advice... wink
