      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 .

First archery antelope hunt?

Heading to Montana in a couple of weeks to chase antelope with decoys. What should I be prepared for? Any tips? It's a guided hunt so that should tip the odds a little more in my favor. Thanks in advance.

I've never bowhunted for antelope but from reading in Bowhunter and other sources, your shots will be longer than the typical 15-25 yard whitetail shots, so practice out to 40 yards. A rangefinder would be good. Also, a lot of times they hunt antelope over waterholes, so maybe a good book or two in your bag would help for the long waits. Pack the sunscreen and waterbottles. Good luck! Let us know how you did.

I've been hunting antelope with friends before(I just never felt the urge to hunt them myself). 40 yards is a short shot for an antelope. They will often be very skittish and I've seen a lot of 50-60 yard shots(and yes they are very good shooters). It has been extremely dry in western North Dakota and Eastern Montana the last few years so finding water holes maybe a challenge. If you do find a waterhole somewhere by all means hunt it. Oh yeah... practice lots for those shots!!!
