      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 .

Quick Release

Recommended Posts

czl99

I have been hunting the last few years shooting my bow with my fingers and I want to change over to a quick release. When deciding which release to buy what should i look for in the release? Who makes the best quality releases for a cheap price?

Thank You for any help?

I'm not a big caliper guy, so I won't even go there. I personally use and love he Scott brand of releases. I use an Itty Bitty Mongoose. But Tru-ball also makes a great product. There are dozens to choose from, so, pick your price and I'm sure you'll find somethiing you like in that range. But don't buy cheap, spend enough to get the good stuff, and you'll only buy once!

czl99,

What to look for in a release is how smooth it is and how it's put together i.e. good parts or soft metal. Probably the most important thing to look for is one that fits your hand nicely and is functional. I used to use a Winn Free Flight but was doing a lot of glassing. It was always in your hand but cumbersome when you wanted to use your glasses. Perhaps a caliper w/a swivel or rope to attach the release will work.
As mentioned above, I've had a Scott Little Bitty Goose from the year they made them and it works as good as the day I got it. It's pretty scuffed up, but fits like a glove, has good parts, smooth, and always at my fingertips.
Get in the habit of placing it in the same place all the time. Probably like what you do w/your tab. Losing a release is a SOB especaially at $50/pop.
Can't think of any releases that are priced considerably better than others. You're going to be in the $50-$60 for most releases.

True-Ball with a rope loop or a metal loop to help you align your peep site!
Real accurate!

I use one called a gator jaws, which I suppose would be considered a caliper style. It has a velcro strap that goes around your wrist. I've used it for many years, maybe 7-8 something like that with no sign of any problems with it. It stuck once because I'd put it away wet & forgot to oil it or check when using it a week later, but that was my fault. I've been very happy with it. You use a double string nock with that style.

Big Bucks, I'm with you but as another gentleman said "go with what feels right to you" I like having the support of my release wrapped around my wrist.

Thanks for all the help i ended up buying the winn free fliht release. It felt the best to me and I love shooting with it. It is much better shooting with a qiuck release then fingers.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
