      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 .

Scope For Rifle

Recommended Posts

I am looking to put a scope on my Deer rifle.. Has a tasco on it now and I get the half dark moon when looking through it.. scope is about 10 yrs old and was a cheap one then... Not looking to spend a fortune and looking for some good names in the 100-150 ranges to narrow my search.

Been looking at



among other...

Looking for a 2-10 or 3-9 and no bigger than 42mm lens ...

Slick looks are a plus hate all the extra knobs and stuff on some models ...

Going on a 30.06 Savage !!!

I use a simmons aetec 2-10x44 on my rifle and so does my wife. I think it is a great scope. They are waterproof fogproof and shockproof and really clear with a good eye relief. I got both of mine on ebay for around $120.

I really love Nikon glass. I've never used a BSA - but they seem to be too cheap to be any good.

Wal-Mart in Vadnais Heights had a Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40 on clearance for $150 last week....which is an excellent deal on a good scope.

I'm putting a Burris Fullfied II on my Savage .30-06 soon.....I've heard good things about Burris, their glass was pretty bright, and I got a pretty good deal on it. You can get a Burris around $150-$175 on eBay......the Fullfield II is supposedly comparable to the Nikon Monarch.....which is a truly awesome scope. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford another I'm trying out the Burris.

Nikon makes good scopes, I have one and a set of Nikon Binocs that are good. The Leupolds are also excellent value. The Vari X-II on my deer gun has shown the way to many a deer...

There is a pretty good thread here in the hunting thread on "scopes" and it has a good discussion on powers and objective lens sizes too. You probably don't need everything you think you do...

Burris makes a good scope for the money. Would definately recommend checking it out. Thought it was comparable or better than a number of higher priced scopes. For the money I'm very happy with it. Got it on sale pretty cheap and it came with a spotting scope that was decent.

Still bummed I missed out on a Zeiss for around $250. ugh

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
