      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 .

410 over and under

Recommended Posts

Does it make sence to invest on a 410 over-and-under that shoots 22 and 410 shots to hunt rabbits, coons, and small game or just a 410 pump, break, ect? confused.gif

In my opinion it makes a lot of sense. If you're shooting game that is standing still, use the 22, otherwise use the 410. Chewing bb's just raises ---- with my teeth.

A buddy has a 20 ga,/22 that he uses for rabbits, squirrels, and grouse. He thinks its great. The .410 is harder to wing shoot with than a 20 gauge. Much less room for error. But they're still fun guns to own.

I had a break action over under .22 and .410. It was my first gun. My Dad used to make me carry it with the breech open for saftey. But I sure loved that gun, Brings back some good memories. I wish I still had it.

I wish I had a 410/22 O/U. I've found 2, both in gun shops, but was too late in getting back to the owners both times. Unfortunately I don't carry a check book.

I think the first time the owner sold it before I got back to him (no problem there, you snooze you loose) but the 2nd one I think the owner (different shop) realized he was selling it way too low and just took it off the shelf. I saw him with a similar 410/22 (probably the same one) at a gun show asking quite a bit more.

I don't know that I would ever use it but it would make a nice gun for the grandson when he's old enough to start hunting.

I have one and it's great for all small game. Use it every year and never misses. Don't sell it cause you can't find another one like it. This one's gonna be in the family forever...

My dad has had one forever... love that thing. He still heads into the woods with it quite a bit even though he owns much newer guns.

Be careful if you put a scope on it. Think he now has a side mounted scope for sniping squirrels and rabbits, but you definately need one that's shotgun worthy.

Definately a great gun for the family. They used to be pretty cheap, now they're hard to find.

p.s. Make sure you flip the thing over to 22 - I remember hitting a squirrel with the shotgun, it dropped, I reloaded; but they're tough and this one ran, ended up treeing the thing and thought I'd clicked it over all the way, but when I pulled the trigger I got more of a bang than I was expecting.

feel like a moron admitting that (especially here), but it's one of those lessons you learn once as a kid and figured hearing straight from somebody might help keep it in mind - I still remember it 15+ years later. I wasn't taking an unsafe shot with the 22 and it was just as safe with the shotgun - but it does make the meal a little more crunchy.

I've had one on the Savage 24's since I was 11. One of my favorite guns. Mines a 20 ga under a .22mag. Handy gun. Look around, they are available in a lot of different versions.

It sounds like a great idea. Just dont start thinking u can hunt deer with a .410 slug. I know they make them and i know it is illegal, but i still have seen people and thier kids using 410 slugs. in order to drop a deer u would need a perfect heart shot just about but anywhere else is likely to be a cripple. but used strictly as a small game gun it sounds great!!!!!!!! never used one, as my first gun was good ole 12 gauge single shot. some models can take slugs too but if u choose this option get a recoil pad. even small game loads can kick pretty good.

My dad still has the old Savage 410/22. I spent many a day afield with that gun. I also let fly with the 410 thinking I was shooting a 22. What a riot. I was going to use it for deer hunting one year but couldn't hit a Sears catalogue at 100 feet.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
