      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 .

Muzzleloader or shotgun?

If you are looking for muzzloaders, there was a good discussion on this last year during season. Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but there is some great info in this thread.

Too spendy for my taste. I'll stick with the regular foster style slugs and limit my shots to less than 60 yards.

I have shot regular and sabot style and for my hunting situation I stick with the regular foster style. I shoot in woods and less then 100 yards. Now most of my shots are at 40 yards or less I have my gun sighted in to where I can group 5 foster slugs in a 5 inch paper plate at 100 yards. I just can not justify the big money for the sabots. I have shot 7 times in the last few years and got 7 deer. All with fosters. If they work fine why spend the extra money. Now if you were shooting open area with longer shots I would totally spend the money on sabots. They will give you a tighter group and longer range but you still have to know the limits.

With a good rifled barrel and then finding a sabot that works the best in that gun you can attain some very good yardage.I will usually use 3-5 different brands to find the one that will pattern the best with the tighest groups.

If your in the thick part of the woods with only a short range shot then the others will work fine.

You will see that some sabots shot much better in some barrels and not in the others.Slugs have come a long ways in the last 15 years.

I was thinking of sabots for black powder.

I shoot 200 gr. T/C shockwaves with 100 gr. of Hodgdon pellets. My average 100 yard group is 1 inch. I just got the ML so I havent shot a deer with this combo but Ive heard great results with shockwaves. Does anybody else shoot shockwaves? How do they perform on deer?

Which rifle are you using? If you are using open sights, that is FANTASTIC accuracy.
