      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 .

Does Anyone Else Not Use A String Release???

Recommended Posts

Owen

I have never use a string release before but I am thinking about giving one a try. I am a little concerned that I won't like shooting with a release. Just wondering how many of you guys still shoot the "old fashioned" way?

A buddy of mine used to shoot the old way and he switched this year and he has been pleased with the change.

shot "fingers" the last two years bought a release this past weekend and already notice a huge difference in my accuracy, i absolutely love it. the one i bought you can either pull the trigger or relax the trigger to fire the bow. I like the latter at this time, cuz i think it helps me to not change too many motions while shooting

Owen, hunted for 15 years with fingers then switched to a release 15 years ago. I'll never go back. Here are some things that come to mind.

1. It used to take me a week of 100 arrow days to get consistant at 25 yards... Now I can pick up the bow after 9 months and be shooting bullseyes from the start.

2. No more "plucking the string" causing erratic flight.

3. Much more consistant flight from one arrow to the next.

4. Easier to hold at full draw if you have the right release.

5. I recommend the "Wynn Free Flite" release. I've tried at least a half dozen and this works best for me because the weight of the hold is distributed behind the hand and also in the palm of the hand by your grip.

6. Because you can hold easier you can also hold longer if needed to wait for the perfect shot at full draw.

Good luck.

A couple years ago I set up one of my bows with all the bells and whistles and started using a release (I had been shooting fingers for about ten years) and after a year of shooting I went back to fingers. My grouping was a little better with the release but I never got use to feel of it; seemed like the release, sight and peep or kisser (I tried both) just got in the way of what was always a pretty natural process for me. I have sence gone to a bare bones recurve and love it.

It sure wouldn't hurt to try a release; if you like it you would still have a month to practice befor bow opener.

I use a T.R.U. Nok with peep aligner that works great for me. It is made out of aluminum and is positioned on your string for easy release connection. It also aligns my peep sight perfectly. Some people don't like it because they say the extra weight slows your arrow down, but when I shot a nervous doe last year she didn't even notice! grin.gif

I also used a TRU Nok when I was shooting a release. It was a slick set up, I just never got used to it.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.

      same results here lots of fish but had to sort through them for keepers. How bout them jumbo perch mixed in though wow.  I actually was catching quite a few smallmouth deeper as well. I had good luck with gulp alive pink shine 4" minnows too seem to catch bigger fish

      PSU, Lots of smaller walleyes mixed in with the keeper sized fish at most spots. A few spots do seem to have a larger percentage of keeper sized fish though. Looks very good for the next couple of years! Cliff
