      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 .

3-D shoots losing their popularity?

Recommended Posts

It has been probably close to 10 years since I went to a 3-d shoot. Decided to go down to Lakeville to participate in theirs and there were only 5 vehicles there, two of which belonged to people working at the shoot. Have the shoots lost their popularity?

It was interesting to say the least, except I don't plan on ever shooting a prehistoric animal (they had a scaled down T-rex there). I did get to shoot a skunk in the butt though.... I never figured a skunk to have a 10-ring there...

VMS- it seems to me the 3D shoots are much more popular in the spring. Thats when I normally shoot them at least. this time of the year people are into scouting and getting ready for season.

I know the Lakeville shoots and there is no publicity for them. Even in the archery circles I didn't hear about it.

I've never done a 3-d shoot but I would really like to. I never hear about them and since I dont hang out at Gander Mountain I never see the fliers. It would be nice if they were posted here or on Archerytalk.

Small World, VMS. I happened to be down in the cities last weekend and a buddy and myself ended up at that very same shoot. My buddy said that the last shoot at Lakeville had 120 shooters. I was surprised also at the low turnout but I'm thinking that we are darn close to kids going to school which means near last chance for family vacations at the end of summer, which may keep some folks tied up and unable to make 3-D shoots. Could be the advertising issue, also. I don't think that 3-D is necessarily losing popularity, but think it's more "the end of summer, 3 weeks from hunting so broadhead shooting is happening.." is more the issue. Frankly, I enjoyed the low turnout, relaxed shoot at Lakeville yesterday. It gave me the chance to work on shooting for vitals (I'm more of a shoot the vitals shooter than a 3-D score, guy, to be honest).

Best of Luck to all, Hope your venison it tasty!

I think it boils down to the fact that like most clubs, it seems like a small number of people do all the work, and at this time of year, they're also interested in hunting, not putting on a 3D shoot. Seems like a lot of clubs put on shoots in the spring, which might be a good time for them, but it sure doesn't motivate me to go there.

I'd love to goto a 3D shoot this weekend if I could find one within 60 miles but they're just not very many in central MN.
