      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 .

3D camo outfits

Recommended Posts

R. Miller

Just wondering who has the full 3d suits for bowhunting. Gander Mountain's Guide Series jacket/pants combo looks like the best for the price at about $100. I can't tell if I'm a fan or not. It looks like you'd be covered pretty good, but I thought in might be a pain if the outfits easily catch burs, etc. Any thoughts from people who own them?

I own a set of 3D camo. I've had them so long that I can't remember the brand. Anyway, they hide you great, especially if their is a little breeze (makes the leaves move). I hunt really thick country and your thoughts about burs are right on. I pick up a lot of cockle burs and those @#$**&$ little things with the two prongs. The camo is really effective though. Works well on turkeys too.

Not usually a fan of cheapo products cause you usually get what you pay for. But I bought a so-called bug suit from Cabelas last year for $60 that doesn't work worth a lick for bugs but sure provides nice 3d leafy camo. It is basically mesh, so you can wear it early to late season over whatever clothing you like if you get a size with a little room to it.

On a sidenote from the sounds of it the little two prong things you're talking about are cat claw, at least that's what we call them. They seem to grow in really thick in mowed or logged areas, beaver ponds that go dry, that kind of stuff. I agree they're very annoying. My brother had a sweatshirt a few years back that got those little round burrs that are a little smaller than pea sized, along with cat claw all over it. We threw it in the wood furnace. He picked for probably half an hour & you couldn't even tell he'd started.

bigbucks,

Just talked to my dad (he's better with the botany) and that's exactly what he called them. I had the same thing happen to a wool sweater last year and I didn't even know where to start. I do seem to pick them up in areas that have been cut in the las five years or so. Thanks for the info.

One more hint, the stuff you see flowering yellow right now in the dry swamps is the plants that will contain those little two pronged &()&()&(&(*&(*!!!! But what are you going to do when your pheasant dog is hot and leads you right thru them? Thats why your outer layer better be something that doesn't let them stick or you'll be doing the burn thing, as you mentioned.

I have an ASAT suit that I wear if I know I will be scouting/hunting or groud hunting. Its a pretty sweet suit. I have had other hunters walk right by me and never see me. its kinda fun.

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.

      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.

      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
