      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 .

best deer decoy

Recommended Posts

Scoot

I'm looking to get a new deer decoy. The one I've used in the past is just a nice looking 3-D target (and it's worked very well for me at times). I'd like to get a decoy that has removable antlers, looks lifelike, and allows for a tail-wagger to be added on.

Any suggestions are welcome.

I use a carrylite decoy and it seems to do the job. Ive had some hogs come right up to it and hit it. I dont think they make any decoy look "lifelike" except those Montana silohettes, but during the rut the deer dont care. Its seems if they are in the mood anything resembleing a deer will work.

This decoy the antlers and ears and tail come off. I usualy hang a piece of unscented toilet paper at the tail. The slightest wind will blow it around and you can scent the tp without scenting up the decoy itself.

The downside is its hollow plastic. Lightweight yes, but try walking trough the woods with it on a cold fall morning in the dark and every little stick that touches it echos through the whole woods, and the main body is way to noisy to assemble before you hunt.

If you can get to your spot quietly, its a great decoy. I wouldnt worry about the looks too much.

I cannot remember the name of my decoy/target that I use. I have horns that also attatch for use as a buck.

When using it as a decoy I place a old sock and staple it to the deer rump and also use scent on the sock.I dont believe you need the waging tail to attract any deer.

I have useed this many times and usually the deer will come to it but are pretty carefull when they approach.

This decoy is the solid type with the replaceable center for target shooting.

It works.

I like to just use the Jim Shockey silhoutte decoys. They are easy to transport and work and look great.
