      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 Choke for Grouse

Recommended Posts

Lund4ver

Ok guys, there has been a debate between my cousin and my self for years about which choke is best for grouse. My father and myself have also shot a modified choke, and on the other hand, my cousin has shot an improved choke.....Now I am sure that this might stir up a debate, but just wondering what you guys use.

Going out this weekend (first time this season), and might have to take both chokes with and see if one makes a difference or not.

Thanks in advance for your opinion/advice.

Improved or cylinder bore. Shots are close. Usually 20 yards or closer. The more open your pattern is the better. I know they also use to make a spreader load that would open even sooner for grouse. I also like 7 1/2 or 8 shot loads.

I agree with DRH!!!!

Quick shots with an open bore is the ticket. The big pattern is a plus and you don't tear the birds up like you would on a modified or tighter.

I've got an O/U. I go with cylinder in the first barrel and improved cylinder in the second for early season. I'll probably switch to improved cylinder and modified soon.

O/U here with both barrels being Improved Cylinder. I never change them when I hunt ducks either.

All it takes is one BB to bust a wing and a good dog.

71/2 is the load I use.

GOOD LUCK this weekend!!!!
