      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 .

I guide hunters for a handicapped hunt every year and many use a Ten Point for a crossbow.They are very nice but a little on the spendy side.

Ten Point would probably be the way to go. I know for sure that some of those have powered cockers. I use a barnett with the cocking aid. But you definately need two hands to cock it with that.

Lund 95, Ten Point and Horton are a couple of very good bows. Depending on how much you want to spend they can range from 350.00 to 1000.00. You may also want to take a look at the new one by Bowtech called the Stryker. They say it will shoot 400 fps and they should be out by the first of the year.

Had a buddy who just recently purchased an Excaliber. He purchased the top model rated at 350 fps. The bow was a little too long for the buddy so he purchased the hand cranking cocker. The bow is extremely fast and deadly accurate. The crossbow is a traditional crossbow, not a compound.

Before buying, we talked to Schaefer Archery in Burnsville and this is the bow they recommended. The buddy spent about $1100 for the complete setup and hunting license.
