      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 .

anyone ever use buckshot instead of slugs for hunting deer?

are there any advantages to using buckshot over slugs? what is the effective killing range for buckshot? how do you know what size of shot to use, example 000, or 00 buckshot. and finally is it even legal to use buckshot for whitetails in minnesota? thanks in advance for any input guys.

buck shots not legal in MN. i think it has to be a single projectile. it does say right in the regs no buck shot. you cant even be in the woods with slugs and bird shot.

Really close... 10-15 yds. I have shot coyotes with it and for that i wouldnt extend past 20-30. I dont even understand why you would use it in the first place. At close range nd in thick cover a slug is going to get you alot farther than 9 pellets. We shot a deer during muzzleloader a few years ago that had been shot with buckshot, couldnt tell until after it was skinned and noticed a few small holes. The meat was green where it was shot as well. Basically it would work ok as long as the pellets dont start to spread out. I would guess you would want every one of the pellets in the heart/lung area. But again i feel they are pointless except for close in coyotes and fox.
