      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 .

Moveable sights?

Recommended Posts

Just looking for some input on moveable sights. I'm thinking of shooting more 3D shoots this summer and I'm interested in hearing what other shooters recommend.

Consider what class you're going to shoot before picking an adjustable sight. Or, are you considering shooting non-competitive but still want to use an adjustable sight? I think it's an excellent way to shoot, especially w/longer distances. Using multiple pins works nicely but having the same pin/aperature provides confidence and continuity in aiming on each shot.

I enjoy shooting longer distances and w/one adjustable pin/aperature, vs. buying multiple pins, as it makes shooting shorter distances that much easier.

One more thing to consider is if you are going to use it for hunting, it can become tough if your deer are moving and move to distances where making an adjustment is required. Often times you can set it where it shoots a little high at, say, 20yds and a little low at 30yds. If you're comfortable w/that you'll be fine.

Good luck and have fun w/the 3D's.

Thanks for the info. At this point it would only be for fun, but if I'm going to use an aid I figure I might as well take full advantage. My current setup is one pin set for 20 yards. Most of my stands only allow me to shoot out to 25 or 30 yards and in most cases my shots are 20 yards or less. I found multiple pins set at 20, 30, and 40 yards was just to cluttered. 3D shoots are something new to me and for the time being I may just add a 40 yard pin to my current setup. I'm mainly worried about the durability of moveable sights, especially while hunting. Maybe I'll need 2 bows? crazy.gif

If your not worried about winning or anything, go ahead and give it a try. They are kind of fun. I used one for a couple of years. Dial it in and set the pin where you want it to hit... You still have to judge distance correctly! And you still have to exicute the shot.

I use a 3 pin adjustable sight from HHA- I love it! However, DD hit the nail on the head- still gotta know how far away the target is and still gotta make a good shot. Also, you'll have spend a good deal of time getting it set up right. Software from places like Software For Archers will help a great deal, but you'll have to do some serious messing with it to get it perfect.

The one thing you really have to be carefull with is keeping your anchor point consistant. I had a bit of a time wiht it. Because you change your pin locations your eye has a tendancy to center the pin in the peep, which if your sight pin is moving then your anchor is changing... You could be spot on at 30 yards one day, and the next it would be 3" low?

Just something to keep thinking about.. try and do your best to keep the anchor consistant.. and you should be good to go.

      Why do you think I come here everyday?  It's better then poking your eye with a sharp stick or slitting your wrists!

      I don't see any serious cold snaps in the next 2 weeks so its likely open water will still be in play for those brave enough to try it.

      Now is tough time. I was watching bays ice over a week ago and they are wide open again this week. Could be ice fishing in 10 days, could be ice fishing in a month. Who knows? I have a work trip to North Dakota in 2 weeks and I've been clinging to the hope they might be iced over so I can fish a little afterhours. Probably a longshot. I've already spooled the reels, cleaned and organized the gear, charged the batteries. Trying not to fishing-shop myself into financial woe. Even tried to celebrate open water by wading in neoprene waders and trying to find some sunfish on wetflies. No dice. Ugh.

      Miltona is wide open, there will be quite a few boats out there this weekend. Most lakes south of Miltona are fishable by boat.

      Can the DNR or who ever reported this, never use this word again "presumptive" when dealing with Wildlife disease results again! It can be better used as, "We are awaiting the presumptive proof of Al Franken touching a boob." But not about Wildlife issues!

      It's all open...it's ready to go..But we won't see any big time cold for awhile..Still in better position then last year. I was open water fishing the first weekend of shotgun in a t-shirt last year. We'll be alright.

      Be careful in Vineland bay, even though the river runs out there, there is still some current. It's very sandy there. Find vegetation along a drop off and you'll find pike. If you are going on foot you can walk out of the East access at Father Hennepin and hit a drop off pretty close to shore. Let us know how you do!

      Interesting on the common merganser. I want to go but I'm not sure either. I was hopeful our go to lake would be open. It is but locked up tight with ice from the landing (in a sheltered bay) several hundred feet out to the more open part of the lake. Haven't seen anything on it either. Our lake is wide open and bait shop owner says he remembers terrific late season hunting on the channel full of cattails into the neighboring lake,  and I've seen birds flying by, but will have to monitor the weather. Not launching the boat if its in the 20s and gale force winds. If it was warmer and a light wind, why the heck not? My wife is also saying no, don't go. We have a lot to do this weekend. I'm like, I would go right on our lake and likely be done and in the house by 9:30 Saturday morning. I would doubt you'll be up by then. lol.
