      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 .

drop away rest

Recommended Posts

What do some of you think on whats the best drop away for hunting? I want some thing that soports the arrow for less misshaps in the stand. That new scisser rest looks good. I have a wisker bisket on it now I love it for hunting but the grouping past 30 yard isn't that great for me.

I have heard very good things about the Rip-Cord brand. I bought one but I haven't used it yet to say how well I like it.

I shoot an AP Safari Twister. I like it. I used to shoot a Trophy Taker (a couple of them) and liked them too, but I liked the "dummy proofing" of the Safari Twister- arrow can NOT come off the rest.

I have a rip-cord on my bow and I love it. It locks in the "up" position to hold your arrow in place so when you move around the arrow is ready to shoot and quiet. When you pull back and shoot, but rest drops away. It has the stability of a whisker biscut with the accuracy and speed of a drop away. I am a big fan! Very easy to adjust as well.

The QAD LD is another nice fall away rest. I have been shooting one on my Switchy for almost a year and have had no problems. Its very similar to the Rip Cord. Their (QAD) website has a nice demo video...its worth checking out.

Just my two cents.

I've been shooting a Trophy Taker for about 3 years now and it has been a very reliable rest.

Scoot-It is a bit early on a Monday, but how does that rest work? I'm having trouble visualizing this rest in action.

The rest is roughly in the shape of a triangle and you insert the arrow through the opening from the back. Then it fits into an arrow clip in front of the rest. When you draw the arrow, the rest lifts it off of the arrow clip. Can't go wrong.

I like to dabble with archery equipment, so I may try something different this year. Just for kicks...

I prefer the Muzzy Zero Effect for hunting.

I have been shooting a rip cord for 2 years and it hunts well. I shoot it out to 60 yards successfully and do not notice any drop off on groups at distance.

the ripcord and the QAD ultra rest both have bars that go across the top, and they lock up, so they will hold your arrow. I am just getting a new bow and i think i will go with the QAD, because it will stay up if you don't shoot. go to their website and look at their movie to see more about that.

Trophy taker also has a new containment drop away. I'm thinking about trying that one. My friend has the rip cord and likes it a lot. I've heard good and bad about the QAD. Not sure where I stand. I've handled it in the store and I'm not too sure about it.

Well thanks for muddying the waters Cliffy. I was hoping to have it down to 2 choices. Maybe the guys at cabin fever will let me try one of each...... grin.gif

Regarding drop-aways, the market looks to be flooded with them. I purchased the NAP product a few months ago because the tines the held the arrow already came padded/silenced vs. the trophy taker for the same price.

I think I'm going to invest in a drop away arrow rest holder. Sims makes one that looks to "cradle" the arrow; not sure if I want that one. NAP makes one that looks to hold the arrow more firmly. Both allow you to draw cleanly/silently, yet still hold the arrow in place.

I think I'm going to try these out. Both are under $10.

It is true that most of the dropaways don't have a way of silencing the prongs from the supplier, but a $4 pack of camo felt tape will pad 10 rests. I already have this for many reasons so thats not a problem.

I don't know if most drop aways need it, but the ones I'm familiar with would need to be covered with the camo felt tape. I've got two bows with drop away rests covered with the camo felt and it works slick. In fact, I have the entire shef covered with the felt also.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!
