      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 .

Which color pattern for new shotgun ?

I plan on getting my new Benelli this fall and was wondering what color pattern to get? I will only use the gun for pheasant hunting AND turkey hunting! Can I go wrong with just the synthetic black, or do I need a camo pattern? I need help with this! What are your thoughts?

Thanks!!

You'll most likely be fine with black, but the camo is nice if you get the chance. Really, with guns, it's somewhat of a non-issue IMO, as by the time the bird is close enough to truly study your gun (except for the ones with glare), he should be flopping anyway. I like the camo on mine because I use it so much for turkey hunting, but I'd put the money into better sighting or a model upgrade before the spendy camo dip.....esp. if it'll be a pheasant gun for you. That said, if you're not concerned with the price, I'd definitely go camo.

Guns with a shiny finish, esp. upland over-unders, that's a different story altogether. Every facet, nook, and cranny on those things has a shine to it.

I agree with Joel. Flat, no-gloss black is fine.

For several years I taped my gun. Good gracious, what a pain in the glutes that was. This year I used a camo dipped gun (only because the wife bought it for me for my birthday). It's one for one now, but I don't think the fact that it was camo had anything to do with it.

I use an 870 with replacement synthetic camo stocks, got them from Cabelas and put them on myself. Because I use the same gun for waterfowl, it is nice to have and was not very expensive.

Just be careful with those camo guns. If you lean it up against a tree and walk away they can be hard to find when you go back looking for them. Just ask elevator guy. smile.gif

I agree with the other guys. Black is fine if its flat. Mossy Oak Breakup is a good turkey pattern.
