      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 .

Pic's of my missed deer..

Recommended Posts

Just a few pic's (Now that I just figured out how to post pic's) of my little deer that I missed last year. Still makes me sick to think about it. Anyone have an idea how he would score?

Nice deer I would say about 145-150. I feel your pain I shot one about that size 2 years ago with my bow and never found him, I still feel sick when I think about it.

You didn't happen to miss him over that pile did you, I couldn't help but notice the scent wick hanging over it, I have a buck that looks about the same on the wall that is 150".

I think I suck at scoring but I'm going to guess 135 gross. I don't estimate for deductions and the net score but that split G2 will bring the net down.

But I like total antler and this guy has em! He's nice! Too bad for the miss but the bright side is he should be just a little better next season. smile

Geez! A response per minute. That's cool.

Wander, I think your just about right, I would say upper 130's. It's about the same size as 14 point on my Pic which was lower 140's.

I'd score him in the upper 130's, maybe lower 140's but something tells me he would be a little short of that mark. Very nice buck either way. Just think how nice he will be this year!

Nice deer!!! Looks like he'd take a hit in deductions on the right side. If I had to guess he'd gross 148 and net 138.

If He's 3.5 years old in that picture ( that's my hunch) He'll make a big leap this year. If all goes well you could have a 160 -170 class deer on your hands. You may be glad you missed!!

Good point bringing up the age CSTPETER, I agreed it looks like a nice 3.5 year old (maybe a 4.5 in the bigwoods). Those jumps from 2-3 and 3-4 and even 4-5 can do amazing things to the size of their racks.

Gross is going to touch 150, big deduction with the extra point because its so big. Its going to net about,,,,, who the heck cares about net score? Its going to gross around 150. C'mon people, a nice 8 pointer will score 125, that guy is a nice 11 pointer, just a little light on mass, thats it, lots of tine length etc.... Looks alot like my 11 pointer that grossed 163.

All I know is that is one heck of a buck that is going to be that much better this fall! And I want your cudde back. I have the No Flash and im not a fan of the nighttime pictures. I hope he shows himself this year so we can all see him again.

I hope you get another crack at him. I would say low 140's. If he can build some mass on those beams, he will be amazing! Are you counting the days until next season? LOL!

I am going to have to go 135-140 gross. A very nice buck and total inches is where it is at. Gross score is what is important to me. If the deer grew it I want to count it.

Looking at the pictures again, it looks a lot like the deer I shot that grossed 163, I had a little more tine lenght, but the buck in the pic is just as massive. I'm still going to say that he will be closer to being in the 150's than the 130's gross score.

He's all of 150 gross I'd guess closer to 160, you'll be happy you missed if you get him this year, he may be a booner. Good luck on gettin' him.

Are those photos from Canada or is that here in the states? I couldn't help but notice the dates of the photos and what appears to be a bail in the photos and the scent wick that archery sniper pointed out. I would guess mid to upper 150's

145 gross, maybe a tad higher. NETS are for fishing.

    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions?
