      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 .

Gentlemen, what type of camera were these pics taken with? I'm looking for a trial camera. Anyone have some advise regarding a camera purchase around $100.00.

Thanks!

Pics were taken with the moultrie 4.0 white flash camera.

I'm definitely on the fence with this buck...My guesstimate would be 120-130. His body is huge, so there's a chance I could be underestimating.

This will be a game day decision...I hope I get the chance to decide.

Not that much growing left....that buck will be lucky to be 110-115 at best, young deer, though tempting give him another year

The short brow tines will keep him out of the book if they were a bit longer he would make book with the gross score, I would give him atleast one more year but try for two.

If I see him during the season, he's getting the smack down!!! It's so hard to let a deer of that caliber go on land that gets hunted so hard! If I owned a couple thousand acres and was able to manage deer, it would be a no brainer.

If you look at the first picture, his brows are not that small. A good 4", good brows IMO.

When you see him, shoot off one of his antlers if you can.

A: he'll have been shot at and may go nocturnal

B: If you manage to knock off an antler, the next guy may pass:)

That deer will be roughly around 130, if he has any deductions, it will be very hard for him to make it in the books. Hard to say how much more he will be grow. Velvet really makes them look bigger that they really are. However, I probably would not pass him up. It is often said that it takes a mighty nice 8 point to make P&Y. He is nice, but I am just not sure if he would make it. I do think he will score in the 120's for sure.

I would say the picture of the first buck will just likely crack 100 inches. They always look so much bigger in velvet but once that comes off, you have a 100 inch buck in my opinion. Good luck!

Very few 8 pointers make Pope & Young. It takes a pretty good 8 to do it.

I had a very clean 8 that I thought would make it when I shot it and when I looked it over after I shot it. It went 121 5/8.

I'll say 115.

Good luck.

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
