      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 .

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.

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.

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 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.

    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance    
    • He's that Guy?  The one guy in the world that doesn't like BACON?     May be he's Moslam and can't eat it?

    • We live in town in the Twin Cities metro area.  We've had a female Red Breasted Grosbeak in our feeder for a couple weeks. Don't remember ever having them before. And just one? When does that ever happen with Grosbeaks?
