      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 .

Will WI have the #1 typical by seasons end?

Recommended Posts

Last week I saw some online footage of a monster here in WI. Good enough footage to know he's got more than enough antler to beat Milo's #1 typical but not good enough footage to tell if deductions will prevent that.

Of course he could get hit by a car, break tines, or because they figure him at 6.5 years he very well might make it through another season. Anyone else seen the video?

For sure its enough to make you drool. Later.

I have seen it. Pretty amazing. They claim it to be a wild deer on unfenced private property in Buffalo county Wisc. You can see the video on the field and stream magazine HSOforum. Has to have a good plan for evading hunters to have gotten that big.

I just peed a little. Jimminy Christmas! I hope someone puts an arrow through that creature! I really hope a bowhunter takes him. Might be tough to enter as a typical. I am guessing 218 3/8" net and 249 5/8" gross just for kicks. Anyone else want to play the guessing game? Also, he will get shot November 3rd.

What a monster! My only question is, is he a main fram 10 or tweleve? He is a 6x6 for sure but I think one a point on each side shares a common base on the main beam with another point. If it can be scored as main frame 12 point than I think he's got a shot, as a 10 point I doubt he is big enough.

regardless what a deer!

I agree, he looks like he'll gross huge. But it appears some of his points share bases or come from the inside of the beam.

Its going to be like that Zaft buck from Edmonton. "New World Record" until the tape beats him up!

What a giant! Whether its this one or not, its only a matter of time before Milo has a contender. Seems to be more and more 200"+ typicals every year now. Lots of difference between 200 and a 213 though.

Neat to see.

That video kills me. I was born about 15 years too late.

My grampa had a small dairy farm 4-5 miles east of Mondovi. My sister and I spent a couple weeks every summer there. Unfortunately, he passed away when I was about 8, and my mom's 5 sisters were not an agreeable bunch.

Long story short, they pretty much gave away about 400 acres of prime land. If the banks would only give 8 year olds large amounts of money, I'd be one happy dude.

Its more about the does genetics that the bucks. Only certain does will carry the gene for throwing large racked bucks. Dont get me wrong, the breeding buck needs to be quite large to pass on that kind of genetics, but its really more about the does father than the breeding buck. Just some info, that I dont think is very mainstream.

I just hope the nite hunters in that area dont do anything stupid. I have a few friends in mondovi and from what they tell me there seems to be no shortage of those guys in the area..

Hopefully the actual location of that deer will remain a mystery. I'd hate to see that thing shot illegally and become the property of the state. It would be nice a "hunter" was able to get it.

Its Called advertising...!

Buffalo County Outfitters want's all of you to go out there and

each spend $3,000.00 each to shoot a Deer...

I would not be surprised if they had it inside a Fence.

Musky is right.

Big fat advertisement really. Its got their official logo on the upper portion and specifically spells it out on the bottom.

I'd really doubt its a fenced animal. I know a few people that have hunted with them, and they are some hard workin guys I guess. BUT, one never knows.

Think they have seen an increase in phone calls since this video hit the web??? LOL

At least they don't charge per inch like a lot of those places. Kind of sad someone with deep pockets will probably shoot the next world record.

I'm sure that buck is the equivelent of Barry Bonds. It'll break records but did it really? I'm sure that thing is chalked full of growth hormoes and Yellow #5.

It is one heck of an animal no matter what! King of that forest!

    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
