      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'll second that!! Gotta get some more cawn today....
    • From the  picture it is a male yellow headed blackbird; IMO there is even a faint white bar on the wings which may be what you describe as "the ring on its back" and the black smudge under and behind the eye.  I can't tell about the bill, but on a cowbird the bill is quite heavy;  not nearly so stout on the YH blackbird. Immature male yellow headed black birds are not so bright yellow as the adults, and there should definitely be some young of the year fledged by this time of the year.   If the picture is not accurate then we will need a better photo to do better than that.  IMO This picture does not show a brown headed cowbird.  Most cell phones will take a better picture and if it is tame enough please post another or even better a couple more.  The more different poses the better. Yellow headed blackbirds are almost invariably connected to swampy areas, especially those with cattail fringes.  They also tend to be around in groups, especially groups nesting in the same swamp not mixed in with red winged black birds.   The females of both species are quite drab, and quite distinct from those of the cowbirds.
    • I do live by a river and have lots of RWBB, maybe it will yellow up. That's a very distinct rusty brown ring on it's back though, I didn't see that in any of the YHBB pictures.
    • This furnace has 2 pipes. The larger pipe about 4" is the air intake is supported through ring #29. The smaller pipe inside the larger pipe about 2" is the furnace exhaust connected through the larger ring #30 and screwed to the raised portion of ring #29. My furnace a vintage Hydro Flame Convection with dual direct vent, needed no power, and used a pilot light. Had the identical 2 pipe direct vent as yours. I built 2 rings similar to your drawing. Had 2 major issues: 1. Anytime the wind exceeded 20 mph, my pilot light would blow out even when the furnace side of my house was parked to the leeward side due to wind eddies.  2. At the exhaust cap which was about 1 3/4" from the side of the house would scorch the side surface above the cap and the moisture from burning Propane (1/2 pt. per 10#) would freeze on and below the exhaust when temp went -10 or below. Second year I re-designed using the Pipe Cap photo 1 from Menards for under $10. I cut off the bottom half at the black line and cut a hole on the outside flat surface for the exhaust pipe. This was my fresh air intake. Also filled the inside of the cap with a disassembled expanded metal filter from a motor home stove top exhaust filter.  Photo 1   Secured it to my house and ran the exhaust pipe through the hole in the end. Attached the exhaust pipe to a 2" x 3" aluminum gutter down spout used as a chimney. Photos 2 and 3. Totally solved my issues. You may also find a similar cap to photo 1 for the exhaust instead of the pipe. Most of the caps I was able to find had a 4" connection point so you would need to modify to 2" or whatever size you exhaust pipe is. How ever you do it, cover all openings with a screen to keep the Mud-daubers out as they love burned propane orifice area to build there nest.  Photo 2 & 3
    • sure looks like YHBB.  open fields and swamps close by? They like to hang out where the RWBB do.  Cannon SX30IS is pretty cheap online. 35 power zoom. good for still shots.   
    • Going to bait tomorrow with fryer grease, bread, dog food, cherry frosting, peanut butter, soft candies, raw white sugar, and popcorn. I am throwing everything at them tomorrow, hopefully the bears like the variety!
    • I don't know about that but I will certainly not write him off, if he can be a steady vet I will be happy. 
    • That's a great chicken recipe duff, but that steak n corn get my vote!!
