      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 .

Does with fawns?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what are the chances of fawns surviving if the mother is shot this time of year. If it makes any difference I am talking about deer in the Duluth area that face harsher conditions than other parts of the state. Thanks.

i shot a doe with a button buck yesterday morning. no spots, looked like a healthy deer. he'll be fine. heck right before the rut they're gonna run them off anyways....theres no guarantee they'll meet back up.

both of what you said is true. what happens in a "perfect situation" is the doe will run their yearlings off during the mating time of the rut....thats why you see all the yearlings running around like they're lost. after it calms back down, these deer will generally hook back up. does then will "help" with the relocation of the now yearling deer in the spring.

Does run the yealing bucks off before the breeding season begins. This is natures way of helping prevent inbreeding.

I think its springtime, right before the new fawns are born, that the young bucks are run off - thats what prevents the inbreeding. In the fall of the year, its a combination of immaturity and the older bucks running off the fawns that prevents a fawn buck from breeding its mother. If you locked a doe and her buck fawn up in a pen, I'm sure he'd eventually get'er done, but with other older bucks around - not a chance. And after the doe is bred, the fawns, both doe and buck fawns, will reunite with their mothers.

I had a corn food plot below my house last winter, I'd have 15-25 deer at time in there, I could watch in the morning how first one doe and a fawn would leave, then a doe with two fawns, then two bucks would leave!! - my point is that buck fawns were not completely run off at that point.

That and pretty much the lower half of the state only gets one tag period now so we have to make it count. I'll take a "fawn" in late November/December if things are looking slim, but right now I'm not even going out much because I don't want to end my season by being tempted with a doe before there's a chance at a buck. I watch doe after doe go by, mocking me, knowing I won't shoot because there supposedly aren't enough of them. : )
