      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 .

is this new?....big grizzly killed

Recommended Posts

From: These pictures (not included) are of a man who works for the US Forest Service in Alaska and his trophy bear (killed in self defense).

He was out deer hunting last week when a large grizzly bear charged him from about 50 yards away The guy emptied his 7mm Magnum semi-automatic rifle into the bear and it dropped a few feet from him. The big bear was still alive so he reloaded and shot it several times in the head.

The bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds. It stood 12' 6' high at the shoulder, 14' to the top of his head. It's the largest grizzly bear ever recorded in the world.

Of course, the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Commission did not let him keep it as a trophy, but the bear will be stuffed and mounted, and placed on display at the Anchorage airport to remind tourists of the risks involved when in the wild.

Based on the contents of the bears stomach, the Fish and Wildlife Commission established the bear had killed at least two humans in the past 72 hours including a missing hiker.

The US Forest Service, backtracking from where the bear had originated, found the hiker's 38-caliber pistol emptied. Not far from the pistol were the remains of the hiker. The other body has not been found.

Although the hiker fired six shots and managed to hit the grizzly with four shots (the Service ultimately found four 38 caliber slugs along with twelve 7mm slugs inside the bear's dead body), it only wounded the bear and probably angered it immensely.

The bear killed the hiker an estimated two days prior to the bear's own death by the gun of the Forest Service worker.

Think about this:

If you are an average size man; You would be level with the bear's navel when he stood upright. The bear would look you in the eye when it walked on all fours! To give additional perspective, consider that this particular bear, standing on its hind legs, could walk up to an average single story house and look over the roof, or walk up to a two story house and look in the bedroom windows....yikes! the stuff that nightmares are made of....

I don't know how to post the pics but I got this in an e-mail....is this an old story???? It does look like a big bear!!

I saw the largest bear at the time,In Winnipeg Museum of natural history in 1970.There was a stair to climb to get to eye level,the notation stated 22 inches from eye to eye! WAS THAT BIG! My shoulders were bout the width of its nose,I'd guess total width of the head had to be 24 inches wider than its eye width!

I have wondered if its yet on display?

This is a VERY Old story...and most of the STORY is False.

Yes it was a Big Bear, 10-6 inches Tall and roughly 1200 lbs.

(not 12-6, 1600lbs)

It was not shot with a 7MM nor was it shot with a 38, nor did it kill / eat anyone.

It was shot with a .338 Rem MAG, First shot Hit the Bear just below it's left eye

and blew a good hole through its Face!

thus that is why all the blood on the Face.

First shot Pretty much knocked the Bear Backwards, but the Young man shot

(I believe 3 more times) in the Vitals to make sure the Beast was down.

I am also quite sure he did not work for the US Forest Service, he and Buddy

were deer Hunting but they also had a Bear Tag.

Thanks for the replies.....I thought this had to be an old e-mail being rehashed in another story.........these pics show the left side of the face pretty good though and the left side of the face is intact with no holes but the snout is definatly red so maybe the right side was shot.......way to big (12ft+ 1600lbs) and the story didn't make enough sense to be real!!!

The hunter and his buddy were in the military and stationed in Alaska. I remember when this guy first posted his story and pictures, man did it spiral from there. I want to say he shot that bear in 1999 or 2000.
