      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 .

Weird growth on fawn?*** updated pictures***

Recommended Posts

The Buck I took last season during Nebraska rifle season had the same type of growth, only a little smaller. After field dressing him I took a look inside the "growth" and found a dozen or so golfball size like spheres in a clear fluid. The venison was fine though. Spit.

THat's strange looking. COuld be a wound that filled with puss, but that would be mighty large, My guess would be it's some type of genetic birth defect. Try hangin that on your wall.

Ive seen this before. When I was 14 years old I was sitting in a box stand with my grandpa and a doe crawled underneath a barbed wire fence. My grandpa and I were both appawled at the TWO milk jug sized growths between her front legs. My grandpa said he had never seen anything like that in his life. Until now, I didnt think I would ever see this again, or hear about anyone else seeing anything like this. Its weird...

It's an injury that's filled with fluid. It'll eventually pop and drain. Typically, it's from a fence post, stick, or some other foreign object. For a deer, it's the bodies response for walling off an infection. Gross but it'll survive.

I shot a doe one year with my bow and never recovered her. Two weeks later in the same area I saw something just like that. It looked to be the same deer to me. I would assume that its an injury, although i don't know if that is going to kill it or not.

We've actually harvested two deer with growths just like that. They were filled with all sorts of stuff but mostly liquid. There was some semi-solid masses inside as well. Despite their otherwise healthy appearance we elected to remove the deer from the herd in case it was an imparing quality or worse yet some wierd whitetail disease spreadable to others. I'd kill it. Maybe try shooting the growth and spill the ooze. Maybe not. Really though, that is nasty and I would shut it down.

I'm very much against wanton waste or illegal harvest, but this thing needs to be shot and left for the wolves. Maybe you will have an extra tag left and you could register it and leave it lay.

The increase of the size of that growth in that amount of time says it will not make it much longer if it keeps increasing at that rate.

You should send the picks to a biologist at the DNR or U.S. Fish and Game. Maybe they can tell you what it might be. How would we know if its in pain? How do we know if its experiencing discomfort? I would say shoot it and put it out of its/our misery. Who knows you may never see it while out in the field.

I would have to say... I might take her out of the herd. Wolves in your area? I would think this would be one of the first they would make a meal out of. She does not look like she is putting any fat on since your first pictures.

It would be interesting on how she looks in a month or two if no one takes her.

Well, if that thing doesnt pop soon, its gonna be life threatening, because the deer wont be able to walk soon.

I'm surprised it hasn't broken already. It even looks like some of the fluid has hardened, which would make it even more difficult to drain. I've seen lots of them over the years but never one that large.

    • This all sounds pretty darn sweet. You may want to start making and selling them.  So, what heats the house at night when the sun goes down?  Or did I miss something? 
    • Imagine just a black box with 2 holes at top and 2 at the bottom with a green house sheeting over the top. All 2x8 cedar and a piece of foam board. 
    • I have a pc type fan in each outlet pulling air through the panel. These are wired to the small solar panels that are behind the plastic sheeting. These are then wired to a snap switch that closes the circuit at 80F and off at 65F. So the fans won't turn on unless they have power supplied by their own solar panels and the temp inside the panel is 80F+. And ya just a pvc trim piece for a cleaner look. We did find that we needed to add just one layer of a ziplock bag to the outlet holes. Just any piece of thin plastic would do. This covered the holes to stop backfeeding at night. And once the fans kick on it's not a problem.  I don't but it hasn't been bad at all. And if you drive north all day it actually works and the house is definitely warmer than the outside once we get there. The whole setup I have maybe $100-$200. The larger solar panel and dual battery system is a whole different deal. 
    • I have given him a bunch of tips if he really took the time to read them before things went south. 1) Add more pictures and some from the sides. Right now all anyone can tell is their buying a hood, windshield and skis! 2) Take the old thin piece of rope off the bumper. 3) Post it on the site that sees a lot more sleds sold. And now. 4) Spend a few minutes and wipe it down clean and Armor-All it and may be spray a little black Rust-Oleum on the skis and other rust colored metal parts.  But that all may be a little more work then he wants to put into getting it out of his garage. Do I have a little experience at buying and selling sleds over many years? Well this one I bought for $2,800. I used it for 3 years and put a few 1000 miles on it and sold it for $2,700 More our less 3 years rent for $100 bucks! Took that money plus $150 more and bought the other one below for $2,850 with only 122 miles on it and it is spotless. So in a few years guess what!  
    • Unfortunately this is probably very true. 
    • Whatever works for ya. To each his own, right? Lot of things on here that aren't my thing, but they keep jabbing right along.
    • I know one you can sing....but it's sad that he has to satirize a song of a musician that just passed away, though. Ah, he doesn't see it from your side Glenn, because it's not his side. If one of us had attempted a rhyme, in reference to him, he'd be all over it.  He needs the site to run according to his views. He's a straight, upstanding fella, ya know. He said so.  Maybe we should sing his song... but he'd go catatonic.  I'm sure you've all heard it in the service. I am surprised it took him this long to jump in. . I will say a certain person(s) did sum it up in that PM, right on the ol' button. *BINGO*!  Carry on! Maybe tomorrow I'll post that song on his thread.....
