      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've seen something like that on a hunting show before and it was non life threatening. I can't remember exactly what it was called now.

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.

    • they are good eats!!!!
    • It is true I know there some teal around but that last hard cold snap moved some birds. While in Grand Marais i saw flock of snow geese and a good number of golden eyes
    • The MN DNR doesn't think we've had much movement but Louisiana thinks half their teal have left.  Its early and I haven't had coffee yet, so my reading skills might not be up to par but that's what I just read. The good news is we get to figure it out for ourselves tomorrow.  Good luck!
    • I hope it's just a really good teal spot; we need those little guys to hang around for a while!  
    • Yeah, it's not BigDave for nothing there fella!
    • It's dinner and supper!
    • My wife loooves Beets. Here's my recipe Lot of beets, as many as you can fit in to a large boiling pan. .add 1 cup draino .add 1 cup muriatic acid .heat with a blow torch throw off hwy over pass so they get tender under semi truck tries for one hour. Then go get some food and have a Beer! Enjoy! Hate um!      
    • The guy who told me this said teal were in big groups and he saw a few hundred
    • Just cuz they're flying that direction don't mean the migration started!   Summer-like temps again this year for the opener.  I don't think they're bugging out yet.  Last year I saw teal in NE MN in the 3rd week of October! I have enough shells and some calls I suck at blowing, along with decoys that sport my initials and '87 so I guess I'm as ready as every other year!
    • Never heard of one where ya DON'T cook the beets....but who knows? Here's one I used years ago... EASY PICKLED BEETS (1 Quart) 2 bunches small beets – ends trimmed and scrubbed 4 small onions – sliced and separate rings ½ cup liquid from boiled beets ½ cup white vinegar ½ cup honey – go local! ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon or cinnamon stick ¼ teaspoon cloves Bring beets and enough water to cover to a boil over high heat.  Reduce to medium and continue to boil for 45 minutes.  With 5 minutes remaining on beets add onion slices.  Drain beets and onions, reserving ½ cup of the liquid, set aside. While the beets and onions cool add beet liquid, vinegar, honey, salt, cinnamon, and cloves to medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Peel beets (this should be easy once they are cooled), and slice.  Add sliced beets and onions to a Mason jar, or air tight container of your choosing.  Cover beets with boiled liquid, cover, and refrigerate at least 24 hours before eating.  I prefer them after about 72 hours.
