      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 .

Anyone seen this monster!

310 pounds, that is kind of like the other pic that says it is 210 inches. Nice rack, don't get me wrong, but I don't think that deer is anywhere near 300 #. Good deer though, congrats to the hunter.

I can easily see 300 lbs, I shot a 210 pounder and it wasn't nearly that thick! Regardless of the numbers it's simply a GIANT!

Lucky SOB cool

who cares how much he weighs? It's an awesome deer in anybodies book and it's even better that he' pictured with his future hunting partner.

Now if I can even get lucky enough to see just half of that deer it would make my hunting season.

congrats Mr. Hunter with no name!!!!

Maybe 310 live weight. My biggest at 224(dressed) looked just as big, and longer, too. But your right Meat, it dont matter! I would have probably filled my pants with 310 if that big boy walked by me!

Why be skeptical of everything? Its an amazing deer no matter what it weighs or how many points or inches of antler.

I think the pictures are fantastic! What a trophy!

MN is capable of producing very large bucks. Alot of people for some reason dont realize that. If people learned and were able to implement QDM, and simply let the deer get some age before killin them, we would be seeing alot more deer around this caliber.

it looks like it is taking up alot of space in the back of that truck. 300 seems realistic to me.

Unreal deer, I've only bowhunted a couple of times and would have been more than happy to stick a spiker, let alone a monster like that. Congrats to him, That's a deer of 1,000,000 lifetimes!

YIKES, that deer is awesome....Ya know what I like the most about the picutres is that he is not trying to lean away from the camera to make it look bigger. He is laying on the deer and that rack is still huge. 200-300-500000 pounds, it doesn't matter, that is one rock solid buck. His little girl looks terrified, how much do ya wanna bet that his wife was not happy that she was in the truck with that deer

That is an awesome buck to say the least. I also like the fact that he is actually smiling. I've seen so many pictures of guys with big deer and most seem annoyed or ticked off. That has always seemed strange to me.

They said that it was 310# live weight.

Ya that's what I figured. To make 300 dressed it would have looked like a heffer. Anyway awesome deer to say the least.

    •     Yep pop it up and hunt they work great.
    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy. 
    • Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.
    • I took this picture in March of 2017 near my parent's house.  I've never seen turkeys cross ice like that...  They were headed towards a farmer's silos, probably looking for an easy meal.
