      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 .

Big Buck from ND- 07

Recommended Posts

I finally realized i should post this because I know that he will not.

A good family friend of ours lives in North central North Dakota. His family has a large farm that covers a great deal of turf. A mile North of his house last october they found a shed, just one side, of a buck that was like nothing they had ever seen before. He thought that buck was definately gone forever, but finding the shed was cool enough for him.

The Saturday after thanksgiving of last year he and 3 family members went to the location they had found the shed. The left the area for the whole season in hopes the big boy would be there for the grand finale. He and another guy posted the strip of woods, while the other 2 or 3 drove to them. Almost right away the big guy ran and out and our good family friend took him down at about 100 yards. Here are a few pictures of him with the buck, and then his son with the buck.

I know nothing of a score or anything, but i think he said the deer was 5.5 years old.

Any takers on guessing a score??? They said original in the 160's B&C, but i thought bigger, around 190ish non typical. I think it had a 20 in spread, but dont quote me.

Super awesome deer Jeremy, but show us an official score sheet on that bad boy.

Not even close to a 190 inch buck.

Spread is 20 inches I guess.

Its a mainframe 10 pt. I would guess maybe 155 without the additional "stuff"

Additional inches from stickers/forks might be another 15 inches from what I can see.

I am going to go with about 170 to 175.

Incredible BUCK! That I know.

BLB are talking about my buck not scoring that high?

If yes...it was measured by an offical scorer at the mn deer classic. They said it would be in the MN record book so if anyone has one take a look. I never did look and they said if I wanted to enter it in B&C it would cost like $50. Not worth it to have my name printed somewhere. I'd rather buy something that would help get another one. Offical net was 196 6/8 I believe. Pics do not do justice. I have a couple of his sheds too.

Here's another look.

way over 15 inches of additional antlers length. mainframe 10 is a ten pointer with no points added that protrude from another point. any point coming off another is abnormal, a crab claw is abnormal, kickers, stickers, drop tines are abnormal. pretty much any point not coming off of the top of main beam is abnormal. way over 15 inches of antler are abnormal.

trust me i know, my buck from bow opener was what we all call a 16 pointer. however, mainframe 10. 6 points were abnormal, and went to the non typical category. 185 1/8 gross, 177 5/8 net nontypical. the difference in the two scores are the differences in symmetry of the mainframe 10 alone.

you learn a lot by watching as how they are scored.

    • Plus+1 last weekend got into a good bite in about 31-35 feet and they were all full of Minnows.
    • @Tom Sawyer   Any idea what this is with the painted lady?  Only saw this one at Munsinger.  Really a beauty. 
    • Thanks Juneau.... Just an FYI to everyone - HH is my account
    • Interesting take on the Koivu Signing:   Perhaps most galling about all of this is Michael Russo of The Athletic tweets there is a no-move clause in Koivu’s extension. Why on earth would Fletcher agree to include a no-move clause in an aging player’s contract? It’s bad enough when you give a no-move clause to a productive player who suddenly hits the cliff but in Koivu’s case there was no reason to do this. Heck, there was no reason to give him any type of extension in the first place. He also was entering the final season of a seven-year, $47.25 million contract that will pay him $5.4 million in 2017-18. Allowing Koivu to play out that contract made perfect sense. If he had productive 2017-18, he might be brought back but there also was the potential that his money could have been used on a younger, more attractive talent. Koivu is coming off a productive 2016-17 season in part because he was able to move from first- to second-line center playing behind 32-year-old Eric Staal. Koivu had 18 goals and 58 points and was a plus-27 in 80 games, spending much of the season with Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker on his wings. Like many Wild players, Koivu didn’t do much in the Wild’s five-game first-round playoff loss to the Blues. He had one goal, one assist and was a minus-1. All of this set up Koivu with the opportunity to return this season and prove he could remain a productive and durable player. When it came to Koivu’s contract, the Wild finally was in an ideal spot. That is no longer the case. Instead, the Wild has Koivu locked up for three more years and, thus, put themselves right back in the type of salary-cap situation they should be trying to escape.
    • Thats the way I ran mine.  One run of AC comes from the converter, and one run terminates in a male plug that goes into my inverter.  That outlet run is dead unless I am running it off my inverter but I just split the couple outlets I would need behind the TV and one other spot and it seems to be working flawlessly so far.  I can watch Dish TV without firing up the genny if I want.  Only time I would really do this is during a hot bite to minimize noise.  Outside of that, just let er run.
    • I guess we'll see in 8/9 months if he's worth $6 Million.....my point is they could have waited and resigned him in the off season for less...he never would have gotten that elsewhere...never...just leaving money on the table that could be spent more wisely elsewhere IMO.  Surpirsed he hasn't extended Parise/Suter for another 5 yrs at $9M/yr beyond the 10 he already signed them for   
    • I'm guessing that worms and crawlers wash into water systems after storms. So they are not totally foreign to being found in the water. Deep mudflats? Doubt it. But I do target storm sewer outlets on lakes shortly after rainfall with some success using natural colored rubber worms for bass. And have caught an occasional walleye while doing so.
    • Just relaxing and bobber fishing with the Mrs while camping up north 10 days ago, had decent sized suckers on. Had 8 suckers left for the evening bite. Found where some smallies seemed to be stacked. Two 18"ers, two 19"ers and what looked to be a 20" smallmouth that got off boat side.  A 23" walleye decided to get in on the fun, had a snip off and lost a fish in the weeds 25' feet down. Those were some productive minners. Bringing more next year. A nice double and my wife's new personal best bass. 19"
    • its same reason to cast frogs shallow back towards the shore late fall like they are jumping in the water. those walleyes know come fall thats what frogs do and are waiting to ambush them and makes for some great fishing.
    • I agree. Koivu is worth it, I was hoping for less, but there are so many haters that look past his stats to really see where his value is. Didn't he just lead the league in +/- last year? mid 50% faceoff win %, very prominent on penalty kill, etc. I love the Cullen signing, but he isn't the same player Koivu is. I was vocally negative on Koivu 3 years ago, but since then he has strung together 2 very good seasons. Apparently he listened. :-)
