      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.

I'll go 175 net. Hard to tell just how much mass it has and how many deductions it may have. A very nice buck for sure.

He is 190+ gross and I will put money on it. I shot this one a couple years ago. Hunted my a$^ off to get him. Got sheds and the whole deal. He grossed over 200. Something to compare it to anyway.

The fellow shot a very nice deer and lets try to keep the posts positive and not argue how much the deer weighed and how well it scored.

It is what it is.

Thanks

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.

First of all if I seen that deer I would [PoorWordUsage] myself, miss the shot, be mad at myself and settle down and make the second shot. laugh

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.

You need a pic of someone standing behind it so there is something to compare it to.

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.

    • Yeah, but somewhere in Iowa there is an imaginary line where the ratio of road kill flips from possums towards coons.   Their fur is pretty thin.   Had one under the deck a few winters ago that would literally shiver as he scavenged bird seed.  Missing a handful of toes, some bits of ear, and the end of his tail was black from frostbite.   About 20 years ago, I plowed my first armadillo in southern Missouri with the car.   Now it's about 50/50 on roadkill whether its a possum or a dillo.   They made their way up from Texas I guess.
    •   They have been hanging in there for the last couple decades in tropical Rochester area.   
    •   Too many variables. Impact strength, airflow setting and wear factors, air pressure variance,  lubrication habits, and of course the operator. It's very easy to exceed what the stick is rated for. Not break the lugs next time tight, but maybe a free brake pulsation 2-3 months down the road after the rotor is distorted and runout turns into thickness variation.  I always use a size smaller with the impact turned all the way down and frequently have less than a 1/8 of a turn left to go. I will even tailor how heavy I pull the trigger and ALWAYS follow up with a torque wrench.     Left hand lugs was an old Mopar trick. Knowing about them does date you!                   
    • Had a 69 Dodge Charger that had left and right hand lug nuts. Was pretty much a Dodge/Chrysler thing
    • Broom and shovel then Shop Vac in the spring if it's real heavy. Or leaf blower to spread out on the yard to break down if lighter. The cardinals are preferring the white millet on the ground right now 3 to 1 where I live. The other feed I am using is sunflower and safflower. 
    • I did that with some stale Christmas almonds, Blue jays found them and took all off them and deposited in the crotches of nearby tree branches. The nuts weren't out long, then they were gone.
    •   You could use your breaker bar now and re-torque while you are at home. 
    • We launched at Normana  and started on the NSST ,,, That wasnt groomed yet so turned around and hit the RR trail to Fish lake ,,, Met the groomer heading east ,,, Gave him some time to do more grooming and had nice smooth ribbon like trail for the trip back    NSST was groomed when we got back to the trailer 
    • I think that was fairly common at one time.   I recall havinga car or two with left hand threads on one side and right hand on the other.    I think the theory was something to do with the nuts not working themselves loose due to the wheel rotation (which seemed dubious to me when I heard it).   Might have been a chrysler thing.    
    • A Tucan? If you break them up I don't see a seed eater passing them by.    Maybe bait for Late Season Squirrel.
