      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 .

Strange noise, what was it???

Recommended Posts

I was out hunting last night and walking in to my stand I busted up a heard of deer bedded down by it. (not a bedding area, normally, but with the corn in the fields, they were there anyway). Anyhow, I snuck in and could still hear things behind me. Anyhow, about an hour later I could hear something to the west of me. It sounded like a raspberry, you know, when you put your lips together and blow. It was wierd, the sound kept getting closer but eventually disappeard. A little while later some turkeys came through behind me. Any idea what this was, it really sounded like something was passing some juicey gas, but it was quick like a grunt, yet, not a grunt I have ever heard. Wish I could have seen what it was.

Can't imagine turkeys making a noise anything like that. Sound like a horse blow? Any of those critters around?

Could have been big foot I guess...halloween is near.

I don't think it was the turkeys. Wasn't a horse, honestly, I have been the woods for 20 years and never heard it. I am thinking it was a deer making the noise. It made the noise often enough that I got a good listen to it. It sounded like a grunt, but it wasn't a normal grunt. Very weird. It definitely was getting closer to. It went from being a couple of hundred yards away, to I would say as close as 50 yards. I thought for sure that it was a buck checking his scrapes, but alas, never got a look.

Do you ever notice how the strange sounds always come from behind in an area that you have to twist your neck around? I was out last night and kept hearing strange things behind me but could never catch a glimpse.

I've heard and seen bucks making some awefully odd sounding grunts compared to what you hear them doing on TV as their "typical" grunt.

Does and fawns will also give off very strange "screeches", like in the case if they are split up or frightened. Kind of like a cross between a pelican, cormorant and a heron, and quite loud. It's got an erie pitch to it, almost like they about to be murdered or something.

Sohaad, thats what you get from seperating those deer from thier mother so abruiptly with a pointy stick grin Be fun to take out one of those high intensity microphones and record the sounds to play back. There are some pretty eerie things that sound off every so often. Could be the ghosts just practicing for the big night out too wink

Well, I broke up a small group of bedded down deer when I walked in, maybe it was a fawn that got separated. Or maybe it was a really odd sort of grunt, thats what I was thinking. Heck, it could have been a raccoon. I like to think it was a buck, but I've come to learn that when you hear someting that close, if its a deer, you can usually get some kind of visual on it. I never even came close.

Don't listen to tunrevir, he doesn't know a thing about deer! grin

Maybe the noise was a Sasquatch with a hairball?

    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
    • picking up the house tonight from a welding shop in town, guy said they get new houses that axles seize up on, sounded like they heated it up, broke it free, sand it down, grease it, add groves and it should be set. kind of scared to see how much they're going to charge me...    
    • I am new to the 4 stroke world and need to change the fluids in my 05 Suzuki 115 four stroke. What does everyone use for oil, filter, and lube? I was planning on using Mobil 1 or Amsoil 10-40 for the engine oil and the Lucas 90w gear oil for the lower unit. I don't know what filter to get. I know Fram has a filter that fits the motor. I run synthetic oil in my vehicles along with the filters designed for synthetic. I change my own oil and figure the peace of mind is worth the extra few bucks. Any opinions? 
    • Gobbler down...
    • Even with all the snow gone, they still dont want to come out in the fields. Even this morning i really got on the slate, this one come in at 640. Now im cayching brown trout. Good luck fellas
