      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 .

Hopefully some better pics will show up soon, too bad he isn't more 'typical' as far as score goes but what a beauty whatever the score.

I used to hunt the ridge between Modena and Urne cry

A HUGE buck for sure, but to challange the record? Looks like way too many deductions to me.

Still, congrats to Bob Decker!

Now I dont know if this is true or not...but I heard that cabelas will give $500,000 to whoever shoots it and lets them make hundreds of replicas for the cabela stores. Now if this is true, that guy is one lucky man!

I don't think he'll go typical. anyone want to start guessing on a GROSS score. my bid is 207. lacks some mass, and looks like it lacks symmetry, but hey, an absolute bruiser none the less!

If he's scored as a typical 6x6, his typical frame will gross close to 200", with the long abnormals, I'd guess close to 225. The common base points don't affect whether it can be scored as a typical or not, the length will just be subtracted on a typical or added on a non-typical. I think the hardest part of scoring deer like this is deciding what the typical frame is, he has a crab-claw point on the inside of his right main beam that would make him a 6x6. Little things like that make a big difference in score, which is why scoring some deer doesn't do the rack justice. Still a 200" deer is always bigger than a 140".

If points were actually determined to be common base (full figure 8 or peanut shape required now), then they would be classified as typical. Hard to tell from the pics I've seen but I think this buck's biggest problem as far as classifying points as typical or non-typical is their location on the beam. They can all be typical, even if some appear to come off the inside top of the beam and others off the outside top of the beam - as long as they're staggered. If it is determined that any points coming up are side by side, one inside and one outside, then non-typ. My guess on gross is 230-240, but I think he'll be non-typical. In my opinion, the biggest mistake that B&C and P&Y (same scoring system) made when determining their system was the requirement to first subtract for symmetry, then add in abnormal points, when scoring a non-typical. I say the fact that you decided to create a non-typ category in the first place, you should give them credit for everything they grow.

Best part of the article....

"On Sunday Decker smiled as he recounted stories of harvesting those deer. He laughed as he showed visitors a tiny four-point rack from a buck he killed last year during a hunt in Minnesota"
