      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 .

Albino buck on trail camera video (Video Added)

Recommended Posts

Some of you may remember last year when I shot a white mallard, then had a day when I saw an albino squirrel and albino fox within the same hour. Well this year I just captured a completely albino small buck on trail cam video! What a rarity!

I know everyone has their opinions on whether to shoot an albino deer but to me this would be the ultimate trophy because they are much more rare than a trophy buck even. This deer is 1.5 yrs old and hasn't been caught by anybody's eye I know of or by either of my two trail cams in the area yet, perhaps he's just moving through.

I apologize for not having the video ready yet as I don't know how to post. I will look into it and get it up by later tonight or tomorrow.

I have a picture of my great uncle back in the 50's or 60's with a albino buck hanging beside him. I should scan that in and post it next week....after I get back from deer camp. Good luck on getting him. I am with you on this one. Rare they are and it is not like they are going to pass it on to the next fawn anyways.

Albino's are protected in Wisconsin, but not Minnesota.

To me just getting a chance to see one while on stand would be awesome enough. I'm not sure if I could harvest one. Not because I think it is wrong or anything, but because I would be in such "awe" over seeing such a rare animal. Good luck in your pursuit. Can't wait to see the vid!

Sweet video. If I was hunting that area I wouldn't be able to sleep a wink waiting to get out and have a shot at seeing it, let alone shooting it. Good luck. A small part of me would like to see it survive so you could update us with pics and videos for a whole year. A bit of snow on the ground would really help his chances. Good luck seeing him and getting him. Thanks for sharing.

KG~ You better ask your bro about that.

Walleye~ Yes I did get that duck mounted, it looks great, put a pic of it in the waterfowl thread back then.

Sticknstring~ That's what I said, a full body mount. Imagine that in the trophy room! I remember when I was young someone's dad had shot an albino buck. It was either Cabela's or Gander offered him so much $$$ for it he actually parted with him.

Would you be able to pass him up and allow him to "grow up" for next year?

That is - if you had confidence he'd make it thru this years hunting season in the area you hunt.

Nope, because there are quite a few other hunters in this area. If I see him there isn't a doubt in my mind. I probably won't be gun hunting this area much though, but my bro is and would be nice if he could harvest him too.

Nobody to my knowledge has even seen this deer yet. He shouldn't be hard to spot from hundreds of yards away. No other trail cam pics or footage either. The elusive albino! Maybe he'll make it to next year.

Seen a few in my days, 1 like half white/half brown, but it makes me think about the time i went to Father Hennepin on the shore of Mille Lacs and saw 3 albino deer in the woods by the park a few years back, good luck!

    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.   
    • Yes. And if you got to the southwest part of the country they have some of the best wine on the planet as well. I was introduced to German beer there in the 80's and it was a learning experience. Bars with room temp kegs and either Dunkel or Licht beer. They know how to do it right.
    • I haven't seen that happen in the collagen casings I have used but if it seems to be an issue maybe try vacuum sealing any left over casings until the next time.
    • I hear ya Dave !  I spent close to 3 years in Germany and drank a lot of different brands of German beer and never had anything taste as bad as an IPA. In our town of around 100,000 we had 3 breweries and if you went 20 miles to another town the odds are you would not find the any of the 3 beers but completely different breweries. 3 beers always for the most part...Weitzen (wheat), Weise ( Normal) and Pils and all only had 4 ingredients and no preservatives. 
    • Mine lasted 5 years, then broke on the lake, but I got two new ones the week before. Lucked out I guess.
    • That's because this is the cooking thread and not Silly Town. Plenty of whining be-oches to argue with over there all day!
    • You guys must have a nicer wife than I've got. By the end of the day I'm worn out from arguing with her and come here for a break. Seems like the opposite on here sometimes. 
    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
