      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!

    • I have a Minnkota 12V bow mount trolling motor but need a foot pedal as mine isn't reliable and they discontinued the product.  The connection of the cord is a little over an inch and oval in shape.  Thank you!
    • The wife and I have different tastes so I usually use an off the shelf prime rib rub and finish up with coarse ground salt and pepper. There are lots of great rub recipes out on the net depending on your taste and company
    • Good catch of the actions and reactions of the walleyes down there.
    • Nice catch for your little boy!
    • Drumming at night.  Did you go after them with you burlap bag and flashlight? 
    • The more i research there seems to be a consensus that there is not a reasonably priced inline reel on the market worth the price tag.  Along those lines i dont recall too many of the guys making a living in the industry using them, even though a few promote them.  Think mr genz, he has his name on an inline but i dont recall any youtube footage of him using one.  
    • I was sleeping in the topper of my truck two weeks ago and it was *thump....... thump........thumpity thumpity* all night long.  Maybe it's the yearlings just figuring stuff out and finding themselves? Young males thinking they are all that?
    • This looks promising.  Usually have the little guys but a little more age in these two. 
    • I’ve heard drumming deep into the summer when I was out trout fishing. I thought that was a little odd. It’s one of the nicest sounds to come out of the woods though, so if they do it year round, I’ll take it!
    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
