      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 .

Whitetail European Mount

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know a reasonable taxidermist that will do a european mount. I've got a decent 8 point buck that I would like to do this with.

I'd rather not have to spend over $100 to do it either.

I just thought it would be something a little different.

you can get a kit to do it yourself and it is really easy. i got my kit at cabelas for about $40-50. you could do about 3 deer with one and yes they are different, but very nice

I'd personally rather not mess with it. I think it involves boiling the skull and peeling off the fat/tissue. Not really my cup of tea.

I'm fine with paying a guy a couple bucks so I don't have to do it.

i shot a nice 9 pointer a couple years back and thats when it was cold during deer season. i put the head in a bag and put it in the freezer until spring. when the ground thawd out i dug a hole and put it in there for about 3 months. then i put it in the lake for a couple weeks. when it was done it had that old European look to it, it wasnt like bleach white but it looked good.

I fleshed out my skull last night... with a little effort you can do it yourself. Just make sure to stay in the garage... the women aren't real fond of the process in the kitchen. I just scrubbed some bleach on it afterwards & I think it turned out pretty good. If you want another place to compare prices in the St. Cloud area... google beetle my bones. I just got an email from him this morning... if you want more info on pricing, let me know.
