      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 .

Wounded Deer at work - what to do- .227 took him out.

Recommended Posts

I pulled into the parking lot today at work in Golden Valley and noticed a deer in the woods. A buck looks like it was hit by a car. Gimping around. His antlers were all broke up. He is still laying there (it's been 3 hours). Stands up every once in a while to lick his wounds. Do I just let him follow his course or would you call the police or DNR??

Feel bad for it. From the looks of it a broken front leg and wounded rear quarter.

Even though part of me says he could pull through it.

I have a message into one of the officers.

A friendly peace officer took care of him. The right call. The buck wasn't very healthy. If you can get here in an hour, the office left his card to issue a tag smile Wow, big mature deer with some crazy horns.

Thanks for the advice.

Can you get a pic of it with a camera phone or something?

Was your office building all looking out the windows like the kids on the school bus in Napolean Dynamite when that farmer shot that cow?

LOL

LOL...

Needless to say, some of the female co-workers didn't like to hear the shots.

I think one of the warehouse guys is going to take it.

The kicker is I just took a co-worker out there and not 2 feet away from the dead dear there was an even bigger buck making a scrape. I couln't beleive my eyes. 12 pointer, heavy heavy mass. Got within 20 yards of it. Went running into the Tennant property. Boy I wish I had my camera phone.

They have a better chance in the city with no one shooting at them!! Just have to watch out for cars.

I'm just West of you and I watched a big buck all day one day a couple years back. It was cool because we could look down on him all day while he sat with this doe. The one I watch was a real nice 10 pointer with an impressive rack but probably not AS big as the 12 you are describing.

I work not far north of you guys, right off 169.

Same deal. Amazing the number of deer and the size of some of the bucks over the years we have seen.

And also sad how many are busted up from car hits too.

Just curious, do you work at General Mills? In 2004, when I moved to Minnesota, I lived in a townhouse right by General Mills (just SE of 169 and Medicine Lake Road). There was a wilderness area there where I saw deer. If I renember right, the General Mills parking lot bordered this area.

on this same subject my buddy is working on posting a pic of a 12 pointer taken from his front door south of 252 on brookdale. His townhouse borders a little city park, that thing is huge. Years ago I lived in fridley and there is that nature preserve by the railroad tracks there east of East River Road, can't tell you the huge deer you could see in and around there.

wow, that's a nice one... scary resemblance to the one that was at my office over looking the expired one. Couldn't be the same buck but it was big like that.

I the buddy of yopaulypinkfloyd. My wife took that pic. The next night he was about 15 feet from my front door. I went out to walk the dog and as soon as we stepped out the door, we slowly stepped back in. I couldn't get another pic though.
