      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 .

i shot a buck that green scored at 172 with my bow and i just dropped it off at the taxidermist and i was wondering if i can still get it officially scored after the drying period when its mounted?

I would call a scorer and ask that. I have seen and heard that many want to see that the skull plate has not been broken and seperated to give it a little more score. The worse they would have to do is cut the stitching on the top of the skull and check to see that it is solid or x-ray the skull.

Wasn't a problem for me last year, the skull plate stayed in tact. There was never a question about it being mounted or not. All deer at the whitetail expo that I took it to that were scored, were obviously mounted. I have the official paperwork at home. Your good to go.

Its usually not an issue unless it is a Boone & Crocket qualifier. The deer at the classic are usually for P&Y or the state book, and they wont tear a mount apart for that. B&C usually has a few more requirments; witness, photos, etc. If the antlers are solid in the mount, I wouldnt worry about it... but if anything is shady and it may net over 170.... hey are going to look into it!

I had a buck I shot approx 6 years ago measured to enter into P&Y. I had to open the top of the deer head so he could see the complete skull plate to make sure it was intact. He would not sign the form until I did. I'm not saying they all do require but this guy did.

Have it checked before the deer head is mounted and then you will not have any issues.
