      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 .

Record Book Antlers?

Recommended Posts

Looking at all this antler growth out there and from reading on here, there seems to be alot used.

Do you think they will have to start putting asterisk by the deer in the record books that are eating over food plots, if that could be determined?

Seems to me we are growing alot of "steriod" antlers, is this going to cause a overwhelmig amount of deer going into the record books? How may it affect the min's in the Pope & Young and the Boone & Crockett books?

Just curious?

What about Texas where the feed them directly out of feeders?

Better put the asterik next to the guys name that hunts next to a corn field too. The corn those deer eat isnt any different in nutrition than the corn I plant for food plots. It will grow the same sized deer.

Providing deer with the opportunity to get at the minerals they need to grow big and healthy is a FAR shot from "steroid" antlers!

Setting fruits and vegetables in front of your children and saying "eat this, its good for you", is A LOT different than putting a needle in their arm!

Once you hear iof deer in the book that were injected with a growth hormone.... then yes.... we have a problem!

yeah, deer in other states shot over apple and grain piles.

the recent boom in antler growth also has a lot to do with mild winters. deer don't have to eat just to rebound from a drastic winter, as they are still eating healthy in the dead of winter

Its like Barry Bonds and steriods, he never tested positive for roids, you hav to prove it, you have to prove some of these deer were shot over bait or food plots, some record deer in mn could have been shot over bait where in texas some record deer might not have been shot over bait where it is legal. I dont think you can throw things out there without knowing facts.

if you are refering to me throwing things out there without knowing the facts, i think you are taking what i said out of context. my point was so what if people shoot deer over a food plot. in NoDak, Wis, and Iowa, you can bait. although it is more or less called a feed site, not bait pile. I personally think we should be able to bait.
