      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 .

Does without fawns

Recommended Posts

Nova

Was at the hunting shack last week and saw 28 deer, which is good, but only saw one doe with a single fawn and one with a pair of fawns. 9-10 different does did not have fawns. Any idea why this is?

could be coyotes, but you would think there should still be a few more of those does with fawns, unless the does are leaving them until dark when it is cooler before coming out.

Sounds like predators are getting a few but also remember that not all doe fawns are bred their first year of life, some of them will be running around with no fawns.

I actually saw a fawn that couldn't have been more than a couple days old a week ago. I wonder if any of them were still pregnant? A guy in our group, 4 years ago, shot a fawn with spots in December Muzzleloading. Don't ask me why he did it other than he said he would never have that opportunity again and most likely it would never had made it through the winter. My point being that there are still some deer out there that haven't given birth, its rare, but it happens. Preditors could have been to blame, but Coyotes wouldn't have gotten all 10 of them. Where do you hunt?

I have a cabin in Brainerd and we have a little Cougar and Timber Wolf issue right now. They both have been spotted eating deer with in 1/2 mile of my treestand in the last 12 months. What are you going to do? The DNR says they will move on, yes they will after they are done feeding on the young deer. You can get rid of Coyotes, but not Timber Wolves. I don't even know the law about shooting a cougar.

Does and fawns also don't always run together in the early months for the reason of protecting the fawns from predators. The does often leave the fawns in a sanctuary and head out on their own for much of the day. I have seen numerous instance of this, sometimes walking right by fawns in our woods that have bedded down and think they are camoed from me in the weeds. Cool to get that close to them but I always keep my distance enough not to freak them out or spook them.

we hunt in Fergus/ Ottertail area. I have never seen a bear or wolf there in 40 plus years or heard of any being seen. I have seen yotes and last year one bobcat. I can see the yotes getting a couple but not that many.

I was up there this spring turkey hunting and saw a lot of does then while I was hunting. I couldn't help but notice how many I had seen that did not look pregnant...not even remotely.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
