      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 signs

Recommended Posts

harvey lee

I will pin this at the top so all can reference this for a wounded deer for blood and hair to know where you hit the deer.

Here are some tips for sign when tracking a wounded deer. Take note of blood color and hair color and this will help you know where you hit the deer.

BLOOD COLOR

Lung hit: Blood that appears frothy with bubbles.

Liver or Kidney: Very dark blood.

Gut or intestinal: Blood that has particles of vegetation.

Heart and arteries: Blood will appear a dark maroon color (like the liver or kidney).

Flesh wound: Blood will appear a light red.

Deer Hair

Side and neck: Hair is short and fine (1-3/4 inches) brown with black tips and gray near the bottom.

Brisket: Hair is curly, up to 2 inches long, stiff and are whitish-gray with black tips.

Shoulder: Hair is wavy up to 2-1/2 inches long with two bands of black near the tips and brown through the rest.

Heart: Long and fine usually 3-1/2 to 4 inches in length, black tipped, tan below and the rest gray.

Stomach: Hair is slightly wavy, coarse and up to 2-1/2 inches long and will usually be all white.

Hindquarter: Wavy hair usually 1-1/2 inches long with brown and black tips, gray below that and gray at the bottom.

Chest: Hair is fine and wavy, usually about 1-1/2 inches long. They are black tipped with black or tan, followed by a tan and a grayish-white at the base.

Great reference Harvey. I will add to not rely on length of hair much since it was cut off short from your broadhead or bullet and varies with size of the deer.

I agree but most times one can see the color of the tips of the hair. Sometimes at the site where the deer was shot one can find chunks of hair from the exit hole.

Like a road sign? It could have a big buck walking upright with crutches! Look at the time of this post and you'll understand my state of mind.

question...

Background, we live on a dead end road with a mile long driveway, our 10 acre farmstead is surrounded with corn and a little woods.

Sat. night my wife was mowing the lawn and up our driveway a small doe walked right into the yard, she stated that it was bleeding out of the mouth area. It walked 20 feet from the house and when the dogs saw it they chased it back into the corn it then proceeded to bolt back out of the corn and ran in between our house and our detached garage and back down the driveway.

Was this deer sick, we have lived in the spot for 7 years and never had a deer in our yard, it was really strange. We see a lot of deer and I have hunted within shouting distance of my yard but this was way different. I asked the closest neighbors if they had hit a deer with their vehicle. I also wonder if it had been chased by dogs, or yotes. I know that my dogs were in the yard at the time playing fetch with the kids so I know they weren't the culprits.

Any clues?

really strange...

I would guess it could have been sick, wounded or cut its mouth or tongue. Who knows.

I hear that on the southern U.S. coast line they have found a strain of "Gator Aids".

There is such a disease as cat AIDS. I just learned about this a month or so ago and did some research to find that it is true. Being a cat owner, I wanted to know more, particularly to make sure it was not transmittal to humans (it's not).

[why dont they take down that deer crossing sign by the orchard,it seems that if they had the deer cross somewhere else not so many would be run over]

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
