      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 .

There is a dude in ND I know that always states I wont shoot a buck unless he has a rack as large as a Christmas tree, and he means it. he does not shoot many deer.

Walnut is the one that sticks out the most. We had gotten pics of him many times over the years and would see him seems like every year on the eve of opener, then he would disappear. No reports of him getting shot, so he must've died of old age. If anyone in our party would've gotten him, he was definitely gone on the wall. His brow tines, and his shortest tines, were over 8 inches and all the rest were over 9 inches.

Droopy George. We found his sheds one year. The next hunting season we got him. He is on the wall now. Scored very well at the deer classic.

Old Grand Dad. Big surprise where us geniuses came up with that one. There is one that we call the Fawnz, not because he is young, but technically he is a huge spike, he actually looks like a pronghorn Antelope. I had a shot at him one year, but hit a branch with my arrow. He has main beams and that is it. They are so thick you can't get your hands around them, but he has no tines at all. They are solid white. Its pretty cool. One other guy has seen him and that was last year, but he didn't take it.

We had "Ol' Ivory" at our camp for years. Big as a steer. He didn't have the biggest rack in the world by any means, but they were polished. He was just massive in size. We always saw him during bow season and out of range. During rifle season he always just disappeared. Legendary.

Years ago, down by Elba Mn., there were a couple well known bucks. One was named Elvis and the other Garth.

we caught "devil buck" on camera one night the sun gave his eyes a redish evil lookign stare hes at least 14pointer no S***in ya! "dumb and dumber" were 2 little basket bucks that were postive were twins...they never really spit up even during the rut and they loved to waltz around hay fields in broad daylight. Both of them got shot... they were the only bucks we ever named or consistenly saw.

the wobbler...his rack is so big and heavy that when he trots he can barely hold his head up! also his body is so big that his butt wobbles side to side.

the breeder....no buck was getting a piece of action without him stepping in and taking over..a beast and he loved to fight.

the prayer buck...nice typical 10 pointer but all the tips of his tines touched...from behind his racked looked like two hands together like doing a prayer.

Snort.

Legendary big old buck my Dad and bud's saw for the first time about 20 years ago. Everytime they saw him his gunts were so deep he sounded like a pig snorting... hence the name. He was long gone when I started hunting... to our knowledge no one ever got him. My dad still talks about his brow tines... 12" for sure he says.

We use the term Bullwinkle or Mr. Big for any decent bucks we see.

We had a little forky that we first saw by a place we call "the pothole", so when we kept seeing him & seeing him we started calling him the pothole buck. We eventually named him Roy. I almost shot him with my bow a week before gun season. He was coming out of the woods with about 10 minutes of light left & his left side to me, he was a small buck, so he just looked like a nice average doe. Sometime throughout the last week since I'd seen him he'd broken his left side off. I was drawn & ready to shoot at 12 yards when his head got clear of the backdrop of branches enough that I could see the other side of his fork. During second weekend of gun season we needed deer & made a drive. A friend who rarely hunts with us shot him. We kept giving him grief about shooting Roy.

We've seen a nontypical this year we call the Beast & a big very symetrical 10 we call Beauty. No shot opps on them though.

The Elk. Dad watched him broadside at 200 yards for 20 minutes a couple years back. We hunt in the shotgun zone, so he had no shot. He had a 120 class 8 pointer come out underneath him, but he passed on it, thinking if there is any chance that the Elk is gonna come a little closer....We saw him 4 times over the next 3 years do stupid, stupid things yet he always got away with it. We hope he was a lover.....

Maybe they were really smart things considering he was still alive and well; and you guys were still relegated to just watching him get away??? wink.gif

Funny how many bucks named "Peace Sign" that guys actually kill would have been named Big Hoss, Dolly Parton, or Bruiser had they missed it. tongue.gif

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels
    • Wanderer
      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
