      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 .

Back yard giant!!

Here is a deer that is in a buddy's back yard. This is last nights pic. I have lived around here all my life and do not recall seeing one this big and with such long tines. I would guess he might be a booner, if not he is close. What are your thoughs on the score of this buck? Oh and also this should get you rifle hunters excited!!

Way more than P&Y minimum...

I think Booner might depend on if he's a 5*6 or a 6*6 and how wide he is. Hard to tell from that angle if that last point is there on his left and also hard to tell how wide. SURE SHOOTER THOUGH! I'd take a wild guess @ 164 3/8" because he is really tall...

If I could just win the lotto I would make an offer he could not refuce.

He is a 5X6 and may not be 20 wide but his beams are long as are the tines. He makes an adault doe look like a late fawn so he is very big, takeing away from antler size in view. Also I know of a 180 something that was shot and he does not have much on this deer. I really think he would make 170 or more.

If this deer gets taken in this area I should hear about it and I will seek out the score.

Since its a 5x6 and one gets the deduction for the 1 point, I would guess it would nor make the B & C book. Very nick buck but it takes a pretty good deer without and points deducted to make it.

I have a almost perfect 6x6 that scored 172 and its not quite that tall but its rack is very even. Mass plays a huge roll in the final score.

Good luck chasing that bruiser. smile.gif

I do the math in my head and come up with 183 gross, 175 net, I think he makes it, he's got everything a booner needs, long beams, long tines, and lots of mass

I'd put him in the 170-175 gross range. Very nice deer. Love the color of those antlers too.

Who cares what he scores! that is an awesome buck, and you should try to get him and put him in your own trophy book! And on your wall! grin.gif I dont get into scoreing because when its all said and done, its always about hunt, and numbers really dont matter! I think scoreing takes the value away from a great deer.

I understand the whole scoring thing, but I tend to agree. If I like the bucks rack & it's big or at least definitely bigger than I've ever shot I don't really care about the score either. To me it takes something away from the hunt when guys just start talking about them by how many inches of antler they have. There's nothing really wrong with it, it just seems a little, I don't know, sterile maybe.

Either way that is one awesome buck. I was curious to know if he was a booner or not as well, just to try to understand how big they have to be. I know they gotta be really BIG.

I think gross score is good because it gives people an idea of what a deer really has, but I think that people that get too NET crazy often dont give the deer the credit it deserves!

It takes a true GIANT to Net over 170 B&C! I think this buck is close? His Brow tines are very short and the fact that hes a 6x5 is going to hurt. He might gross over 170 but I bet he doesnt net it. What an awsome buck though!

What a STUD of a buck.....good mass and length, HUGE body....not big on the scoring thing....but I know he would make my Trophy Book. Good luck with him.....I know if I saw him I would fall out of the tree!!

I have to agree with bigbucks. I shot what I considered a very nice ten pointer last year. Most of the tines were about 9 inches, but he's not much outside the ears, and one tine was only 1 inch. So he's more like a 9. At any rate, I was thrilled. My neighbor had me go to the deer classic with his monster, and get them scored. We both came away disappointed at our scores and it taints the feeling a bit. I guess I would've rathered I didn't know. I assumed mine was 150 class, but it was 137 net. The deductions killed it... and my fantasy football buddies were all jealous, and now they're like "137, oh, I thought it was bigger than that...." Just diminishes the elated feeling a bit.

Kinda like last years twins or this years rockies... They go on this incredible end-of-the-year run, but get swept in their last series... leaves a bad taste in your mouth.

Like you think your girlfriend is a trophy, and then you get her tested and she has clamidia, better off if you didn't know. tongue.gif

snapcrackpop,

What I said was statement, not a question. You should take note of the difference. I wasnt looking for an answer. Just throwing out my point of view.

Beautiful deer... booner or not! Gross mid 70's but only scorable as a 5x5.

remember that guy that was on here last year, did a guess the score with one that had been scored. He promised the winner a shot at a 140 class deer... near chatfield I think. Anyone know how that turned out?

Not trying to argue, but...

"Who cares what he scores!"

That is a question, whether you got the punctuation right or not.

Gofishleech started this thread and was curious what it would score. Not trying to pick on you, was just trying to keep the topic on point. Sorry about the rub.

I don't get worked up much about "scores" either (just look at my buck from this year). A nice buck is a nice buck, and this one is great!

I believe you knew how it was supposed to be interperated, as most of us have used that phrase as a statement many times in our lives.

Yes, it is a nice buck.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      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
