      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 .

I too cant see the picts.. but for reference.. it usually take a pretty darn good 8 point buck to make Pope... It either has to have a lot of mass and a decent spread or tall tines.. 125 inches is quite a bit.. or a decent 10 point should make it.

I think you would be surprised at what makes a Pope & Young deer.

Here are a couple that have qualified:

This deer had 8 points and went into the books at 140 3/8

Roush_whitetail.jpg

Another 8 Point P&Y 138 2/8

Zirkle_whitetail.jpg

Just made it....128 4/8

Peperis_whitetail.jpg

125 2/8

Novak_whitetail.jpg

So now lets see your deer and compare wink.gif

Although 10 points are ideal and will really help get you in these 8's are just fine grin.gif

I am chasing a 10 on my land right now that my taxidermy buddy estimates at 140. I am sure many can agree when I say scoring a deer from a picture can be tricky but a trained eye can usually get pretty close. I don't have a trained eye by any means that is why I send all my pics to my buddy!

Thanks for the post luc--- its best to look at deer picts and know the score... But you can see all those deer I would call above average 8's... they either have mass or tine length... I however wouldnt have guess that top pict to score that high... awesome deer!!!! Those G3's are way way way impressive! Hence probably where it gets its score.! Do you happen to know inside spread on that top deer?

I was surprised by that one as well! I do not know the spread. I just found these as good true verified examples from the P&Y site. Thought it would help to actually see some racks with some numbers. It is very tough for me to gauge....I just see antlers smirk.gif When other people look they see numbers. Wouldn't it be so cool to get a P& Y buck! Hanging on the wall with a ribbon! I bet you or I would be telling that story until the day we died! grin.gif I know I would!

Not sure If I can do this but here is a score sheet to get a more of an idea of what we are looking for:

Pics can be decieving, I didn't think that the buck I shot would score 168. He is a nice buck, but the pictures don't do his mass justice. Judging by the pics of my deer, I would say that he was a 140-150 class buck, we measured twice and added them up three times, he scored 168 every time. The big deciever is mass and main beam length. Its hard to tell main beam length and mass from a pic. Most people will tell you that a 25+ main beam length will get you in, mine was only 22 in. His mass was horizonatal, not vertical, so in the pics, he doesn't look that massive but he really is. At any rate, still all nice deer. I suppose you could practice your lasso skills, rope them, score them, then go get em. grin.gif

Once again, LuciandTim, thanks for all your pictures and just looking at mine, the look like they are in the 125-140 range but like you said I dont have the best eye for that stuff so just my guess. Thanks,

onlyslabs

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.

      Total agree Topwater mix rules for a kid learning to muskie fish.  Kayak ~~~ At 14 years can by now control the craft & cast pretty well so mix of small to medium size bucktails and a glider or two kick it any time.  Host of things to purchase out there but really no need. Keep it simple, have fun, learn the lake, the fish, the food....he will enjoy it an be hooked for long long time.  And will he succeed ~ YES indeed ~ 96 & 3/4 percent ~  guaranteed.   : )     Keep on rocken!    T

      I used to fish Lake Shakopee regularly.  I did awesome catching largemouth bass there with good average size, and never had any competition.  A couple years ago, they did some construction upstream by the start of the river at the base of Vineland Bay for road construction and they had to drop water levels to do it.  The flow rate never came back to normal.  Then they took out Buckmore Dam in the state park at the base of Lake Ogechie which also altered the flow through that area.  I tried it once each the past two years and only caught 1 bass each time, in addition to about 40 pike.  Every single pike was the same size, about 20-22 inches.  Just snake after snake.  Slime city.  I think the alteration of the river flow through that area has permanently ruined the bass fishing there.

      Just goes to show that if you put the time in to eplore new places just to see if there is anything in said body of water..... it can have very good payouts. The body of water that we got the eyes out of i have never fished before. Grew up next to it basically its only 10 min from the house. When they started hitting all fish were caught one after another i have never had walleyes through the ice bite like they did. A new experiance and i was able to share it with friends. Hope everyone is being safe out there. 
    • gimruis
      There's no reason to go on the frozen lake when you are catching fish like that in the open water of a river.
    • crappie king 42
      No this is not red lake. This was a local spot in the cambridge princeton milaca area.  Nice solid 14-17 inch walleyes nice and healthy and they tasted delicious

      8Went out locally here thanksgiving mornin on three inches of solid ice hot into the eyes really well. A week later whole place was open water again so we went out in the kayaks got 14 eyes than went out again now that ice is back went to same lake and had a rough weekend we only managed to get three all weekend. Went out on all local lakes they are all sketchy at best. Few more days to solidify that bad ice and should be good to go. Went to shakopee in onamia and there was a solid 10 inches out there.
