      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 .

Most Unique Deer I Have Ever Seen

Recommended Posts

The Deer of a lifetime

This deer must have been in a lot of pain and probably glad he was shot. The antler actually grew out of his eye, and must have formed the knot afterwards. The eyeball is still in the deer's head just sunken back in his skull about 2 inches. Very unique. The hunter said he snuck up on his blind side.

Sorry, I just read you header.

I would say this buck was fighting with another and took a deep blow to the head and got stuck. I am sure he drug deer around, until antler feel off other deer.

I do not think it grew out of his head.

I could be wrong.

Still a very nice deer anyone to get a deer like this is lucky.

That is what it looks like to me too, Although the one sticking out of his eye would be a very unique racked deer as well.

I got that same e-mail last week. The story in my e-mail said that it was actually another antler growing out of his eye, not from getting stuck by another buck.

This is what was included with the e-mail:

Huge deduction for not being the same on both sides. Now, if the other eye ball had an antler growing out of it.. We are talking about a Huge deer. Should have left it another year to grow smile.gifgrin.gif

So not only did the antler grow out of the eye socket, it grew backwards, and also a bloody stump just magically appeared.

It's pretty obvious what happened here.

I agree.

And it is still bloody. Someone may have fabricating this too. Good way to get your picture in the news.

Happens all the time.

I don't believe it....

if its real, id say this antler grew out under the eye socket because you look at the end and its like a drop tine and there is no base to it if it was another antler that went into the eye.

that is crazy. I have never seen something like that before. It looks like he was in a fight and lost the battle. That is very crazy picture.

not asking for exact info, but what area was that deer shot in? I showed my dad the pic and he was wondering where it was shot.

Thanks

Buck was shot on October 23 near Gardiner, KS, and is rumored to gross-score 190.

He must be rigorred up for his head to stay up like that, also notice his front legs tucked under like he is resting, but his hind legs are sideways. Must have died in that position, and stiffened up...still looks like an antler went in, not out...but who knows...could the bloody and dangling stuff be velvet??? crazy.gif

If you study the photo - it really doesnt appear to be an antler from another deer that got stuck. I mean the antler coming out of the eye - (or really near is more like it) is very strangely shaped - not at all uniform like it would be if ithad come off another deer. The tine that is growing upward from the eye area looks like it has been pressing on the side of the face as it grew...it sure looks like a natural growth to me. As far as the "bloody stump" on the end...I think thats just part of the growth on this antler...I am sure we will hear more details on this story (I sure hope so!!)but my vote is very strong that it is a "natural growth" coming out from the eye area...and not part of an antler that got "torn off" from another deer....

I am with you on that observation. I think if it was indeed from another buck that it would have broken off a lot cleaner than it appears in the picture. And if it did come from another buck it would be a pretty unique deer judging by the one coming out of the eye.

I third it's a natural growth. That "bloody stump" is not what the end of an antler would even look like. They are connected directly to the skull plate, it would be a flat end, not hoof-like looking. Amazingly unique deer.

sorry I am not buying that it is growing out of his eye socket at all. Yes it is shaped weird but no way. (also it is easy to photoshop pics)

i have been looking at this for a day or two, and i would have to say that im 100% sure that it came from another deer. There is blood on the end of the horn that is going through the eye. it had to come from another buck.

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.

      I've been by a time or two trying to figure out which place is yours.   I was out on wakemup last night too.   Got nothing, on crawlers.  Started out at merry go round, went to "picnic island" (little island east/south of taylors).  rigged along edge of those two humps in like 18-25 feet.   Musky guys were coming so I turned.  They turned too, chunking baits in the vicinity of my boat.   Then some guys in a pontoon pulled up and anchored in front of me  and threw out bobbers.   Fished a while longer, and it was getting sort of dark so went home.   Weird.  I've been on those humps a bunch of times this year, and suddenly I get company.   And, even though it is a pretty big area they gravitated to where I was.  I'll be out today too, so if you need help with supervision, let me know.    But I will drive by to check out the new construction.

      Been getting a few on the weed line, early am when there's a little breeze, since the surface temps started coming down. That was about this month's full moon, for me. A very slow troll, fishing vertically, & just a 1/16 oz. jig.
