      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

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.

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      i went out for a couple hours yesterday looking for grouse.  The buddy i was with never has been hunting for grouse or woodcock.  We only saw 1 grouse with no chance for a shot but got both woodcock that flushed.

      As MB said, high water tends to spread fish out and push them tighter to the banks in any slower water they can find.  A "normal" year with low water in October can be ridiculously, almost unfairly good in the river when you find the smallies. There's a reason it's mandatory catch and release now, as they pile up in deeper, slower water and can be quite vulnerable if/when you find them.   That being said, the difference in high vs. low water is not as pronounced above the dams (either the 10th St, Sartell, Little Falls, Blanchard, etc.) as it is below them.  At least in my experience, anyways.
