      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 .

Not a big fan of that video. One died because he shot him the other will probably die also. Hmmmm.

Obviously the two bucks were locked together. Both deer could very well have died in a few days had they not interviened here. You don't see the rest of the video, and aren't sure of the other deer's outcome, not sure why everyone is so upset here....

my guess is the camera man has a tag also, I would rather not make the deer suffer.

These deer were obviously locked together. They would have both suffered days this way until dying painfully of exhaustion. One of them was put out of his misery and dispatched quickly. I'm sure the other was taken shortly after, if the hunter was alone he probably notified officials and recieved a permit to kill the other, or may have had a buddy along or nearby with a tag. Killing these bucks was much better than letting them suffer stuck together by their heads.

I sure hope that there was another tag available close by, because that was a risky thing to do otherwise. I would have probably done the same thing, but I know that if there wasn't another tag available, I would have been trying to seperate them, and just think how dangerous that would have been!

The way they were fighting, they obviously just got started. I'm sure this isn't the first time deer became locked while fighting and would more than likely unlocked soon after.

Awaiting the email with the rest of the story.

I had fantasized about that happening to me. What good luck, right? My confusion comes in when I see the bucks struggling and can't get away. No feeling of accomplishment in getting a nice deer anymore. It seems more like a mercy killing. To me anyway.

I likely would have done the same thing since there always seems to be an open buck tag around aside from my own. tongue.gif I just don't think I'd be real proud of it anymore.

maybe they waited until the live buck became exhausted and cut the antlers apart to free the live one.

Even an exhausted deer will still fight to get away if it sees a human coming close, and I think that it would be dangerous for the person to get that close to a struggling animal.

I guess we would have to see the whole video. I watched it again and it looks as though the two deer were not fighting at all, possibly exhausted from being locked together for sometime. Hard to say with only a few seconds of video, but is usually hard to approach two bucks in mid fight and get within 10-15 yards if they weren't exhausted.

Hey guys, I got this same video via email and the file name gave me a bit more info about where it came from. So I did a little research and found the source of the video and pictures. Here is a quote regarding the ultimate fate of those deer...

Quote:

"We couldn't just kill them both because we only had one tag between the two of us. So the plan after killing the one - was to cut the horn off of the other one and release him. We went to get the saw and another hunter with a tag showed up and then he killed the other buck."


Either way, its kinda a sad situation, I'm not sure what I would have done, but I probably would have gotten a CO involved. Although in the end, its likely both deer were not going to live through the ordeal anyway.

If you are interested in reading more etc. do a search on "hunttigerridge"

I would have shot one of the bucks also. What a story. I'd much rather have the rack on the wall, the meat in the freezer and a unique story to share than letting the coyotes and crows get a free meal. Let them fight me off a road kill! grin.gif

I received an e-mail from the man that put the video on UTube. He said they had planned on trying to cut the antlers off one buck that was in bad shape but ended up shooting both using the tag of another hunter.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them
