      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 .

Puss on deer's brain

Recommended Posts

protiller

Ok so this is weird....The buck I shot this fall had a bunch of matter in his right ear and some matter in the corner of his eye. I didn't think much of it than he might have just gotten over an ear infection. What got wierd was when I picked up his head to take pictures and puss came out at the base of his antler. So I thought...well, maybe he got his brains rattled while fighting earlier this fall. So, when I cut off his antlers I noticed a bunch of puss on the right lobe of his brain and blood clots underneath his skull. So, now I've come to deduce that I shot some sick (Contact Us Please) type of deer.

Has anyone else ever seen something like this in the past?

Did you dig around in the head or top of the neck at all? The buck I shot with the rifle this year had 6 in. of arrow shaft and a broadhead buried under his spine. I found it when I was taking out the backstrap and on the right side he had a lot of puss from the infection. Dig around a little bit and see what you find. Other than that, I'm not sure what it could be.....

I have to agree when I read that comment I pretty well lost it. Crude, but very funny.

That, my friend, is one of the funniest things I have read in some time. I actually had to scroll back to the topic to get your drift. I am far too young and have not married long enough (and now ashamed, too) to not have picked up on that sooner. Thank You.

I was wondering why the subject changed when he started talking about matter coming out of the ear and antler. Then I had to re-read the title and got it grin.gif

Sounds like an infection to me.

LOL! I'm actually crying....That's the funniest thing I've seen on FM in a long time.

You say pa-tah-doh, I say Poh-ta-toe

Wow.

Allright....I would have to guess there was a fight and that deer lost. If you actually saw how many hogs, sheep, and beef cattle had puss pockets on their bodies you would be amazed. These can be results of internal infections, infected scars, injection needles that broke off, you name it. Thankfully we have one of the best food protection systems in the world and you don't see that in your little celophane waxed paper meat world.

But it does happen in nature. Shouldn't be anything wrong with the meat and you aren't eating brain matter anyways (I hope)

Now, as for what's really on all of our brains.... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You know that was my first thought too, but I decided to keep my mind out of the gutter grin.gif mainly because I didn't want to be the only one that thought that way grin.gif now that I know I'm not, I appreciate the humor....

Oh, you found some pus in his head. I'm guessing its from an old injury that got infected bullet, broad head, etc. I have seen many deer in the past with wounds that are infected and it's usually isolated to the area of injury.

That's kind of what I thought because his one antler was slighlty loose when I picked it up. Plus, puss came out from the base of that antler. But the wierd thing of it was that when I cut off his rack there was a pocket of puss underneath his skull, on the lobe of his brain. And on the bottom side of his skull there was a massive blood clot. I'm guessing he got his butt kicked while sparring earlier this fall.

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.

      OK I will post a report just on the offhand chance that someone else still reads these things.  Fished at Birchdale afternoon of Saturday 10/21 and morning of 10/22.  Fishing was good Saturday for keeper sized fish, nothing big but caught 29 fish in 6 hours,  mostly nice keepers 14 to 19 inches long and not too many dinks.  Sunday morning fishing was slow and then it got super windy so pulled the plug early and went home.  Jigging in shallower spots, could not troll crankbait because of debris on line.  Others had mixed success.  Shiners were around.

      10/22/17     Hunted water in central MN from a boat blind both days. Despite gusty south winds one day and temps not exactly October-like, new ducks were around that moved in during a cold, clear night with a west wind during the week. Calendar migrators from the Dakotas and southern Canada. Saw eleven species and harvested ten--typical late October mixed bag. A mixed, medium-sized decoy spread with a crosswind on a point with the sun behind us was the ticket. An Avery Quick Set blind with fast grass mats and two Lucky Duck HD spinners rounded out the set-up. Subtle mallard quacks, chuckles, and drake whistles mixed with goose clucks, pintail and wigeon whistles locked up birds nice and close--no loud contest calling. Cold weather and West and NW winds this week should get a bunch of new birds in--probably a mixed bag of species still. We saw or heard eight flocks of specklebellies migrating on Sunday. Look for a show about one of these days of hunting on my You Tube channel (Fishing and Hunting the North Country) by later in the week.  Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I pulled my boat for the winter today. Sure hated to have to do that, but have tons of stuff to do to get ready for the fall, winter stuff! Cliff

      Good day!  Keep the reports coming! We’re islanders and had to pull out a week ago. On my last day out by myself I boated a thick 28” walleye to close my season. We brought filets Home so my old fisherman, 95 year old dad could enjoy a good fry,  I still enjoy reading about the lake so keep reporting. Thanks, Dick

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).
