      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 .

Potential World Record Whitetail!!!

Yea, I got the same email. Here is the email and photo. One UGLY buck, but I'd still shoot it grin.gif

faa39514.jpg

Somewhere in Iowa
This deer was just taken by the boy on the right. The boy has muscular dystrophy and is in a wheelchair, yet he managed to shoot the buck all by himself. This buck has one base coming out of the head that is 16 inches
around. About 2 inches up it splits into 2 beams and the deer's C-1 measurements are just shy of 10. The deer carried the mass all the way to the end and had just over 68 inches of mass. I believe the brow tines
on this buck are roughly 14 and 11 inches and there is a 12 inch forked point coming forward from between the brows. The sheds from this particular buck in a preserve from last year and when he shed he also shed the entire bone between both antlers as well. There is about a 1" piece of extra bone from
his skull on the inside of both sheds, which explains this years unique rack."

Pretty sure that's not the deer they are talking about. The big buck that was taken near Albia, IA had a very wide and tall rack with a drop down tine on one side. No new pictures of the deer have been released yet as the father has been negotiating with different Magazines for the rights to the photo's and story. A guy that works with my company lives about 20 miles from Albia, IA and is in MN doing some business, I showed him that picture and it's not the big Albia buck. He has seen the mounted "shedds" from the big buck found 2 years ago. Supposedly the big buck was not seen during 2002 and thought to maybe have been killed or died somehow. The father found the 2002 year shedds later but told no one. I guess the land the deer was shot on is owned by the young kids Grandfather. Sounds like the DNR was notified almost immediately of the big buck kill and did interviews with the hunter. It will be pretty awesome to see the actual pictures of the "Albia" buck when they become available.

I believe you're correct doubleUcubed. It's amazing what photo editing software can do. It even fools the human eye.

No idea if this is the actual buck, but this is the email going around. I just copied the email directly - could very well be a fake.

Congragulations to the young man who shot this deer! Time will tell if it's a world record or not, I'd hate to see this turn into a debate. The young man took a great deer and we should all be happy for him and his dad.

Congragulations again!!!

I know we can't post links, but if you do a search for albia buck, you'll see pictures of the deer taken while it was still living. There's a lot of controversy over the nontypical pic, many deer forums are claiming it's a doctored photo.

As we were talking yest. about the Albia buck my friend said that last year some of the big hunting supply companies had least like around 12,000 acres of land in the Albia area in order to get one of their "hunters" the opportunity to get the deer. He also indicated that the photo's/most of the photo's taken of the "Abia" buck were taken via Tresspassing!! Then sold to whome ever to be published. Sounded like a lot of the locals were not too happy with the "hunting ethics/tactics or lack of by some non locals with money". Just some opinions from a guy I work with who lives 20 miles from where the buck was taken. Great deer and I'm very glad for the young man who got the deer of a lifetime!!

That is not the new "World Record" I thought it was too, There is a story about it in thee new outdoors weekly. You can read about it on there web site. That is still a big derr. There will be rumors no matter what when a big buck is killed. I was around 3 years ago when a huge buck was shot by a muzzel loader hunter near Bemidji, There were rumors about it being shot on a feeder, at night from the road.
It is a good story, I missed him at 20 yards ( that still hurts)
Then he ran over the ridge and I heard one shot, He came running back and died 60 yards from me. If someone tells me how I can psot a photo of this deer. I think it is probably a state record with muzzle loader but the guy didnt want it scored and didnt care? He had no idea how big it was when he shot, he just new it was a buck.

A co worker just printed off an interview with D. L. the father of the young man who shot the deer. Doesn't go into much detail and no pictures of the current deer. If you search the net you can find the interview.

According to Outdoors Weekly, Nov 7 issue:

"The photo of the boy and his deer shown here (above in this post)was actually harvested in a 500-acre enclosure by a boy with multiple sclerosis and is not eligible for the Boone and Crockett official world record book." Am guessing "enclosure" means game farm or something similiar.

The actual alleged record deer was shot by a 15 year old Iowa kid and North American Whitetail has an exclusive contract with the family to publish the pictures and story first. The photos and story will appear in the January 2004 Edition of North American Whitetail.

Based on where Albia is, I'll bet that the kid is wearing a Iowa Hawkeye attire. Go Hawks!!!!

The do have a trail cam photo of the record deer taken in 2001-2002. You can see it at the Outdoornews.com in the news section, in an article titled "World record buck myths set straight."

This is a picture of the Supposed New World Record Deer the Albia Buck as it was know by, this picture was take 2 years ago. I guess the deer had something like 44 points pretty increadable especially for a 15 year old kid.

I read that there have been no pictures release of it after the kill yet. But, I found this picture on the Boone and Crockett web page and the had an article that pretty much confirmed the this monster had been taken.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.
    • NELS-BELLS
      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels
    • Wanderer
      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.

      Anyone else think the number of people ice fishing in the last 5 years has grown greatly in our area? To me it has and to me it seems alot harder now to find a spot of your own, or spots that have been pasted down on a lake that there arnt 5 to 50 people trying to fish! Gps doesn't help the cause either, I wonder what the future of ice fishing and the fish/ crappie population is going to look like in the next 5 to 10 years. Last year kinda shocked me to by the number of people out partying out on cedar and even the sound of subs going by in cars on the ice.. like really??! Could see the look of what is wrong with people from dads and familys out with their kids. Sorry about the rant
    • Bass Thumb
      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.
