      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 .

Thanks! It's from the Blue Hills area near Rice Lake, WI. He should be on my wall by late May/early June. The best part about it is that I got the mount for free! I took it to Upland Taxidermy in Hayward because they were running a contest--the biggest buck (# of points + inside spread) gets a free mount. They also do great work there.
The buck was hit high by a bow hunter (at very close range) and was on its death bed when I shot it. The blood was water thin, the liver was 4x the normal size, and all of the vitals had large black spots on them. It looked like the arrow caught the top of a lung, but it appeard that happened as long as a month before I shot it. Despite its poor health, it still dressed at 206 lbs. and was chasing a doe!

That's great buck Cleo! I'd put that hog on my wall in a heartbeat. Interesting story too. They are incredibly hardy creatures. I'm glad you were able to harvest it before it died.

Were the internal organs really smelly? I'd have thought if the buck had been shot as much as a month earlier it would have been really gangrenous.

Sam-
When I found him, I figured I gut shot him because of the smell. Thought I was going to lose my cookies. I was happy to see I hit him in the heart and a lung.

Actually, it was closer to Rice Lake. I am originally from Cameron, live in Superior, and have a brother living in Hayward. He did some advertising for the taxidermist, so that is how I found out about the contest and the quality of the guy's work.

We have a theory that for every big buck you see, there are two that you never see unless you are very lucky. It is a theory we believe more and more with each season!

I’ve hunted the Blue Hills for almost 20 years now. I’ve never seen a buck that big alive over there. He’s a beauty. If you drove him up to Hayward can I assume you took him in the Birchwood area?
