      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 .

DNR took our deer.

My younger brother went out last Friday and shot a little spike with his bow but it ran into a rufugee area. He and my older brother went and got two conservation officers and tried to track the deer down but never found him. The officers then said that if we were going to come back and look for him don't bring any guns or archery. So the next day we went back out there and searched again but without luck. The following morning my brother went and hunted for about 3 hours in his stand and saw a hiker poke his stick at something by the road. My brother then went to check it out and there it was the head of the spike he shot a couple days ago. Only him my older brother and the conservation officers knew about the deer in the refugee area. It would have been his first deer with his bow and someone had to ruin it. Oh well there's about a month and a half left hopefully it was for the better.

I understand that only you guys & the DNR officers new about the deer, but couldn't someone else have stumbled onto it & took it? Why would it have to be the CO's? It sure seems like there certainly could have been someone trespassing in the refuge that found it.

Just a thought cause why would someone risk getting caught in there? That place we hunt has too many CO's.

If it was a CO, they wouldn't have left just the head. They would have confiscated the whole animal. Besides, I would think the head is more valuable to the DNR so they can test for CWD and age the deer.

ok then why would the CO take your deer but leave the head?? Just a thought...You did say it is a refuge..people can still walk through the refuge I would imagine...Bad deal but at least it didn't go to waste!! Sounds like someone found a treat on the trail....Hopefully next time you can locate the kill before the scavengers do!!! wink.gif

I agree with Ozzie, you've got no proof that the DNR cut the head off your deer and took the body. In fact it sounds like someone took the deer and probably cut the head to try and claim it as a doe.

Maybe I should take the other side and say you must've found your deer and cut the head off and now you're lying to cover it up. Does that seem any more likely than the same CO's that helped you look for your deer came back to steal it without the head?!?

This thread should be deleted.

Maybe not delete the thread, but the DNR isnt going to leave body parts.

Heck, its illegal for the public to dump carcasses/parts.

Someone either found the deer you guys shot, or it was parts from a similar deer that just happened to be dumped near your spot.

If I knew I killed a deer and failed to find it, I would consider my hunt done, unless I had bonus tags. If I ever fail to retrieve a duck of pheasant (very rare, thankfully) I count that bird towards my bag.

just my .02

"That place has to many COs" ???? How many is that? Only if I was up to no good would that concern me.

Buzzsaw,

If they left the head, wouldn't it have to be a crazy deer "body" collecting cult???

I'm glad everyone sees the outragous nature of this accusation and realizes it make NO SENSE!!

I would like to thank the 2 CO's for stopping to help some young hunters locate a deer they shot. You can't always find them all, but a well placed shot ups your chances.

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
