      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 .

One shot, two holes.

confused.gifMy hunting buddy shot a doe fawn on Saturday. He aimed for the neck but busted the doe's brain out. We didn't see any wounds on the neck at all. When we skinned it, it had a hole going from one side of the base of the throat and out the other with fresh blood between the skin and meat. However, there was no entry or exit wounds on the skin at all. How is this possible? 1) The base of the neck is too far away from the head for the bullet to have hit both. 2) There is no entry/exit wound on the deer's neck skin but underneath the skin is an entry and exit wound in the meat. 3) The wound could not have been an old would with healed skin because of fresh blood in the fascial (sp?) tissues and it is a fawn.

The buddy was using Winchester's Ballistic Silvertip bullets in .300 Win Mag.

This is definitely one of those things which makes you scratch you head and utter the word "huhh?".

Powerstroke

The first deer I ever shot I was making a neck shot with a 20 gauge slug. The slug entered at the base of the neck, ricochetted off of either the shoulder or the spine and deflected up the neck. The slug exited on the other side of the neck at the base of the skull. The slug traveledover 18inches within the deer's neck.

I could find an obvious hole because of the slug, but don't be concerned if you can't find your entry hole. I've had that problem before. Entry holes on rifle shots are usually quite small, especially on pointy tipped bullets.

Sounds like the bullet could have framented on the skull and then traveled under the skin into the neck regions.

Did you find any fragments when skinning?

You'd be amazed at what those bullets will do when they hit hard material. I'd guess some it was caused by some type of fragmentation. Pieces of the jacket can travel all over once there is an impact.

Powerstroke,

The first buck I ever shot with my 12 gauge did about the same thing, hit it about the top of the shoulder, to the front & exited somewhere near the white throat patch. He went down pretty hard, that was at about 20 yards.

Didn't find any fragments. I know that that bullet turns into a gernade upon impact with bones but the holes in the neck was just too perfect (round) and penetrated both sides of the base of the throat to be fragments: however, it could still be a possibility.

I shot a bear from a stand a few years ago that took a double hit. I shot it down through the top of the skull and the bullet exited the bottom of the head. I must have ricosheted off a rock in the ground because there was an entrance hole in the bottom of the chest and I found my mushroomed slug(.338 Win. Mag) in the top of the shoulder against the hide. I weighed it and it had only lost about 10 grains of lead.Sierra slugs are well made. smile.gif

My buddy shot a buck with a 12ga. slug at 20 yards. The slug passed completely through the deer right behind the shoulder. As we were skinning the deer, we noticed another hole in the neck. What we found in that hole was the Sabot "wad". It actually penetrated the skin and sunk an inch or so into the flesh. He was using Winchester Partition Gold slugs.

Sounds like the same bullet that killed JFK- apparently its magic! wink.gif

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      any luck there? i've never had luck. hoping to break my unlucky streak soon.

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe

      There were 5 maybe 6 boats over at the resort Thursday - Sunday. Heard they were doing some hunting too. Pretty quiet on the bay, most of the docks & lifts are out. Probably going to get real quiet after you show up.

      1) Lumen (lm) Lumen is the international(SI) unit of luminous flux, a measure of overall light emitted by a light source. 2) Candela (cd) Candela is the international(SI) unit of luminous intensity, a measure of light emitted by a light source in a particular direction.
      Any given light source will have different luminous intensities in different directions considered.
      [candela = lumen/solid angle] 3) Beam Angle [Unit : degree] Beam angle is the angle between two directions for which the luminous intensity is 50% of the maximum intensity as measured in a plan through the nominal beam center-line. The beam angle of a lamp gives an idea of how the light beam spread away form the beam center. 4) LUX (lx) Lux is the international(SI) unit of illuminance, a measure of light arriving at a surface, 1 lumen per square foot equals 1 foot-candle, while 1 lumen per square meter equals 1 lux.
      [lux = lumen/m2] 5) Color Temperature / Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) A black-Body radiator will have different color when it is heated up to different temperature(in kelvin). The temperature at which the heated black-body radiator matches the color of the light source is the color temperature of the light source. 6) Color Rendering Index (CR) Color rendering index, ranged from 0-100, measures a light source's ability to reproduce the color of various objects being lit by reference light source, black body radiator (CRI=100) 7) Efficacy (lm/W) Efficacy is the efficacy of a light source to convert electricity power to light expressed in lumen output per unit power input (watt)
      [Efficacy = lumen / wattage] 8) Dimming Not all lighting products are designed for dimming function. None-dimming LED lighting product will cause unpredictable result and may affect the life time of the products. The below figure shows the typical input current variation while adjusting the DC voltage input to dimming and none-dimming product.
