      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 .

Deer video

Recommended Posts

Some friends of mine in Iowa were pheasant hunting a few weeks ago & came across 2 bucks with their antlers locked; one was dead and had been dead for quite a while. They took a video with a camera phone as they separated the antlers and let the live deer go. The link to the video is below; it takes about 14 min to watch and if you don't like rough language you should turn the volume down. The quality of the video isn't that great as it was taken with a cellphone camera and there was a lot of moving around. Notice the state of decomposition at the end of the clip. You may never see anything like this again.

You will need to have Quicktime 6.5 or greater and RealPlayer10 to watch it, and both will have to download additional plugins to view the .3g2 format. Windows versions should do that automatically, but I haven't been able to find the plugin for the Linux version yet.

THank you for sharing that video. THat would be crazy. Im impressed at how they handled the situation.

The only thing that could have made it cooler was if they could have tagged the ear with somehting saying to contact them if and when it would have been shot.

Very cool video.

First of all, Get a clue and remember this is a family forum. I hope this video gets deleted. Everyone is acting like juvenile delinquents. You should be ashamed to have posted it. Irresponsible, degrading and immature!!!

russ,

I disagree. Yes, they are young kids who were excited and didn't know exactly what to do at first. And yes you heard some cussing going on...big deal.

In the end they did the right thing and let the deer loose. If they wouldn't have done that it would have died along with the other buck. You can give the whole mother nature's plan argument, but I am still glad to see the buck run free.

I too agree they did the right thing by releasing the animal. Thats not what is offensive. knowing this is a family forum the video should have been kept to themselves. Young hunters or not it showed lack of responibility and common sense.

russ I think you are way out of line. They are younger guys and act like it. They did a great thing for that buck by helping him out and letting him go. Without them he would have died a slow miserable death.

Thanks for sharing the video and tell those guys they did a great job!!!

Russ, I understand that there are many people who don't like to hear swearing-- that's why I noted that if you don't want to hear that kind of language you should turn the volume down. It's not my intent to offend others.

I think that the video should be shared for it's value regarding how things happen in nature, and this is something that most of us never have seen nor will see again. That language is a part of our society, whether we like it or not, and in this case we have the option of turning off the sound.

My bad everyone. I inadvertantly missed the sentence warning of the language. Once again, I totally agree with the releasing the animal. That truly is a sight not many get to witness.

Wow! I kind of felt bad for him. Glad the guys let him go- shows more sportsmanship than slitting its throat. Congrats on the find!

They are definitely to be commended! If you are telling me you never let expletives out at an intense moment of excitement like that (especially at that age) then I'd say you weren't being honest with yourself or anyone else.

At first I was a little upset that it took them so long to get around to freeing them, but after they'd been locked for lord knows how many days, the extra 10 minutes probably wasn't that big a deal.

I'm saving that video!

The reason it took so long to start separating them was that they were waiting for other members of their group to come and help-- needed more hands. They had to break the racks to get them free.

Is the problem that the video won't download or that it won't play?

If it won't download, it could be a number of things-- try this, assuming you're using Internet Explorer, click Tools, then Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab, then Restore Defaults. close IE then open & try it again.

If it won't play, you probably don't have the latest version of Real Player. go to: http://www.real.com

Click the buttons for free download, then install it.

That link is the only place in the world that it's posted for download. The download should start when you click on the link. Try downloading it to the computer, then right-click the downloaded file, choose 'Open With' and choose RealPlayer. If you have dialup internet it will take forever; I think the file size is about 14mb.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff

      We did well today from 1-4pm on an underwater point. Finally found some fish in a semi-sheltered area. Last few days have been tough to control the small light boat with all the wind. Most caught on pink jigs in 21-30ft.  Cliff I did try the circle hook lindy today with the big minnow and nailed the first bite I had. Next 2 bites grabbed it hard but dropped it. Work in progress!
