      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

cylinder

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.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.

      I believe that there is a campsite or picnic area in the bay just South of the S-Curve  located adjacent to the WMA, I believe that Green Herons and Blue Herons nest in the trees there! Cliff

      Hope everyone had a great summer season of fishing and otherwise, and here's to hoping the fall season is going well.  I'm planning to get some grouse hunting in while up in a couple weeks and noticed Pine Island has a WMA on it.  Figured if I had time, I can take a quick ride out to there and have fun walking around on an island WMA.  Does anyone have any input on difficulty of beaching a boat somewhere along the shoreline on the north or south side, if even possible?   Thanks for the help and advice this year from everyone I talked to on here.  Looking like I may miss out on hard water this year and will have to put cracking that nut off until next year.

      Northwestern and central Minnesota have elevated fire danger due to sparse rain, high winds and lack of humidity. This means that open burning may be restricted in certain counties. The Department of Natural Resources urges Minnesotans to use caution while burning yard waste or leaf piles outdoors and to check the burning permit website for information.  “During fall, we know that residents and property owners will be taking care of leaf and brush piles,” said Casey McCoy, DNR wildfire prevention supervisor. “Piles can smolder undetected for several weeks under the right conditions. Windy, fall days can reignite these piles.” On average, Minnesota issues approximately 43,250 burn permits annually. When weather conditions warrant it, state fire team leaders may turn burning permits on or off. To determine whether burning is allowed, Minnesotans should regularly check their county burning restrictions. Residents may need to find alternatives to burning such as composting or hauling brush to a collection site or wait until it is safer to burn. “If you do decide to burn yard waste or leaf piles, do so when there is less wind,” said Linda Gormanson, burning permit coordinator. “Instead of burning your yard waste and potentially causing a wildfire, compost or chip your yard waste or bring it to a collection site.” Burning restrictions do not apply to campfires; they are still allowed. Clear an area around the campfire, watch it continuously and make sure it is out cold to the touch before leaving. Fire danger can change quickly. Check the Minnesota Incident Command System site https://goo.gl/W686km for fire behavior conditions. For questions about burning restrictions, check the DNR page at mndnr.gov/burnrestrictions or call your local Forestry office. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Lots of boats on the river daily here in LF now.  Select people are hitting good pods of fish and catching well.  Flows, though still Very swift, are slowing.  Fish are becoming a little more scattered, more fish are being caught away from shore and away from prominate structure. Minnows and tubes pulling most fish.  A few nice fish here and there most are falling in the 15-17 inch range. Good luck out there.

      Rivers are so under fished in this state.  People seem to gravitate towards lakes all the time and avoid rivers but the reality is that rivers, large and small, have awesome fishing.
