      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 .

Rare 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.

Please remember that if you don't want to hear swearing, you should turn down the volume when you watch the video.

The poor deer looked like it was exhausted. It had to have been dragging the other body around for 2-3 weeks. Can you imagine how it ate, drank, slept, etc with that thing hanging on his head? If someone was to shoot him this season he'd probably be a little disappointed that the 12 point rack was broken up from the guys separating them.

Thats a great video. I had a friend in Roseau, MN. who shot a buck, who was locked up with another buck. One of the deer was dead just like this situation. All though I don't think the dead deer was rotten yet. He had both deer heads mounted, locked up, so you would hang it on the wall in the corner of the room. Pretty cool.

It was nice to see these guys decided to let the deer go. Did your friends say how pheasant hunting was ? I've been to North Dakota twice this fall and filled out both times. I am looking to go again, was thinking about trying Iowa.

7 guys got 21 birds. There are a lot of pheasants (and deer) around.

Without trying to be nosey, wondering what part of Iowa were they hunting. Did they just hunt a couple of days ?

It was in NW Iowa, around Emmetsburg. They live in the area. It was a one-day thing. I talked to one of the guys yesterday, three of them went out without dogs yesterday, saw quite a few but only got 2.
