      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 .

I was wondering if it a "legal" to hang deer carcuses from a tree all winter for "feeding" the birds? It seems to me that it would be illegal

( dont ask why).as far as I know you must properly dispose of them, and where would you get one this time of the year except for a road kill.....................

As far as I know it's legal to hang a deer carcass for the birds. People up here do it all the time, and I've never heard different. I believe a DNR permit is required to possess a road-killed deer.

I've seen it done around here as well. Better that then in the ditch like I've seen. I would bet if you asked a sheriff for a road kill he'd let take it home. Might not be the best time of year though, with warmer temps and all. Stinky.

I talked to a C.O. and it is legal if the deer is taken legally or a permit for road kill and no meat is wasted.(See wanton Waste Laws}

Also sounds like a good way to attract other critters of the four legged variety.

I'm lucky, it pays to have good neighbors.

I guess I'd talk to the guy and see if you can get it taken care of, but I'll bet you already tried that.

Good Luck.

I think there are better ways to feed birds than hang a deer carcass in your yard. I think having to worry about all the other animals coming into the neighborhood to feed on it would be a problem.

Same here. Someone threw out the legs and head and other unusable deer parts on my land and my dog found them and had the same gastro-intestinal problems yours did till I followed him one day and found the garbage and was able to haul the parts out. I wouldn't hang a deer for the birds for that reason.

In the city no its not good, out in the country away from neighbors, I don't see it as a big deal.

Hung in a tree the only critter you might get into it is a pine martin.

They're pretty commonly hung in people's yard trees out of town up here, not in town.

All the birds that come to suet will come to a deer carcass. Most are the remains of the deer hunt, not a fresh carcass, so there are scraps of meat and tallow. Pine marten, fisher, any of the smaller members of the weasel family, as well as squirrels, will eat the tallow, and sometimes they get pulled down by wolves or coyotes at night and drug off.

If I lived out in the woods I'd have no problems hanging one like that.

Cousin cleared it with a CO in NW Iowa. Built a Buzzard Bird Feeder. Large pole in the ground with a 8 x 8 platform on top (w/bracing). Uses a ladder to put road kill on top so it keeps most four legged critters away.

After the deer season we usually leave the remains hanging in the trees for the birds. they love it and it is good for them in the winter. I probobly would not do it in town but here at home it bothers nobody else. Do you guys no the definition of a good neighbor?

Or you could just say, as the poet Robert Frost did, that good fences make good neighbors. smirk.gif

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

      I will check it out a little latter. It looks like a good idea. I do a small diamond wrap on a lot of my ice rods.

      I'm gonna go but not before some of these crops get harvested.  It may not be until Thanksgiving but at least I'll increase my odds if I wait for a better chance of success.

      This is the insulated model. 8x8. If anyone wants it this week I'll let it go for 240.00. Won't  find a better deal!
