      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 .

we have been shed hunting/scouting alot latley and my buddy stumbbled upon a buck with its foot wedged into the v of a tree. He ran back and got me and we fetched the saw and went into the woods. We cut the tree down and freed the deer which was kicking around but it just lied there when we left. It was obviously exausted and in pain. the next morning we returned and it was still there and hardly breathing. It was dead by sunday night. I felt really bad that it had to suffer like that. I wanted to just shoot it so bad. WHat should we have done?? I was in a dilema being as it wasnt huntign season and the warden probabaly wouldnt have liked a dead deer with gun shot wound in it.Not sure how the buck even got there in the first place confused.gifconfused.gif We have pics too but im not sure how to post them and I dont even know If I can post 35mm pics.

You could have called the warden and asked him for permission to dispatch the deer or asked him to come do it himself. Otherwise, nature took its course. We are so soft when it comes to animals (not that that's a bad thing either) that we don't realize how cruel the normal circle of life is in the wild. You did the best you could for this deer, in reality it was just his time to go. At least you let him rest more comfortably the last couple days...

Agreed.

I came across something kinda sorta similar a few years back. I called the local CO and asked about shooting it. I was told to leave it alone and if it dies it dies.

That's nature being nature.

That's a tough call on that one...........just make sure to always call the DNR first so you can avoid any uneccesary fines.

Yup, I agree. Chances are the CO is going to say let nature take it's course.

CO may let nature take its course, but by calling alw enforcement you can ask the officer for a possession tag to keep the meat so it doens't go to waste.

Agreed, that is a possibility.

But even if the finder doesn't get to tag/eat it, something else probably would so, IMO, it wouldn't be a total waste in nature's cycle.

I had some meat from a deer that was grazed (head-neck) by a car but lived for a couple days... It made it into the woods and laid down... My buddy though it was just dazed and would be fine after it got it's wits about it. He checked on it the next day and it only made a small move. It made it a day and a half before dying, It must've been in some pain as in the end it looked like it was thrashing all over the ground before it died. It was still warm and limber so he was sure it had just died that morning... My buddy got a possession tag for it and butchered it. It was terrible! I think between the lactic acid build-up and probably adrenaline and what ever else courses through a stressed animal, the meat was terrible! He then made it into sausage, but I passed on any of it... I think the dogs ate well that spring... would've been better letting Ma's forest critters get some fresh meat coming out of the winter...

Good Luck!

Had someone hit a deer right in front of the place i was renting last year, hit the deer in the head and snapped its neck, was actually very good meat.

Had that too before... the one I described above lived for a couple days... this meat was nasty! The difference being I can only assume a quick death vs. a long drawn out one...

Good Luck!

Any slow lingering death will ruin good meat. If the animal gets any kind of fever the meat is ruined, too. If you are serious about harvesting an animal you have to do it as quick as possible and get that meat cooled down immediately. Otherwise get the gas can.

Deer ran in open country by road hunters will have the same effect. Another good reason to ban road hunting/hunters!

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
