      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 .

2009 ND Deer Hunting Season Set

Recommended Posts

North Dakota’s Deer Season Set, Apps Available by Mid-May

North Dakota’s 2009 deer season has been set, with 144,400 licenses available to hunters this fall, a decrease of 5,000 from last year.

Randy Kreil, wildlife chief for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, said progress toward reducing deer numbers was evident this past year in the northwestern, north central and southeastern portions of North Dakota. As a result, these areas will have stable to lower license numbers.

“The significant decline in deer numbers in several hunting units resulted from multiple years of high harvest on does,” Kreil said. “In addition, the difficult winter of 2008-09 resulted in significant deer mortality in northern and eastern North Dakota, and creates a potential for lower reproductive success in 2009.”

However, mule deer and white-tailed deer in the southwest (outside the badlands) have increased to above management goals, Kreil said. “Winter in this area was not as severe and losses are expected to be much lower,” he added. “Additionally, the impending loss of most CRP in the southwest by 2012 will reduce habitat and will not be able to sustain the current population.”

The mule deer population in the badlands remains at or above management goals. The 2009 population survey indicates a stable to slightly lower number of mule deer than in 2008. As a result, the number of mule deer licenses available is nearly the same as last year.

In addition to a second special herd reduction season for antlerless deer in the northeast in units 2C and 2D, the 2009 deer proclamation also offers a special herd reduction season in the southwest in units 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. The early season in the northeast runs from Sept. 25 – Oct. 1, and the one in the southwest is Oct. 2-9.

“Special herd reduction seasons are intended to reduce deer populations in the area,” Kreil said. “It was successful last year in the northeast, and we anticipate the same success in the southwest.”

The number of licenses available for 2009 includes 8,700 for mule deer, an increase of 100 from last year; 2,714 for muzzleloader, down 102 from last year; and 345 restricted youth antlered mule deer, the same as last year.

North Dakota’s 2009 deer gun season opens Nov. 6 at noon and continues through Nov. 22. Online applications for the regular deer gun, youth, muzzleloader, and resident gratis and nonresident landowner seasons will be available by mid-May through the Game and Fish Department’s Internet HSOforum at gf.nd.gov. Also, paper applications will be at vendors throughout the state by May 15. The deadline for applying is June 3.
