      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 .

Bear Permits

Recommended Posts

I believe they cut the number of permits this year because of the average age of bears that were being shot were young bears. I think I read this in the DNR's report on last years season. I think their idea is to decrease the number of permits to decrease the possibility of smaller bears being shot. I think once they see older bears being shot, the permits will increase. I am not 100% sure on this though. Maybe I will read the report again and find out for sure.

i personally dont have much faith in the dnrs abitity to check age for bear. they said my bear last year was 1 year old. i have seen 1 year old bear and this one wasnt. also was told by a taxidermist he sent 2 teeth by the same animal results came back as 1 being 7 years old the other 3. saying that i can believe that the younger bears are harvested more easliy, but thats with any species.

I am getting antsy for the baiting to begin. Haven't applied in 5 years and I decided to this year and got picked. The only bad part is logging has been going on in our area and really ruined a few prime spots. Probably our best spots and now they aren't huntable.
