      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 .

You need a hunters safety certificate, regardless of how old you are. If you have that, then you just need to buy the non-res license and the Federal stamp (if you have fed stamp from MN or another state, you don' tneed to buy it twice).

There are several license options, so you just need to know where you will hunt and the dates. You have two one-week slots. You can always do the second slot the last week of the season, and then if you decide to go again earlier you can call up and change the start date of the second week slot.

The NoDak folks are very, very nice people as you probably know. I can't say enough about them. We got to be very good friends with farmers we met while hunting.

Have a fun trip!

You need hunter's safety if you were born after 1961. All the info you need is on the ND Fish and Games's HSOforum.

How the heck do you apply for a swan tag. I found the deadline is the middle of Aug, but I can't find out how to apply online. Can you? Or do you have to call them and mail in the app??

Anyone done this and know how it works.

The web site says that swan tags are not available at this time. You could call the license department at: 1-701-328-6335 & they can let you know if any will be available for non-residents.

Good luck.

They're available for non-res to apply for, the HSOforum lists the price for the permit for res and NR. I found where it said the deadline was Aug 13 last year, but can't find the application or anything on how to apply. I also found somewhere on their site the aps weren't available until the last week of july. That's pretty tight spacing if they were available July 25 and due Aug 13, no problem for me but it seems weird, just wanted to know if I have it right.

I found this, which is the application to hunt Waterfowl, Small Game, Crane, Furbearer and Non-game. In which you would think swan would be included, but I can't find it on there, I could just be missing it.

You are right Wade. Also there are some weekends where non-res cannot hunt on PLOTS land. No biggie though, lots o land to hunt there.
