      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 .

Mn's hunting regs for antlerless deer, more complicated

Recommended Posts

As it reads on the news.......

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota's hunting regulations for antlerless deer will more complicated this fall.

The Department of Natural Resources says over-the-counter, either-sex permits will be valid in significantly fewer areas, especially in parts of northern and southwestern Minnesota. So hunters who typically did not need to apply for an either-sex permit will need to do so.

Another major change: All muzzleloader hunters must apply for an either-sex permit if they want to kill an antlerless deer in a lottery permit area. In past years, muzzleloader hunters who did not buy a regular firearms license could take an antlerless deer in a lottery area without a permit.

The DNR advises hunters to review the regulations prior to the Sept. 10 application deadline.

I don't think its more complicated unless you've only been hunting here the last 5 years. Before that the regs were very similar as far as applying for doe tags.

True, the new regulation shouldn't stop anyone from having an enjoyable hunting season.

"I look for only that Big Buck and it's been 4 yrs ( 0 for 4 seasons), but i still have a blast every year".

The paper writes the headlines. I wouldn't have used that word either. A more correct statement is 'Minnesota has more lottery deer areas this year'. But ... complicated grabs headlines. The big difference is muzz hunters have to apply and the permits are only valid during the season you apply. In other words, it's not valid during both seasons like last year. Arguably, it's less complicated because if you apply with a muzz. license and get drawn, the permit is valid during the muzz. season only. Same goes for firearm. Hopefully, it's explained clearly in the book.
