      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 .

So from what I gather is that if I apply for a doe tag for say, shotgun season, I cannot get a doe tag for muzzy season...? I can assume this is an attempt to try to reduce kill numbers for lottery areas?

This is what happens when people can hunt both firearms and muzzy season instead of the old way of having to choose one or the other. The muzzy technology improvement also has the effect of easier to use/ more reliable so more guys interested. They are more like single shot centerfires than the muzzys of 15-20 yrs ago. Also shotguns today are nothing like the old slugs and bird bead barrels. All increases harvest. If people can hunt longer (more opportunity) with more effective weapons you will have to restrict what you can take. You can't have your cake and it it too. We got what we asked for.

yes you have hunting both the shotgun and ML but if you draw a doe tag for shotgun and you don't get a deer you can't use that for ML. but my question is how do you appile for a doe tag? do you buy the tag and hope you get draw a doe tag when you let you know in the mail or what??

Just go to an ELS agent and apply through them. You will then be notified if you are successful in the drawing, if it run like last year, your notification is your either sex permit. You must specify if you are applying for the regular firearms season or the muzzy season in your permit area.

I don't have a problem with it at all, Those who hunt both have plenty of opportunity anyway to harvest a deer. I wouldn't be opposed to having it go back to the way it was years ago either....
