      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 .

Youth hunting question

Recommended Posts

I have two boys ages 9 and 10. I plan on taking the 10 year old out for the youth waterfowl opener. My question is can he hunt with me during the regular season also. Looking in the MN regs I can't see where it states the age were he can legally hunt waterfowl with me.

Thier is know age restriction on small game hunting in Minnesota you can check in the begining of the hunting laws and it will tell you at what age they have to purchase thier stamps and small game licenses.

I remember when my brother told me that his 10 year old could legally carry a shotgun as long as he could demonstrate that he was competent and was with a guardian. That's great for the kids but why do we think that they suddenly become less competent at age 12? I've never really figured this one out.

Minnesota has no minimum age requirement for small game and waterfowl - they leave it up to the parents. I've had my son shooting ducks and snowshoes since age 9. The way I understand the laws in Wisconsin kids can't hunt anything until age 12 unless they are participating in the mentoring program which goes into effect for the first time on Sept 1st of this year.

Leaves you wondering how you can bring a kid up to be ready to down a deer at age 12 in Wisconsin when they previously couldn't even legally shoot a squirrel until age 12 confused
