      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 .

This is the first time in many many years we didn't get 1 doe tag at all.

There must have been a million people applying fr them.

I thought maybe something went whacky with their drawing. Every year we would get 6-10 tags. I guess I will need to find someplace else to hunt this year.

Here's the update as of today (28-Sep-09)

Deer Licenses Available

Interested deer hunters still have time to purchase a license for the 2009 hunting season.

As of Sept. 28, more than 20,000 antlerless deer licenses remain for the 2009 season. There is no limit on the number of deer licenses a hunter can receive. Doe licenses are available in units 1, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F1, 2H, 2J2, 2K2, 2L, 3A2, 3A4, 3D2, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2, 4E and 4F.

These remaining antlerless licenses – and doe licenses that have already been issued and are printed with second, third or additional concurrent season designations – can be used during any open season: bow season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. Hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

Remaining antlerless licenses in units 2C, 2D, 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F can also be used during the respective special herd reduction season – Sept. 25 – Oct. 1 in 2C and 2D; and Oct. 2-9 in 3E1, 3E2, 3F1, 3F2 and 4F. Again, hunters are restricted to the designated unit.

North Dakota’s 2009 deer gun season runs from Nov. 6-22. The archery season extends through Jan. 3, 2010, and muzzleloader season is Nov. 27 – Dec. 13. License fees are $20 for residents and $55 for nonresidents.

Resident and nonresident hunters can apply online at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department HSOforum, gf.nd.gov.

Hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

In addition, landowners in nine hunting units – 2K2, 3A2, 3D1, 3E1, 3F1, 3F2, 4A, 4D and 4E – are still looking for doe hunters.

A few of us would like to hunt 2F1 near Cooperstown, it's where we grew up, but I can't figure out how to get a license on-line. All I find is deer-bow. What am I missing? What all would we need? Deer, Small game?

To answer the post about 2C some areas in that zone are rediculously overpopulated with deer. Our group of 7 hunt in 2c and 2d(some) and have never had an issue filling our tags for does in a few days (15 -20 each year). Most of the land surrounding the property we hunt is posted tight with alot of it leased to a few hunters who shoot their buck and go home leaving the land they hunted a sancuary for the rest of the year. The area we hunt is loaded with high quality deer habitat that can and does hold LOTS of deer. there is truely no shortage....even with the liberal amounts of doe tags each year, in the last 7 years there has been no decrease in the amount of deer we see.

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required. 
    • Any recent reports?
