      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 .

Fall Turkey Season Extended.

Fall turkey season to be extended in five turkey management zones

MADISON – Wisconsin’s fall turkey hunting season will be extended in five turkey management zones this fall, under a two-year trial period that has passed legislative review. Turkey hunters in zones 1 through 5 will be able to take advantage of the late season this year.

The regular fall turkey hunting seasons this year runs from Sept. 12 through Nov. 19 in all seven turkey hunting zones. The extended season starts Nov. 30, the Monday following the November gun deer hunt, and runs through Dec. 31 in zones 1 through 5 only. There is no extended season in zones 6 and 7 in northern Wisconsin. The extension does not appear in the printed hunting regulations because it was approved after publication deadlines.

“We are pleased to offer this additional opportunity to our hunters,” said Department of Natural Resources Secretary Matt Frank. “The reestablishment of wild turkeys in Wisconsin is a wildlife success story, and both the spring and fall turkey hunts have become tremendously popular. Turkey hunting is often a family activity, and it is helping to introduce new generations of youngsters to the beauty and excitement of Wisconsin’s great outdoors.”

Hunters who received a turkey permit in Zones 1-5 in the fall drawing can use those permits during the extended season in the zone for which they were issued. Permits left over from the fall drawing went on sale August 29. Permits are available on-line at dnr.wi.gov, at any licensed sales vendor or by calling 1-877-WILICENSE (1-877-945-4236).

Leftover permits –which are available only in zones 1, 3 and 4 this year –will be issued on a one per-day basis. The cost is $10 for state residents and $15 for non-residents. Fall leftover permit availability and a turkey zone map can be found on the Wild Turkey page of the DNR Web site.

Following the extended season in 2010, DNR wildlife managers will evaluate the results and the Natural Resources Board will consider whether the extended season should be made permanent.

    • Thanks for all the replies and suggestions.  Having it plugged in isn't a necessity so I'll probably just skip plugging it in all together. I didn't realize that the block heater were that high of wattage so it'll be a much larger draw than I anticipated.   
    • Not sure but I do know that the GPS on the units is said to be a big drain on the battery. We checked to see if the GPS could be turned off and were told it could not.  The screen brightness on these units also has a big impact on battery life so the darker you can have the screen the better for battery life.
    • This kid knows whats good!  Unlike Smurfy!     
    • Hes kinda like the Highlander.... There can be only one
    • Frank, how does one become a certified Nils sharpener anyway? I honestly have no interest, just curious. Seems weird you are like the only one anywhere that does this. What happens when you retire? 
    • Do you guys with the newer CHIRP Models have any idea how long it will run on a full battery charge?  Never really fish in a situation where I wouldn't be able to recharge it overnight, but hopefully it could run all day without problems.
    • That seems like a great deal on the 7.  I was happy with $450 for the 5 at the Ice Show. When I was shopping for my 5 I found a few online retailers selling it for around $430 with free shipping, but they were all based in Florida and I wanted to be able to take it back to a store if there were any problems. Plus something doesn't seem right about buying ice fishing gear from a store in Florida. FWIW the prices I saw at the St. Paul Ice Show on the 5 was $450 from Reeds and Thorne Bros. $459 from Joes. Didn't check the Marine General booth.
    • Looks like a good buck to me Scoot, not many that big where I hunt in WI to be honest and I'd be hard pressed to let him walk even if I knew a bigger one might be in the area.  
    • Yes, I've found my manuals online. Maybe I'm too old school, but still would prefer an actual booklet to page through.  I've downloaded it to my phone - otherwise I would be SOL up north in many areas as I rarely get coverage up there (and I don't really complain about that - nice to get a break from technology).
