      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 .

Military Deer License

Recommended Posts

Have you military guys seen the change this year in the MN deer regs? From the DNR HSOforum -

Military deer license. Residents discharged from active military service may receive a free deer hunting license that is valid for either-sex deer. The license is also valid for either-sex deer in lottery and youth only antlerless areas.

It doesn't specify if "when" you were discharged makes a difference in getting this license. I emailed the DNR and tried calling but no luck yet. Anybody know if it matters when you were dischaged?

Thx.

I never heard of such a thing but it would be nice. Are you sure it is not for guys who are home on leave... and i know 100% disability gets a free license but far as i know i dont think jsut a regular guy discharged from the military qualifies. Maybe I am wrong?

I think you only read page 3, which is just the "what's new" section. The full military deer license info is on page 19. The answer is within 24 months. Take a look at the page and post any follow up questions.

It goes 2 years from the date of discharge on your DD214. When I came back from Iraq, I got to hunt for two years without having to buy a license. Just take your DD214 to any license agent and they will issue you a free deer license. Works the same for fishing. You get to fish for free for 2 years. Don't even need to get a license. Just have a copy of your DD214 in the boat with you and that is your license. Very nice part on the state to do this for its vets.

nice gesture on the state's part.

I agree, it is great that the state does this. It happens in most states across the nation. I deer hunt in Iowa and my cousins husband is a active Air Force officer. When he gets in town to hunt with us all he has to do is sight in his gun. He does not even have to have a paper license. When he harvests a deer all he does is call the local CO. The CO shows up and looks at his leave papers and then tags his deer for him. Very Cool!
