      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 .

Wisconsin Archery Hunters Set Record Buck Harvest

Recommended Posts

MADISON -With data entry near complete, hunter-supplied numbers indicate that 366,747 deer were harvested in Wisconsin for the 2012 seasons, a 5 percent increase from 2011, according to Department of Natural Resources officials. This tally will again rank the state in the top five deer hunting states in the country for total harvest and continues the trend of increased deer harvest for the third consecutive year.

"Good hunting conditions throughout the fall, high numbers of both hunters and deer, and an early gun opener all added up to a lot of hunter success," said Kevin Wallenfang, DNR big game ecologist. "Like any year, we heard from hunters who had a great season and others who were disappointed, but overall harvest trends have been on the rise."

Of the grand total, 245,539 deer were harvested during the traditional nine-day November gun season and another 93,452 during the archery season. Of the archery season total, 45,775 were bucks, making it the new record buck archery harvest of all time for Wisconsin.

"It was a great year for buck harvest, especially in the farmland areas," Wallenfang said. "Wisconsin has always been known as a great producer of trophy bucks, but this year has likely secured Wisconsin's standing in the record books. It will be a lot of fun to attend the deer hunting shows this spring to see just what was taken."

All other combined gun seasons added an additional 27,756 deer to the total harvest. Harvest numbers are still preliminary while the archery season continues in metro units, and are in the process of being reviewed by field biologist.

Also being reviewed is feedback DNR received from hunters at deer registration stations and from the Deer Hunter Wildlife Survey.

"Reports we have received from several areas of the state have shown increasing trends in deer sightings during both the archery and firearm seasons compared with last year and the past several years," said Brian Dhuey, DNR wildlife surveys and database manager.

"We will be using harvest data along with survey responses to gauge hunter participation, effort, impressions of deer numbers and satisfaction," said Dhuey.

"This, combined with statewide public meetings this spring on herd status, will allow the public to participate in the deer management process."
