      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 .

Bow License Question

Recommended Posts

I have a question about the Bow hunting license. I rifle hunt in a zone that has a lottery for a Doe permit.  If I were to bow hunt in that same zone does the bow hunting license allow you to shoot a doe or is there a lottery with a bow the same as with a rifle?

 Thanks in advance.

are you sure with a bow it is buck only?  That is a regulation I have never heard...if it is a bow I have always been told any sex anywhere...

I looked it up and this year it is if you are in a buck only area even with a bow you can only shoot Bucks!  Now I don't happen to hunt any of those zones that are Bucks only but I wonder how long this rule has been in place...Good Luck this weekend to all!!!

I believe its been that way for at least a few years in buck only zones.

Yeah they do change things from time to time.  On the DNR site I know they highlight the new regs for the year so you can get caught up each year.  

If I remember right the bucks only thing started a few years ago when the herd numbers plummeted.  There were a few zones that went buck only for firearm and bow.  If the zone is lottery I believe your main bow tag is still good for either doe or buck, its just those buck only zones that are impacted.

It's happen for a long time. Some years might be buck only a lot of times goes by the bad winters.  You have to always check regulations each year or with the DNR. Better than relying on what rules are on here. Info I received was straight from the DNR.

This year some changes from buck only to hunters choice and a few picked up a bonus tag. My zone changed from one deer to two , two years ago and should of stayed one deer.

 

Good luck to everyone hunting this weekend.

it might be too late for you but if you take a doe via archery in a lottery rifle zone then you cannot shot another deer in that zone.  Likewise if you take a buck (or any deer with permit) you cannot take another deer via bowhunting in any lottery zone.

Archery is any deer anywhere in the state.

Apologies for the errant information.  I thought they did away with the bucks only zones with the new moose management plan.

Yes, the best thing to do EVERY year is pick up the regs when you buy your license and read “What’s New” in the first few pages, then read everything that might affect you.

    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
