      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.

    • Buddie runs the blue bit gas Nills and Tanaka powerhead and he also told me they no longer make them. He bought another one off a guy just for a backup. Thinking maybe just the gas ones are gone  but possibly both, Interested to hear what Frank says. 
    • ajust in the controls of the radio????
    • Now I’m convinced. I made a shuttle for my Helix but I couldn’t get the settings right until yesterday. Love it with no interference with a Showdown right next to it. Still need to get the ice ducer for it. 
    • Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed. Just posting for reference.  
    • I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.
    • As I remember the round was developed by Col. Townsend Whelan.  It was well thought of at the time and could be loaded up to some serious heavy duty stuff,  big bullets etc.  It was favored in heavy cover since  it was thought of as a brush busting load. I am pretty sure it was available in at least one commercial rifle (Rem?) but it has long ago faded away as newer calibers etc. surpassed it. Am not sure the ammo was available commercially, but it would not take much of your time to  check it out. I'd start with the Col. and go from there.It had its strong supporters. The 35 Remington has a lot more going for it than the 30-30.
    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer.
