      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 .

Their is an article in the current MN Outdoor News about this. Their is now two regular firearms licenses. The statewide (A) season license, and then a (B) season license for what was traditionally the 3B season. Areas during the (A) season have different season lengths resembling the old zones we were used to (1A, 2A, 4A..).

So eyesorbust, you'll be spending $28 instead of $78.

Can they at least print all three of the licenses I'm going to have to buy one one sheet like they do my pheasant stamp and duck stamp on my small game license? The very last thing I need is more pieces of paper to carry with me all the time and make sure which one I have when I'm hunting which season. Also will each one have a separate tag too? This will be a mess of paper...

Looks like 28*3=84 so the DNR is also raising my all-season license $6 huh? That's a pretty sneaky way to raise a license fee without telling anyone.

I think the new suggestions are great, but to make it easier to understand they should word it "the firearm's license is valid statewide" (except 3B(also silly)) and keep the zones the same.

That would be better than "...new zones, but the shotgun and rifle areas still apply, but the season length didn't change in the North Zone but now the South Zone is 8 instead of 2 and 4 days..." etc.

But a lot of people were buying the All Season license that didn't need archery or muzzloader, so for them it's cheaper.

Plus everything is going up. It would have gone up even if they hadn't made the changes.

It'll still be a lot of paper because of the tag. There's just no way to design a licensing system so long as the animal has to be tagged. As for price, deer licenses are $26, not $28. License fees are actually controlled by the Legislature. DNR couldn't raise them if they wanted to.

oops, sorry about the $28 vs $26. Thanks for the correction lcornice.

This will be my first year arching. Does the archery license come with only one tag?

Lou,

First appreciate all that you folks do to try and make things work.

Second any word yet on the Intensive Harvest areas or bonus tag areas?

If so are these going to be identified by the old area numbers?

And if or when the early season is held will that also be considered seperate license or count towards the regular season doe tags?

How does the regular season license work? Is this a bucks only license, does only, one of each?

Does your regular season tag need to be filled first before purchasing bonus tags or fill bonus tag prior to regular tag?

I know we should just wait until the regs come out but some of us are tweaking for the season to start already and are incurably inquisitive:)

Im curious how this will affect the Lifetime Licences. This should be a good thing for me since I have archery and firearms deer. I had to upgrade to Multizone Buck in order to hunt in zone 1 along with zone 2. This cost me an additional 30 some bucks every year.

Obviously I am a non resident now but bought these licenses before I moved.

Does anyone know if I can get a muzzleloading licence with my lifetime licence?

If so are these going to be identified by the old area numbers? The 400 series areas will be renumbered to a 200 series. The boundaries aren't changing

And if or when the early season is held will that also be considered seperate license or count towards the regular season doe tags? They'll be EA areas and they won't count towards your total season bag (same as always)

How does the regular season license work? Is this a bucks only license, does only, one of each? Same as always. Either-sex in managed or intensive areas right off the bat. It's bucks only in lottery unless you draw a permit.

Does your regular season tag need to be filled first before purchasing bonus tags or fill bonus tag prior to regular tag? Nope, it's never been that way. You just need to have the tag before you shoot the deer. You can't shoot first, buy tag later

I think I opened a can of worms

    •   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 think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • 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.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
