      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 .

Deer Lotto results available online

Recommended Posts

Here's info on the leftover tags:

Deer Lottery Held, Antlerless Licenses Remain

North Dakota’s deer gun lottery has been held and individual results are available online at the state Game and Fish Department’s HSOforum, gf.nd.gov. Successful applicants will receive their license in the mail by mid July.

The first lottery application process – deer gun, muzzleloader, youth and landowner – had 94,000 applicants, the same as last year. Fifty-nine percent (up from 51 percent) of the applications were submitted online.

Nearly 63,000 antlerless deer gun licenses remain. Unsuccessful resident applicants in the first drawing will be mailed a second lottery application with a July 23 deadline. The second lottery will take place prior to those who seek additional licenses.

Resident and nonresident hunters who have not yet applied, or who want additional licenses, must submit a third lottery application no later than July 30. The third lottery application is available online at the Game and Fish HSOforum. Paper applications will be available from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors by mid July.

Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

Units 2C and 2D remaining doe licenses can be used during the 7-day September antlerless deer gun season. Hunters must stay in the assigned unit (2C or 2D).

The regular deer gun season starts at noon Nov. 7 and continues through Nov. 23.

Our crew is doing good on Buck draws so far we are 5 for 6 waiting to hear on that one. Looks like our work will be cut out for us this year possibly.

Looks to be a good year for you. I always figure the hardest part of getting a buck in ND is getting the tag.

Maybe I should have a ND address just for the lottery. smile

Well I didnt draw a buck with my first attempt at a NR tag. Looks like most of our party got their buck tags though. Guess I will have to stock up on extra doe tags.

Yes in the doe lottery I have just as good a chance as the resident. But, for the buck lottery, only 1/2 of 1% of the buck tags in each zone go to non-residents annually so it is very hard to draw a buck tag. Usually 1 every 4-5 years unless one gets very lucky or finds a guide and pays $500-$750 for a tag.

Harvey.....not quite right.1% of the buck tags in each zone can go to NR.But included in that 1% are non-res. landowner tags,which are subtracted first.Also 100 tags can go to G/O statewide with no more than 5 to any G/O.Those are also subtracted before the draw.

Yes, 1% go to the non res but half of those go to the guides in that area so, in the lottery, 1/2 of 1% go to the non res. and landowners. Not many any way you cut it.

No you are wrong about that.G/O only get 100 tags statewide,not half the tags in each unit.NR landowners get guaranteed tags which amount to more than go to G/O.I would like to see this stopped or that NR landowners get does only.

4 of us got buck tags for SW N.Dakota. We'll be hunting with Logging Camp Ranch Outfitters, south of Medora. Has anyone had any experience w/ this outfit? My dad did all the research work and talked to some archery rep's and such, so it sounds pretty good. Just wondering if anyone else has been there? We'll be out there the 3rd week of October. Starting to get excited for fall!!!

The third lottery is coming up quick:

Third Lottery Deer Application Deadline July 30

Deer hunters interested in applying for a first, second, third or fourth license have to submit a third lottery application no later than July 30.

Hunters can apply online, or print out an application, at the North Dakota Game and Fish Department’s HSOforum, gf.nd.gov. Paper applications are also available from Game and Fish offices, county auditors and license vendors. Residents and nonresidents are eligible to apply.

After the third lottery drawing, any remaining licenses will be issued on a first-come, first-served basis.

Additional concurrent season doe licenses can be used during the archery season with a bow; the deer gun season with a bow, rifle, or muzzleloader; or during the muzzleloader season with a muzzleloader. These licenses must be used for antlerless deer only, and hunters must stay in the unit to which the license is assigned.

Remaining doe licenses in units 2C and 2D can be used during the 7-day September antlerless deer gun season. Hunters are restricted to either unit 2C or 2D.

The regular deer gun season starts at noon Nov. 7 and continues through Nov. 23.

Thanks for the reminder Rob. I applied for all I could in the hope that I get a couple for this fall. Maybe I will be hunting elsewhere this fall as my luck is running short.

I have hunted in ND for 17 years and always gotten plenty of tags and this year it looks like maybe 2.

    • Not a cowbird. We have several around here and they are generally dark-black grey and brown. The pictured bird almost looks as though it could be an immature yellow headed blackbird. Cowbirds are quite reclusive and we have been surprised they come out to our feeders, but they have become pretty regular customers. Like the deer that graze in the front yard. Last night we had the buck, doe and twin fawns and even though we talked softly to them they did not spook,  but seemed to simply acknowledge our presence on the deck and continued to feed. And of course, as usual, the black squirrels are gathering all MY walnuts!  darn.....I just can't win. The chipmunks eat my strawberries, deer eat tomato plants and squirrels eat my walnuts. I'm left with this old bottle of Beefeaters, a small bottle of vermouth and a few olives in a jar.  Things are tough out here in the wilderness.
    • Quincey should be a solid guy. I don't recall watching him play, but by looking at his stats over the years it appears to be an upgrade over Scandella.
    • Just looked up the yellow. Definitely not, no white on wings and way too yellow. And all the pictures of a cowbird on Google don't show a cowbird with the rusty colored ring on it's back.
    • Spending most of my time in Dallas these days due to my job.  Will be fishing the Otter County Area in a couple of weeks.  Can't wait!  Just wondering what you guys are seeing?  I am assuming the Bass are in and will be in their late summer patterns which to me means that you could find 'em anywhere.  One of the questions my friend had (I guess watching KVD in Elite Series and  Major League fishing -- I think his recent win on the Elite Series on St Lawrence River was mainly a drop shot) was jerk baits for this time of year.  Frankly, I use mostly jigs and plastics.  Watching KVD, I think I should give jerk baits more a try.
    •  It looks yellow in the bad picture but it's a very rusty medium brown. Definatly in the blackbird family though I think. I need a decent camera. Eye guy, you told me about a not too expensive digital camera with a good zoom lens didn't you? I don't think that's it. The ring on its back is the same rust color. 
    • Of course!  Yaller headed B bird, like the Duffster said.   https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Yellow-headed_Blackbird/id
    • Yellow headed blackbird?
    • It looks way to light brown to be a cowbird but I see nothing else in my bird book it could be??? I know this is a bad picture but it's the best I can do. The thing is so tame I can almost walk right up to it and it never goes away for long.
    • Thanks for the replies. I am going to get a box of 1 3/4 #5's and a box of 1 3/4 #6's and pattern them against what I have been shooting, Hope to get that done when I go up to mow my trails this fall, whenever I can free up some time to go. I will post some results.
    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair.
