      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 .

? on hunting area near jorday belle plaine

Recommended Posts

good morning I was wondering if anyone is familiar with the following area.

heading on 169 towards belle plain after you pass jordan, right after the APPLE ORCHARD place is an adjacent land that i saw some signs on looked like the ones with ducks on it or whatever. I was wondering if that is a legal area to bow hunt for deer. I tried looking on the DNR COMPASS and It doesnt list it at all.

That is MN Valley National wildlife refuge land. Some of it is open to certain game and some of it isn't check their HSOforum or pick up a flier that they have available at most parking locations along the refuge.

PRIM (public hunting area) maps, and your 2008 Hunting and Trapping handbook are good sources for the information you are looking for. From what I was reading I would say the area you are describing is closed.

I know when turkey and deer season roll around, the private land around it has a lot of people on it.

I used to hunt some private land there, but there are too many people tresspassing without permission who try to sneak in there. My cousins family owns some of the land and he won't hunt there anymore after almost getting shot. The CO and sheriff keep a close eye on it now. Don't get caught down there without written permission from the right person who's land your on.

I'm pretty sure it is a no hunting zone. If we are thinking of the same property.
