      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 .

North Dakota Ranchers Support Ban on Sale of Hunting Rights

Recommended Posts

I guess I had never considered this, the legal possibility of selling off your hunting property to a farmer or rancher but retaining the permanent right to hunt the property. I can actually really side with the ranchers on this. Most hunters are ethical and responsible, but why would you want to chance some yahoo tearing up your land. Sure, you can say, then don't buy it if there's that stipulation, but what if everyone decided to do this, then all of the land would have this stipulation attached. You can also see how they would lose revenue from outfitters or how guys could take advantage on the land they have rights on and set up their own outfitting business with the rancher getting nothing.

Plus, as a hunter, I'm not so sure I'd like this arrangement, what if the rancher was a yahoo and you were always walking on egg shells with him. Seems like the legal agreement would have to be VERY defined to keep one side or the other from taking advantage. I'm kind of partial to the old system, buy your own land, or if you don't have the money, help a farmer or rancher out, gain their trust and be able to hunt the land for free or a nominal fee.

I do not see a problem with retaining rights to hunt on property. If someone wants the land bad enough they will agree; if you do not agree do not buy the land.

I see no difference in this compared to retaining rights for minerals on a property. What if you bought some wooded land and the paper company wanted to retain the right to log out the property and you only wanted it for hunting. Price comes down and you have some land to call your own.

Boy, unless the rancher had land that was just sitting there, never being used, I don't think that I would do it. It could be a very sticky situation. The contract would have to be very tight.

That said, I know some areas around here that would be cool to buy the hunting rights on. It would be much cheaper than buying and maybe more concrete than a lease.

If everyone rejected the idea, nobody would be able to sell their land.

Personally, I'd really have a hard time buying a chunk of land while still giving the seller some legal access or rights to the property. Do those sellers also then pay for a portion of the taxes or are they legal bound to pay an annual user fee? If I was buying and they wanted to sell to me, they have to agree to those stipulations as well otherwise, they could find another sucker.

This type of "use and enjoyment" easement is very common. I have never heard of one specifically for hunting. However, I really don't see it as any different from a hunting guy buying a plot then leasing it to a farmer or a farmer purchasing a lot then leasing it in the fall to a hunter. Just a more permanent arrangement.

Regardless, whether you agree with whoever, it just seems like it could become a big mess no matter how many rules and stipulations came into play. I'd rather own property free and clear or find a rancher or landowner who I could have a good relationship with and if things turn sour for whatever reason, move onto a new piece instead of battling it out with them.

I agree, this might seem like a good idea at first but could be a big mess in the future. Especially when you are talking about multiple hunters owning hunting rights to a peice of land.

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
