      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 .

Where to shoot rifle?

Recommended Posts

I'm new to MN and looking for a place to target shoot my rifle.

Where can I shoot somewhere that's a reasonable drive from the southern burbs of the Twin Cities? I'm not looking for a gun club/public shooting range.

Back in WA, we drive up into the woods and do our thing. I'm not sure about all the rules in MN.

Thanks

Private land or a range is about it. It is illegal to target/trap shoot on most public land.

Also, Starting Monday (the 5th day before the firearms deer season opens) it is illegal to target shoot on private land as well.

caribou hunt club in Le Suere is about your best bet for target shooting in the south metro if you are southwest, I know there are a few others. Check out the MN DNR HSOforum, they have all public shooting ranges listed there. Most are private clubs some are public but with restricted hours

where in the south metro are you? I would suggest the DNR HSOforum I know they list them and there is one in Rosemount as well. I used Bills Gun Shop in Robbinsdale and was pleasently surprised with the facility

So do these ranges provide you a rifle rest, bench, spotting scope, or do you have to bring all your own gear? I only have one rifle, so I really don't want to buy all the extra gear for just one gun.

jbell, What???....you can't set up a target on your own land??? What is the rationale behind that?

Correct, for the 5 days before you can not target shoot your rifle unless on a authorized range.

See page 24 of the hunting regulations book. "Possesion of firearms before, during and after the firearms deer season".
