      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 .

Gun and Bow with you in a tree?

Recommended Posts

Just had a question between some co workers - what if you have an unused bow tag which you can take either a doe or buck with, and have a gun tag that only allows for taking a buck in our zone - can you have both weapons with you in a tree? Basically, if you want to shoot the first deer that presents a shot, can you legally take both weapons with you and shoot a doe with the bow, but yet have the shotgun in case a buck comes in first but doesn't come into bow range? That would be the only deer you could harvest in our zone so you would be done, but then you have both options since without the lottery doe permit for gun season you have to hold out for a buck. It's just a debate, is this legal?

Because you can't be in possession of a firearm while bowhunting for deer. I believe you can for bear but not deer.

Check the regs. to be sure.

That is it in a nutshell. You can not be in possession of a firearm while hunting deer or small game with archery equipment. It is ok for bear (the hole a bear could eat you argument) but not for deer.

It is clearly writen in the Regs. book. A carry permit holder can not even have his gun with him while bowhunting.

Bottom line and end of argument ITS THE LAW!!!

Well alright then. Neither of us have a reg book with us at work and didn't want to wade through them online.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say something different. If you have both archery and firearms tags and you have the bonus tags, I seen no problem with it. As long as it is in firearms season. You cannot tag a deer with both primary tags, so if you had a buck with your gun and then used your bow to shoot a doe and tagged her with your archery main tag. I think the whole gun with a bow limitation is in the archery season only. You can ask "Lcornice" about that he would know for sure.

This is from page 92 in the handbook.

*********************

A person may not take deer by archery while in possession of a

firearm.

It would seem to be quite clear.

Well I am going to disagree with mrklean on this one cause you can have any gun, bow, crossbow, muzzle loader in the vehicle at any time as long as they are legally set up for transport. (case, unstrung, ect.) That is stright from the CO's mouth. I asked this question about four or five years ago.

Not sure about that part. I may or may not carry... and always or never have a firearm in the vehical. The only hang up I can see as a possibility is if you are transporting a bow killed deer while in possesion of a firearm. Think that part may need further investigation.
