      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 .

CRP

Recommended Posts

I hear alot of people talking about hunting CRP. Is everyone talking about the same thing? Are people asking land owners to hunt CRP on their land? Or are people using the acronym in place of Public hunting lands, WMA, WPA?

CrappiesNCats has the answer. Alot of people interchange CRP with any grassy type cover. Although Carpshooterdeluxe is also right that public land does not have CRP technically. CRP stands for Conservation Reserve Program which is done to set aside marginal crop land in native type grasses.

That's what I figured, I know what CRP is, and I was getting the feeling that alot of people here refer to it as prairie grass.

Even private land that is covered in grassy vegetation does not mean it is in the CRP program. I have a few acres on my place that I don't grow crops on but it isn't CRP land either. In other words, I don't get paid not to use the land.

Well, actually in a way I might. It would probably cost me more to work the land than what I could get out of it if I farmed it. So I save the expense and therefore, I make money I guess. It would be legal for me to cut the grass for hay if I chose but there isn't enough there to make it worth my while so I leave it for the wildlife and my pheasant hunting.

Same here. I seeded a portion of our pasture to warm season native prairie grasses about 5 years ago. It's developed into a couple acres of a nearly pure stand of yellow Indiangrass and doesn't look much different than our CREP acres that border it. That area of the pasture provides cover for ground nesting birds in the spring & summer months and grazing for the sheep in the month of August when the cool season grasses in the rest of the pasture tend to go dormant. The sheep also keep the brush and trees out of it so it's a win-win situation.

Can't tell the difference between the CRP and private grassland from the road? Don't feel bad, it fooled our FSA office too. I got a letter from them a year ago chastising me because the mowing I'd done on my CREP acres wasn't sufficiently controlling the thistles. Trouble is, I never mowed any of my CREP acres, I spot-sprayed them. I did however mow some of my pasture and after checking with one of the Co. Directors, that's where they apparently looked. Spot-sprayed both this year, got good control, and heard nary a peep out of them.

    • I am up next Wednesday... but I got a niece to get out prior to me... hopefully Sunday.  Thanks guys
    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!

    • saw the first frog today!!!

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
