      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 .

Deer Hunting in 2050

Recommended Posts

Hunting Synopsis 2050

Season – Saturday December 12 and Saturday December 19 (in 2016 the religious right got hunting on Sundays banned as being unethical and in 2020 the rest of the week was banned because many had to work and it wasn’t fair that some could hunt and others not. December was chosen as it was well past the rut and would be more ethical)

Shooting Hours – 9:00 AM – 12:00PM (in 2025 it was decided that it would be unethical to hunt before the deer had a proper chance to hide in their beds and they needed the rest of the time to do their deer business.)

Bag Limit – 1 antlered deer all non antlered deer seen. Definition of antlered deer – must have six visible points on one side. (In 2012 QDM convinced all hunters that only true trophies should be harvested taking small bucks would be unethical. The DNR introduces “doe decoys” in 2013 and hunters observed not shooting the decoys were heavily fined and had their hunting privileges revoked.)

Methods –

No stand hunting – a stand is defined as a hunter being immobile for more than 15 minutes. (Tree stands were made illegal after a 2030 shooting incident involving two hunter arguing over a tree to place their portable stand in within the Superior National Forest.)

No hunting on private land (After tree stands were made illegal enforcement on private land was found to be unconstitutional so having no other choice the DNR asked the legislature to make hunting on private land illegal. Anyone caught hunting on private land was subject to imprisonment and forfeited their land to the State.)

No hunting within one quarter of a mile of a field. A field is defined as an area lacking enough cover to conceal a D8 Crawler tractor. (This law was enacted in 2040 when it was found to be unethical to shoot deer at long range. Most hunters were not good enough riflemen to shoot the required 300 yards).

No use of ATVs or snowmobiles. (In 2041 it was finally agreed that anything other than foot traffic was unethical on public land)

Legal weapons – all .30 caliber carbines with open sights. Military personnel may use AR’s in .22 caliber. (High powered scoped rifles were made illegal after the invention of the super ultra short low recoil extra accurate .65 caliber smart rifle of 2037. Most hunters use a Winchester model 94 30-30. The AR’s were allowed to appease the NRA)

No part of any deer may be left in the woods – this includes all entrails and blood. (In 2027 the multiple use organization of Minnesota got this law passed as its members were disgusted by gut-piles left in the woods.)

All hunters must wear lime green with a picture of a scary animal on it. (In 2042 it decided it unethical to hunt in orange as deer could not see orange and the animal was added to make the hunters more visible to the animals. This was a life saver for the Arctic Plant in Thief River Falls as they switched from ATVs and Snowmobiles to hunting clothes. Polaris in Roseau was permanently closed in 2043.)

Hunter’s jackets must be made of Kevlar and have a raised collar. (In 2034 12 hunters were killed by animal attacks it was rumored but unconfirmed that they were killed by cougars.)

If two hunters see each other in the woods they must holler “Allie, allie in free” and immediately retrace their steps to the beginning of their hunt. (It was deemed unethical in 2029 to hunt where you could se another hunter).

Zone 3 will remain closed this year (all the deer in zone three were eradicated when a rare form of bovine STD was introduced to the herd in 2045 by hunters importing large bucks from Texas. All Goodhue county dairy herds were destroyed and the Town of Lewiston was quarantined until it was determined the disease was not spread by consuming the meat of an infected animal. Zone 4 was eliminated from hunting 2040 with the field law)

Wireless tracking devises – All hunters must carry a DNR registered tracking device. (This was made a law in 2048 after 4 hunters died in the swamps north of Fourtown after a blizzard. 6 more hunters nearly died in the same storm by Effie, however they were fined for violating the “Allie, allie in free” law as they banned together to survive the storm.)

License and fees – Resident - $12500 buck license plus $125 surcharge per doe shot

Nonresident - $125,000 buck license plus $125 surcharge per doe. (Bill Jordan, and the Drurey brothers bought the hunting rights to Illinois, Iowa, and Kansas so many of their hunters tried to come to Minnesota. The surcharge is paid directly to the automobile insurance companies for deer collisions.)

A footnote – Uncle Ted Nugent made his last appearance in Minnesota at Moon Dance Jam 2006. He publically wept for his “Blood Brothers” in Minnesota as they argued over the ethics of one anothers hunting methods.

This will never happen. The State wants to increase the amount of people who hunt, not decrease. How much money would the state miss out on if this were the laws, not many people would buy a license?

As ACDC sings it Listen to the "Money Talk" the almighty dollar although I don't know the carrying capacity of the deer hunter, how many more stands can be built when in my area every 20 acres has a stand or two on it or around it.

great imagination lol but some are a little far-fetched.

some i agree with like ATV's on public land for example...but what do i know, im old fashioned. and banning hunting on sundays was already brought up by some religion nut job.

That was some funny stuff right there...hahaha! How about some of you just relax a tad who didn't find that funny. The part about Bill Jordan and the Drury brothers made me laugh out loud. grin

Okay now those regs are hilarious, but they're already outdated. It would be the Southern 3/4's of Zone 2 that were eliminated with the no field hunting statute. Zone 4's already gone.

Great post. My response is that the road to [PoorWordUsage] is paved with good intentions and I think that the QDM and the catch and release crowd is going to usher in some bad times for hunting and fishing, while having good intentions.

The further we get away from just going out and catching a stringer of fish to eat and keep moving towards catching fish only to release is when we've really armed our enemies with tools to question our ethics. Would you shoot a deer with a tranquilizer gun, snap some photos and then revive it for release?

When we only care about shooting large inedible-antlered deer and focus less on getting outdoors for the experience with hopes of shooting some venison for the freezer, we've left our outdoor heritage behind and we've opened the doors again for our enemies to question what exactly it is that we're doing out there. Do we need to only harvest deer with "six points on each side" that are so old and tough that we do nothing more than cape it out and cut the head off for mounting and leave the rest?

I think many of you have lost your way and need to start thinking about what it is we're doing and what we want hunting and fishing to be. If we don't, this picture painted might sound like the good old days by 2050.

Piker,

You got exactly what I was driving at. Hunting has to be about family, friends, and being outdoors. And it has to be about the opportunity to kill. What to kill and how to kill is an individual choice. Managment is a road full of curves and bumps. Micromanagment may be a dead end road.

    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
    • Paint is roughy just used what I had but pretty dang happy with it for 30 bucks.  First charcoal test lasted 6-7 hours.A5B3A72F-6F87-445B-949E-92B20BF41ECF.MOV  
    • I still think sous vide is the ticket if you want the lean roast to be tender, juicy, and pink .  (must resist temptation to insert inappropriate remark here) Next I think I will try the accelerated simulated dry aging where the meat is brushed with fish sauce before sealing in the bag and going in the refrigerator, and then held at 103 for an hour or so (not too long) in the bath before cooking at 130.  
    • I purchased the FLX-28 last season after using the 18 for several years and wow, what a night and day difference!  I really enjoy the auto depth range feature and digital depth readout.  No more taking time to guess the depth!  Weed mode rocks in shallow water weeds when I'm looking for 'gills.  The two zoom zones are great especially for suspended crappies when the 6 foot bottom zoom isn't enough.  Now the bottom 12 feet is there.  Great battery life and it's much quieter than the 18.  Color customization is nice (I have it on palette 3) and I don't have any interference from any other flasher thanks to 20 rejection modes.  I've seen the Marcum 6 and 7s in action and they are also very nice units and allow for lots of customization.  Biggest issue is time to learn the features and the price point.  Still hard to beat the quality of Vexilar or the service the company provides!
    • My dad, may he rest in peace, used an old wood cutting bandsaw that he converted by making some sort of kludgey plywood things to keep the blade on the wheels.   Worked fine.  Not sure how easy it was to clean.   Also not sure how much he worried about it.   Ease of disassembly for cleaning, and blade retention in the presence of food grease would seem to be the big issues.  He cut up a lot of deer and a few moose and nobody got sick...  for what that's worth.
