      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 .

No ticket, just a lot of hrassment. I told the guy to search my car, he would find no gun. I even offered up the huntign/trapping regs, but he refused to look at him.

I would have told him to either ticket me and I will see him in court or else I would have headed back into the woods. Cause he can't keep you there and if you leave he either has to let you leave or detains you. If he detains you now he's gone into almost an arrest. I would have asked for either the ticket or to quit buggin me. I'm also a smart butt when I get around police officers because I have an education in law enforcement and know half the [PoorWordUsage] they pull is to guilt you into letting them do illegal searches and seizures.

they can really detain you?

guess i didn't know that. I thought they could only call a CO if they saw a violation... like any other person.

sounds like he had a bad day and wanted to take it out on someone.

A law enforcement officer can write you a game law ticket the same as a Conservation Officer can. The CO can also write you a ticket for tailgateing or parking if he wished. If you did get tagged you could have taken it to cort. He likely thought you were actualy shinning, which is illeagal this time of year. I find it best not to have an attitude about it.

The long arm of the law has ways of making live difficult if they feel like doing so.

Yes they can detain you and will. They also can enforce the game laws if they know which laws are being broken. That is not there area of enforcement so most do not know game laws. Thay know that you can not shoot across or from a road, can not use lead shot while duck hunting and that type of thing but most do not know the game laws so most do not even try to enforce them. But yes they will detain you till a CO gets there and that is not a problem.

I don't think police/sheriff have ticket books for game laws and C.O.'s don't have ticket books for speeding etc. As far as I know each type of officer turns the pinch over to the other type of officer.

Black bay,

not sure where you got your info, but I can guarantee you that a Conservation Officer can and will write you a ticket for traffic laws or anything non-game" related.

I work with C.O.'s many times throughout the year and this comes up everytime.

As to the other side of the question of Sheriff's, City Police, or State Patrol writing tickets for infractions that a C.O. normally would, I say this with a resounding YES, they can and will write you a ticket or detain you until a C.O. can arrive.

I had a situation where I was in a WMA and some guy drove through the gate and past a sign that clearly stated "No Motorized Vehicles Beyond This Point". The C.O's weren't available (on a call on the other side of the county at the time)so I called the Sheriffs Dept who arrived within minutes, cited the individual and escorted him out.

Because there are too few C.O.'s to cover the entire state, they recommend that you contact the local Sheriff's Dept first.

Now after writing all of this, I have one question for the OP. If you have a Law Enforcement education, isn't this something that you would know? Not trying to sound rude. Just curious since we don't know how far into your LE education you are at this point.

Firearms must be locked in the trunk or in the extreme rear portion of the pickup box as I understand it.

Now this may be different during deer season. Someone else such as lawdog might be able to answer this more clearly than I.

I got my info from a retired state trooper. He never had ticket books that covered shining deer or taking too many fish etc. If he encountered those situations he called a C.O. and they wrote the ticket for those. In the example you stated I suppose the person could have been tagged for trespassing or a similar offence. Many offences could be covered under different laws. ie if someone shot at a deer on the shoulder of the road that could be reckless use of a firearm. I guess what I'm getting at is that each type of LEO enforces different laws otherwise we'd just have one type of police force. Instead we have local/city police, county sheriff, state troopers, and conservation officers not to mention all the federal law enforcement. Each type concentrates their enforcement efforts on different laws.

but their "jurisdiction" crosses the imaginary line. Often times they don't like to tread into another LEO's area of expertise, but they can if need be.

Don't let anyone fool you, C.O.'s can and do enforce more than environmental/recreational laws.

Look at the Outdoor News Cuffs and Collars - you see alot of DUI arrests and assistance calls.

    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.
