      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 .

ATV REGISTRATION? 25 year old atv?

Recommended Posts

What is the deal with not having to register an atv if it is 25 years or older? I have a 1984 Suzuki that still runs good and I use it occasionally to haul out a deer and for ice fishing. I just got my registration card in the mail which shows that I need to pay $51 to register.

So if it's a 1984 doesn't that make is 25 years old in 2009? Do I need to register it? Do I risk it and drive around with the expired tabs in January or do I really need to buy the new tabs.

There has got to be others out there with ATV's over 25 years old that are in the same situation. What do you do?

In that case, if you could find something else to get you by until January 1st, I would save the $51 and hold out.

The regs do say 25 years or older don't need to be registered. But what about using it on a state trail or roadway right-of-way? Would it still need registration anyway? It appears that it would.

I wonder about that too. I emailed the DNR and all with my questions and this is all they replied back with?????

"On page 11 of the OHV regulations book it states that ATVs that are 25 years and older, registration is not required."

DNR License Center

So I'm not sure how to take it?

Sounds to me you can either not use it for 29 days when it will be 2009 and thus 25 years old, or register it and use it without any worries, or just use it anyways and risk getting fined for the next 29 days. Take your pick. I know with my luck on getting checked I wouldn't take the 3rd option, and if money is tight I wouldn't take the 2nd option.

Orangestew, that's my point too. It's clear that 25 years or older don't require registration. But, what's unclear, it also says registered ATV's can be used on state land, right-of-ways, roadways where permitted, etc.

It could be interpretted that it would need to be registered if used in this manner regardless of age. Seems to me it's a gray area that needs an answer and the DNR didn't give it to you.

I have an '83 ATC that is registered to the end of 2009 so I'm good now but will be wondering what to do at the end of next year.

Statute 84.922 REGISTRATION

https://www.revisor.leg.state.mn.us/statutes/?id=84.922&year=2008

You can ride anywhere you legally can ride.

Looks like I've paid my last registration fees on the old 1984 Suzuki. I'll be sure to have my old registration and a copy of Statute 84.922 REGISTRATION

Thanks for stepping in Frank.

I didn't have time this afternoon to pull the info and was going to dig up the answer this evening.

Same boat here also.

The old '84 Honda TRX 200 doesn't need to be renewed also.

..........Wonder if I could get a collector plate or something????

Also, I think the registrations are good through the end of the year. So if it is registered now, you're good to go. I would think the only reason you would want to register it is if you took it out of state.

    • Fletcher is gone, pretty impartial to this, will be interesting to see who they bring in and what they do to shake up the team. Overall I think he was a good gm but not great, pulled us out of the dark ages but never seemed to get us over the hump. New GM will have a much better starting point as far as players and assets go.  https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nhl/2018/04/23/wild-split-with-gm-chuck-fletcher-after-playoff-exit/34168091/
    • I made some maybe 5 years ago and put one on a tree and the other at the end peak on a garage. The one on the garage had bats in the first year, the one on the tree finally had some in last year. 2 different designs so that may have made a difference. I made 1 for my daughter 3 years ago and put it on the garage and they used it the 2nd year. Mine are black- hers a dark brown. Don't put them in an area where bat dump can be a problem.  Good luck with them.
    •   Thanks. I get a kick out of people saying they need to brush in their blinds.  This was right in the middle of a corn field on it's highest spot, as visible as can be.
    •   Congrats Don, like the corn field picture.
    • Yep, excellent suggestions fellas!  If it's nice out this evening (supposed to be) we're going to go give it a try.  I'll bring lots of snacks, camera, binocs, and maybe even a tablet for her to play on.  
    • Not exactly bird related, but close enough. Do any of you have a bat house? I want to get one, but don’t exactly know where to put it. I see that DNR mounts them on long polls at boat launches and campgrounds, but I don’t really want to go that route. I’m wondering if a tree, or the side of my garage would suffice? Is there any benefits to painting them black? And how successful are they at attracting bats? How long did it take for them to show up? Amazon sells bat house attractant, but it’s pretty spendy. 
    • Maybe she needs more to do in the blind.   Camera and binoculars to watch the other critters running around.  Maybe some after dinner shorter evening hunts if you can set up where they like to roost and catch birds coming back.
    • I took this picture in March of 2017 near my parent's house.  I've never seen turkeys cross ice like that...  They were headed towards a farmer's silos, probably looking for an easy meal.     
    • Best time of the year.  Lots of gobbling near me as well this weekend.  Great job!
