      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 .

Lifetime licsence question

Recommended Posts

A buddy of mine is looking at buying a house in WI, if he bought his lifetime tags now would he still be eligible to hunt here with out buying an out of state tag?

i believe he would have to buy the lifetime small game, and if he deer hunted the lifetime firearms or archery deer license. I think if you already possess them, and then move out of state you can still come back and hunt/fish without having to pony up for the out-of-state license fees.

Yes he can buy a lifetime license now and hunt MN. after he moves. One of my hunting partners did that before he moved to SD. You have to prove your a MN resident at the time of purchase. Each year he will have to pick up a MN license for that season, but it's been prepaid.

I bought a lifetime fishing license before I moved to WI (now I've moved back), but while I was a WI resident I didn't have to pay anything. And you don't have to show an ID. They gave me a hard plastic card that I could present or I just always gave them my license from last year (with the DNR number) and it would just come up as lifetime with no charge.

BG is correct.

Since i just moved to Fargo, I just got my lifetime sportsman, archery and rifle this past week.

Just send them the check and they mail out a credit card type deal that you present to the dealer when you pick up your license/buy your stamps.

I don't know about whether you can buy it and move out of state and still use it, but I've had a lifetime sportsmen's license for about 5 years. You have to go and get the free HIP certification every year and buy and stamps you need. I haven't tried but you may even be able to do it on line.

It is slick and really makes for a hassle free time and no worries about 'now when does the fishing license expire?'

we had a situation close to that with Adam Vinetari (the place kicker for the Colts) a few years ago. He owned a home with his parents here in Rapid City. However, being that his place of employment and domicle was out of state, he was denied applying for a South Dakota resident elk license. I guess a guy should read the laws/rules on that or talk with the authority. but, the rule here reads, "However, a person who has lawfully acquired a resident hunting, fishing, trapping license and who leaves the state after acquiring the license to take up residency elsewhere MAY continue to excercise all the priviledges granted by the license until it expires if the person's respective priviledges are not revoked or suspended". But, we don't have a lifetime license. Another provision we have is if a land owner leases out his property and lives in another state he CAN NOT buy a resident license. I guess some of these rules are sticky.

So how about this scenario. In MN as a resident you can hunt bobcats with a normal small game license. If you are a non-resident you need a small game license AND a furbearers permit. So if I bought a lifetime small game license, and then moved out of state would I be able to still hunt bobcats on my small game license or would I have to buy furbearers permit to go with it.

I would lean towards not needing a furbearer permit, only because your small game license would say "Resident Lifetime". You dont have to prove to a officer that where you live at that point (in the field). But thats just my guess, best would be to ask the DNR.

I emailed the DNR and asked the question the answer was as long as a lifetime license was purchased as Mn resident it is valid no matter where you move.

Also, for any of you with young kids, I think the cutoff date before the licenses go up in price is before the kids turns 5. I just missed on my Grandson, so now can wait until he is about 15 before deciding to get one for him. I wish I would have gotten mine long ago, but still will, maybe if any stimulus $$ comes our way wink

So even though an addional license is needed by a non-res to hunt bobcats beyond the small game, you are grandfathered in under resident rules because you bought it as a resident.

Paul,

Lifetime license prices vary. I bought my sportsmans, archery and rifle licenses and I paid around $1750 for the three. I am moving to ND here soon so that's why I did this.

By doing this before I move to ND, the licenses will be paid for in just over 4 yrs. If i were to stay a MN resident, they would pay for themselves in just over 20 yrs. (at current prices)

As for the Bobcat question, I would think you're going to have to buy everything a non-resident has to buy.

just out of curiosity, how much is that lifetime license?

The cost varies depending on your age. You have to do a little figuring to determine if it's likely to pay for itself in your hunting lifetime and then you have to factor in possible license increases you would incure if you just bought a non-resident license.

    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
    • I am all for folks finding and sharing a good deal. Just don't let it be a direct link to another forum. thanks
    • CM, what is Chi doing with Hossa?  If Parise can't go or only can give 75% why not shelf him like Chi did with Hossa and save that cap space.
    • Stealing this idea from the old "Meat Sales" thread, where people share info on great deals grocery stores are currently running. Since we're getting close to the hard water season, I thought we could create a thread where people can share any good deals on ice fishing gear or apparel. Anything goes, if you see a sale on ice fishing equipment and think others might be interested in it, let us know.
    • This is a common misconception with LTIR. I too, thought it meant we "saved" money until I read up on it recently. What LTIR actually allows is for a team to go OVER the cap during a player(s) on LTIR, but once they return, they have to get back under the cap. So, true, it would allow them to spend more, but over the long haul it wouldn't be something they could go out and get someone to fill in without haven't to do something when the LTIR players return.
    • Population is up in NW WI where I hunt public land for deer.  I see grouse every time I go to deer stands or scouting, which is much improved over even a couple years ago.  I just can't get one to stand still for a bow shot, they are very skittish over there.  
    • NW Wisconsin public land.  New scrapes started appearing mid last week.   A couple were freshly hit on Sunday when I was out.  None were very big.    Interestingly I did see a small 6pt buck in the open at lunch time while I was scouting spots, and based on the direction he was going he was working his way to a logging road that had a scrape and tracks on it.
