      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 .

Landowner list and finding a place to hunt.

Recommended Posts

How exactly does the landowner list work. I always just hunt public land. If you are hunting another season than what they hunted can they say no? I have never had much luck gaining permission in the past. I didn't get drawn in 236c where I usually hunt by home. But got a surplus tag in 346b down by winona. I have however, never hunted down there.Anyone have any ideas as to where to hunt?

If they are on the list, they have to let you hunt, sort of. They are allowed to deny permission based on how many acres they have, how many birds, and how many hunters they have already given permission to. So it leaves them a lot of outs to deny you by saying they have X number of hunters already coming out when they really don't.

In my experience the landowners on the list are very unlikely to let you hunt before them. So in your case, since you have a "B" tag, unless they have an "A" season tag, good luck, but some guys with lots of acres still might let you go.

They can also say, "oh, we don't have that many birds, plus we already have 4 other guys coming out too". When in reality there is no one else and they have tons of birds.

It is a case where some landowners want a tag every year, but don't want to let anyone hunt. They shouldn't put in for that preference then, its [PoorWordUsage]. If you have a ton of trouble remind them that they are supposed to let you hunt, and since you have a B tag there can't be that many others there before you so there should be enough birds. Get in touch with the local CO if you are having a ton of trouble. My dad and I were eligible for landowner preference in the past but never used it since we didn't want to have to let others on out place. To me its greedy to want the tag and then not let people on. We're up by North Branch/Sunrise and there are tons of landowners on the list that will for sure turn you down. When I tried getting some permission for exta spots getting turned down by people on the list got old real quick, and I was hunting season G-H with my bow.

Thanks, I was going to try to contact some of the land owners that hunt the A season, hoping that because they were done that I would maybe have a chance. Otherwise I guess public land it is. Thanks for your input. I usually hunt up in 236 by Forest lake where I live. But I just can't miss a season so thus why I bought the surplus tag. For a different area.

johnsd16 has hit it right on the head. It's very hard to get permission from alot of these land owners to hunt on their property. All they will say is that they have other people hunting on their land and you are shut out.The land owner tag system is an abused system in my opion anyway. Half of the people I know that get landowner tags don't even hunt on their own land because thay have no turkeys on their land to even hunt in the first place! Just a way to get a tag.

DRH shoot me an email at rrgierke at yahoo dot com. I have hunted down there for several years and have land owner and public land contacts that I am willing to share. I am actually hunting up here this year.

Good Luck guys finding places to go. I can understand landowners a bit. When geese became popular, people would follow them out of town see them land in my field, then I turned away 74 vehicles for opening morning, we kept track because it was unreal. The closer to town the worse it is. Now with about 100 turkeys on my land, same thing, getting bombarded with requests and phone calls. And now after all this rain etc., I leave my dirt driveway off limits,only use the tar, it now has deep ruts that guess who has to fix,the people I talk to or my wife we steer them back out the tar, but people are coming over when we are not home and my driveway is a mess, it got so crazy I don't even want to go to the door anymore, I need a sign at the driveway's end that says no turkey or geese here. But, it isn't so bad in places and I wish you all the luck in the world.

Musky, its one thing if you are getting bombarded just as a landowner but when these guys put in for the landowner drawing so they have a better chance at a tag and then don't let anyone hunt. That's [PoorWordUsage], the rules are the rules. If you don't want to let people hunt, put in for the landowner preference and draw like the rest of us. There are enough tags now that putting in for landowner seems silly. My dad is eligible but he doesn't do it, since he/we don't want to "have to" let others on the property.

There's too many that want to have their cake and eat it too.

Right on john, I hear ya how some abuse the landowner permit situation. It was really my own fault I didn't put saw horses up and block that driveway off, I figured who would want to put there vehicle through that mess, maybe some disgruntled hunters. These geese and now turkeys can easily be seen from the road and word travels that hey, there is a bunch of them at Musky Buck's. Didn't realize how popular turkey hunting was getting. I have noticed just this week the Toms seem to be splitting up, not seeing them together as much, loners. Good luck finding a place, I wish the landowner license people would act in good faith, I'm sure most do, but the ones turning people away saying they already have hunters when they don't is just another reg. gettin abused.

You shouldn't have to put up saw horses, but what do you do, signs? Crappy situation that your drive is getting messed up. We have always had woods so we have never gotten tons of door knocks.

    • I would think so, it would be no different than parking on the shoulder of the road. my commit was more related to people that put up barriers, to keep others from crossing there approach.
    •   Sounds plausible to me.  Is the thickened footing in your mind the same as pouring the perimeter of the slab thicker?  We did an 8 inch perimeter around the 4 inch slab.
    • Yes. But on a post framed building the only think I ever see is a thickened footing and not a foundation to the frost line. A major benefit of post framing is that you install the posts below the frost line so the need for a concrete foundation below the frost line is not needed. If I am understanding the question correctly. 
    • FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone.   May a person park their own vehicle in their own driveway approach?
    • I think they’re more looking at the footings requirement, aren’t they?  Thus the reason for getting the poles below the frost line?   Its the township’s responsibility to figure this out and you have the right to ask them to cite the code they’re following.   I used to live in Isanti County and dealt with a building inspector from my township on the construction of my detached garage.  Things weren’t very strict to say the least.     We built everything by the current UBC code, so I’d suggest first getting a copy of the current version of that since this building will actually be your home.  Don’t take unnecessary shortcuts to save a few bucks up front.  You’ll eventually regret it.   Reading your plans for the slab, it sounds pretty good.  There are plenty of slab homes out there built the way you describe.  What you don’t want is movement.     I’m not an expert by any means but I think footings on your slab wouldn’t be a bad idea and sinking your poles that deep should be a requirement.  If you don’t do footings, at least pour your slab thicker on the perimeter to hold it better.    Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can be more restrictive than code, but not less.  So if it’s defined in the UBC, you have to do at least that much.
    • I’ve personally been on both sides of this.   Used to love getting as much air as possible over driveways but I never understood gunning it on the other side after crossing.  I guess some are just mild adrenaline junkies.    I quit doing that for one, because it’s illegal, and two, not safe if the homeowner happens to be leaving or getting the mail at the time.   Now that I have a posted trail going over my driveway, I find it just rude, obnoxious and irritating to deal with 4 wheelers and sleds gunning it over the gravel and making ruts and eroding my base to the point of it being an expense to either plow and pack the class 5 back in place or spend the money to pave it.  I hate having to bounce over two ruts with my trailers and whatever I’m hauling in them too.   I think that’s the worst part for me.  Either jump it or be mellow on the throttle the entire way over.   I’ve seen trail groomers go around driveways before, making me wonder if that truly is a requirement or they were simply being courteous.  But I agree with knoppers, they should not drag over the driveway.  Maybe they think they’re taking the snow off for ya.  Call the people responsible for the trail and ask them for suggestions.  
    • If you want to get through ice fast and are going to re-tool for it completely, look at a Nils before making your final decision. 
    • I am fully aware of this as are most people.
    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation.
