      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Deer hunting

Recommended Posts

How do licenses work in Iowa for non-residents? Probably bow hunt and possibly muzzleload. DO we have to apply for a buck tag or just buy over the counter? We just gained access to 1300 acres to hunt. and was just wondering. thanks

This is the information that I found on the Iowa DNR HSOforum. I hope that this helps.

Nonresident Deer Hunting Zones

Nonresidents must have a 2008 Nonresident Deer Hunting License, a 2008 Nonresident Small Game

Hunting License and have paid the 2008 Habitat Fee to hunt deer in Iowa. Let me know how you turn out... Okay?

Nonresidents must apply

for an any-deer license

beginning at 6 a.m. on

the first Saturday in

May through the first

Sunday following Memorial

Day. The nonresident

application will

be available in April.

Licenses may be applied

for through the DNR’s

web-based license sales

system or by calling

1-800-367-1188. For

more information, visit

the Iowa DNR HSOforum

at or

call 515-281-5918.

I think you have to pick just 1 season to hunt IE: Archery or ML but not both. Your also limited to the zone your land lies in, while a resident can hunt state wide. Make sure the ground your going to be hunting is in 1 zone not split into different ones.

Also, each zone has a nonresident quota. Only a percentage of the tags available can be archery. Depending on the zone you're applying for, your chances of drawing in year 1 can either be almost certain, to almost impossible. If you don't draw this year, you get a preference point for the following year. Some nonresident zones are so popular that it can take 2 preference points to draw.

Of course, the above information is for an any-deer license. Nonresidents can get antlerless licenses much more easily, and if you are here for gun season, this would allow you to party hunt with residents who have an any-deer tag. Good luck.

It usually takes about 3 years of applying to get drawn in the lottery as a non resident for Iowa anysex deer tag. Late season muzzleloader is the least hard to get drawn for. Archery is the hardest. 1300 acres of hunting land access would be worth it!
