      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 .

MN Bear License

Recommended Posts

KOTTKE

Had an interesting conversation with a friend of mine regarding MN bear license process. Why are we not required to purchase a license prior to baiting. There seems to be a shortage every year in a number of zones. We both know of people who apply every year and don't alway purchase a license to hunt either because of time constants or lack a bear activity. Would it not be a better system to have all hunters purchase license on or befor Aug.1st, and then allow all surplus licenses to be purchased over the counter after that. There is so much time between application deadlines and actual drawings that many folks forget and make other commitments that will not allow them to hunt. Also there is the issue of additional funds for our ever broke MN DNR.

I disagree as baiting does not start till Aug. 15 and some baits never get hit so that hunter that was drawn sometimes will not purshase that license so if he needs to buy it by Aug. 1st and his baits never get hit he will still not hunt and we are in the same boat just that he was forced to spend $39.00 which is good for the DNR but the license is still not availible for the unsuccessfull applicate.

I also think it makes sense to require a license to bait.

I do not know if it is the same as a turkey license but if you are drawn and your bait is not hit then you have the option to not purchase the license and keep your preferance points? I know that is the way it works with the turkey drawings.

I just think the hunt begins when you start to bait, my point was that too many folks apply with the bet intentions, but never purchase a tag, leaving many folks out there that would love to buy a tag, even if you don't have success with baiting its a great chance to get out early in the year and get into the woods, its amazing what you can see sitting over a bait pile even if a bear doesn't show.
