      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 .

I've never hunted out of state, but I'd sure like to try. I'm looking into some WI stuff, but it kills me to pay $160 for a tag. YIKES!!

yes Andy, the outstate tags can get a little spendy. I hunt ND every year and purchase 4-5 tags annually and it does cost. I'm lucky enough not to have to pay for lodging and have a ranch to stay and hunt at for no charge.

I hear you Powerstroke but some other states like Illinois are really pumping it up for out of staters. $365 if I am not mistaken. I would love to go out West some year for an archery elk hunt, even if its just for a cow! The experience itself would be awesome.

I am hunting ND near Mandan this year with a buddy on a 1000 private acres. I have bought my over the counter white-tail either sex tag/license for $215. The landowner is fine with us shooting a buck as long as we take an honest attempt at also shooting a doe. I can understand this.

My question is does ND have a specific tag for does only (like MN does with bonus tags?) or do I just have to purchase another tag/license for $215? I'd like 2 tags then I can save one for one of the dandy bucks the landowner has seen the pat few years and another for a doe. If all else fails I will make an attempt to shoot 2 does if I have the proper tags.

Since I am licensed do I just need to purchase another tag for a reduced Non-resident rate?

North Dakota Game and fish has not got back to me regarding this issue.

Thinking about going to Ohio for a hunt this fall, if everything pans out. I do hate to leave my backyard when there is so many good bucks here. Grass is always greener you know. smile.gif

When the rifle lottery is over, there will be some first come, first serve doe tags for $50.00 each. Depending on the zone you are in will depend on just how many there will be. Usually, alot of tags left. Watch the North Dakota game & Fish website and they will post the remaining tags per zone.

Heading back to NW ND, have a muley or whitetail either sex tag. hunting sept 15th-22nd this year. Shot my first muley last year at 3yrds. Only a fork but what a rush, sitting on the ground. For anyone who is looking for affordable hunts, you can still find some unguided hunts on some of these ranchs for as little as $500-800 a week. This may not sound affordable but for anyone that has booked trips outstate thru an outfitter knows what a steal this is. More home work but well worth it.

I am heading to Alaska over Labor Day. We are going for 6 days. My Dad lives in Wassila and a guy that does work for him is a local and is taking us out. We are going after caribou. I'm getting pretty excited. And the best part is I only have to pay airfare and the tag. We I have been shooting 2 to 3 times a weeks for the last 2 months. Has any body been up there? Not sure what to expect.The guy that is taking us was a guide for many years on Kodic island and has shot many karibou. Did I mention I'm excited

Not an outstate hunt but and buddy and I are talking about camping in a non-motorized area for and week and bowhunting and fishing. It will have the feel of a big trip, but you're only a half hour or so from home! grin.gif

I wouldn't be so averted to the price of tags if I had an idea of the area or had a place to stay at the least. It just becomes a very expensive trip if you're not able to do some research or know someone out there.

I would love to do some combo hunts in ND/SD and I would love to try for Elk and Moose. I think a Archery Moose hunt would be my dream.

Mt Elk hunt for me 10 days in MT near Helena. Hopefully everything goes how it is suppose to. I might get back into bowhunting for whitetails if I have some time this fall that is the biggest problem for me. Anymore room in your camp Harvey wink.gif. Maybe I can work a trip out to the Watford City area for a mule deer time will tell.

My need for hunt is more dependant upon my having time to hunt. Working construction and getting jobs done before freeze up don't always allow alot of time for hunting. For the rifle season I have that taken care of but if I get myself back into archery more again which I would like too I might be.

When archery season gets closer and if you have the time, we may be able to work out some weekends or weekdays.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.

      I saw this on the Wright County website today: http://www.wrightswcd.org/Water_Mana...e_species.html
      There's a link in Blue on the home page.


      Sounds like they are having a meeting about it on AUG 23. From talking to the DNR, I believe they didn't allow the initial dates for this to happen. Mostly because there was really no comment period on it. Sounds like they are gonna have it now. Guess if your against it, now's your chance to speak up. You can also send in written comments. Not sure exactly to who, at least I didn't see that part clearly. Maybe to Alicia O'Hare.


      Like others have said, I believe their ultimate goal is to have this implemented county wide at some point. When you look at the committee info, most groups are lake associations. Hopefully it still can be stopped. Here is the DNR person I called on this, she was helpful: Heidi Wolf - 651-259-5152

      Anyone else have new info on this?

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.
