      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 .

To kill a fox

Recommended Posts

troutman

I've got a red fox in the area.It has taken a couple of my neighbor's chickens and has come real close to getting one of mine.I saw it again last night near my coop and then my german sheperd chased it away.Does anyone know of a surefire way to get it other than the obvious hope of getting a good shot at it?

The season on fox is:

10/20/07 - 03/15/08 Fox - Gray and Red Fox opener

I would call the DNR and get a permit because of damage.

Set up a trap or two on the edges of the coop.

I know the law allows the killing of a dog that is killing livestock and it would seem that the law would allow killing a fox that is killing livestock...but you never know.I'll check with the DNR.Having 3 dogs myself,traps are a concern but,might just be my only option.What would be a good bait for fox?

I've trapped about a gabillion fox in my life.

Good bait is pretty much anything you would also use for coon, skunk, possum, etc. Raw fish, chicken, skinned out muskrat.

Hey Amous Slade. Have the old widow Tweed take it to the game preserve for safety, and there he can fall in love with Vixey, a beautiful female fox!!!! Just like in the movie Fox & The Hound. Sorry couldn't resist!!!

why is there a season on fox anyways? im sure its been discussed on the forums before but i never did understand why fox are protected with a season and coyotes are open year-round. has there been an over harvesting of fox in minnesota? are the numbers down that bad? is everybody and their mother out gunning and trapping for them now with above average fur prices?

You may obtain a depradation permit from DNR. We have a couple foxes around our place. They had three little red rascals this spring. Fifty years ago I would have blasted them. I now am old enough to know better.

Everybody's gotta eat and everybodys gotta have some place to hang out.

However; I agree that IF the fox gets to be TOO much of a problem something has to be done. grin.gif
