      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 .

so hows this working now.

i buy an all season liscence so for archery I can shoot a doe no matter what! now am i able to take a buck in the lottery zone also if i have shot a doe in a lottery zone? i would use one of the antlerless tags for the doe and use the either sex for the buck. from what i read i dont think i can i think you can only take 1 deer out of the lottery zones per year. even if i would get drawn for a doe permit would i be allowed to shoot a buck in a lottery zone? some one help me clarify this up its kinda blurry. thanks

Go back a few pages and you can read some of the past topics like 2007 Hunting Regulations where this has been throughly discussed.

The way I understand it. If you hunt a lottery area, you can only tag one deer no matter what.

exactly, unless you tag your other deer in some other non-lottery area.

Does this mean one deer per lottery zone or one deer in any lottery zone and any other deer has to be taken in a non-lottery zone?

The way I read it & it was discussed. You can shoot one deer total between all lottery areas you hunt.

That would make sense. Since you can't use a bonus permit in a lottery ares, you'd have to use your either sex tag and be done hunting lottery areas. You could, however move to managed and intensive areas to secure as many bonus permits as allowe and hunt there, correct?

Yes, one more in one managed area & up to four more in intensive areas, depending on how many you've tagged already, total of five. If it were me I wouldn't shoot a doe in a lottery area with my bow until after gun season, otherwise if Mr. Big walks by you can't shoot him, unless you're party hunting with someone who will tag it. You would be done hunting in lottery areas. I'm not sure if you have to use your either sex tag or if you could still use a doe tag. I won't be hunting any lottery areas, but I thought it said you could use both doe tags if you wanted on your All-Season in a managed area & could still fill your buck tag in an Intensive area. I think the key is the number of deer killed in the areas, not so much doe or buck, but I could be wrong about that.

lcornice can you clarify that for us? Thanks

Whatever number of deer that are allowed in each area is the total you can have. Lottery area 1 deer, Managed I believe is 2 total, and Intensive is up to 5. It does not matter if they are all does (permit required in lottery), but you can not shoot more than one buck.

However, if you shoot a Buck in a lottery area, you can go to another area that is intensive harvest or managed and shoot your other deer, up to 5 total.

Now this is new to me. If you buy an all season license to hunt 4A and are unsuccessful during Firearms season, you are not allowed to muzzleload hunt? That is what the guy at Gander Mtn. said to my father-in-law. That doesn't make a bit of sense. Why buy an all season license then, especially when it is a lottery area.

The guy at Gander had it wrong, or you understood him wrong.

If you are successful during the 4A season in a Lottery area, or anytime, you are done tagging deer in a Lottery area. You could still party hunt with someone who has an open tag.

      I found exactly the same thing today. It was a steady 5" walking to the fishing spot. 3" of ice on the spot, if that. Cracks everywhere. Water pushing out of holes I had drilled. Not good.

      Is the Frabill a thermal flip over? It sounds like a steal to me. I would go for it if you’re looking for a house that has more room. I have a Frabill 2 man thermal flip over and I really like it.

      I love my frabill !!

      Steve, Thanks for helping me get a deal on my Otter. I was able to pick it up at Marine General on Monday. Can't believe all of the ice stakes that came with it. Bought one of the Eskimo drill adapters to install them.

      Just out on 1st Lake after work 5” solid clear ice out to 17’ of water

      Any new updates on the ice thickness.  Looking to get out on walk-able ice this weekend.  Seems like the darn winds blows 45 mph every day lately.
    • nofishfisherman
      Thanks for the reply, I'll check them out.

      I went out on Horseshoe on Sunday and where the ice remained from the first freeze it is a solid 6 in.  Where it recently froze over last week its was 3 inches at best.  Now that we have snow cover it will be hard to find that line.  I was out with the wheeler on sunday but stayed on the "old" ice that I knew was "safe".  I wouldn't use a wheeler from the access or go exploring quite yet.  Plan on heading back out Thursday and will try and give an update

      went out last night. 2.5-3" of solid clear ice. Single digits last night and still pretty cold today...wouldn't be surprised to find another inch when i head out this evening.  Forecast temps have been lowered a few degrees so we shouldnt be losing any ice through the week/weekend. Hopefully making a bit more each night. Breaking out the popup this weekend!

      So there's a guy that wants to trade his Frabill 3 man side door entry flip over ice house for my one man clam Legend thermal Ice House. Thinking I might go for it but was wondering if I should stay away from Frabill for any reason? Wondering if I could get any input and if this is a good deal or not. Thanks in advance.
