      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 .

Hunting method restriction

Recommended Posts

colonel42

This is out of the 2007 MN hunting regulation. Page 72 fouth bullet. The restriction does not apply to a person hunting their own property, when the person has not participated in, been involved with, or agreed to feeding wildlife on adjacent land owned by another person.

I work with a woman that tells me she can hunt over corn. Her explanation was a quote out of the MN regs. As I read it, it almost sounds like a land owner can do this. Any thoughts or am I reading this total wrong???

I think the key word here is "NOT". You can hunt near bait (not on your land) if you have not been involved in the placement of the bait. I believe this was added to the laws because some people would dump bait next to a neighbors property to pervent them from hunting there.

Luckey, you are correct. However, there are 2 other keys words that people seem to gloss over. Adjacent means next to and other means someone besides you.

Also, there have been several posts on this topic in the past. I think this horse is probably dead.

This is the quote that screws everyone up. The restriction does not apply to a person hunting their own property. In my book that tells me if I own property the restrictions of feeding (Baiting) is OK if I own the property I hunt. I sat in my stand the other day and read the book from cover to cover and there are a lot of things that can be misinterpreted. Kind of like legal papers you would receive from a lawyer. Mumbo jumbo.

I guess I don't see it that way. Reading the quote I in no way infer I can dump bait on land that is my own property and hunt over it. It talks about bait that is on adjacent land to your's that you had nothing to do with. So to me, its pretty clear you cannot bait on your own land from this quote.

I read it like this. If the neighboring landowner dumps a bunch of corn in the corner of his field, you can hunt by it as long as you are on your property and as long as you didn't help place it. Just my 2 cents

I agree, I think it is explicit in describing 'on adjacant land owned by another person'.

I would also be leary of hunting a corner of the field "knowing" that it is baited. IE: hunting in the corner directly across the line from someone who is knowingly baiting and you know they are baiting. I think that is stretching the law into some real gray area. You should/could be guilty by association. You know baiting is illegal and you did not report the activity but used it for your gain.

I think a CO might not look the other way as you are trying to circumvent the law by doing so. I think the law was written to protect those who are hunting their land and find a heavily used trail and take a deer off said trail. But the deer are using the trail solely to get to 'Joe Hunter's' deer bait on the adjacent property. This would absolve you from being ticketed for hunting bait. Because you did not know, nor did you participate in said activity on or off your land.

My perception...

Good Luck!

Ken

      It’s been interesting in Central MN so far.  There are plenty of lakes that have very walkable ice and ice that could hold ATV traffic but also several that stayed mostly to partly open for longer than expected.  Several lakes have both rideable ice and open water as of last weekend. There are only a couple lakes that I’ve been tracking that I would commit to an ATV ride on right now, especially with the new snow cover.  We lost the ability to see what “generation” of ice you were on this week.  On the plus side, we’ve had good ice making conditions all week. Short story: There are lakes that are ready to fish but don’t assume they all are.  Phone ahead to a resort or bait shop to find out about particular lakes if you don’t get the info here.  Buy your bait at the shop that gives you your key info. Be extra cautious this weekend until you’ve proven the ice you want to fish.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck
