      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 .

Are these legal to be used in waterfowl prodution areas? I know you can't use them in wildlife man. areas. A grey area in the law ---can you use them if not all the water is in the wildlife man area and some private land. Or is all the water off limits?

No, you can't use them in WPA.

This is good question. Here is the wording from the DNR:

"On water bodies and lands fully contained with state wildlife management area boundries, a person may not use motorized decoys or motorized devices designed to attract migratory waterfowl at anytime during the duck season"

I hunt a wma where half of the water is in the boundries and a quarter of the boundry is state land and the other quarter is private. That would make it legal to use motorized decoys if I am intrepting it correctly. Am I right?

Interesting.....I know of an instance where a river runs through a WMA. So according to the regs I am legal using a motorized spinner as long as I am on the River.

The question still stands. If only part of the area on the body of water is in the WMA the other is not, is all the water open to spinning wind decoys or not? Hope someone can figure this one out. Know of a few areas where some private land butts up to the water on waterfowl prduction areas. I know most people say if not sure don't risk it.

I think it is a gray area. I wouldn't personally and would use a wind powered spinning wing decoy. That is legal either way.

I hunt a lake partially contained in a WPA and lots of people use them including me later in the year. There is public and private ownership on this lake.

My understanding from the wording is you can use them on production areas. The only area you can't use them is where the pond is completely in a management area.
