      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 .

Tresspass or harrass?

Recommended Posts

Back home I have a tree 10 yards from a fencline on stateland. For obvious reasons fencelines are dynamite at times and this stand is no exception. The issue in question is the angry landowner who claims its a tresspass simply becasue the stand faces his land and a long bow shot could be made over his fence. The stand faces the property becasue its the best position for a righthanded shooter and it allows us to remain hidden the best. We dont fling arrows over the border. In a weeks time he has come out twice and on both occassions he cussed, swore, yelled, hooted, and hollered up and down about getting the **** off his land. Each time he left with threats, more swearing, laying on the horn and doing cookies in the field nearby ( 50yards). Now if my interpretation of the law is correct, there is no distance a guy has to be from private land as long as he dosent step there. And the noise, threats, visit, from the landowner constitutes as hunter harrassment...Am I right?? What to do in this situation?? I could see this situtation leading to the landowner cutting down the stand if left there and some very hard feelings between landowners, sportsmen, and DNR in general..

Report this to the local game warden. Then get a small tape recorder or bring your video camera along. when u c the jerk start taping and give the evidence to the game warden. Very clearly this is hunter harrassment and the guy should be arrested

Had the same thing happen bear hunting. I think you would be pleasantly surprised at the position the CO's take on hunter harrassment. Explain what is going on and I bet you, he will come out to the stand with you so when Mr. Landowner starts in, the CO will take over from there. I think that ought to solve the problems...

Good Luck!

Bring Digi video recorder and get video and audio of him threating you and go to police!

Minus that, I would switch hunting area's. No deer is worth having harm done onto you or another!

Not sure if the"500" foot rule applies for bow hunting. But, if you are within 500 feet from an occupied building with a firearm, then, he has a point. Although, he acted like a (Contact Us Please) making his point.

Even if the tree is on your side of the fence hanging over his side you are fine if you aren't shooting on his side. Game warden time for sure. Don't mess with the guy on your own. Too many nuts out there!

P.S. Can you leave a stand on state land? You may want to check that out.

I wasnt implying that I was going to deal with the issue myself. I was saying that I would handle the situation differently. rather than ignore the guy I would be nice and Get his liscense plate numbers and description if the harrasment happened to me. The incident happened on a WMA and as far as I know your not supposed to leave stands up. PPl do, but in this case it was a hang on stand that we just move around as we see fit, but we always remove it after the hunt overnight ( more so in fear that it would get stolen).

      I've gotten a lot of eyes this year, this being my best. Several in the 24" range and a LOT of eaters. A buddy and I took my mom out fishing and we got our limit of eater eyes in about an hour and a half. Good times!

      Nice! That looks like a good time.

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      OK thank you thinking about going up first week in September

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
