      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 .

Change in Baiting Law

Recommended Posts

Have any of you seen the change in baiting for deer? I read the article in the paper and checked the regulations and if you own the land you can use bait? I am not here to argue if that is right or wrong I am just curious. I know in years past even the landowner could not do that but the way I interpret the law (not a lawyer) it seems to me you could hunt over bait if you hunt on land you own Page 72 in the hunting regulations "The restriction does not apply to a person hunting on 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."

Wobb- I think you are reading the reg wrong in my opinion.. .I think this law was for people who had small plots of land.. and the nexd door neighbor had a feeder.. In years before you could not hunt within so far of a feeder... But with the new law... You can still hunt your land, as long as you have nothing to do with putting out the bait/food.

I hope someone corrects me if I am wrong.

Thanks for your opinion. I don't own land so it does not affect me but the way the law is written it could easily be misunderstood! Not knowing what you told me in your above post which makes sense to me, if I was to play devil's advocate I could say as long as I don't advocate feeding or baiting next to my land I could hunt and use bait on my land.

Deitz is absolutely correct.

The rule clearly states that you can hunt your own land even if the neighbor has baited the area adjacent to your land. This rule was developed to prevent previuos hunter harassment where the adjacent land owner would bait deer to prevent his neighbor from hunting near it (even if they were on there own land)

People - You can not bait deer - period.

DD's got it right. The law is intended to not penalize someone hunting on their own land if the neighbor is baiting or feeding deer.

The past regulation would still allow a CO to ticket you if you hunted on trails leading to bait whether the bait was on your property or not. SOme guys only had a small chunk of land and that law would make hunting it impossible. Now, as long as you don't have anything to do with the feeding of the deer and it does not take place on your property, you are safe to hunt it. The only thing I would still avoid is hunting within site of the feeding station... even if the station is on the neighbors piece and you are hunting yours. I think they may still be able to tag you then. I amy be wrong, but I'd avoid that situation.

Good Luck!

Ken

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though
