      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 .

crossbows

does anybody know if a crossbow can be legally used as a firearm for hunting, especially in areas where the use of rifles is not allowed during hunting. Ya know, shotgun zones. Or would you need to have a disability form saying you needed to use a crossbow instead of a regular bow. This may sound confusing, but a guy at work wants to know if using the crossbow you are always considered to be archery hunting.

Last year, the legislature allowed for crossbows during the firearm season. The simplest interpretation is that instead of a gun, you can use a crossbow instead. If an area is closed to gun hunting (say a state game refuge), you cannot hunt there with a crossbow during the firearm season. All the law does is allow you to use the crossbow instead of a gun. You still need a firearm license, the area has to be open to firearm hunting, etc. So, the answer to your question is no, you cannot use a crossbow during the gun season in an area that is not open to gun hunting.

What the legislature passed is completely separate from the disability statute that allows people to use a crossbow instead of a vertical bow. That regulation is unchanged from previous year.

Can I hunt deer with a vertical bow within 500 feet of house or livestock?
