      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 .

I think you can do this at Carlos Avery, but you would nee to get the permit to do this from the DNR.

Actually, you can't release any species of game in Carlos Avery or many WMA's from the research I have done.

There is one place near Millaca (Four Brooks WMA) that does allow dog training and releasing of birds and I think it is somewhat run by a training group (MNNAVHDA) and you need to pay a membership (not 100% sure on that though).

Private land is one of the only places where that training permit actually works from what I have found. The permit allows you to shoot non-native species that are properly marked (painted or a piece of ribbon) during non-hunting season.

Possibly state forests but you should contact the local CO to find out for sure.

When i was at their office handing in my application the lady told me that i could release the birds on any state land as long as i properly marked them, had the receipt from where i purchased them and had the permit with me.

You may have been told that, but I would still recommend calling to double check. I called the Carlos Avery headquarters this summer and know for sure I was told no releasing of birds. I also called regarding some other areas but don't remember exactly which ones.

I would be interested in know what other places people have contacted or found to be legal.

Bobb-o...what office were you at?

Try Maple island Hunt Club east of hugo. It is a large farm for cattle mostly for a fee you can train there all year.

Thanks. Looks like the maple islan hunt club will work great. I got the permit for training and it reads that you can release birds and hunt them up as long as you have the proper paperwork. The lady also said it was ok just to check with the local dnr officer. Lucky I did, and you CAN'T release any animal into any WMA.

Thanks
