      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 plan to start trapping this year for the first time and I have a few questions. First off what do I need to do to an animal after I trap it in order to get paid for it? Will I have to do anything more than skinning the animal before I sell it? Also after reading the regulations I was somewhat confused when they talked about registeriung furbearers. Do all animals need to be registered or just certain ones? I plan on trying to trap beavers, mink and coons if that helps you answer my question.

Thanks,

Joe

Joe, you need to find someone to pal around with, just to get you started. There are alot of things, too many to mention here, to get you off and running. After you catch an animal, you will skin it, and the stretch and dry it. If you catch Bobcats, fisher, marten, and or otters, these critters have to be registered. The beaver, muskrats, coon, mink, fox, both red and grey, coyotes, skunks and badgers do not have to be registered. Good luck, welcome to the trapping world.

leechmann is right. my uncles trap have the fur shed. Catch, skin, scrape, stretch, dry, sell. I don't trap but sometime i go run the trapline with my uncles. I hunt yotes, though and last 2 years i have skinned, scrapped and sold the fur raw to a well known trapping supplier/buyer in Owatonna, MN mostly because i can't get down to the fur shed, but i think i have come out better as they still have furs waiting to be sold. If you want info on the MN Trappers Association let me know, 3 of my uncles are very involved, although they live down here in Southern MN.
