      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 .

Military Preference Question

Recommended Posts

Shoot2Kill

Hello all - I love what MN does for military veterans with the free license and service preference - I think all states should do the same. I spent the summer in Iraq with my Air National Guard unit so I qualify for these benefits and I have a question regarding the 2008 turkey applications.

Here is what the application says -

A Minnesota resident who is currently serving, or has served at any time during the past 24 months, in active service as a member of the United States armed forces, including the National Guard or other military reserves will be given first preference to qualified service members or veterans. Applicants must complete and submit a Preference To Service Members application after they apply for lottery and before the drawing. Application is available at all ELS agents or DNR’s web site (www.dnr.state.mn.us.). It will cost $3.00 to apply for a spring wild turkey license.

How would this work if I was wanting to apply with a group -(1 other person who has 1 preference point). The application says the person with the lowest preference point determines the preference points for the group. Would the same apply with the military preference? Basically what I'm asking...I have a guaranteed tag if I apply on my own - can putting in with a group risk my chances of being drawn? Is one preference point all you need to draw typically so we shouldn't have to worry about it? Have any of you service members run into this?

Gobble, gobble...it's only 5 months away.

Shoot2kill:

First off, thanks for all you do. I have a best friend over there right now, and I can't wait to get him back over here for some more spring turkey hunts.

Regarding your tag situation, it sounds unique, and I'd run it past several people at DNR HQ.

That said, I'd seriously think twice about applying as a group. It can be a great thing if you both need to be on the trigger-end, however, I like keeping everyone's odds up, maybe even having him apply for a differen zone/time-period, and hunting together both times. You get a two-for-one deal. You can only "hunt" with your own tag one of those two-times, but maybe the other time you call, or videotape, etc.

Those are some good points - thank you. We have decided to apply separately just to not jeopardize the one for sure tag.

I can't wait for spring!
