      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 .

WI non-resident bowhunting?

Recommended Posts

bmc

My dad and I are looking at bowhunting WI next fall, in the 60B unit. From looking at the WI DNR pamphlet, we can buy our non-res license over the counter and that includes a buck tag and a doe tag at $160 and addt'l doe tags are $2 a piece? It looks like we could shoot a buck first and then a doe or vice versa? I turkey hunted this area last spring and the landowners I talked to gave me the impression that they have too many deer and need to get rid of some! grin.gif

When does the pre-rut and actual rut start in this area?

Brian,

I hunt Wisconsin every year, but only with a rifle during the last few years. $160 gets you an either sex tag and an antlerless tag. You will need to make sure that 60B is not earn a buck (then you would have to shoot an antlerless first) and don't plan any trips during the T-zone (antlerless only with the rifle). Pre-rut and rut should coincide with our area pretty well. I see your Dad occasionally and I can fill him in or maybe we might have to chase some 'gills this winter. Give me a call some time.

Brian, Jason prtetty much nailed it. Former ranger myself from Lawrence Lake area. You want to be in the woods from the beginning of Nov to mid nov for the rut. Thats when I seem to see the most action. I hunt in 59a and 23 just east of where you will be.

Unit 60B Was not Earn A Buck this year, if that does not change next year, you will get a buck tag, and an anterless tag. Bonus anterless tags are unlimited. $2 each.

This unit MAY be EAB next year. If it is, you will need to shoot an anterless deer first. When you register this deer you are given a stamp that gives you the right to harvest a buck.

Wisconsin tags are over the counter.

Hope this helps.

I usually hunt 7 to 9 days during the last 2 weeks of the WI season. IMO it's the best time a bow hunter can be in the woods.

metrojoe, are you talking about the last two weeks before it closes for rifle season or the two weeks basically from Christmas through the end that first week in January?

Good point. I was talking about the last 2 weeks of the bow season before the firearm season opens. Although late season can be good also. I'm just to caught up in the hardwater season by then.

That's what I thought you meant, but I'm gun hunting here then.

I'm struggling with whether I should just concentrate of fishing or if I want to make one more bow trip to WI. I know the fishing will be more productive & I love it, but it's not bowhunting.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?
    • ANYFISH2
      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
