      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 .

Change a permit zone

I did get a permit - I am wondering if it is possible to change zones?

This a question on the DNR office can answer. I would say that it is very unlikely that you could change zones on a permit drawing.

You may be able to purchase a surplus tag though as long as you don't buy the lottery tag.

you will not be able to change zones one they have drawn, I ran into that a lot with doe permits when I worked in a sporting goods store, DNR says it isn't there job to know where you are hunting, that it is in a nut shell.

I hope this isn't true. It wouldn't surprise me though. We need some reform in our states great idea of the "lottery system."

You are not eligible for a surplus or archry tag if you were successful in the lottery drawing.

Thanks for the clarity. I was not sure, but if the person was going to call I figured that might be a possibility.

Only reason I knew Andy was that someone else asked last season and I checked it out for them. They had been drawn but a change in plans ruled out the week they were drawn for and they hoped to do the archery hunt instead.

I did contact the DNR via email. They said I could purchase a surplus permit as long as i did not purchase the lottery permit.

Nothing against you portageman, but I assume you will retain your preferance points for next years "lottery"?

Yes - They said that if you purchase the surplus permit you do not earn a preference point.

Just to clarify - I have never turkey hunted before and did not have a hunting spot lined up when I had to apply back in Dec. I took my best guess, and applied for late season in order to increase my chances of getting drawn. There are many permits left for the season and zone for which I was drawn and I would be purchasing a surplus permit if I decide to change zones - it doesnt really seem like I am screwing anyone out of a permit. I had no preference points to begin with, if I purchase a surplus I will have none. Am I breaking some rules of etiquette?
