      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 .

Attempt to ban dove hunting

Minnesota Mourning Dove Hunt Under Attack

Sportsmen’s immediate action needed to protect dove hunt

Legislation that will ban the hunting of mourning doves in Minnesota is being heard today by committees in the Minnesota House of Representatives and the Minnesota Senate. Sportsmen’s grassroots action against House File 2501 and Senate File 2329 is imperative if this threat is to be stopped.

If passed, these measures would ban hunting for the nation’s #1 game bird, the mourning dove. In fact, more people hunt mourning doves across the U.S. than ducks and geese combined. Anti-hunting groups have wanted to take the season away since sportsmen successfully fought to get it established in 2004. Mourning dove hunting is a time honored tradition in 40 states, including Minnesota, and there is simply no justification for ending the hunt.

“Minnesota sportsmen must take immediate action to stop this impending threat,” said Rob Sexton, vice president of government affairs for the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA). “Anti-hunters see these bills as a foothold in Minnesota to attack hunting again.”

The USSA worked with Minnesota sportsmen’s groups to pass mourning dove hunting legislation in 2004.

Take Action! Minnesota sportsmen must contact their legislators today to urge them to oppose banning mourning dove hunting in Minnesota.

To find your State Representative call the information desk at 651-296-2146 and ask them to transfer you to your representative. Ask your representative to oppose House File 2501.

To find your State Senator call the information desk at 651-296-0504 and ask them to transfer you to your senator. Ask your senator to opposed Senate File 2329.

Legislator contact information can also be found by using the Legislative Action Center at www ussportsmen org.

Just to add, it took 5 minutes for me to call BOTH my elected officials and oppose the bills.

The folks on the other line were friendly about it, except my (D) Senate rep's assistant didn't ask for my residential info like my ® rep's assistant did.

Don't know if that had anything to do with him finding out my stance first or not ;).

I'll add a bit also! a few years ago Michigan had the same groups pushing for a ban,I believe Dove hunting in Mich. is no more.These people will NOT stop at doves.DONT LET THEM GET A FOOT IN THE MN. DOOR

Hunter Assn.s in Mich were emailing for help they stated they were afraid hunters were too relaxed about their hunting and did'nt think it could happen,so they wanted anyone to contact MICH. leg.s to help! Because hunters thought it could'nt happen in Michigan To them! BUT IT DID!!

You can also go to this web site, enter in your address, city, state and zip code and it will tell you who your state senator and representative are and what their email addresses and are. My senator actually replied back to me the same day.

I e-mailed my clowns and asked them to not go with it. As I watched it, it looked like it had next to no chance of passing as it seemed that almost all were in favor of the hunting season for doves and the evidence about the dove population was good.

But, with this group, one never knows just what they might pass.
