      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 .

That is the way I read it also. You can fill both tags.

I would call the dnr headquarters and ask just to be sure. I would hate to see someone picked up for poaching

Reading the reg's it clearly states one bear in lottery zone and one in the non quota zone.

Look on the DNR website and there is an update in big red letters that was dated back in June, I believe, and it states only one bear per hunter per year. A buddy and I had a discussion on this while at bear camp and someone at the DNR messed up big time!! So instead of printing out all new regualtions they just made the change in the seperate bear regualtions and on the website.

Whitewolf is correct.

The link below is to the online version of the bear regs. About half way down on page 95 you'll see the correction that stats one bear per hunter state wide.

Page 2 of the bear reg's state it is only one bear in non-quota are. The bag limit used to be 2 bears in that area. Look at the bag limit description on page 4 of the bear reg's.

Minnesota Hunting Regulations confusing? Really? Hard to believe. crazy

I read everything referenced above and I still can't tell for certain what the answer is, and I fear that a call to the DNR headquarters might not reveal the true answer either. This really shouldn't be THIS complicated.

I saw what you are talking about on page 4 of the bear regs before I went back to the main Hunting Regs book. The main Hunting Regs book included incorrect information when it was first released. The incorrect info has since been crossed out and corrected to read one bear per hunter state wide.

Page 4 of the Bear regs is poorly worded but I think it is trying to say you are allowed one bear regardless of hunting quota or non-quota.

I just emailed the DNR for clarification.

On the main regulation page at the DNR website here: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/regulations/hunting/index.html

It says:

Updates as of 7/26/2013

Bear season - one bear per hunter statewide, p. 95

with a link to the full hunting regs here: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulat...emode=bookmarks

The bear regs on the DNR website ( http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/recreation/hunting/bear/bear_regs.pdf ) in my opinion state that we are allowed one quota bear AND one no-quota bear.

Just heard back from the DNR. Here is their response:

Quote:
The bag limit is one with a quota (lottery) license and one with a no quota area license. It used to be one in a lottery and 2 in a no-quota area. It’s on page 4 of the bear regulations: http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/recreation/hunting/bear/bear_regs.pdf Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We’ll have it fixed soon.

I filled my quota tag opening night. I emailed the dnr roughly 5 days ago asking them if i can now buy a no quota tag and they said I can harvest one in the quota zone and one in the no quota zone.

I will be putting out a bait in the no quota zone tomorrow.

So even the update in the regular hunting regs is also incorrect? Crazy crazy

Sounds like it was corrected incorrectly, go figure.

Well, at least they owned up to it. Gotta give em' a little credit for that. I still think these folks are doing the best they can, given what they have to work with. Gotta be frustrating for them as well.

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?

      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.

      Really no different than using your boat.  $14,000 fish house and $14.33/year is going to kill you?? What gets me is at the lake we are at in the summer, mostly out of state people in the campground and all of their boats, never leave that lake and they are all licensed out of state and not in MN.  That is a chunk of money the state does not see.
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Great news to hear! Hopefully it will make enough tonight and hope it isn't going to get as warm as they say. Fingers crossed!

      Was hoping to come up with a 1/2 ton and a 16ft wheel house Dec. 1st.  Any thoughts if the ice will be think enough to go out of Hillmens?

      Took a drive around Lake Osakis earlier. It appears the cold and calm winds we had last night made a lot of ice. From what I could tell it appeared the lake was locked up except there was a small open area in Manthey's Bay that had a couple trumpeter swans swimming around and another small area in front of Holiday Resort that had some ducks swimming around. The rest was all ice, thin ice. Don't know if it will hold up over the next 5 days. High of 38 tomorrow, 46 and showers on Friday with high winds, 36 Saturday, 44 Sunday and 44 Monday. The lows over night aren't going to dip very low. If it was a few inches thick I wouldn't be to concerned, but as thin as it is, could be bad.

      Not by itself it won't but they raised the price on licenses for everything. Once you add it all up I'll bet you never got that big of a raise at your job. I paid for an ATV license since they first came out and we didn't get squat for it for over 20 years. What a joke, not to mention debacles like Mille Lacs Lake management. AAARRGGHHH!!  I gotta quit now before I pop a vein.
    • JerkinLips
      Thanks for the updates.  Think I will play it safe and wait until Thursday, November 30 to go out from McKinley Park.
    • Finnish Flash
      7" of good clear ice in the couple holes I drilled in Pike Bay this morning.

      not sure why its not showing I'm posting? Anyway walking out on the south shore gets you in deeper water quicker. Yes they do bite on red lake during the dark. I hardly ever go on the lake early ice unless Buddy Hillmen needs my help. Once I drive on the lake with blue thunder I will be on her just about everyday un  tell mid march if mother nature cooperates.
