      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 .

Six hunters face charges of taking too many mallards

Associated Press


NEW ROCKFORD, N.D. - Six hunters are accused of shooting too many ducks in Eddy County.

Authorities have charged Benjamin Dietz, 18, and Bradley Dietz, 49, both of Fargo; Brian Miller, 21, of Kilkenny, Minn.; Marc Peterson, 53, and Joe Peterson, 20, both of Montgomery, Minn., and a juvenile with exceeding the limit by shooting 20 mallards too many. They are scheduled to appear in court in Eddy County on Oct. 19.

Bruce Burkett, a game warden for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department, said he watched the hunters shoot the ducks in a harvested grain field southwest of Warwick last weekend. When he checked the hunters, Burkett said, he counted 50 mallards and one pintail.

North Dakota's daily duck limit is six, but hunters can shoot only five mallards and no more than two hens daily. Burkett said that means the six were 20 mallards over the daily limit. The hunters had shot 27 mallard hens and 23 drakes, he said.

Gene Masse, a game warden for the North Dakota Game and Fish Department in New Rockford, assisted Burkett with the case. He said he confiscated the ducks and donated them to the New Rockford Volunteer Fire Department.

Masse said the incident could cost the hunters more than $2,000 in total fines if they plead guilty to the Class B misdemeanor charge of exceeding the limit.

The two wardens allowed the hunters to keep their shotguns pending the court's ruling, Masse said.

I can't believe they let them keep their shotguns. They are pretty soft in ND then. This doens't help the Non-resident issue between MN and ND.

If this would've happened in MN they would've taken the guns, decoys, blinds......etc. $2000 is nothing to scoff at, but cmon. You took the ducks and some money and leave them with the tools that committed the crime.

....and just think how many people just like those clowns don't get caught.

What a shame.
Put the TIP number in your cell phones.
The CO's can't do it alone.

Judging by their ages and last names, I'm guessing a couple fathers with their kids. So much for leading by example. frown.gif

Too bad this stuff happens. There is enough strife between the MN and ND non res hunting without this adding fuel to the fire.

As far as leading by example goes, what a shame. At least the younger ones get a chance to see, first hand, what happens when you throw ethics and the law out the window. If nothing else maybe they learned a lesson they can pass down to their own kids.
