      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 .

Deer - All Season

Recommended Posts

I was just curious as to what the All Season Deer permit entails?

Also, would you have to use say, for the bow season, use a bow? Or can you use a shotgun throughout the season?

Hey Web,

Where in White Water WMA do you hunt? The good thing about the All Season is that one can bang 3 deer from that area, with the bow or a combination of bow, shotgun, and/or muzzle loader.

Yes for the bow season you HAVE to use a bow. You can only use a shotgun during the specified shotgun season. It is just like buying a tag for each season. You can use a bow, shotgun/rifle(in appropriate zone) and muzzleloader during their respective seasons.

You cannot use a shotgun during the archery season - for example right now only archery is open you cannot use a shotgun or muzzleloader right now.

Web,

Must have mistaken you for someone else.

Iowa/Minnesota border... I've hunted near Calodonia (sp.) before. It is nice country down there and the bucks sport huge antlers.

Here's the official response

The all season license, which comes with three tags, one either sex tag and two antler less tags that allow you to take deer in any combination of archery, firearm and muzzle loader seasons. It is valid to use state wide for archery and muzzle loader season, and everywhere except during the 3 season for firearm. Bonus permits can also be purchased if available for the area you are hunting. You can use your shotgun only during the firearm season dates. Once those dates have past, you will need to use a bow, or wait until Muzzle loader season and use a muzzle loader or bow. A bow can be used from Sept 16 thru Dec 31st, but the firearm or muzzle loader can only be used during the open dates.

If u want to hunt the firearms season and the muzzleloader then u need to buy the all season license. This is the only license u can do that with. If u buy a regular firearms license u will not be able to buy a muzzleloader license.

Filmore county... Been there too. I gave it up when a local complained about atv's and got the DNR to close the trail. BTW, the local is still riding his quad on the trail to this day. Go figure...

I have two buddies that takes huge bucks every year. It might be the fact that they sit from way before sun-up to way after sun-down.

Maybe someone can tell me if I understand the all season permit correctly, It comes with three tags, only one can be a buck and you can only fill two of those tags in one particular season. If I shoot two antlerless in the gun season I can't take a buck with the gun but would have to take it with the bow or muzzleloader. I have read the regulations but it doesn't make sense to me. I will be hunting zone 2 in an intensive harvest area. Thanks in advance, Zent

Zent you should be able to shoot 1 buck and 2 does while bow hunting or gun season or muzzleloader and purchase 2 more doe tags.Any buck or doe tags that you don,t use you can use them for muzzleloader or bow.The 1 buck and 2 does can be from any zone that it is allowed.

zent, you are right. You may only use two of your tags in one particular season. but you may buy more antlerless tags if you are in an intensive harvest area.

You could use all three in a particular season. Two does and one buck. You are only allowed to tag two does, in a particular season, with the all season tag.

From the regs....

"To maximize opportunity, hunters should tag antlerless deer

with their antlerless only tags first. For example, if you kill two

antlerless deer in the firearm season, you should just use the

antlerless only tags. That way, you can still take a buck during

the firearm season or a deer of either sex in the muzzleloader or

archery season. Using the tags in this order will maximize the

number of antlerless deer you can take with this license."

Clear as a can be, isn't it..... smirk.gif

JEV is right. You can't kill 3 antlerless deer in any ONE season. You CAN kill three in any one season but one'll have to be a buck. If you want to take 3 antlerless deer, you'll have to do it in more than one season. Don't ask me why the laws says what it says, it just does. Hopefully, it'll be changed for next year.

That would be just with the all season license. If the intensive harvest tags are available in the area you're hunting you could technically shoot 4 anterless in any one season, since you could have two more of those, assuming you haven't used any in a prior season.

Great thread. that 3 deer thing is news to me.

Anyway, since I haven't had my lawyer go over the license rules with me yet this year, can someone explain the "MULTI-ZONE BUCK" tag?

If you buy a regular firearms license and are in an intensive harvest area, could you not tag 4 antlerless deer with extra tags AND tag an antlerless deer with your regular tags? for a total of 5.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."

      An independent laboratory has confirmed zebra mussel larvae in Garfield Lake in Hubbard County. The lab provided photos of two zebra mussel larvae, called veligers, found in a water sample taken from the lake. Property owners on Garfield Lake hired the lab as part of their own monitoring. Invasive species specialists from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources found no zebra mussels in the lake during a six-hour dive survey. Garfield Lake will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species, Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations. Look on the posts, wheels and underwater support bars of docks and lifts, as well as any parts of boats, pontoons and rafts that may have been submerged in water for an extended period. Minnesota law requires that docks and lifts be allowed to dry for at least 21 days before being placed in another body of water, whether aquatic invasive species are present or not. People should contact an area DNR aquatic invasive species specialist if they think they have found zebra mussels or any other invasive species that has not already been confirmed in a lake. More information is available at www.mndnr.gov/AIS. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      City may apply for DNR pilot project treatment The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed zebra mussels in Lake Marion, in the city of Lakeville, in Dakota County. Five adult zebra mussels were found at the public access by a lake consulting business, as part of an early detection monitoring program conducted for the city of Lakeville. The city may apply for a pilot project treatment after a more thorough search of the lake is completed. As boat owners begin taking boats and equipment out of the water for the season, the DNR reminds them to carefully check for aquatic invasive species and contact the DNR with any suspected new infestations.

      Extensive multi-agency search showed no other zebra mussels The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that a single zebra mussel was removed from Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) staff reported one adult zebra mussel on a boat cover recovered from the bottom of the lake. No additional zebra mussels were found during 67 hours of diving, snorkeling and wading searches involving the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, MPRB, two MPRB contractors and the DNR. Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List for zebra mussels, with the provision that it may be removed from the list if future surveys continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake. “We’re grateful that no zebra mussels were found during the extensive dive, snorkel and wading search of Lake Harriet,” said Heidi Wolf, DNR invasive species unit supervisor. “Strong partnerships and interagency cooperation are key, and we thank the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District for their ongoing efforts. “While we regret that Lake Harriet will be added to the Infested Waters List because one zebra mussel was confirmed, we’re hopeful that the lake may be removed from the list if future searches continue to show no zebra mussels in the lake,” Wolf said. DNR invasive species specialist Keegan Lund said Lake Harriet will be carefully monitored the rest of this season and next year, but no treatment is necessary at this time. Lund said individual zebra mussels sometimes die after they are brought into a new lake, before they become established. “There is a common misperception that zebra mussels are everywhere and that their spread is inevitable. The reality is, of Minnesota’s 11,842 lakes, fewer than 250, about 1.8 percent, are listed as infested with zebra mussels. More Minnesotans than ever before are following our state’s invasive species laws,” Lund said. “People spread zebra mussels, and people can prevent their spread.” Whether or not a lake is listed as infested, Minnesota law requires boaters and anglers to: Clean watercraft of aquatic plants and prohibited invasive species. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keeping them out during transport, and Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water.

      I fish the big water of Minnesota side of Lake of the Woods almost exclusively and purchased my boat with what I will call "truck suspension" shock absorbing seats at the helm (first row).   In the waves of LOW, these will bottom out and your back still takes a pounding.   I am planning to replace the helm seats (will need seats, pedestal and base) with one of the above mentioned shock absorbing pedestals next spring.   My boat does have high sides so will need a taller pedestal. Looking for others to comment on their experiences with these.   Thanks.
    • Meterman
      I have typically used the back reeling feature more for letting out line when trolling or jigging.   When fighting a fish, I let the drag take care of business.   I guess it is just a pain to now get used to no back reeling on a new reel . . . may have to switch to another brand?

      Well, fishing wasn't very good. But the weather certainly didn't help. Fished caribou the first day, marked lots of cisco and lakers, but no bites. Planned on bluewater on Monday, but because of the wind, we took the channel to trout instead. Caught several nice bluegills and a 30 inch pike. No lakers, but I did get stuck in weeds in 35 ft of water, never had that happen before. Was going to launch at same access on wabana on Tuesday, and go to bluewater, but wind was even worse. We took a drive and went up to Larson lake. Lost a nice pike, but nothing else. Thought for sure I'd at least catch 1 splake! Survived the storm that night. Stopped at pokegama on way home and fished for a couple hours. Lost a muskie, and had a big pike break my line. My son was really excited to catch his first rock bass. It would be nice to come back someday, but it might be awhile. Caribou could be good in the winter, maybe. Oh well. Final camping trip of the year is in the books!
