      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 .

all season dear license question

Recommended Posts

deadminnowcatcher

1) Can someone harvest 2 does and 1 buck with the all season license, all with bow and arrow?

2) can you harvest a doe in a lottery area with bow and arrow during the gun season even if you do not have a doe permit? (Using all season doe tag)

Those are 2 very good ?'s to ask your local Warden

Heres the reason why

I asked those same ?'s and a few more to 2 different

wardens over the past 3 1/2 weeks.I'm still confused

1 said i needed to use atleast 1 doe tag with a firearm and if i got bonus tags i needed to do the same

Other warden said i could use my bow on all the deer not more then a combined total of 5 with 1 being a buck

For the 2nd ? i realy did NOT understand what he was talking about since i dont hunt in lottery areas.Correct me if i'm wrong but it sounded like lottery areas also give out bonus tags during certain seasons.It was my understanding during that season (where you can buy extra doe tags)you can use your bow to harvest does.Thats what i got outa his answers to my ?'s

Both Wardens told me i was not the only 1 confused.1 even took my cell number and had to call me back because he had no idea how to answer my ?.His answer to my ? was not how i had figured it was and i'm glad i had asked because i sure the hell would of got a ticket

Never call the headquaters and ask that person who answers the phone.Found out the hard way several years ago.We even had a name to go with the number we called yet still got a ticket.Just ask for how you can reach your local warden.Call the number and leave a detailed mess and a return number they will call ya back

Yes you can take 2 does and a buck with a bow. If you use two different methods - muzzle and bow you can take all three does. You can only take two does max with one method, the third deer with that method has to be a buck.

You can take a doe in a lottery area using a bow.

You cannot take a doe in a lottery area during slug/rifle without being drawn for a doe tag if you are going to use firearms to hunt.

xedge has it listed just the way I understand it as well. When you read it in the DNR printing it is pretty clearly stated and even explains how to maximize your tags. Archery is a continuous season so there is no problem harvesting a doe by bow while the archery season runs in conjunction with the firearm season. As stated in a lottery area, you are not allowed to harvest a doe by firearm unless you have applied for and been selected as an antlerless recipient.

      I would avoid them if I were you.  All season.  There's often at least some current flowing through there and with these warmer winters, its just a bad idea.

      If your getting some pretty close shooting (and gauging by your photos you are in those setups), you might want to use an IC (improved cylinder) choke instead.  Spread that pattern out a little more and switch to some smaller shot size with more velocity, especially if you're mostly just shooting as small ducks like woodies. I almost exclusively use an IC until the calendar turns November, for ducks, pheasants, and grouse.  Later on when you get more shooting at bigger, smarter birds that are on the edge of range you could go back to a modified.

      Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge

      Thank you for the responses everyone. You are correct Del I do not have the Fiber option.  We do use the Hot spot from AT&T at times but to be honest the Data does not last all that long, Even though we are right by Moccasin point & the tower is at the end of Frazer our signal is not the best at times.  We could also do DSL but according to one neighbor we may be faster sending up carrier pigeons & waiting for a response.

      It's been a 1/32 oz. unpainted jig head & a small split shot along with a crappie minnow for me most of the time. Still barely see the rod tip load or wiggle a little on the bite. Even tougher with the wind lately & 20' or more down.

      Any channel on any lake is dangerous.

      We are done as of Saturday as well. Was fishing in 35 feet in Smarts Friday and had a monster, monster fish on. Thought I was snagged for a few minutes, but then felt the wiggling. Fought if for probably five - ten minutes (drag flying out) and then up came an eight inch walleye. Never saw the monster, but guessing it was massive fish, perhaps a muskie? Anyone else ever have this happen?

      Hey I am planning on ice fishing on Lake Minnetonka this winter with a friend and I am using a snowmobile to get to the lake from the trails. I would enter onto the lake in Orono off the Luce line trail and end up in Stubbs bay. I was reading on other forums saying avoid the channels but it seems to be the only way to get around the lake to other bays especially since I am on a snowmobile. I was wondering if they eventually are safe enough to hold up a snowmobile in mid-late January, and if going through them faster helps possibly? I would like to fish around the Smith's bay area and the only way I can do that is going through channels. I know Lake Minnetonka can be sketchy with ice thickness and I don't want to end up through the ice, thoughts? Thanks.   Jim

      The DSL service is great since they ran the fiber down 24 a few years ago.   I was presuming that the poster didn't have that option if they were considering satellite.     AccessMN is another possibility if they are still around.
