      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 .

Road kill

Recommended Posts

Ron Burgundy

What are the rules for road kills. On my way to work this morining I saw a large buck laying in the ditch. Big 8. Tines 10 inches or more. 18 inch spread. These are estimates as I was going about 70. I just started thinking about what You can legally do with the deer. Maybe go back home, get the truck and call the hwy patrol and the DNR. That would be a nice rack to have. I wouldn't mount it and tell people that I shot it or anything like that. From what I could see, it was very nice deer. If I had shot it I'd probably put it on my wall. Now I'm really disappointed to be typing this and not parking that deer in my garage and getting to work late!

i dont know the legalities on taking just the antlers, but laswt year i had one that was hit right in front of my driveway, called the DNR and they issued me a permit that i just had to come pick up the next day. Really funny and cool conversation piece that i left on the fridge. It says Deer Roadkill Possession Permit right across the top.

You can get a possesion tag for them I think it is a $1.00 and they will meet you and issue you the possession/transportation tag

Where I live the CO or deputy will issue a possession permit and it's a freebie.

If that big boy is there when I go home tonight he's coming home with me. Who knows. Maybe he was shot this morning and not tagged yet. Too close to city limits to be an archery deer, and on that side of the road.

i have never hit one but I call the sheriff if I see a fresh one and have probably claimed 15 or so in my life.

sometimes there is lots of good meat and sometimes it is a waste of time.

I got burnt once and must have claimed a deer WAY older than the freshly dented car with it's flashers going would have suggested. They do turn green at some point....

You can call the sheriff or police department and get your name on a list to come get them as well. you can bank on a call on saturday night at 1:30 am.....

Make sure to call the local authorities, the animal and ALL its parts are state property, antlers included. Usually the co will let you have them but I have seen differently with moose for a few understandable reasons. It is the CO's discretion.

The deer was gone when I got there after work of course. On my way to the Dover exit to go back home I found another deer in between the four lanes of I-90 with the rack cut off. This morning just past that deer I saw a big basket six on the edge of a cornfield looking for a date.

if you stop and pick up a dead deer with out calling the local police or sherriff it is considered poaching dont do it without calling stopped last year to pick up a hit deer and take it to a place that has caged lions where the police take them and sherriff pulled up and told us we were poaching because we didnt make the proper calls he let us go because we were at the lion place but man close call so a word of advice dont do it

      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
