      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 .

Clarify All Season license ?

Recommended Posts

ozzie

I know this may have been asked but with the all season license can I shoot a buck (rifle/shotgun season) most anywhere (except 3B) in the state? I understand the doe part but I read the DNR regs and am confused as to the buck portion for this season.

Yes, anywhere & any time the season is open in that area, with any weapon legal for that season.

But you may still only take 1 buck total for the year and not 1 buck for each season. The other two tags you receive with the all season license are for antlerless deer only.

just one more question reguarding all season license. If I used both anterless tags and my eithr sex tag on a buck last weekend in a managed area can I use a bonus permit in that same area to take a another doe. thanks for the info in advance.

Elwood I'm not 100% sure of my answer here so maybe best check for another answer or read the regs youself but I believe in a managed area if you taken 3 deer by firearm or combination of weapons(2 antlerless and 1 buck) you are done hunting that area. There is no mention in the regs about an all season license holder having the ability to by bonus tags for additional deer in managed areas. It says you may take 3 deer. Whereas for hunters in intensive areas the regs say an all season license holder can purchase bonus tags for additional deer up to a maximum of 5. So it seems to me 3 is the limit from a managed area.

MANAGED DEER AREAS

The number and type of deer you can kill in managed deer areas varies by license type. Below is a summary of the licenses and what type of deer may be harvested:

• All-season deer - may take up to three deer in managed deer areas during the firearm season but only two can be antlerless. Hunters can tag an antlerless deer with their either-sex tag but are advised to use their antlerless-only tags first. All-season hunters do not need to purchase bonus permits for use in managed areas because the license

now includes a third tag.

INTENSIVE DEER AREAS

Intensive deer areas have a bag limit of 5 deer total. Below is a summary of the licenses and what type of deer may be harvested:

All-season deer - may take up to three deer with that license during the firearm season but only two can be antlerless. Hunters can tag an antlerless deer with their either-sex tag but are advised to use their antlerless-only tags first. All-season hunters can purchase bonus permits and the bag limit in intensive areas is five deer.

So it seems to me if you want to keep hunting you would have to buy a bonus tag and hunt in an intensive deer area as you limit of 3 in a managed area has been reached.

    • Rick G
      Sorry for no more live updates. Got too busy fishing...lol Pretty decent morning bite, slow afternoon, followed up by a very good evening bite. Plenty of noce fish caught if you worked for them.

      fun day for sure.   good to see those that popped up. get that eye pic up rick! Thx Moose for starting us out in a good area and for lining it up.

      Looks like you had a better bite than I did. I really didn’t expect all my gear to be that bad hand pulling out.  Big time failure on my part to not bring my wheeler.  I have too much of a spearing Jones to have left it all back at the truck. I brought a few gills, a seed, a crappie and a 25 inch walleye home.  Biggest gill went 8.  I went through a half dozen heavy pike suckers on the tip up but never dropped the spear.  Only saw one 20 incher that never really got in the hole.  The walleye inhaled the sucker and got the hooks in the throat. Glad you guys got some nice ones!
