      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 .

I actually called the DNR with this same question about 2 years ago. The answer was yes.

From the book...

BAG LIMITS FOR DEER

• Hunters may tag deer on both their firearms (including muzzleloader) and archery deer licenses. This provision applies statewide, however, hunters may only tag ONE buck per calendar year.

that depends if you used a bonus tag or not to tag the doe. I believe you may only use one buck tag a year, and if you used the buck tag for a doe then you have used your buck tag for the year.

That is my understanding of the rule. That is why i just purchased the all season so i didnt have to worry about that anymore.

Hope that helps

Yes, you can....A buck or another doe. I use to hunt with the same license you have, just make sure you don't tag more than 1 buck in any season(firearm, archery, muzzleloader).

No matter what season you go, you get issued one buck permit, It used to be that the permits transferred from season to season you got one buck permit and if you used it on a doe during archery season, your buck permit was used up, you could only tag a doe during firearms season. Basically, what it did was make you buy a management tag during archery, even if you only wanted to shoot a doe and save your buck tag for firearms. Now, you can tag a doe with your general license during archery, and still tag a buck with your general license during firearm. It doesn't carry over season to season, however, you can still only register one buck a year. Man that sounds confusing frown.gif

Might be best to give the scenarios.

#1 buy a general archery tag, shoot a doe, tag it with the general archery tag, you can't shoot a buck during archery but can still tag a buck with your general firearm permit during the season. (Under the old rules, if you did this, your one antlered tag was used up regardless and you couldn't shoot a buck anymore that year regardless of season)

#2. Buy a general archery tag, shoot a buck, you can ONLY tag it with your general archery tag, now your general firearms tag is only good for a doe during firearm season if it is offered.

I believe that this is correct.

Thanks for the replies guys. I did buy a bonus tag for gun, but due to not seeing any deer in that zone I'll be hunting elsewhere this weekend and wanted to make sure I could still tag a doe and be able to tag a buck with my bow. I have an awesome late season spot grin.gif

You can use your regular archery and regular firearms both in the same year, however you can only shoot 1 buck. The regular license is NOT a buck or a doe license. You can use it to tag either a buck or a doe with the key is you can only tag 1 buck no matter what. Alot of people buy the management tags for does to save their regular license for a buck. If you just bowhunted and tagged a buck with your regular license you would be limited to bowhunting does with management tags after that. So in a nutshell you can use your main archery and your main firearms tags on any sex deer as long as you only tag 1 buck total for the season.

The bonus tag isn't season specific. It's a generic permit that you can use so long as you have a valid license and you're in the right area. In other words, there is no such thing as an archery bonus permit or a firearm bonus permit. It's just a bonus permit. The intent was to move away from season-specific permits and give hunters flexibility. So, if you're bowhunting (or muzz hunting) in a managed or intensive area, you can use that bonus permit on an antlerless deer. Of course, you need to be hunting with the appropriate weapon. You can't be out there during the archery season with a muzzleloader and say "but I have this bonus permit".

Wow, I never new that, so I looked real quick. Yep, same tag, I guess I have two bonus permits for 3b, Yeah. But I do have another question, when I brought this up at work, another hunter asked a good question.

If your party hunting, and you have used up your tags, what do you have to show that you are legal? 1/2 the tag stays with the deer, the other half to the registrar in return for a possession tag that is supposed to stay with the meat. What are you left with to show that you are legal?

When you register your deer, you receive a possession tag and that is what stays with your deer. You then still have the top portion of your tag to carry with you in the field.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.
    • FishinCT
      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Terry, Sorry to hear that you have to retire after all of these years! I suppose It will be my turn to join you and Tommy before to many years also. See you on the water!! Cliff

      Congratulations on job well done sir. Your deserve time for yerself with Sandra an the whole younger crew. You have always been nice to me an a big help when I first seriously did the Muskie fish guide deal back summer 1996. We have had some fun times laughing online an in each other's boat over the years. Even boated a fish or three an coined a few major phrases still used in today's ever so silly online Muskie fish market.  Good stuff that I think only you n I could muster up and never take any of it seriously. Truely makes me smile clear to my middle all the junk we talked about an did. You are a good man Terry and welcome in my boat any time. Anytime. Ya done good and will not soon be forgotten. Thanks for being my friend on or off the water. The name fits as you really have been "The Ace"on our sweet Vermilion.   Still no fish round my docks but Bonnie, Polar Bear Boy an myself always have enjoyed your company. Yer the best in many ways my friend.  Thanks. Keep on Rocken!   Tommy.       PS.    I will continue to keep the Zombie Horde in check.    ; )
