      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 .

Seems to me somebody...maybe Jnelson put a link on here last year to a list of private land owners that allow public turkey hunting. I looked on the MN DNR page and couldn't find it this year any ideas.

Thanks

Scott

The way I understand it after rereading the rules, The landowners get up to %20 of permits per area. You must still ask permission. The landowners can say no(unsafe or lack of birds). It seems one property can be used for several landowner tags. It might be different in other areas but in mine it is joke. It might be better to do some door knocking and get permission elsewhere.

Yeah, the way it reads (landowners may limit number of hunters) sounds like it could be easily taken advantage of. I guess I can't blame a guy for not wanting others educating the birds on his land. Not sure if that's how it works, but that's what I get out of it. I do, however, like the idea of turning private lands somewhat public in exchange for a couple tags.

In my opinion,this landowner thing is a joke.All the land owner has to say is that someone else is hunting on his land and say no to you,even if he has no one hunting.Also, I know land owners who get landowner tags,yet they have no turkeys on their land and go hunt somewhere else.The landowner thing is just a way they can get tags every year!

You bet, the landowner permit issue comes up every year, and I guess it depends on which side of the fence you're on, or how you're looking at it. And paintbrush, by no means am I picking on you!!!

Let me first say that I could, but don't, apply for the landowner permits based on our experience, and the experience of others that apply as such. This is for a number of reasons, primarily:

-Past hunter quarrels

-"Blanket" permission - folks think that your land is now "public" and show up to hunt morels, squirrels, deer, coon, etc., etc., etc.

-Trespassing onto neighbor's land from yours - then playing dumb

-Blocking field rd. access during planting season!

-People not asking permission, and just showing up, assuming the land is once again, public

-Rutting up fields to drive closer to where they want to hunt

The hope is that these nightmares are exceptions to the rules, rather than the rule, but our experience has shown that it happens at least once per season, often more. It takes only a bad apple or two to spoil the bunch for everyone. How many times would you allow someone into your yard to whip doughnuts or get you into trouble with the neihbors?

What people fail to understand that as a landowner, letting someone hunt on your land opens you up to multiple infringements upon your privacy, resources, and ultimately livelihood for many of those folks that make a living from their land (farmers). I'm not anti-permission or against letting anyone hunt either! I'm simply stating the flip-side to publishing your name on a list for the general public to go after.

I offer this as another side of the coin, should folks mistakenly think that the landowner turkey, deer, or other game permitting system is a one-sided gig solely benefitting landowners who by en-large never let people hunt anyway. It just isn't the case, as I hunt farms every year that are on this list, and know others that do as well.

If you're late in the game, and others have beaten you to the punch (remember, folks that live around there and hunt too, they often ask much earlier), don't play the blame game in the name of laziness.

I think the system is flawed too, the other direction smile.gif. You can get a tag yearly by doing your homework and putting in research, and the benefit of getting a tag via the landowner permit system is, for me, not even close to worth the headache and hassle.

I’m in total agreement with you paintbrush. The landowner license as it is stated, is a big joke. The idea is right, but in which the way it works needs major revision. I personally know of several people who have applied under landowner permits. Only to find the land they have applied under is a plowed field in the middle of hundreds of other plowed fields. Yes, the person does own a great wood lot (with lots of turkeys on it) about 15 miles away, but when asked to hunt it. The owner replied “you can hunt the land that is registered in the book, but not the wood lot, I don’t let anyone hunt in there.” As far as the land the person has registered there is no way there are turkeys in the area or on his land. But he is legally able to register this land under current regulations and apply as a landowner permit. Now, this is where I feel there needs change.

On another note, I think the state of Minnesota should look into the way Kansas does there spring landowner leasing. I honestly do not know a lot about it, but the way its wording in the Kansas turkey hand book, it allows a hunter to access private land, leased by the state. It is very similar to the Walk-in Area program of South Dakota. Just some food for thought!

These landowners have everyright to get a permit for killing a turkey. They own the land that feeds and shelters them, they pay the taxes on it and have to watch as the birds go right down the rows and pluck out the freshly planted seeds in the spring.

That should be the reason that they get preference and are able to purchase land owner tags. Not simply to allow someone else to hunt on it. If they do, good for them, if not, find somewhere else. Just my ops. BTW, I am not a land owner, but I know people that are and all are almost always full of Turkey hunters all season long.

If you get a landowner tag you should have to only harvest an animal on the land you got the tag on. Not down the street or accross the county.

Also, they should have to report how many hunters they allowed on their property during the season.

An open tag for a little work.

If you get a landowner tag, you should have to take the bird on your land. Not necessarily the land that you designate as open to hunting. I'm sure that their are a few landowners out there that abuse this, but for the most part, I have run across very few that due. The number of hunters that a landowner allows on their land is their business. If we start to regulate that landowners serve a quota of hunters, they will quit buying them and then you won't have any idea of what lands may or may not be able to be hunted.

If a guy gets a landowner permit every year, and doesn't let anyone else hunt on it thats his priority. I believe that as long as he is paying taxes and buying his license, and taging it legally (in season), he is entitled to the game on his property. I guess what I'm saying is that if they pay the taxes on the shelter, or they put in the crops, they should get a perk for it. Right or wrong, thats just how I feel. More than once I've seen full rows of oats taken out by turkeys.

The purpose of the landowner tags are to open up more lands for turkey hunters. Now, I have no problem with them be able to regulate people. I do have a problem with those who apply with their 40 acres of agricultural land in which there is absolutely no way turkeys are going to be on their property. Thus giving any land owner better odds at being drawing for a tag just because they own a plowed field.

      Hey everybody, I have my last two guide trips on the 22nd and 23rd of August. A bad back and old age have taken their toll and I will retire from a job I have loved to do for the last 27 years.  I still enjoy it but unfortunately my body just can't take the pounding anymore. I'll still be out there fishing but no longer on a daily basis. I will miss all the regular clients I have had over the years and all the new people I have met that I can call my friends. Thanks to all of you that have shared the boat with me over the years, I hope you all had a good time.

      Bought a couple of baitcaster reels..my first....Lew's BB1 speed spool and Daiwa Tatula CT R. After about two weeks of daily practice casting in the river behind our house....lots of backlashes(birds nests)...I gotta say, I've come to love casting with these reels....much more accurate than my spinning reels. Any other baitcasting fans out there?  If so, what do you use?

      On the lighter side, I am 'SpoonBillSlayer' on that other site. For whatever reason years ago when I joined these sites I used two different userids. Both odd duck names that fit an odd duck! I just wanted to get the new updates out on this mess, it just seems like the only people being notified of it are those in  lake assoc's.  We'll see what happens.

      I've massaged the trigger finger this summer by shooting the sporting clays league at Rice Creek.  Good way to make sure I got out! Started a little rough as to be expected but got back the groove toward the end.  Finished the summer at a charity shoot with 39/40.  That felt good.

      Through a federal grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ has awarded more than $450,000 in local grants to protect and enhance inland coastal resources. The annual grant program is managed by the Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, which is a voluntary federal-state partnership distributing federal dollars to projects along the inland coast of Lake Superior. This year, grant funding is being awarded to nine projects in the coastal area: Researchers at the University of Minnesota will monitor and analyze measures designed to reduce erosion of bluffs adjacent to North Shore streams. Results will inform guidance on design criteria for future projects. $35,900. The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission will conduct an economic impact assessment of paved trails within the coastal area; determine the number of users of four popular trails (Duluth Lakewalk, Willard Munger State Trail, Gitchi-Gami State Trail, and St. Louis River Trail), and simultaneously conduct large-scale survey of trail-user habits and impacts on coastal economy. $11,500. Laurentian Resource Conservation and Development is planning to host a two-day conference for academia and coastal managers to bridge a gap between research results and practices of watershed assessment, protection and stream restoration. $23,000. Researchers at the University of Minnesota will increase scientific understanding of success rates of coastal forest seeds. Results will inform coastal managers for improved adaptive management and help determination whether coastal trees should be protected and treated as a unique seed collection zone. $98,875. Duluth Children’s Museum in collaboration with Positive Energy Outdoors will create a year round, innovative outdoor science, technology, engineering, and math active learning experience for children, particularly those in low-income households with limited access. $33,100. University of Minnesota Duluth – Natural Resources Research Institute and several partners will develop protocols for assessing the biomass of periphyton (algae attached to rocks) in Duluth area trout streams for use by professional aquatic and citizen scientists. $77,440. City of Duluth will improve public safety and access to the St. Louis River estuary through upgraded wayfinding signage and amenities on the Western Waterfront Trail.  $89,080. Lake County will develop engineering designs and construct trailhead for Lake County Mountain Bike Trail System, a planned 100-plus mile mountain bike trail system. connecting both beginner and advanced cyclists to nature and physical activity in the coastal area. $70,000. City of Carlton will replace an outdoor restroom facility at the Willard Munger trailhead in city of Carlton. The updated structure will meet current sewer requirements and meet compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act. $11,225. For 18 years, the DNR and NOAA have worked together to better Minnesota’s inland coast. Together, the agencies have granted $12.6 million in pass-through funding to more than 550 local projects and provided thousands of hours of technical assistance. Projects are selected for funding through an annual competitive grants process. For more information about Minnesota’s Lake Superior Coastal Program, visit www.mndnr.gov/mlscp.

      Second the guide.  Fishing a lake in the north is totally different from fishing Mississippi or lake Zumbro or other lakes in the southern half of the state.  Otherwise you should look at the best place to launch your boat to be close to good fishing.  Rainy is a very big lake.. Ask in http://fishingminnesota.com/forums/forum/98-rainy-lake-fishing-reports-hunting-events/ the rainy lake forum.

      Unless they find a way to stop all the kinds of waterfowl from swimming, diving, eating and pooping from lake to lake. It's never going away.
