      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 .

scent dripper for scrapes

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to see what everyone uses for the scent dripper over a scrap. I have not seen any yet but I want to be ready when i find one to hang the bag over it. The product that came with the bag has been used up and I can't remember the name.

Thanks

The scent that comes with the wildlife research bag is called "Active Scrape". That is the only scent I have had consistant success with in scrapes. I tried the new stuff Tinks came out with last year I think called Power Scrape because it was alot bigger bottle and cost less than the active scrape but didnt have any luck with it so I will be back to the active scrape again this year.

I used a Code Blue Droptime dripper with pretty good results last fall. I plan on hanging it back up in the same spot this weekend. I think they have a new one out this year that actually heats the scent up to body temperature. Temptation?

Bought the big bottle of active scrape with the dripper this weekend. I have never made a mock scrape so the question to those who have done it, does it work and any words of wisdom. I was thinking of putting it out in two weekends as that will be the time where I will be close to the deer hunting property again.

Checked a primary scrape that I had a dripper over last fall and it was already all torn up, broken branches all over and dirt splayed all over. Can't remember when I've seen that opening weekend.

It's never too early to make a mock scrape. Sometimes it's better to get them established early rather than wait until the 2nd half of October. When scouting, I'll take a ziplock and garden spade and steal the dirt of real scrapes and use it to make mock scrapes. If you're real ambitious, you could even take the licking branch as well.

    • Buddie runs the blue bit gas Nills and Tanaka powerhead and he also told me they no longer make them. He bought another one off a guy just for a backup. Thinking maybe just the gas ones are gone  but possibly both, Interested to hear what Frank says. 
    • ajust in the controls of the radio????
    • Now I’m convinced. I made a shuttle for my Helix but I couldn’t get the settings right until yesterday. Love it with no interference with a Showdown right next to it. Still need to get the ice ducer for it. 
    • Thanks!  I went and spoke with the DMV, I was given a sheet for homemade trailers so I can itemize the parts.  Then I need to add up the values to pay sales tax on.  She said I can write "on-hand" for the parts so no receipt is needed. Just posting for reference.  
    • I believe the one I had was just a model #77 but in .22 cal.  It was a very nice rifle but a little heavy to carry squirrel hunting. It was not cheap either. My guess is I traded it for something else that caught my fancy. You know how that goes.
    • As I remember the round was developed by Col. Townsend Whelan.  It was well thought of at the time and could be loaded up to some serious heavy duty stuff,  big bullets etc.  It was favored in heavy cover since  it was thought of as a brush busting load. I am pretty sure it was available in at least one commercial rifle (Rem?) but it has long ago faded away as newer calibers etc. surpassed it. Am not sure the ammo was available commercially, but it would not take much of your time to  check it out. I'd start with the Col. and go from there.It had its strong supporters. The 35 Remington has a lot more going for it than the 30-30.
    • What kind of speakers and how are the speakers mounted? Sometimes they have to be in somewhat of a "box" to create the bass. 
    • sent him a note earlier
    •   I have a Nils and love it, would recommend it to anyone. Although I've never used the K-Drill, I've seen enough positive reviews to feel confident you really can't go wrong with either one. The only exception is if you're reopening holes a lot (especially if you have a permanent house). The K-Drill seems to be better for that. 
    • You need to go to the dmv and register it as a homemade trailer.
