      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 .

Kong or Nylabone, only two sum what safe chew toys as far as I'm concerned. I also go to the butcher and buy large raw shank bones (beef) that they get to chew on once a week for a half hour or so, and then put them back in the freezer, they don't splinter like the cooked one's do and they keep there teeth nice and clean.

My new pup likes the elk antler chew toys from Chuck N Dons. Chews on it all the time and it looks like we bought it yesterday. They like to try and get the marrow out.

Where do ya get those elk antlwer chew toys? All she gets is sheds to play with, so this might work great. She has some sheds with skull caps an seems to really like those. Thanks boar

I give my lab small whitetail antler sheds to chew on. Those things are tough and she loves them.

She doesn't hunt sheds however...

There is no substitute for exercise. The more your dog gets the better it will behave. I have a boxer and she can not get enough.

Just an FYI. I had a dog break it's molar chewing on a cow hoof. It split the face off and the tooth needed surgery. It had to be split in 4ths, a flap done and so on. It was a 6000$ bill. Afterward they gave me a flier about chews and teeth. I was surprised, as I had no idea hard things were that bad. But raw hide chews only, and no more then ones they can chew up in 5-10 minutes or so. If it goes longer take them away. There are the ones with tooth cleaning paste right in them, I think they are CT chews. But any way, they acclimated the wear on older dogs teeth to all these chews as well. Those nyla things cow hoofs or bone items that are hard are the worst thing to give a dog for there teeth. Take it from a dental vet, not me. If you have doubt's or ?'s call you dental specialist at the vet.But extended chewing on these marketed items that are so numerous, will wear your dogs teeth down faster.

what did dogs do before dentists?

bahh sometimes this site just makes you scared to do anything. there is tons of talk out there of raw hide being bad for our dogs too. My pup needs something to do or else i go crazy i rotate between 3 things

1. sock with a empty water bottel in it (sometimes i put food in the bottom of the sock)

2. kongs with a frozen peice of bread with peantbutter spread on it

3. smoked beef hip knuckles (her favorite) the ones i buy come from lakewinds and are full or tendons and meat and stuff that is chewable off the bone when it gets down to bone i take it away and replace it with a new one. the stuff from the "pet marts" is junk compared to these bones.

    • some people are bad apples that give the sport a bad name, I as a snowmobiler have respect for driveways. FYI driveway approaches are on the public right of way, you may not block them, or place anything that can injure someone. trail groomers actually do you a favor by knocking down the bank, to keep it level. unless your groomer was not well trained, they will not groom over your driveway.
    • If code allows post frame for residential construction then by design you don't need a block foundation. 
    • Perfect that awnsers my question. Why spend $250 when I could spend $150 on a new lazer bit and cuts faster, it’s more durable but still about same weight and a chipper but. Really a no brainer. What are you seeing for drilling time with that 8 inch lazer?
    • From my experience one of my only complaints with the Kdrill is how slow it drills. It more than gets the job done but my laser 8” is faster.
    • So I’ve always fished 8 inch holes but really why? Most Anything can fit through a 6 inch hole anyway. I was thinking maybe for next season of getting a 6 or 8 inch I drill and putting it on my 1.5hp solo. Right now it’s about 24lb which is light but with the k drill it would be lighter yet. My question is would I be getting any more speed out of a k drill vs regular SM chipper bit? And then I can invest in a nice Milwaukee fuel and there we go.
    • Hi there, new here. Found this place because of this older topic.  We are planning a pole barn home on a slab. This is the 1st one in our township and the inspector seems unsure about the requirements for the slab "foundation" and insulation. When we started last year the old inspector said if the poles are through the frost level (42") you can just lay down a flat 4" slab. The new inspector seems to think it needs a foundation. Not finding much info online for this specific build. Plan as of right now. 4" radon pea gravel and barrier, 4" rock, 2" foam, heat tubes, steel mesh with 4" concrete over that. Someone here know the county (Isanti) spec for something like this? Township overrules county.  Thanks.   https://talk.newagtalk.com/forums/thread-view.asp?tid=376864&DisplayType=nested
    • BB gun?  Hows that for a 1st post?   
    • Ahh. Thanks for your story PRO-V. That’s what I’m trying to avoid. Plus it’s about 400 feet of hose to get to the banks...
    • A couple years ago I just got done plowing my driveway with the wheeler. Along comes an adult snowmobiler with his kid following behind. Guy crosses driveway and stops on top of opposite bank. Then he guns his machine sending all the snow back in the driveway. This is not a trail, just random ditch riders. Well I was outside and saw him do it. I jumped in my truck and cut him off at a road crossing 2 blocks away. I jumped out and royally chewed his azz and told him what a bad example he was setting for the kid. I think he got the message. For awhile after that I sprayed water on the banks to freeze them. No respect, they wouldn't want you doing that to their driveway.
