      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 .

Best Brush Ever

Recommended Posts

If anyone has ever wondered what the best brush for your dog the FURminator brushes are amazing. Everytime I brush my dog I get a hair ball the size of a small cat. You do have to be careful not to brush too much or too hard or you will take off to much hair. I highly recommend it.

Don't know what I would do without that brush. Have been using one on my Choc lab for 2 years.

For me it was. I couldn't believe how well it worked when I first used it. I actually borrowed it from a friend before I picked one up. My brother got one after he used the one I bought. His yellow lab is a shedder, after working her over for 3 days with it she stops shedding bad for quite awhile. For me My Lab has such a dense thick coat it gets out all the undercoat and he doesnt get hot spots anymore.

Everyone who has used mine ends up buying one for their dog. No other brush compares IMO. The price is a bit outragous but it changes a 5-10 minute brush job into a matter of seconds maybe 2 minutes. It amazes me everytime I use it.

I looked at getting one, then realized it looks exactly like the bottom piece of a hair clippers (the kind to shave your neck or head). SO I went home and unscrewed the bottom part from my clippers and holy cow, I couldnt believe how much hair it pulled out. Obviously doesnt have a nice handle or anything but her coat really looks good right now and I think I saved $50. SO far so good at least

Funny that you say that. Your right they do look just like the blades from a clipper. I want to go take mine apart to see if they work the same now!!

What size of one should a person use say for a setter bread or lab. They range from $25 to $50 at fleet.

My wife bought one at Mills over the weekend for, I thought she said, $28, which to me is spendy for a brush. We have a 65 lb Lab and I was surprised at how much dead hair it removed, especially those little clumps that wouldn't come out with our other brush. Our lab has to be more comfortable now in this heat, without that extra layer of hair. Her coat definately looks better now so I guess it was worth it.

We picked up one a fleet farm a while back for our Britt. Works great. Does by far the best job out of all of the brushes we have tried.

I'm not all that impressed yet. It just feels like I could brush for days and keep getting hair. The shedding does not seem to be greatly reduced yet either. I guess I'll keep trying.

It does get out more hair than any other brush I have ever used though.

Mojo thats how it started for me with my Lab. One has a really thick coat and the other one is alot thinner. The one with the thick coat I could brush for days till my arm got tired or I was sick of all the hair 2" deep in 3 foot radius around me. I kept at it making sure not to do the same spot to often as the fur started to diminish. Now I hook him up twice a week and it goes really fast without the cloud of fur anymore. The shedding is undercontrol for us now also.

My lab is still shedding a little now into July. Not bad but that one of the little joys of being a pet owner. It's a losing battle but as soon as I start winning it going to start getting cold. I can see why some people like labradoodles.

    • I had to look up this thread before making our purchase.  I saw the NuWave. Power Air Fryer and a Farberware.  We went with the Farberware cuz it was the cheapest for experimenting.     Got it on 400 for 25 minutes now to burn off the manufacturing residues.  Looking forward to getting some chicken wings rubbed down and tossed in that baby!
    • As I write this I am on a ND lake with my kdrill and 750 ft in torque hammer drill.  I have 5 amp/hr batteries and going through 28” of ice I am getting 20 or so holes per battery. 
    • I’m just cranky about my asphalt driveway. I’m on a state highway. Recently a couple Snowmobilers put up directional and yield signs on each side of the driveway entrance near the culverts. The traffic has substantially increased this year. I was so happy to have had the asphalt put down because I use a cane now and could keep it free of ice allowing me to get my own mail in the winter.....not this year. I’m afraid to have it plowed and cleaned. Not only do the snowmobiles pull  the snow back onto the driveway making a new mess everyday, but I’m worried about the asphalt being damaged. They don’t mind digging up the grass so what’s to stop them from driving on it bare? To add insult, a groomer came by this week and groomed even the driveway. I read that guys don’t even drive on their own driveways but mines ok. I can look away from the jumping of my driveway as if you crash, it’s on you...you are disturbing my sleep going the excessive speed to jump it though. can someone help me out? I really don’t want an altercation. I feel if I fell on the ice they’d drive around me or just jump over me. Thanks in advance.
    • The big hawks I have been seeing around this winter, I think are redtails that are hunting metro pidgeons.  I have not personally see the snowy owls myself. 
    •   For sure.  The biggest reason I ever went electric was for cutting holes in the house.  Dollar for dollar I don’t know if you can beat gas for cutting shear numbers of holes.   The improvements made in the past couple years with the cordless drill set ups has been amazing though.  If I had to buy electric again I’d give a good hard look in that direction. 
    • Yeah that’s great but the piggy bank wouldn’t appreciate that I like the ion I’ve used before them before there nice but can’t justify spending  $600 on an electric when I could just by a SM lazer pro and drill as many holes I want. I like electric but amount of holes on a charge is tough to come by without spending a $1000. 
    • Sometimes they’re so pretty you don’t wanna clean em.  I appreciate seeing the pics with clean, dry plumage.  They’re too quick in flight for me to get the full view! 
    • You might get 25-30 holes out of one charge on  40 V Ion in these ice conditions but I wouldn’t count on any more than that.  The Ion X might do better.
    • Not knocking any duck shooters, but have you ever noticed how much prettier birds are in flight than when they are piled up in the mud or on the deck of a boat of tossed in the back of a truck? When you get to be an old guy, with eighty seasons behind you, things like that occur to you. Still love to see them coming in fast to the decoys in early light!
    • i switched cuz the drill is so light and easy on my back and no pulling.  25 to 30 holes is no prob on a battery for my nills and the kdrill with the 9 amp probably much better.
