      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 lock clothing??

Recommended Posts

ive got the jumpsuit kind. just couldnt justify spending another 50ish just to have seperate pants and top. plus, theoretically it should be more scent containing since theres one less place for it to escape. I like it. Dont know how many more deer ive seen because of it, but it does help you keep on the ball about scent control and prevention.

Last year on opening day of bow season I had 4 bucks walk into the wind from 400 yards away. They walked right under my stand at 5 yards. Two 2.5 year old 9 pointers and a fork and a five. They walked right under my stand and never winded me. I take many precautions to make sure I am as scent free as possible including my scent look suit. I don't know if the scentlok suit was the key to the circumstances or not. It certainly didn't hurt. Regardless I was impressed that 4 bucks would walk by at that distance without smelling me. Id buy it again in a heartbeat.

i realize there are lawsits happening. However I am sold.

I think that it works very well. My only problem with it is that I get way to hot in it..just sitting in my stand not walking just sitting there feels like a sauna..but I have had a number of deer aproach from down wind.

I use it and love it, never buy it preseason, always post season, its much cheaper. I have a hard time playing the wind because the deer can come from well, just about anywhere. Also, in the bluffs, the wind likes to swirl and there are updrafts and downdrafts. Its very hard to play the wind, I am very cautious about scent. Since starting to use it, I have not been busted by smell. However, I also have a pretty strict scent regimen including showering with scent free soap before every hunt.

I exclusively use Scent Lok while bowhunting as I've had very good luck with it. I've definately noticed a difference since I began wearing it.

People have to remember though you can't just wear a Scent Lok jacket and pants expecting the deer to not smell you. Head/face, neck, hands, and feet all emit scent and you have to take care of all areas to ultimately keep your scent to a minimum.

I have used Scent Lok for 5 years now and love it. I am actually going to replace mine this year. Not because it doesn't still work, but the technology is much better now. I have the Savahna suit and I think I am going to get one of the fleece options. I don't have scent lok blaze orange or heavy jackets, but I do wear my Savahna suit underneith my heavy bibs and jacket and it seems to work very well. I touched a spike with my barrel 4 years ago. Thats how close he was. Ever sense that I have been a firm believer that it works.

you also have to shave your entire body all of it every inch if you really want elimanate scent you lose on average of 100 hair strands every hour also hair holds more scent than any other part of your body

    • Looks like a 25 pound batch? Were you able to fit all of that in one batch, or split in two?
    • Zucker is the new Parise in style, types of goals, speed, etc. Only 4 diff forwards have scored in the last 27 periods (9 games) and Koivu has only 4 goals and ended last yr with only 1 in his last 23 games...and got a hefty extension. We should obliterate the Sabres tonight, bad team playing even worse lately.  The jury is still out on the Wild, very strange team...is it lack of talent, lack of effort, poor coaching, or what?  I still think Fletcher has us setup for failure and Boudreau is trying to make something out of nothing. Thoughts?
    • The salmon I have cooked turns out great, no searing required.    Likewise chicken breast.    Steaks get seared but the end result of the combination is superior to just grilling or pan frying.   At least you aren't making spurious allegations of food safety issues.   Howcome you so mad about sous vide?  Seems like a silly thing to be so upset about.  
    • HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and you do a mighty fine job at it too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Stan!  Links in a first post lately haven't been a promising sign, but I'll comment like you are a real person.  I think they have their place however I stay hooked up pretty much all the time and use mine in colder water.  Looks like your electric heaters for sale their don't operate well with water temps under 67 which I see throughout a good chunk of the year.  Thoughts, concerns or second post?
    • we always use gloves to handle the food leaving the smoker
    • Nua, I like to run and gun causing trouble without having to answer to a higher power!    Well but God.
    • I'm sorry but I guess i didn't really pay that much attention to the residue.  I usually use a set of tongues to handle them so i really cant say.  The one thing i may do different next time is poke holes in the casings.  I didn't do that on this batch and i did get a bit of fat build up under the casing.  Not horrible but something worth considering on the next go around.
