      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 .

Skunk Wash

Recommended Posts

I know people have posted the recipe before and here is what I found with a search. Can someone confirm this information and if I recall correctly, you do not mix until you are going to use them.

1 Quart (approx 1 litre) of 3% hydrogen peroxide.

1/4 cup (approx 45ml) baking soda.

1 teaspoon (approx 5ml) liquid soap.

After having my dog point a skunk on day 1 of a 4 day hunting trip. I will be sure to carry this stuff.

Keep in mind that the 3% hydrogen peroxide will freeze during late season hunts if left in a vehicle. I had a couple bottles in my first aid kit and it made a little mess once it thawed because the bottle cracked/leaked. Not sure if much can be done about that.....maybe a different container.

Should be able to take it out of the vehicles by late season, but need to remember to do so.

Is there a time span that you need wash your dog with it? Like within 15 minutes? 1 hour? No time constraints? I assume it works on humans and clothing as well? I got hit a bit as well since he was pointing it in thich cattails.

I knew there was trouble when my eyes started burning. Holy snikes does that stink at 5 feet.

This is a great potion and I have used it twice.

My brittany was sleeping on my bed an hour after

she got her de-skunking bath.

I have used it several times...specifically with Dawn Dish Soap. It doesnt matter when, and you may also do a couple treatments. You dont really want to get it in your dogs eyes. I dropped a few drops of olive oil in the dogs eyes before the bath. I read that doing so should help reduce eye irritation.

I never hunt without my "skunk kit" anymore. It is NO fun driving home with a dog that was sprayed.

I have used that recipe six times already. Four times in my dog's first year of hunting. It works. It usually best to use it as quick as you can after your dog has been sprayed.

Four times in the first year?? Wow! That's some bad luck.

My dog had the honor of getting her first dose last year. She didn't get it too bad though and I think she walked through some freshly sprayed grass instead of a direct shot. I never saw the skunk but could sure smell it. I called the vet and instead of selling me the off the shelf stuff, they gave me the formula posted above and it worked as advertised.
