      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 .

Cleaning out dogs eyes after hunting

Recommended Posts

Im sure most of you have have this issue before. After you take your dog hunting, the dog comes back with all kinds of foreign objects in their eyes. I was wondering if anybody knows if it would be safe to use regular contact solution to clean them out. The contact solution is a sterile solution. Thanks.

Gunk in the eyes is a common issue. You can gently use a Q-tip to get the seeds & gunk out. Then afterwards I will sometimes put opthalmic ointment in their eyes to help soothe them and help prevent conjunctivitis.

I ask my vet this exact question a couple weeks ago and he recommended using contact solution to thoroughly flush the dogs eyes at the end of every hunting day.

Good in theory...we'll see how my dog puts up with it.

My thoughts, too, but ours is fine with it. He's very easy going, though, until you try to brush his teeth or clean his ears smile

I have used contact solution when working my dog and she gets a seed in her eye. Easy to do and the dog does not seem to care too much. Now I keep a bottle or two in the car

Yep, Saline or Contact solution works great. You'll have to hold the eye lid open and squirt in and let it "overflow" for some time as you'll be amazed at home much junk is in there. Do a couple of different times to get the majority of stuff out.

Wait until one has a couple hundred porcupine quills to pull & you are a couple miles from the rig, much less a vet. Needlenose pliars, hemostat, check cord, reins, and a tree/ fencepost all come in handy. Also the leather gloves will be a godsend for the ones down their throat.

Bloody ? Of course but having seen what a quill does as it migrates through soft tissue give you a certain resolve to get them out ASAP!!! Not fun.

My lab can not stand the saline solution. She does not like squirt bottles of any kind. If it is still early season, I like to toss a few training dummies in to the lake for her. This seems to work well to clean out her eyes.

Other wise I just suck it up and use the saline. Not fun but has to be done.

    • A bit off subject and I love firing up the smoker for a little meat centric voodoo as much as anyone but time and seasoning costs money and sometimes I find that by the time you buy everything we use to bring,inject,rub,produce and trap the smoke and otherwise cover these lesser cuts to make them taste right we could have had a nice steak on a grill.  
    • I'd love to show these pics to my wife but if I did, she'd just throw our house away!  Excellent project!  Well done. 
    • Went to Ely yesterday to winterize ours and replace the vent domes.  I looked closer at the caulking in various areas and wasn't comfortable with what I was seeing, plus it really needed a pressure washing.  I'm pretty sure the water heater is on the fritz too.  Hooked it to the truck and hauled it home for service.  A 40 foot box in yesterday's wind and rain for 4 hours was interesting but I'm glad I can get everything taken care of that I've been wanting to change and just bring it back up in the spring, ready for fun.
    • Looks great, but LRG has a basement window in his.
    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?
