      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 .

Packing List?

Recommended Posts

Anyone have a packing list you use for your dog for upland hunting? I've got my first dog and will be taking him out to South Dakota this November and I want to make sure I'll bring everything I should. I searched the forum but didnt' find anything.

Always make sure to have a first aid kit with you. Cling wrap, first aid ointment, ect. All of the same stuff you would use on yourself you should have with for your dog.

keep an eye on the temp, water. I know it could be bad to give a dog to much water when he is running hard but in my opinion not enough is worse. Let them go into a stream or standing water if you run across it. rather stink then overheat.

The things that I've had problems with are sore feet, irritated eyes, skunks, and porkupines. Pheasant hunting is tough on the dog. Make sure he's in top-notch shape and try to get his pads toughened up. There are some good products for this. I like to use dog boots if there's snow on the ground.

There are some good dog first aid kits on the market. If you don't want to buy one, get some of the key ingredients that differ from ours. Opthamalic ointment for the eyes, a muzzle, EMT gel, etc. I also like to carry a short leash in my vest, just in case. And make sure he's got a collar with your phone numbers on it. Don't want to lose him.

I bet the two of you will have a blast. My guy is 1 1/2 years old and heading to Canada on Saturday for his first big hunting trip.

5 yds flex cohesive bandage

dog eye drops (triple Abic Ointment)

Metronidazole (for diarrhea)

antibiotic for cuts (SMX -TMP 480 mg tabs)

I get all this stuff from the vet when I bring the dogs in for check-ups.

Skunk odor remover:

This odor remover is made from simple household ingredients:

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide

1/4 cup of baking soda

1 teaspoon of liquid dish soap.

Mix the three ingredients together and use immediately. The chemical reaction produced from these ingredients lasts only a limited time.

If you use this formula to remove skunk odor from your pet, be sure to rinse off him off with water. Do not let the solution soak for more than a few minutes.

The recipe definitely works, only thing is you should use 1/3 cup of each with some water to solidify them Scrub in good and rinse well.

    • Ya saw that yesterday, glad to have him back, should shore up that 4th line or put him up on the 3rd if Ek isn't ready. Everything I saw last year from Ek has me thinking he is ready but time will tell. Need to sign Foligno yet, probably won't like the numbers I see but maybe he can surprise us. Forward group should still look really good this year, obviously the D took a hit when we traded Scandella and let Folin walk but we could still be ok, sometimes team D can make up for it. Oloffson looked good last year too, not sure about Quincy but hopefully they can form some kind of decent bottom pair. 
    • Cullen comes back on a very cap friendly deal.  1yr 1mil.
    • Manky, I have used dog food with grease as a filler and it works great! No issue but you  don't want to add to much grease and make all the dog food to soggy. 
    • A guy can never have to many decoys!
    • Boar, in past years you have posted that you use dog food at some bait sites, with grease on it, how does it work? Thanks minky
    • Anyone having any action at their bear baits? I have one bear coming in.
    • It seems like summer just got here and already there are signs of it ending. In the north a few maple trees are just starting to show some fall colors. A pair of bucks were seen this week, one still in velvet antlers and the other had already shed. The late summer yellows of tansy, black-eyed Susans and goldenrod speak of shorter days to come.Continued rain showers in the last week, especially across the north, are keeping river systems at higher than normal levels for mid-August. Brown trout fishing continues to pick up on the Bois Brule River. The catfish bite is on on the Wisconsin River in central Wisconsin with anglers landing good number of channel catfish. Some walleye, smallmouth bass, catfish and drum are being caught in the Peshtigo and Menominee rivers. Anglers have had good success on both the Fox and Wolf rivers catching northern pike, walleye, catfish and panfish.On Green Bay, anglers fishing for walleye on the west shore from the mouth of the Pensaukee River to Oconto are finally getting on to fish, while along the east shore success was more mixed with about half the boats reporting harvesting a few walleye while others did not catch any. Anglers targeting smallmouth bass along Door County had success in water ranging from 4 to 20 feet. In Sturgeon Bay perch fishing has been pretty good with some anglers catching their 15 fish bag limit including some larger 12-inch perch. .
    • I prefer and shoot 1 3/4 oz of 6's which will whack anything out to 50-60 yards
