      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 .

Skin Abrasions/cuts/puncture wounds

Recommended Posts

Would like to know what you guys use for skin abrasions, cuts, and puncture wounds. I have EMT Gel in my dog's first aid kit but would like opinions on other products. Any natural creams, salves or the like that you can recommend.

I am sure there are other products out there but the best source for information comes from the guys using the various products..

Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated..

For abraisions and worn skin from running brush I use bag balm to keep my dogs in good shape on several day hunts. Super Glue is another tool in the arsenal for deeper gashes and pad cuts. For major work I carry a skin stapler which can come in handy in the middle of nowhere. I use EMT gel as well, more to speed healing on cuts than to address wounds initially.

I say about the exact same as Hubercita. Bag balm on minor cuts and raw skin - like sore or raw feet / toes. I also carry EMT gel and a skin stapler just in case. By far bag balm is the most commonly used item after an extended pheasant hunt.

Thanks Guys.... I was not aware of bag balm so I will be sure to order some ASAP... I have a pretty good first aid kit but was most concerned about skin abrasions. I also heard that Buck Mountain Wound Balm is an excellent product for abrasions, small cuts, and puncture wounds.

My dog was in some heavy rough brush the other day and has several abrasions under her eyes and I was not sure what to put on them.

I would be cautious with bag balm near the eyes. I am not sure if it would cause eye issues, but I have always put it on areas far from the eyes. That other balm you metioned sounds like it may be a good option as well.

Bag balm is not hard to find, I have found it in small town drug stores in the past. Since it is intended for milk cows, it is easy to find in rural areas.

Scott, thanks... I looked for Bag Balm this afternoon at Mills Fleet Farm in Baxter but they did not have it. Will be in S. Dakota later in the week and I am sure I can find it there. Will be careful with regard to her eyes.. The Buck Mountain Balm which is all natural stuff may be a better solution around the eyes...

Thanks for the input....

It really would be nice to work out Griffons together. I will be guiding in S. Dakota starting on the 23rd until the 2nd of Nov. My two sons are meeting me in Aberdeen on Nov 3 for five days of hunting west of Aberdeen.. Will then concentrate on MN Pheasant hunting until the end of Nov.. Then backa to S. Dakota the first week of Dec with my oldest son and a friend from Nebraska.

Just a really great time of the year...

Maybe we can find a way to get our dogs together sometime in Nov... Would really enjoy seeing them work together.

Send me an email with your thoughts... JConrad(at)att.net

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
