      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 vs Dog

Recommended Posts

Well the lab was hunting awesome and then he got hit by a Skunk. I was in ND so I did the tomato and Dawn dish soap trick. It worked pretty good but there is still some smell. Just wondering what everyone else uses for this mess

Here's a tonic I got from a Vet. in SD:

1 quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide

1/4 cup baking soda

1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap

Mix these ingredients in a bucket and wash pet with the solution. Rinse thoroughly, then follow with another bath using a moisturizing pet shampoo.

Good Luck

The peroxide method works great. I read that the tomato just masks the smell but doesn't break down the oil to remove the smell. I was in ND and I got hit by a skunk and got to ride in the back of the truck until I could change clothes. I am trying to get the stink out of my hunting pant by using clear soda like sprite. I read that on the internet somewhere. I did not want to use the peroxide as it would bleach out my pants. Glad I had a spare pair.

Both my dog and cat have got skunked; I ended up doing the peroxide, dawn dish soap, a pet shop treatment, and tomato juice. It still takes a while, especially when they get wet. Don't get the peroxide in the eyes. My cat took a direct blast to the face; he couldn't see and swallow. Washing a blind, choking, big old cat is tricky...

Re:fivebucks -Try washing your clothes in WASHING SODA- Arm & Hammer is one brand located by the laundry detergents- cheaper and just drink the Sprite.

Here's another tonic provided by the same veternarian; this one is not for living beings.

1 cup bleach or vinegar

1 tablespoon liquid dish soap

2.5 gallons warm water

Caution: Use this tonic only on non-living things

I bought a bottle of stuff from Cabelas last year called Petastic Skunk Odor Remover to leave in the suburban, well I was glad I did. My oldest lab got in a skunk one night at camp, I took her for a swim, then put on some rubber gloves and worked the stuff into her coat real well and by morning it was gone, the next day we drove home with the dog in the back of the sub and you could not smell a thing. It was a quart bottle for around $12.00 and it really worked.

The peroxide recipe is a great treatment. My dog was sprayed four times in her first year of hunting and two more times since then ( none in the last three years though). I used the peroxide treatment every time and you could have let her in the house the same day of treatment if you really had to. One trick is to try and bathe them in the treatment as soon as you can after they have been sprayed. Just that much more effective.

I swear by a product called Skunk Off. I'm sure most big pet stores carry it. Works on dogs hit at close range.

    • Yup so far this season would have had 2 nice ones with a shotgun I just keep telling myself archery is life lol
    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity.
