      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 .

My suit is like three or four years old. Can I continue to "activate the carbon" in it with the dryer or is it losing it's power?

Has anyone seen this?

Help?

This is the answer I found after a little research.

The lifespan of the product really depends on how you use it. We roughly say that it should last you 3-5 years; about what you would expect from other hunting camo. If you are a knee walking, belly crawling extreme hunter out there 5 months a year, the life span may be shorter. If you are in the field for 20-30 days a year and follow our instructions, 3-5 years can be expected. Some hunters are still wearing our original suit

I've heard a good tactic is to really just douse the whole suit with doe in heat urine and then put it in the dryer for about an hour on high. Or the microwave. That will work too. grin.gif

Yeah -- I would be sleeeping with Copper in his kennel.

Anyone else notice how long their suits last?

Any way to tell if it still works?

I do believe that if you shower without scented soap, leave all other scents of and use unscented deoderant, along with unscented hair soap and play the wind in your favor, you should be good to go. I have heard of people using baking soda to sprinkle on thier clothes but have not tried it.

Years ago many great archers only had the wind to use in thier favor and they seemed to shoot plenty of trophies. I personally own all the scent lok clothes and sprays and sometimes believe that if I play the wind right, get high enough in my tree stand that I will not get busted very often.

I think at times I do get caught up in all the new gadgets out there to use for deer hunting and forget that I always did harvest a deer in green clothes with the wind in my favor.

Are you telling me I had to sleep on the couch last year cause I put half a bottle of deer pee in the fridge for a week before my wife noticed it? I honestly did that. Inside a ziplock bag of course. I have some common sense. grin.gif

I have to agree with Harvey. I just try to play the wind and keep scent to a minimum. My routine includes washing my camo with baking soda and hanging out to dry, storing in big ziplock storage bags, and showering up with scent killer shampoo/soap before I head out (if I can). I also use that nonscented deodorant. I wash my camo every few weeks but air it out after a hunt by hanging in a tree in the yard before putting back in the bag. Sounds like a lot of work but its all really subconscious. Just a routine.

I've been thinking about trying that homemade scent killer that I think Dietz posted but wondering if the hydrogen peroxide will fade my new fancy pants Predator camo. Any expereince with camo fading with this stuff Dietz or anyone?

I activate my carbon suit about 2-3 times a year. I usually don't hunt when its really hot out so I don't smell too bad. I will try and get as many years out of it as possible. This will be year three for me and I can see after 2-3 more years with it, I'll probably need to get another one. I try not to wear it for anything but deer hunting but its also water resistant so sometimes it makes it out in the spring for turkey hunting, but I don't activate it. I always wash it in a scent free soap. I also take a shower before every hunt and use scent free body wash and deodorant. I very seldom get busted by their nose.

BTW, my doe pee is still the refrigerator from last year in the plastic bottles. I don't think my wife knows what they are.

the peroxide you use in that mix, is the over the counter stuff, so it won't fade or damage anything!

      From someone who grew up as a back reeling aficionado, I've learned to appreciate a quality drag on a reel.  It's the one thing I'll gladly pay for. Modern drag systems are so much better than they used to be.  Not taking advantage of them is leaving a lot of the value of a quality reel on the table.  Unused and wasted. So, is that the kind of opinion you were looking for?

      They are already established in OT.  Pulled docks at my sisters place with about 75% covered in zebes.  Wear shoes when your in the water.

      I noticed this spring that the higher end Shimano Stradic and others have eliminated the ability to back reel (no reverse) which I believe is a huge mistake, I don't like it!    any others have comments?

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.
