      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 .

Bathroom Concern

Recommended Posts

Jimmy from Cottage Grove

Hey guys I am just in my first week with my new springer. She is 11 weeks old. I just got her last week. I noticed that sometimes when she goes to the bathroom. Sometimes it is kind of runny. Is this common. They told me that she was just given some dewormer right before I picked her up. It has been like this since I got her. She seems to act completly fine. And seems to be doubling in size everyday. Any help

Several things can cause this issue. "Maybe" the new "enviroment" has gotten her overly excited or worried being away from the litter and upset her stomach. "Maybe" the breeder gave her a different food than you are feeding now. "Maybe" it's possible the kids are feeding her scarps from the table? "Maybe" the treats given to her are more or not the same as she is used to? Usually it will clear up quickly, see the vet if it has'nt in a few days. Just my two cents.

I agree, wait a couple more days. If it doesn't get better than see the vet. Lots of new changes and new stress will do that to a dog.

Congrats and good luck with your new springer.

She is fed the same food. And I have no kids, so she hasn't been fed any different. I mean it's not like diahrea or anything. The last couple days she seems to have had a normal one, then she walks like another five feet and the next one is a little less solid then the first one. She has been drinking alot of water though. Not as much as you have stated in yours though. I would say she is drinking about 2 or 3 cups a day.

Probably a puppy parasite. Lots of different intestinal bacteria(s) can form in a puppy... especially under stress. A 10 day regimen of medicine should clear it up... Bring a fecal sample to the vet. They will have an answer for you in no time. I see you're from Cottage Grove, Try Dr. Cederstrom of Park Grove Pet hospital. They'll straighten the pup out right away!

Good Luck!

Now today it has been just fine. So who knows. Labs are you familiar with park grove? I still haven't chosen a vet yet. Someone suggested them and carver lake in woobury.

They are both very good vets! Smart too... (they both have Labs out of my dogs grin.gifhehehe). My choice is Cederstrom @ Park Grove, because he is close to home and I can openly challenge conventional vet practices with him and he is honest and forthright in his answers. He has also earned my deepest respect as a vet. DR. Cederstrom has done everything for me the last few years including saving 2 of my whelping females! I have total confidence in all that he does.

Dr. Gugisburg @ Carver Lake is a bang-up guy himself and is a hardcore hunter, so he is really into sporting dogs. I have never used his practice, but I would not hesitate to do so. He came over to Park Grove to take a picture of his pup being born (C-section) and when very severe complications set-in and Dr. Cederstrom needed another vet to assist, he jumped right in at no charge! The 2 of them are friends and talk highly of each other, so I don't think you would do wrong at either place! Tell either that I gave them high marks!

Back to your pup... I'd still take a stool sample in if you even see it one more time. Take it from that stool... My last lab pup did the same thing, runny stools and then fine for a day or two and then back again... She went through this twice as a pup. Eventually they tend to outgrow it, but I still treated it and it turns around in a hurry. It is inexpensive to get a fecal exam and the meds if needed...

Good Luck!

Hey labs. I just thought I would let you know. My dog started getting the looser stools again. So I brought her in to carver lake to get her checked out. Everything came back negative. Thank god. I just thought you might want to know that Dr. Gugisburg left carver lake. I guess he opened up his own vet clinic somewhere by bill's gun shop.

      I have not heard any reasons for the purported relocation.  Just thinking out loud here - Walker Bay has not had enough ice in many of the past years, so they have to hold the event on shore and not on the lake.  There is limited space for a shore event there.  Maybe Bemidji makes more ice and/or they have more on-shore accommodations.  Walker itself is more of a tourist and family town and the Pout Fest is not that.

      Hunters are reminded to register deer before processing, before antlers are removed and within 48 hours after taking the animal, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Deer registration provides information that is essential to our ability to manage deer populations,” said Steve Merchant, wildlife populations and regulations manager. “Hunters are required to register deer and it’s a fairly simple process.” Hunters register deer with a phone call, online or in person. Before registering a deer, hunters must validate their site tag. The validated tag must be attached to the deer when the deer is placed on a motor vehicle or an ATV, a vehicle or a trailer being towed by an ATV or brought into a camp, yard or other place of habitation. Phone registration
      Register deer via phone by calling 888-706-6367. Directions are printed on each deer hunting license. Have a pen or permanent marker ready. A confirmation number will be given; it must be written on the license and site tag. Internet registration
      Register deer via internet at mndnr.gov/gameregistration. Directions will be similar to phone registration, and a confirmation number must be written on the license and site tag. In-person registration
      When phone or internet registration is not possible, hunters must take their deer to a big-game registration station. The person whose name appears on the license must be present at the registration station with their deer. They will receive a big-game possession tag that must be attached to the hind leg, ear or antler where the site tag was attached. A list of all stations organized by city and county is available at any DNR wildlife office or at mndnr.gov/hunting/deer. During registration, the hunter must use the permit area number where the deer was harvested; using the wrong deer permit area for registration is illegal. Registration instructions for all methods are available at mndnr.gov/gameregistrationhelp. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Hi Jim, the problem with channels on Tonka is not only the current, which keeps the ice thin all winter, but also due to the effects of road salt/chemicals.  Many of the channels have bridges over them which receive a lot of automobile traffic.  In the winter, road salt/chemicals are pour on the roads during adverse weather conditions.  Cars and especially snow plows cause the salt/chemicals to splash over the guard rails and onto the ice.  When you see new reports of cars going thru the ice on channels, it's usually right under a road overpass, for this reason.  Because of the road salts, channels are just a super dangerous place to be, even during our coldest winters.

      I'm pretty sure there is still a winter only access on Smith's bay just north of where hiway 51 intersects hiway 15 at the lake.  It's just before the North Shore Marina. You'd have to trailer to there but then you'd have the main lake to fish.

      Pheasants banded in Nobles and Redwood counties Pheasant hunters can voluntarily report roosters that were banded as part of a study being conducted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  DNR Farmland Wildlife Populations and Research Group workers captured and banded roosters during a research project. The two study areas involved in the project are the Lamberton Wildlife Management Area complex in Redwood County and the Worthington Wells Project Area south of Worthington, located in Nobles County. Although the study is focused on hen pheasants and their broods, roosters were also opportunistically captured in an attempt to collect survival information on males. A plain metal leg band with a unique identifying number was placed on the right leg of each rooster. Hunters are asked to contact the Farmland Wildlife Research Group to report harvest information. The band number, date of harvest, and location information (WMA name or GPS coordinates preferred) are requested. If hunters want information on when and where the bird was initially captured, they may also provide their contact information so that researchers can return their call. GPS locations and personal data will not be made public. Although Minnesota has a rooster-only hunting season, hunters who come across a dead radio-collared and/or banded hen are also asked to call with information so that researchers can refine their hen data. To voluntarily report birds marked as part of this study, contact Lindsey Messinger, 507-642-8478, ext. 224. Alternatively, people may contact Lindsey by email at Lindsey.Messinger@state.mn.us. This work is funded in part through the Federal Aid in Wildlife Restoration Act. Additional details about pheasant hunting are available at mndnr.gov/hunting/pheasant.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, in conjunction with the Michigan and Wisconsin natural resources departments, will take questions about the Lake States Forest Bat Habitat Conservation Plan at 3 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 31. The phone conference is for anyone interested in the integration of forest practices with conservation measures to support bat populations.  Forest bat populations are rapidly declining, and one or more species may soon be reclassified as endangered. If reclassified, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provides the opportunity to develop a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP). An HCP helps endangered species recover by setting out habitat conservation plans during land management activities. In preparation, Minnesota and neighboring states are developing a forest bat HCP that aims to maintain bat habitat and allow important forest management activities to continue. Input from forest land owners, forest managers, conservation groups and other stakeholders is essential to developing an effective HCP. An introductory video describing the HCP process and how to participate is available at https://youtu.be/46IAHTaqJQE. The DNR encourages participants to watch the video prior to the Oct. 31 question and answer session. To access the session, in the ten minutes prior to the call start time, participants should dial 855-802-6790 toll-free and, at the prompt, enter the conference ID code 93441291. Anyone requiring an accommodation to participate in the phone conference is asked to email bathcp.dnr@state.mn.us or call 651-259-5919 as early as possible. More information is available at mndnr.gov/bathcp.   Contact: Lindsey Messinger, wildlife research biologist, 507-642-8478, ext. 224.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
