      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 .

Leg Lifter---HELP

Recommended Posts

tmvikings

I have a great hunting dog with one problem that he does at home in the yard or when it really drives me nutz out hunting, he is always marking his territory or pissing on everything. When we go out hunting he only does it at till I hit him with the e-collar or when he starts to smell birds. So my question is what the best way and most consistent way to get not to lift his leg on everything?

Thanks for the help

Normal stuff. Please stop "hitting him with the e-collar" when he does it. That's cruelty. mad.gif

It's a male thing. As long as he has his package he's going to mark. I think the 2 options are snip snip or get a female.

From what I experienced, male dogs get the "juices" flowing when they get their "Hunt" on. I hang out with some guys who run field trials, and when they are training - those male dogs are marking EVERYTHING. I was sitting next to my pickup when a male dog, who just finished a training session ran by at a full fast trot, whizzed on a clipboard that was sitting on the ground at the corner of the truck. Never MISSED a step - he just ran on 3 legs and aimed with the other....

That's just the way it is.

Haven't you been around any male dogs in your life??! They all piss on everything to mark their territory. At this point even taking his nuts out problably won't stop it, but maybe it will slow it down in a year or two.

If you can't handle that leg lifting, on your next pup get them fixed before 6 months of age.

Beyond what has been said, which was good advice and commentary, my only add on would be to try to keep him distracted from leg lifting by getting him interested in everything else (hunting & training). I will always air him out for about 10 to 15 minutes before doing anything and that seems to take it out of him for a while. He still will mark everything in sight if given the chance. I even had a female that would pee over the top of every other dog's marks.

I try to stop him from peeing in my yard and on my bushes. I now have him trained to go in the long weeds behind my house. 100% for #2, and about 75% for #1, so it is not perfect.

I have gotten used to this behavior and it’s not as bad as I may have made it sound, but none the less I want it to stop or happen less frequently. I want to have more control and get him to concentrate on hunting right from the start not 5 min in to the hunt. I guess I was hoping some old timer would have a trick up his or her sleeve that would help….

Thanks for all the positive feed back….happy hunting …….

Hey TM Vik....I AM an old timer (ha) and I sincerely hope you will PLEASE not hit the dog with the e-collar because of this. Patience my friend, patience.

After all....put the shoe on the other foot...or the collar...and think about your own needs first thing in the morning after an all night beer bust.

Air the dog BEFORE you go into the woods. Give him a good 20-30 minute airing, maybe this will help a bit.

We went out duck hunting on Monday and he did great. Sat in the blind and retreived 3 ducks, but the one goose was way to heavy for this Brit. Might be the first Brittany duck hunter...ha thanks again!!!!

Not the first britt to be a duck hunter though. I've been using my 3 year old all of last year and again this year now. He does great. I even send him on blind retrieves thick in the lilly pads and he has always gotten every bird I have shot. I have also dropped birds while pheasant hunting the edges of sloughs, and have sent him through the muck and cattails after birds...he always get them. He isn't a big fan of sitting in the blind and retrieving in the really late season cold water, but he has never failed to bring back a bird for me. Still waiting on a goose to shoot over him though.

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.
