      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 .

Tracking Deer

Recommended Posts

What is the name of the spray that is used to spray on the ground and reveal any blood that may be there. Does anyone know how well this works and about what it costs. Also, where can one get this. Would they have it at Gander Mountain or Sportsman's Warehouse. Thanks for any info, I have a trophy buck that is laying in the woods that I lost his blood trail. i need to be able to find this deer.

sorry, should explain it a little better. put the peroxide in a spray bottle, squirt what you think might be blood and it will bubble up. go get him...

Just a thought but if you added a food coloring to your peroxide it would it mimick the store purchased products.

Yes, the county mutt will find it faster than any human!

Thanks for the good advice everyone. I will try the peroxide. I also arranged to bring my brother's yellow lab with. Here in lies the problem. I shot this deer last Sunday, I tracked till dark but had to drive four hours to make school the next morning. So my first chance to get back up there will be this Saturday. I feel horrible that even if I find the deer that the meat will be unusable, but I desperately want to find the deer being from what I saw when I shot that he very well could be a ten-pointer. So my question is, being it will almost be a week after I shot the deer, will the dog be able to pick up the scent and also would the hydrogen peroxide work on dried blood that has been sitting for a week. Thanks for the help everyone, I will post a picture if I find him.

Dog wont be able to track a week old trail but it might smell a bloated carcass.
Look for ravens.
I think if you find that deer with a spray bottle now, you most likely could have found him with a flashlight the evening you shot him.

I you have no blood trail anymore and it has been a week, you can forget the dog. Go to the last spot you had blood, and start looking from there. Check out the area for water, wounded deer head for water. If there is no water near, then head for the thickest cover around. It is a shot in the dark, but if you think you put a killing shot on this deer, putting the time in to find it is a must.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case

      Thanks for the shout out Moose.  I have plans to go out this weekend but to another lake.  I’ll ask if the other party wants to stick to those plans or head east instead.
    • Wanderer
      Yep, that’s what I’ve heard.  I’ve used loose powder quite a bit before.  My first ML was Hawken kit gun in 50 cal.  True black powder in an actual powder horn.  Patch and ball.   The only thing I didn’t like about ML season back then is I couldn’t wear the traditional clothes too!
