      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 .

No Stinki' Bugs/Ticks

Recommended Posts

Knute78

This product is of intrest to any early season deer archery fanatics. Me being one of those, I was wondering if anyone used this product (No stinkin' Bugs by Robinson Outdoors) last fall. I was thinking about it but when I sprayed the No Stinkin' Bugs Unscented at home to see if it was truly odorless I thought it smelled like Off bug spray.

I don't know if it is true or not but to me if I can smell it the deer will certainly be able to smell it. I use other Robinson Outdoor products (clothing and scentfree products) and trust they know what they are doing when it comes to scent control but it was not enought to convince me once I smelled the product. So,I didn't use it.

Has anyone used it? If so, did you see any deer, and if you did, did they detect you and high tail it out of there?

Thanks for any input, Keep the arrows flyin',

I have not used the stuff that you mention, but I did find something I really like. Its called Deerhunters Insect Repellent with Earth Scent, by Repel. It only has 52 % deet in it and works very good... Smells like dirt or mud I guess. Never had any problems with deer picking me out when I wore it either.Seen plenty of bucks with it on.

I used the "no stinkin' bugs" last year. It's fall blend earth scent in a red can. The first night I used it I shot a nice doe, ten yards away, didn't know I was there.

shamalex72, I just moved a couple miles north of Fort Ripley and was wondering if you could offer any info on where to start looking for a spot to bowhunt this fall. I don't really want to hunt public but if I have to I will, don't think I could not be in the tree somewhere! Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!!

Almost all the land around Sebie Lake is public,close to 1500 acres, I think. There aren't too many bowhunters, but it gets pounded pretty hard during rifle. That is where I got the doe I was refering to.

There is a some county land around the area too, I havn't hunted it yet but I going to check it out this year.

Chad-

I have used it and think it was fine. The final scent smelled like fall folage. I say final scent because when you first spray it on, it smelt too strong to me. My buddies tried my can once and wouldn't use it again. I'm also curious to hear what others think.

I too had success using the earth scented "red can". I would be in the tree and not have a skitter on me. I'd meet my buddy at the truck and he'd be sayin," those stinkin' bugs were terrible tonight."

I'm still VERY curious to see if the new FDA approved repellant, PICARIDIN (which is truly effective by the way. I used it at my cabin) will be a viable option for deer hunters. It's not oily. No noticable smell, to me anyway. It doesn't trash rubber and plastic.

I got mine in a product called Cutter Advanced. Totally worth a try.

      well we finally got our home computer back so it sure is nice to be able to type again instead of using the phone.
      The wind were wicked Monday night but by the looks of it this side of the lake held together so that's real good news.
      Lonnie and his buddy braved the winds yesterday and headed out ,they managed to get 7 of there 8 but it was a tougher bite then last time they were here on Saturday.
      This weekend is going to be crazy up here as I have had quite a few inquirers about lodging on shore. Buddy Hillmen may have something but he is tough to get a hold of as he is busy building that mammoth house.
      We ran into a hiccup on blue thunder and have a part we can not get off to replace. I'm hoping Tom can come over and button it up. as Devon worked his butt off to get er done. You could see the disappointment in his eyes, Blue thunder is my work horse and I'm feeling the pressure of getting her up and running..
      Our new used lake truck may show up sunday if all goes well. Its name is Cheyanne "I think that's spelled right. It blew a radiator in fargo and is arriving on a trailer .
      Old Minnesota is the only house that I have not detailed as I also had some major work on her that was ignored while I was trying to break 80 at the golf course this summer. Every one have a great thanksgiving and if your coming up here make sure you check in the resort your going out of as they have been on the ice everyday

      I've got 6- 8" on my home lake. I've heard reports of 3" on Eastern side of Fish Lake from High Banks Resort-Blue Max.

      Idiots   I am heading up Friday I will be walking out don't have to go far for good fishing this early

      If I remember right you used to have to get a license a while ago before they changed it to the if you occupied it rule. I don't think 14.33 a year is going to break anyones bank. Hopefully they use the extra money for stocking purposes
    • Fishing Frenzy
      Yeah looks like the 2nd weekend in December if we're lucky before you can ice fish this area. Going to be another late year on the ice.

      Next year you will have to buy one for wearing long underwear or pac boots.

      Love the reports Smuts. Looks like another great season. Keep it going!
    • slammer
      It just never ends in this state.  Tax, tax, tax.  Where does this money go?  Whats next?   A tag for your vehicle to drive on the ice?
    • leech~~
      Fun for some folks that went exploring early ice from a few years ago.

      Hi Cookie,  a buddy and I are going up this weekend.  Will they bite much after dark or is the water too mucky this early.  I appreciate any info.  Thanks
