      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 .

Looking for training collar

Recommended Posts

Walleye Guy

I added a second dog to the arsenal this year and I am now looking for a two dog training collar system. Some of the features I want included are the following:

-Two collars

-Two transmitters with the ability to use one transmitter with both collars

-1000+ yard range

-Pulse and continuous stimulation

-Five or more levels of stimulation

-No external antennaes for either the collar or the transmitters

-Advanced battery technology (hopefully Lithium Ion but NMhd is ok)

Can anyone recommend a make and model that they personally have experience with?

Thanks,

WG

Tritronics, Dogtra, and DT Systems all have collars that are at least close to your requirements. Most of the pro trainers I know of use one of these brands. Don't forget about waterproof collar and transmitter too.

I appreciate the information.

I have done some extensive research and I realize all the major manufacturers make collars with these features. I was hoping to hear from someone who has had a particularly good experience on a specific model in a two dog setting with the features I outlined above.

I have owned a Tritronics collar for seven years and frankly it has been ok at best. The reliability has been suspect and it has been back to the factory for repair twice. In both cases you couldn't turn the collar on and it wasn't a battery issue.

E-

I just ordered the Dogtra 1702NCP on Tuesday-- I checked out all the brands over the past couple months and played around with them and the 1700 really stood out as the best in my mind. It has the cool new lighted LED display with readout of the power setting(127 different power levels), it has a battery life indictator(red,yellow, and green lights), but the kicker was that it has two sets of buttons for the two collars. So instead of having to search out the toggle switch, they are right in front of you. There is a toggle, but only between nick and constant. It has the pager function which I loved and used 98% of the time on my Dogtra 1200 NCP. On top of all that, Rocky could have matching collars with his mom grin.gif Is he going to be ready for pheasant opener?

Bushwacker,

How is your young pup doing? Is he all ready for this fall? Mine is doing great. We are running both the certified and advanced APLA test in Iowa, and eagerly awaiting the fall.

Franky is definitely ready for this fall. He is chomping at the bit. I could not be happier with him, he goes 110% all of the time so my only challenge will be harnessing that energy in a goose blind. I should really run him in the APLA's too. He was at David's for a couple months and is doing really well since coming back. So far he points 100% of the time on planted birds and a couple wild hens we've ran into too, so I think he would do pretty well in the tests. When are the tests? I have never even been to one so I am thinking about just going down to watch one. Take care-

M,

Rocky should be ready for the opener. He is a bundle of energy and is pointing birds. Following Rebel around should be as good of a teaching mechanism as I can get. I am pumped for both bird hunting and bow hunting. I need to find a job wher I can take off from Septmeber until March! We need to plan to get together this fall.

      A boat and trailer are two separate pieces of equipment.  The trailer is titled and the boat isn’t.  You can have one and not the other for any amount of reasons. The wheelhouse is one item and titled, hence the plate.  Shelter tags primary purpose (besides raising money) is to officially verify who is responsible for it.  You can do that with a plate number. Is what it is.  But I’ve just been having more difficulties considering the license fees as just another drop in the bucket.  If ALL the money was used for managing wildlife and habitat I’d have an easier time with it.

      We caught em between 17' and 27' off a shoreline point. Definitely had more action in our shallower holes though.

      Got out today on Niles Bay. We had 4.5" to 6" of good clear ice. Only one walleye between the two of us but the tullibee and whitefish were on a tear. Even got a nice bonus pike! Hoping to dial in the walleyes over the next couple days.

      First ice fishing trip today out of morson ontario .  Fishing  was a little slow got a few walleyes and a couple of crappies . Lost what little  snow we had today made the ice really  slippery. Found 9 to 11 inches of ice.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
