      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 .

I know that sent illimanation is probally the most crittacal thing in hunting whitetails and I've taken the time to play the wind , use sent suit and sent blockers,sent on the ground. You get the I idea my Question is you've gone to the effort in controlling your sent what about the Gun. (cleaners,solvents,oil, powder from shooting)? I can just open some of the solvents in the garage and my wife immedatly asks what are you doing that stuff stinks.I was always taught to shoot from a clean gun. Thats kind of always been in the back of my mind while I'm sitting in the tree stand. What do you guys do?

i think I was on Cabelas'website and there is a no scent oil and stuff like that. They are making products that are designed to lubricate and protect your gun yet not smell. If I find the site with a link I'll pass it on but I know they make something.

Thanks Code-Man I had herd about that stuff and figured it would be to expensive to buy, but thats a really good price on that stuff. The only thing that stinks is the shiping costs as much as the product. still not a bad price though.

Does any body know if one of the sponsers of this site might carry that type of product?

love to hunt

I don't think scent control is as critical when gun hunting as opposed to archary. Regardless you still need to at least take wind into account.

With that in mind I would say:

It depends on where and how you hunt. If you are in tight cover it makes a big difference. You will need the deer close and if they smell your gun the gig is up.

If you are hunting an opening, place you stand off 100-150 yds and clean your gun with what ever works the best.

I personnally have not had problems. I hunt the south side of an opening and expect deer to come in on the north side. Prevailing winds blow the stink away from the deer and I get a nice 125 yard shot.
