      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've tried it and had success with deer hitting it. I've also used BLB's mix posted on this site and had just as good if not better luck with it and it is by far cheaper.

It's only illegal if it contains a food product. I looked at BLB's ingredients and it's perfectly legal. I couldn't find the ingredient list for deer co-cain so I can't say one way of the other. I can say that the molasses-based stuff that's out there would be considered baiting. Rule of thumb - if it's a scent or mineral, it's legal. Adding corn syrup or molasses to your favorite mineral mix would be baiting. If it contains a food base (e.g., molasses, corn), it's illegal. For example, Gander is currently selling a $20 cake that's corn-based. While it looks like a mineral block, it's illegal. Remember, just because they sell it doesn't mean it's legal to hunt over.

I hope that helps.

Buy yourself some good old Morten salt with Iodine and a bottle of Evian or tap water. Head out to the place you see some buck signs and work the salt into the ground. Then water the ground so the salt will leech into it farther.

If you want to see a buck with its head in the ground, this is a proven method. It is also legal and cheap on the wallet. Oh, and make sure the ground is dirt that you are applying salt to and not rocky. It will be easier for the deer to dig a hole.

I put out some deer caine about a month ago. The deer haven't paid much attention to it in one spot. The squirrels seem to like it a lot. I will check another spot tonight. Perhaps there it is all gone and a huge 12 pointer is down on his knees licking up the dirt.....

I have had great luck with it this year... but next year I am going with the 'home brew' mix.

Good Luck!

Gissert

1 part standard loose stock (white) salt

2 parts red loose cattle mineral

1 part di-calcium phosphate

I buy the stuff at Fleet Farm in 50 pound bags. Dig a hole about 6-10 inches deep, and about three feet across. Mix the materials well. I like to dump each bag in a corner of my Otter trailer, and then pull them all to the center to mix them. Dump the whole works into the hole, and mix some of the dirt from the hole back into the mix. Refresh every six months or so.

It is getting a little late in the season for them to be effective. The deer crave them more in the spring and summer. In may, June, and July, I got tons of pictures of deer digging in the minerals. Once the velvet comes off, buck use drops dramatically. They still give it a sniff, but are more interested in the clover right now.

The great thing about these licks is they give deer the mineral they need and crave once it starts warming up in the spring.

Oh yeah,not to be a wisenhimmer or anything but here goes,I believe the product is called "deer caine"not deer cocaine although deer on cocaine would probably be almost impossible to stick as they would'nt stand in one place to long.c63

      looks like 3 so far.  anybody else up for this?

      Sorry dude I tried but this page isn't most active with facebook groups being the biggest way most people share ice thickness in a realtime way.  There's only one way to really know and that's grab a spud bar and start hitting as you walk and drilling holes to see.

      Be looking at these two general areas. Thanks for heads up on south end.

      My son and I fished from 8 - 4 yesterday out of Beacon Harbor.  It was super windy so we couldn't be as mobile.  We caught 6 eyes, all under 17", in about 8' of water and another 10 after we moved out to 11'. Also a few big Perch.  Only 2 fish on dead stick and the rest jigging.  Gold or pink seemed to work the best.  Fun day! Nels

      OK thanks.  I haven’t had an issue yet.  I just got low on powder and needed primers so I decided to try the Blackhorn 209 now.  I remembered reading this post. At the C store there were plenty of Triple 7 and Remington 209 primers in the ML supplies @ 9-10 bucks/100.  The shotgun primers were running running low though and I grabbed the last 100 pack.  They’re only 4 bucks/100.  I figured it would be a cheap experiment if nothing else.

      Not a hundred percent on the age but it's a Frabill Excursion and both are in brand new condition. Not to worried about the weight of it it won't be more than a handful of times of pulling it out before driving my truck out with it. The price difference between the two is what I was looking at.
    • FirstIce
      Does anyone have any input on the kdrill on a gas auger? I have seen a few people use this setup. Do you need a special adapter to use it?
    • Wanderer
      Are they both the same age?  Equal condition?  Do you hand drag or machine pull?  Weight will matter a lot. You really have to consider how you plan to use the house.  Happiness with the houses performance is the biggest key.   Otherwise it appears to be a trade from a $480 house to a $700 house based on new house prices if I looked at the right Frabil.
    • icepike 1
      It's not thermal. How's frabill's customer service in case you break a poll or something?
    • going4it
      The only problem I had with my frabill was its weight. It was a tank to pull and tough to put in the bed of the truck.
