Game Fair...The "State Fair" for dogs.

5 posts in this topic

Who's getting excited? I went last year for the first time in about 10 years, and I had a really good time. It was fun to see all the different dogs and puppies, and most impressive to me was Tom Dokken's seminar with his pooch, Rookie. Is there a list of events and times for any of these seminars? I suppose I could call somewhere. I'm bringing my little cousin with this year. He's getting really into bird hunting and has his mind set on a German Wirehaired Pointer in the next year or two. Should be fun!

The "Outdoor News" usually has a listing of the seminars and their times. Game Fair also has a web site that you can check out.

Though I might run my dogs in it again, I think the pointing dog competition is pretty hokey. My dogs thought I was CRAZY chasing them around behind a 6-8'lead. I think they should compete without a lead, either that or a MUCH longer one.

I hear you...didn't care much for that competition as well, from what I saw of it. I like it more or less because of all the different dog breeds to see and the few deals you can find there. Other than that, it just gets me pumped for bird hunting season. Now the Pheasant Fest in St Paul this coming January...that's something that should be really fun to go to.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
