Dogs at the Game Fair

20 posts in this topic

Who is bringing your hunting partner to the Game Fair?

I am probably bringing my two female Setters (so long as neither is in heat). smile.gif

I usally leave the dog at home. I'm bringing my kids though. Adding my dog to the mix makes it less enjoyable for me and one more thing to keep track of.

I am going this Sunday with the dog and next Sunday to buy my decoys if they will deal on them.

My lab did great last year on the Iams Flurry, placed second over all for the weekend I went.

She won't jump off the dock though, that caused her to miss the time by a few seconds.

Make sure your vaccinations are up to date... I know gentleman who's dog contracted distemper 2 years ago. The vet deduced it was from bringing him to Game Fair and drinking out of a "community" bucket. She had been vaccinated though I believe it was at the 'tail end' or maybe a little past when she was due. Just verify that the hound is good to go!

Good Luck!

Come say "hi" to me at the American Heritage Hunt Club booth. I'll have a great deal on pheasant wings!

It would be fun to put a face with all the people we know by their forum names!

I'm bringing my 11-mo Yellow lab Jed on Friday AM. He's a freak about jumping off the dock. We'll see how he does!

I remember the first time my dog (Sam)did the dock jump at the game fair. It was exciting to see what he would do as well as hoping he wouldn't embarress me. crazy.gif We will be there Friday afternoon.

Are you going to run any "Game Fair specials on Birds" I will be up in the Eagle Bend area in a couple weeks and want to put my dog a few birds?

After his first try which was a total disaster, Jed jumped 16 feet on his 2nd attempt.

The little Jack Russell terrier who went before him was a sight to see... what a hoot!

I put two dogs in the pointing competition. They were so confused as to why I was holding on to them with a 10' check cord. lol. They both stopped a couple times (which took up valuable time) to ask... What the "F"? Both pointed 2 birds with VERY solid points. If nothing else they got to have some fun finding some birds.

How far did the terrier jump?

The one I saw was 8 or 9 feet. Not a long jump but hilarious the way he hurled himself off the dock.

And, dragging back the duck was funny too. The dog was not much bigger than the duck dummy.

Im not sure, but the Jack Russel you are talkin about might just be my uncles dog. And he got 10 feet outta it. He has 2 that he brings up there along with his chesey. One has really wirey hair(cant remember that ones name) and the other has short hair(Jake). Last year he jumped his Chesey(My avatar has him in it) and it ran to the end of the dock and just plopped in the water! If anyone is lookin for a place to park next year my uncle lives right on the road to Game Fair(First house on the left after u turn off armstrong). He parks the cars for ya and dont charge a arm and a leg. Heck if your lookin for a place to park a small rv he has tons of room for that too. Just tell him his nephew Bill sent ya! wink.gif

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Been a long long long time since my pops took me there!

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
