Game Fair?

9 posts in this topic

My my wife and son and I are heading to Bemidji to visit sister and thought about hitting the game fair first then up to her place. I have never been there but heard good things.

Do you guys recommend checking it out? What is there to see?

Can you buy/shop for hunting gear there? Is it worth the 4 and half hour drive east before heading north?

thanks

If you've never been to Game Fair I'd say yes to all of the above. There is plenty stuff to see and for sale.

I guess the only thing I would qualify is it depends on the weather. Raining? Really Really hot? I may skip it and hope that it's better on the way back. I've never thought the deals were that great, but they probably pick up on the last day when folks don't want to haul stuff back. There are some neat demonstrations that you can spend a lot of time at.

As far as deals at Game Fair are concerned...I'm out there every day all day and have been so for the last four years. In my opinion there are a few extra deals to be had at a few places the last day, but most everybody is going to give you the same deal day one as day six.....it's not like this is the only show they do. Most of the exhibitors pack up from Game Fair and head either to the State Fair or the DU show in Osh Kosh.

You don't get the deal you don't ask for!

    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
    •   Non-matching carpet and drapes have been known to cause numerous issues, too, with or without beetles, especially in Los Angeles. Keep the hamsters safe by putting in a zip-loc bag during spraying.
    • Yes, I agree with you, but there are some professionals in Queens NY who provides an eco-friendly spray, which is not harmful.
    • I smoked a pork shoulder yesterday that turned out great, but the rack it sat on took a lot of soaking and scrubbing to get clean afterwards. Got any tricks to keep the rack less crusty? Spray it with Pam before the smoke or??
    • I stopped at a small engine shop on my way up north Monday and he confirmed what RebelSS said. I got some yellow tubing and after struggling for almost 1/2 hour, got the lines reconnected and went out and whacked some weeds. Thanks for all the replies.
    • I read somewhere that the chemicals used by Queens NY pest control caused male pattern baldness and birth defects in pet hamsters. 
    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
