Kelly Farm Hunt Test

20 posts in this topic

Any members running dogs at this weekends event? Hope to be up there Sunday for a bit. Will be viewing the/a senior event. Should be there about 10ish according to her draw. Watch for the couple standing on the tailgate with binoculars. First chance we've had to see our little girl run.

Good luck Bryce. It's fun to watch these events. I just started doing the hunt test thing myself and just finished a junior hunter. It is addicting.

Thanks guys. Luck needs to go to the hound and her handler. I'm just a spectator and most likely will not see the entire event due to graduation parties that need to be attended. A big thank you to PBC for the compliment. Running Sunday is 3rd generation of our breeding. Avatar is her mother.

Not sure what is all running on Sat. but Sun. is junior and senior. Jezebel is in senior A. Official AKC events require preregistration.

I believe it's Greg Ye. Unless Bryce changed trainers in the last couple of months...

Good Luck!

Ken's got it. Easy association but no ties to Nan-Dool lines.

Ken, I thought Greg sold his property and moved out west, Montana or Colorado?

Never got it sold... he's still in western WI. He does have his winter grounds he owns in Texas and he was going to move to his summer grounds by Deer Park, WI. But last time I chatted with him that had not taken place due to the slowness of selling the original kennel property.

Good Luck!

Wasn't able to stay for awards so wanted to make sure it was listed on entry express before celebrating a pass. Handler was very pleased with only 2 1/2 weeks back in camp. Didn't take good lines on either memory bird but came up with both with short, effective hunts and no handling. Pretty sure quite a few dogs got dropped after handling on both memory birds. Only big fault was a slipped whistle on first blind. Both blinds had big trouble long of the bird and everyone was trying to stop the dogs right at the bird for a final push. Saw at least two other dogs already have the bird winded at the final whistle blow and ignore the command. She 3 whistled the second blind and I'm pretty sure one of the whistles was to show control of the dog to the judges after the slip. 2 more to title and then probably play around in a couple qualifiers.

What would the title be, SH or MH? Also, with the Master National in Virginia, MN this year is it your goal to get her/him qualified for that and run it?

Running for SH. She's really over trained for the events but want that title before we ratchet up the games. Not going to say MH isn't a worthy title, but don't see any value in it for me. Would much rather try for a QAA dog for puppy value. Sounds like the judges are really cranking down on the MH dogs in the region since so many are trying to qualify for a "local" national event.

Big weekend for dog events. Going to run the old girl in a fun event in Glencoe Saturday morning. She doesn't stand much of a chance against the young dogs but the eyes still light up at the line even at 11+ years. Good donation of $ to an upstart habitat org. Jezebel runs for SH title Sunday at Kelly Farm. Missed a couple events due to handler personal commitments and then a jam packed 2 weekend period due to heat cycle.

It's an AKC test they ran master and junior on Saturday and Junior and senior on Sunday. I think it's northern flights hosting it.

I am supposed to be running in Senior today but had to scratch my dog Friday night she came into heat. I'm really bummed we had gone 4/4 up to this point in senior and I was hopefully going to finish it off this weekend.

Saw a couple dogs were scratched in senior B. Senior A was a battlezone. Left after our dog was dropped but wouldn't be surprised to see less than 25% pass rate. They dropped 9 of 31 on the first series which was just a land double mark. Next series was water(mostly mud) double mark followed by water blind followed by land blind and then honor. Lot of tired dogs breaking honor and hyped dogs breaking from sitting in holding blind so long. Didn't see our dog on the first series but handler said she stomped them. She went out on the marks in the next series. Tall grass waist high plus 2-3 feet behind the mark. Many lost dogs(including ours) if it got into that trouble. Dogs were passing but it was tough.

    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
    • The curved blades may very well be the "Jet" part that made it different from their other hand augers?
    • It's always nice to have fresh homemade pickles in the winter. Jalapeno peppers will be next.
    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like what I had heard from the guy I met at upper red who was from the area. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
