Game Fair Dock Jump

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone knows the furthest distance for the dock jump today (Friday). When I left today... I am proud to say... my dog "Sam" was the longest jump of 22 feet and I am wondering how long that lasted? I know there are many dogs that jump further, but I was still pretty proud! (last year he jumped only 14 feet) We were invited to the finals today, but we were not going to stay for them. So if anyone knows what the results were, I would appreciate knowing the results.
Thanks,
"hooks"

I think the record for there as well as the country is 24 ft.But not exactly sure.
I know it is over 23 ft as there was a dog there last year that was seen shortly after the fair on ESPN jumping in competition at 23 feet +
The record holder is a small black lab from Minnesota.Can't seem to remember all the details though.

I just finished reading a story about Minnesota's own "Little Morgan" in this week's Outdoor News. He has the record of 26 feet, 6 inches, they say that no other dog has broken 24 feet! The article is an interesting read, "Little Morgan" has even been nominated for an ESPY.

I think I may be the proud owner of an undiscovered champion.....Luci loves to launch off the dock. Do they measure from exactly where the dock starts??

I met Benny there and we saw a lab go 26' on Sunday later in the afternoon. Lots of dogs and people. Most were nice but also most do not mind their own dogs noses so the occasional flare up of growls and teeth are heard.

A good time. I managed 17' with my Chessie. She slipped on her last try or I saw the big 20 comming. Maybe another time. Way to go on the 23'.

    • Fleet farm site has something called brushtox, looks like it is 61% triclopyr.  31 bucks a quart.
    • I think you should get one and we can go all over Burntside and Snowbank this winter in search of lake trout. Just keep your shirt on! 😀
    • Just don’t use crossbow when it’s above 80 or going to be above 80 or it kills the lawn as well. It’s a great product, spray on clover in the morning  and it’s brown by evening. 
    • Finally got to someone that does this for a living and well respected. Triclopyr at 16% with 34% 2-4-d is in a readily available product called Crossbow. He highly recommends it. Spot treat the weeds not the whole lawn. Weed b Gon max works great on the rest of the weeds. 
    • Well things are cooling down but the fishing over deep water continues to boat fish!  Didn't slay them but got 2 more eater's this weekend over the deep water trolling for about an hour and half towards sunset.  Benn using Rapala Shadow Raps as of late and have been impressed.
    • Need to take advantage before we play Boston and Washington . Be up by 4 or 5 games when we get to those series.
    • Did another round of cottage bacon ..... 10 days brining turning the package ever other day, rinse and rest overnight in the fridge, smoke and rest over night in the fridge, and then slicing. It is a long two week process, but well worth it! If you’ve never done it, I high recommend giving it a try! I did 4 pork butts and ended up with abound 20 lbs.... gave about half of it away already, but have 4 more butts ready to brine before winter!        
    • All puppies have been sold !
    • They need to take full advantage of the easier games coming up.  I would like to see them get about 5-6 games ahead again.
    • Well painting is getting there.  The fenders and swing arm/axles are fully painted but I only managed to get about half of the frame painted.  I will get it finished up this week.  I have too because I have a large load of rock coming to finish my driveway expansion so I have a place to park my fish house this winter haha.
