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 just read that article this morning myself. Pretty impressive jumper there!
Does anyone know the longest jump for yesterday (Friday)?

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'.

    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
    • That's why I remain in the adapt and live with it and hope for a solution that doesn't destroy our already sub-par deer hunting in MN. (and fishing when it comes to aquatic invaders)
    • i use the same husky bag for my helix setup works great.
    • Ice Team partnered with Navionics for a handful of online webinars.  These are pretty cool.  I thought the HSO group would get a kick out of them.  Not always easy to make all of the seminars in-person, especially when you live across the country from some of them, so these webinars offer-up a unique opportunity.  Here are the details on the ones coming up if anyone is interested...   When: December 11th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: How to Attract Fish to You on the Ice with Mark Martin. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/7012356799514703874?source=Navionics+News    When: December 19th, 8:00 PM EST Topic: Improving Your Lake Trout Ice Fishing Tactics with Bernie Keefe. Link: https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/82867287788632833?source=Navionics+News     Enjoy!
    • Nice set up. Husky also makes a lunch bag that seems to work well for ice fishing electronics. I reinforced the top lid to support my tablet and put a switch, 12v outlet & 3 port phone charger to one side. I like the extra storage on back for cables and 2 water holders for my chargers. Use the 9ah 12v lead acid battery for power. Has carry handle when closed.
    • You guys may be right.  May as well start draining every dam lake with invasive species in it to make sure it's stopped, cut down ever dam Ash tree, start shooting every Sparrow, Pheasant and netting all the Smelt out of Superior that will take some time. But we can do it!!!  Insert crazy emoticon here: 😵
    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.
