Mika kills some time at Game Fair reading a back issue.

Game Fair is located at Armstrong Ranch in Ramsey, MN.  4.5 miles west of Anoka.  

It’s the second and last weekend of Game Fair

Hours are: Fri/Sat: 9a -6p, Sun 9a – 5p

Directions are listed below. 

GUNS AND DOGS WELCOME.

As soon as I saw that sign, I knew I’d come to the right place.  Last year was the first of what I hope to be many years at Game Fair.  Someone described it as being like Valley Fair, only for hunters.  That’s my kinda fair.

Once again, the Minnesota Sporting Journal crew will be manning our booth.  We had a great time last year and can’t wait to be surrounded by people who love the same things we do.

You can stop by and get your dog’s picture taken, pick up back issues for free, win complimentary subscriptions, and even pick up a copy of our new issue.  If you subscribe, we’ll throw in the new issue and a back issue for free.

My lab Mika had a great time running the events, sniffing other dogs and picking up random scraps along the way.  You can read about my experience with her in the Fall 2012 issue.  She’ll be back and ready to work her way up the standings in the competitions.  Other dogs are welcome to stop by our booth again while our photographers take their picture.  See last year’s pictures on our Facebook page.

On a sad note, it won’t be the same without Tom Knapp there.  If you missed the moving video tribute that was put together by his videographer, Jason Steussy, watch it here:
