We have returned from Milwaukee, WI, where we had a great show at Pheasants Forever’s Pheasant Fest / Quail Classic. Highlighting the Hunting Dog, Pheasant Fest is a great place to visit with several different breed representatives and learn about your next hunting partner. It was great to see all the current customers and to meet some great new customers that stopped by to say hello! Although attendance was 21,063, it was down slightly from normal attendance numbers, we still had a great show!
This was the first year that we featured products from Waterfowl Decals and they were a big hit with the crowds. We also had representatives from Owens Dog Boxes available for questions and several boxes available for customers to take home and save on additional shipping charges. Owens provides quality Aluminum Diamond Plate dog boxes for your Hunting Dog that will provide protection in the worst of conditions. Chris Anderson from Fur-Zoff was giving demonstration of both of his Fur-Zoff and Burz-off products. These products are amazing and work on the toughest hair removal projects. We also featured Launchers and Winger from Gunners Up. Gunners up Launchers are a must for the trainer that trains alone and needs a continuous throw that helpers can’t always provide. If you train alone on “Marks” these Gunners Up Launchers are indispensable. Last but not least we had a full assortment of hunting and training products to make your hunting dog the best they can be!
As always great lists of seminar speakers were available for questions. Tom Dokken from Dokken Dog Training Supplies and Oak Ridge Kennels was providing information on Shed Dog Training, Bob West form Purina’s Sporting Dog Division and Rick and Ronnie Smith were also sponsored by Purina ProPlan.
Next year’s event will once again be held in Des Moines, IA and promises to be another great event!
If its habitat, wildlife management, dog training or research for your next hunting dog; Pheasants Forever’s Pheasant Fest & Quail classic is the place to be!
Hope to see you next year!
