We’ve strayed from our “Art Festival” tour, to do a “hook and bullet show”. The Anoka Game Faire is a trade fair for dedicated hunters and fisherman. Trials for coon hounds, setters, pointers, sniffers and all manner of dogs was the entertainment for most fair attendees. More well trained and obedient hunting dogs per square foot than anywhere on earth.
Our booth was in close proximity to the Minnesota Falconers Association. Throughout the weekend I enjoyed visiting with this “higher order” breed of sportsman. Most falconers fed their birds throughout the day. I realized that while sitting visiting with these folks, that I was the only one in the group that didn’t carry a few extra mice in my pockets.
