Thread: Gamefair season upon and us my thoughts on the type of people.

  1. #1

    Gamefair season upon and us my thoughts on the type of people.

    Visitors to Gamefairs fall into the various boxs below.

    1) Landed and privileged stalker, wearing red trousers and tie, but comfortable enough not to take a dog to the gamefair, and dont aspire to any European HPR or tracking dogs

    2) New mega money, Landed and privileged stalker,all the gear and no idea, wearing cream chinos and shoes from top london makers, took his labrador, who is out of control. not sure what dog to aspire to maybe a spinone.

    3) Land agent second son of a lord, with no money and no land but married well, worn out hat and clothes, Took very small jack russell to the gamefair, who is in the way of everyone

    4) Graduate out of the city, 40 something, shot 2 deer, knows everything about stalking has all the gear and a Bavarian Mountain Hound called Rupert at the show, who is wild as hell and tripping everyone up,
    Also has a chocolate labrador bitch at home in season who has been linned by the Bavarian Mountain Hound but he will advertise pups online at 500pounds listed as, improving the breed.
    Stood at the beer tent boring anyone who will listen

    5) Plumber out of the city and moved into the country, who has become nicely off, wearing blazer shirt and tie, with no land and no idea about dogs who aspires to his own land to stalk on, and took vizsla to the gamefair and again is in everyones way. Would like to cross viszla with GSP to improve the breed

    6) City Football supporter,no shirt, tattos, piercings, killed some deer with bull x ,hard bast""d, and would like to get into stalking does not care his dog tripped up an old lady, dog shits in walkway and he walks on, leaving someone to stand in it.

    7) Mechanic grew up in the country, wearing boots, shorts, and polo shirt, started with terriers, as a tyro, listened and learned, has a GWP pointer at HOME. and is competent, self assured, willing to learn
    Dog not at the gamefair therfore its not a badge of which club he aspire too.

    Donít Take Your dog to the Game Fair you are a pain in the arse.

    If you feel i have left someone out, please post your own thoughts.

    Humans are pre wired with fight or flight response
    Great Grandad fought, Grandad fought.
    For the sake of my Grandchild I wish for Less Flight responses entering Europe

    The person who was not gone to the game fair, or written about who has gone to the gamefair, who is actually out shooting with their dog.......

    Jees, must have taken you some time to think and type up all that

    I donít think youíre actually to far of the mark there, Trufflehunting!

    Why do people feel the need to drag there dogs around? Ok if youíre competing with them maybe, but other than that its just - oh look at me!

    I used to like game fairs when you could pick up a bargain but I think those days aregone now, especially the big shows there just too expensive for traders to attend and do deals all gone very commercialised.

    You did miss one group out of your list... The top to toe realtree guys with rigger boots on and running dogs!

    I love the Game Fair, but I haven't been able to go for three or four years, it's happened again this year, and next year it's back up North so harder for me. Looks like I'm heading for a five year stretch now. I don't think that 20-odd quid once a year is all that much, really. I don't expect to come home with bargains, but I do expect to be able to shop around for all sorts of stuff, to actually see and handle it as opposed to buy it online which is what I have to do 90% of the time. I expect to have a huge amount of difficulty finding something decent to eat (head for the "Festival of Food" if they still do that, but half of the stuff in their seems to be fudge) and sample many ciders of wildly varying quality. There's a bloke who looks like Hagrid from Harry Potter who makes stuff that immediately sucks all the moisture out of your skull. It's horrible, but he does look like the sort of guy you'd want to buy cider from. And most of all, it's almost the only place I ever go where everyone else thinks that my hobbies are normal.

    I don't have a dog though.

    You forgot the positive that is the accompanying gazelle-limbed "Trophy Wife" who may, or may not be on a lead!

    Young couple with pushchair and baby hot and glowing red with sun burn, dragging an 11 week old pup GSP/Vizsla/etc..., clearly dehydrated. Woman in flip-flops and crop top with burning red shoulders. Dad with tattoos up the arms, not a crop top but beer belly pushing up t-shirt which has some Afghan War motif on.

    Love it! Used to drive me mad when punters would stand idly by while their dogs pi55ed all over our stock.
