    From The Sixties to The eighties The New England Stag Tournament

    Good evening Sabong,
    I have crates and crates of old Gamefowl Magazines. I have been trying to find some old articles on The New England Stag Tournament. I know it was held from the nineteen sixties to the nineteen eighties. It was a Stag Tournament so I am guessing a May or June issue. Im not looking to buy it . Just what were the rules and regulations to This Tournament? I believe it was like The Claymore, but would like too know more thanks for any information

    Other than the Claymore the only info I can find is that there was the Lally stag derby that was held in Pennsylvania. It was a 8 stag, 2 day event.

    There was one that started in the sixties at Ed pipers place in hot springs Arkansas. The first year dick kliberg who ran kings ranch in Texas died of a heart attack in his hotel room the night before. The tournament or derby continued by invitation only up until Oklahoma went illegal. It always changed spots and I believe dick radke of kc combine was in charge of it. I hope that helps

    I spent a couple hours over there tonight. I recorded him for about 15 minutes. The Tournament was 4.6-5.2 or .4 he said. He said it was never advertised. I asked him how many entry’s he said he doesn’t remember. He said check that plaque on the wall bottom right. He said it might have the names. It didn’t have the names but the date was 1993. I wish I kept recording. We talked about breeding. Then we talked about The Sportsman Club and Tommy Green. I told him when I was there Tommy told me in the seventies that the Old Man had won like 19 straight 1.5 derby’s there using his Murphy’s. He said they were good. He said the last time they went to Laray or how ever you spell it. They went 6-0 with the Murphy’s. I need to bring that recorder over there more he is a wealth of knowledge.

    I only know off two men left in Maine. They are brothers. As far as I know they only do Manes. No derby’s anymore. So there are a few left.

    Pure love of gamefowl will endure. I admire a man able to make a living off the sport. But money corrupts too. Look at politics and what it comes down to. Money fosters cheating, poisons, dirty handling.

    Give me a group of men who love the gamecock and test them. That was my OK grandpaw.
