I don't know why anyone who has ever been to one of these sportsman type expos would ever want to go again. They are a complete waste of time and money in my opinion. A nice walk in the woods would be much more educational and worthwhile.

Remember the past shows whenthe majority of the show was made up of a variety of manufactures. With the opportunity to see new bows, firearms, fishing tackle and so on, first hand. And being able to get some great deals at the show. Like you stated , it's been mostly outfitters, charter captains or vacation booths.[/align]

They were sellin em like hotcakes! The place was crowded so getting bumped all the time was just part of the deal. Bet me and my buddy got bumped a couple dozen times by those darn things rolled up and tucked under folks arms. If you could kill a deer with em the herd would be in trouble this season!

I wouldn't. I had to meet a guy from Illinois there about our leases. Otherwise I sure wouldn't have bothered. Very crowded even on a Wednesday.

Myfriend and I went on Wednesday to talk to the outfitter of our upcoming spring bear hunt in Maine. Some things had changed since we booked the hunt and we just wanted go overthe changeswith him. As far as the show,I really don't see myself going again anytime soon. Sitting in traffic, $8.00 parking, $12.00 entrance fee [ for what? ], $15.00 for two hot dogs,two bottles of water and two bags of chips for my son and myself.And crowds. No thanks.
