Don't miss the 2014 New Mexico Outdoor Expo! The FREE EVENT is Sat., 9 am - 5 pm and Sun., 10 am - 4 pm, Aug. 16-17 at the Albuquerque Shooting Range Park.
The New Mexico Outdoor EXPO is fun for the whole family. Children and adults will enjoy firearm and archery target shooting, casting, fly tying, fishing for huge catfish, free exhibits, kayak instructions, waterfowl demonstrations, a climbing wall and much more. Learn from the experts how to safely fire a muzzleloader, shotgun, rifle or pistol. Become an able fly caster in minutes and learn how live game fish react to lures during demonstrations at a huge aquarium loaded with fish!
All shooting ranges will be overseen by certified hunter education instructors using Department of Game and Fish firearms and bows. Safety is always top priority.
The Expo is free to the public, although participants may want to bring along some cash for food or drinks from vendors. Be sure to bring sunscreen and a hat. The skies are usually clear and bright!
