Do they actually have stuff for sale at this show? At ours it's mostly guide services advertising. I may go just for the dog demonstrations.

Sports show

Postby Dep666 » Tue Mar 06, 2007 6:00 am

Did anyone else go to this? I was kind of dissapointed........If there was a booth on waterfowl hunting (Besides the D U booth ) I missed it. There were plenty of guides from Canada for Bears and such. The deer mounts were pretty impressive and a couple of charter captians I know were there. Other than thet I felt like the show was kind of a waste of time.
Now don't get me wrong, there was fun stuff for the kids to do and thats cool. I'm just looking at it from a waterfowl hunter's standpoint. I think it would have been nice to have a little more exposure of the sport. Who knows if my daughter was a little older and could fish in the pond or shoot the air rifles, maybey my opinion would be different........

Matt-
Yes, I went with my 6 yr old son and 7 yr old daughter. They had a good time and yes, they shot the air rifles and bow's. I have two compalints...I walked outta there $40 poorer. Both my kids had to have a paid for admission, which I thought was too bad. And I 100% agree with you, I did not see one waterfowl booth. That would have been nice. And to be honest...I am not a huge proponent of penned game farms. A lot of guides were boasting 100+ acre fenced in boar hunt, etc. To me that is not hunting. Anyhow....good to be around hunting and fishing stuff at least.
BTW, the skoal girls were not nearly as hot as last year, nor their outfits! :rolleyes: :oops:

The one they have here in buffalo every year is just as bad if not worse. Nothing really worth while to see and waterfowlers dont really exist. It looks like the rochester show was the same week as the erie pa show so I bet alot of vendors had to choose what show to do. I see the erie pa show at least had the boys from "killin time" and longneck outdoors doing a goose hunting presentation. I'll check out the buffalo one again this weekend, at least I'll get to catch up with Jim beverly and watch a couple retriever demo's.
