I plan on going today or Sunday.
John works hard to get vendors from around the U.S. and Canada to make it a good show.

I spent the afternoon up there.
Lots of guide services represented.
There is a lot of taxidermy to view. Thats the stuff I like... it keeps your hopes up the next time you get out.
I was suprised that you cannot buy a duck call.
Turkey, deer, varmit, even goose. I just saw nothing for ducks!
I'll be seeing the organizer and I'll mention it. Maybe I missed someone.
Overall its a good excuse to get out.

If you go don't forget your Camp Ta-Kum-Tah raffle tickets.

I went there yesterday morning and though there were few waterfowl exhibitors they were helpful. Personally I have only seen the Duck Water Boats in pictures and it was nice to see one in person even though I can only dream. Alec from Dead Creek Calls let us try out a few of his goose calls and they look and blow great. It would be nice to see more waterfowl exhibitors at this show.

I went and was really disappointed No Duck and only a few goose displays, the duck boat was cool. But $10 for an hour wasn't worth it to me. :no: I'm not a deer hunter so thats the reason for that. marshmallow gun was cool.
Theres nothing like frostbite and gunpowder in the air!!!!
