So if any of you happen to be there, I'll be the kid with the camo winchester hat, Max-4 Nodak Outdoors shirt, and a lanyard with 3 calls and a band. I'll also be blowing in the youth calling contest.. See ya'll there..

There having a bunch of Reps from defferent companys.. example, Avery, Zink, Foiles ( I belive).. And there having different things going on all day.. Any thing from duck calling comps to calling demos to seminars on goose and duck hunting.. It sounds like a pretty big deal... Yah I might hunt the morning flight for dove and then head over to heartland about 9:30.. The calling contest starts at 10:00 am.. I hope to see someone from the fourm there.

Any idea what kind of deals they are gonna have. Can't stand to go to Cabelas on that weekend. Too many city guys that call themselves hunters walking around in them places.

I have been by the place up there, but have never stopped. Is the store pretty nice? Do they have a website showing the events and times? I would like to go and see the calling contests, even though not going to sign up as we would have birds flying in from everywhere!:) Not really, as I am new to all of this hunting stuff, anyway just wasn't sure if it all was running all weekend or not? Would be great to get to meet all of the KS Hunting forum members!

Gander Mountain opens up in September too I think...but I will definitely try to make it to Hutchinson on the 3rd. Will have some family up to hunt dove on a private pond near my house. Know any good bars in Hutch? Might as well get the most out of the trip.

Talked to them today. Here are a few of the deals

10% off Layout blinds (Migrator, Finisher)

$180 for a Gooseview destroyer (they guy says this blind is the stuff, and I agree. Wish I wouldn't have already bought an Xlander

30% off Carrylite decoys (almost at cost for him. He is getting out of carrylites

10% off duck and goose calls (if you go check out a Mick Lacy single reed. Come in a regular container and they are molded acrylic. Should be around $20. I have one and love it)
No deals on steel shot though.

Every thing went pretty sweet for me.. I placed 1st in there duck calling comp. They had some pretty good deals going on.
20 bucks for half doz carry lite usually like 30 some. Some othere things I didn't even look at. I didn't see anyone I knew there from the board, but I could have saw them I didn't know...
