  2. Possibly. I went last year for the first time and i would have rather seen booths with new gear, etc than all the outfitters but it was a good time.

  3. I go every year, I love the trophy area. Its mostly outfitters, but its still fun.

  4. I'll be there Saturday. I'll be the guy in the camo hat.
    I like to look at the trophies, talk to other hunters and learn something new. Usually watch Byron shoot. Always a good time .

  5. Nope I said last year I will never go back to many rude people in that place to much shoving and pushing for me
  6. I’ll be going either Saturday morning or Sunday morning. Not sure which one yet bc I’m on midnight shift that weekend ! There are a lot of rude people there but I like looking at all the trophies our state produces!

  7. Like most things, "It used to be better". If you go Saturday afternoon - prepared to be elbow to elbow with everyone.
  8. Sunday was always the day I went in the past. Usually had good last minute deals and it wasn't too bad as I recall. I'll be there on Sunday this time as well.

  9. XOP sold me 3 of their hangons for $50 each on sunday afternoon couple years ago. They have been great stands! You can wheel and deal on sunday afternoon for sure!
  10. Nope put on by Donner Corp. isn’t that associated with field & stream? Signed up with an outfitter to hunt bear in Maine what a shafting. That was 2yrs ago that was enough for me.
  11. what happen with the outfitter?
  12. Bonnier - owns (among others) Field and Stream and Outdoor Life Magazines. They have no relationship with Field and Stream/Dicks stores.

    Used to be On Target Productions, until Glenn H sold it to Bonnier. Never had great interactions with On Target.

    I'm curious about the problems with the outfitter too?

  15. They didn’t tell me about the road until I paid, didn’t tell me about the shack we stayed in,almost had to tie r selves in bed to keep from fallin out. One end of shack was rotted out it dropped a foot in 8 feet, we were cold my son started a fire in the stove that ended real quick we had to evacuate or die of smoke inhalation. Never saw a bear, never saw anything but coyotes,stands were very small and all of them were leaning and loose. I can’t cook but compared to that cook I’m a chef. There is more but I need to shut up I don’t want to get into a peeing contest on here.
