Does anyone know anything about this show? I am wondering if it is waterfowl show.

Dave, it's just a hunting/fishing show. Not huge like Harrisburg, Pa..........But bigger than a lot of other shows I've been to. Not a lot of waterfowl stuff to look at either. It's geared more toward the big game hunters. Last year there were a couple of TDB boats there and only one waterfowl supply vendor. BUT! The calling contest alone will make the trip worth it.!

Thanks for the heads up Josh. I assume you will be there. Any idea on what to do for a one man meat contest. We had a CT meat contest one time that me and my partner won but that was 2 man. I assume its a regular routine that is scaled down in volume. What will ya blow in it? Im thinking my Daisy cutter. Kinda torn between that and my pure duck.

Well, the turn-out should be HUGE! Because of the $1000 prize for the goose calling contest, there will be a lot of callers attending. The duck prizes are awesome as well. As far as a routine............I'm not sure if I should lend any help to my potential competition!!:OUCH: HEHEHEHE!!! Actually, I talked to the guy running it, and he said basically there aren't any set rules (other than a few required hen mallard sounds) and that you can call just like you would in your blind. I asked about ringing hails, and he said again "use what you would in your own blind". I doubt highly that you will hear anyone doing that though!! I haven't decided on what call to use, but it will be a BGB, seeing how that's all I own! If you need directions or anything else about the show, just let me know. Josh.
