I read negative comments often regarding the sportsman show and thought the event could use a review from someone who enjoys it. This year I spent one full day there and could not have been more satisfied with the day. I got some new information regarding an up coming spring bear hunt that has changed my hunting spot significantly (that alone was worth the door price). I went to one of the seminars and learned a few new tricks. I talked to adfg about the new reg changes for next year and got quality face time with them to answer several questions. Talked to various transporters about there service. Bought a couple hunting items new to me ect ect. Theres more to my day but you get the picture. Just like everything else in life it's all about what you put into it. It's a great show and if you haven't gone before go check it out next year lots of good stuff going on there.
