I am planning on going tomorrow afternoon for a little bit, I have been to it once before, it is fun to look and dream! Some good booths for resorts as well.

Definately worth going if you are window shopping, dreaming or need a place to chase the winter blues away from your kids.

The seminars they have are nice and informational, especially the dog training one with Jason Dommeyer, but they seem to have a lot more seminars a few years ago as compared to now.

Admission is about $6, 12 and under-free, I believe. I bit pricey in my book considering what they got/offer. But my kid love to go and check out all the boats and campers and then tries to help me persuade his mother that we need it when we get home... :-)

Hey all,

Had to go out the Sport and Vacation Show this afternoon and shoot video of it for future commercial/promotion use. Got a chance to look around a bit between camera setups.

Looks to be a good show, IMO

In fact KTTC did a live shot for their 6 pm news there tonight. Randy B was talking to the guy who is pitching the new small lightweight airplanes that you can buy for 100k and do't need an aviation license to fly it. I also saw there a motorized snowboard that looked kinda fun to tool around in and a few other booths I wouldn't mind looking into further.

Still would like to see more on the seminar list but the managing whitetails on small acres looked very interesting!

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
