Thanks, Justin! For a full listing of upcoming stops for the Great American Hunters Tour, visit their website.

As we wrote earlier, NRA staffers Eric Lipp and Jon Draper headed to the Dulles Expo Center this past weekend for a taste of adventure at the Nation’s Outdoor Sportsmen Show. The NRA’s Great American Whitetail Collection joined exhibits from Suburban Whitetail Management of Northern Virginia, Swan Mountain Outfitters, and the National Wild Turkey Federation, among others.

"I would say there were a lot of fishing outfitters and gear, but a pretty good mix of hunting and fishing gear," Draper said. "We had a good time. It seemed to feature plenty of big-game hunting outfitters offering trips to hunt elk and bear. They've got some really great stuff that any sportsman could use"

Of interest to many Show goers was a display of hunting dogs. "A kennel club with a bunch of puppies, and they were demonstrating a few training seminars with the puppies and with adult labrador retrievers," Draper said.



Nation's OUtdoor Sportsmen's Show

The Dulles Expo Center is home to more than the Nation's Gun Show. If you're in the greater northern Virginia area between January 23 and 25, stop in and see the Nation's Outdoor Sportsmen's Show.

In addition to seminars on topics ranging from fly flshing to big game hunting, you'll have the chance to stroll an exhibit hall and view the NRA's Great American Whitetail Collection.

The event takes place in the North Hall, and the hours are as follows: Friday, 3pm - 8pm; Saturday, 9am - 8pm; and Sunday, 10am - 5pm. Admission is free for kids under 12, $5 for kids ages 12 to 17, $10 for adults, and $15 for a 3-day pass.

When rounding corners at NRA Headquarters, you never quite know what might be looking back at you! This is particularly true in the center hallway of the sixth floor of our south tower where the following warning can be found:

CAREFUL LEFTHAND TURN ONLY

The reason for such a caution? Because around the corner rests a portion of the NRA Great American Whitetail Collection – a beautiful display of replicated antlers. The replications featured here are some of the most famous, highest-scoring whitetail mounts in America. According to Dick Idol, noted whitetail expert, “The NRA Great American Whitetail Collection represents a replicated collage of the greatest whitetails in the world and epitomizes the dreams of every whitetail hunter in North America.” More

Justin McDaniel at NRAHuntersRights.org brings us the following:

In 2006, while hunting on private farmland near his home in southern Charles County, Md., Bill Crutchfield, Jr., killed a non-typical whitetail buck that he and his friends thought might rival the Maryland state record.

As it turns out, the previous record — a more-than-respectable 228 4/8-inch non-typical buck taken in Montgomery County by Jack Poole in 1987 — never stood a chance against the bruiser Crutchfield bagged on the third day of Maryland’s modern firearms season that year. The Crutchfield buck, with its 28 scorable points, was certified at 268 1/8 inches by Boone and Crockett, making it the largest buck ever killed in Maryland — and the entire East Coast, for that matter.
