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.
