The State Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, was teeming with people this past weekend for the Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show. Attendees packed into the show hall to see the latest in hunting, fishing, shooting and outdoor gear and services. Hunt outfitters from all over the world were on hand to promote their hunts with game ranging from alligators to zebras.
The NRA was also at the show with two separate booths. NRA’s Hunter Services Department manned a booth (pictured above) to showcase the Great American Whitetail Collection and promote all that NRA does for hunters. Bob Davis, Manager of Hunter Services, told NRA Blog about the traffic at the show. “There’s been a steady flow of people, but the weekends are the busiest!” said Davis. The booth also had a variety of hunting and outdoor gear available for purchase.
Across the show was NRA’s Membership booth (pictured on the right), which was swarmed with people wanting to sign up or renew their memberships. Special membership promotions were available for the show, including a free t-shirt for anyone joining or renewing, as well as $10 off a regular one-year membership. NRA staff and local volunteers helped to sign up or renew more than 2,400 people!
