Come one come all to Frederick, Maryland for the 4th Annual NRA hunting show
Fairfax, Virginia - We're just over a week away from the 4th Annual NRA Great American Hunting & Outdoor Show. Returning to the Frederick Fairgrounds in Frederick, Maryland, the show definitely bigger and even better than last year. If you're a hunting and outdoors enthusiast in the mid-Atlantic states, you're going to want to be in line January 25th. The show is also a great place to bring the whole family; it's free for kids 9 and under.
Several of our great NRA programs will have booths at the show, like Women On Target Hunts, the NRA Training Department, the National Firearms Museum, Maryland Friends of NRA and more. This may be our show, but we aren't the only ones there. On the floor you'll also find firearms manufacturers, guide services, outfitters, hunting equipment, taxidermists just to name a few. Between all the booths and seminars lined up, there's something for everyone.
Want to see some great trophies? How about the Great American Whitetail Collection, a display of 15 of the world's highest-scoring whitetails mounts. If you have an impressive mount of your own, you can enter the Mason/Dixon Big Buck Contest. Sponsored by Cabela's, the highest-scoring trophies will walk away with some neat awards. Any deer enthusiast present will have plenty to oggle, that's for sure.
Seminars and Q&A sessions will run through the entire weekend. Michael Waddell from Outdoor Channel's Bone Collector is just one of the great guests you'll be able to meet.
What's there for the kids? How about the Laser Shot video game shooting system or the Lil' Hunter Scavenger Hunt.
Visit the NRA Great American Hunting & Outdoor Show website for all the important details including, directions, admission, seminar schedule and the exhibitor list. Like last year, NRAblog will be reporting live from the show. If you see us, be sure to say "hi."
The show runs 1 to 7 on Friday, 9 to 7 on Saturday and 9 to 5 on Friday. NRA members (with their membership cards) get in for $8.00 and the general public gets in for $10.00. And, should the opportunity arise, anyone who purchases an NRA Membership at the show receives a free weekend pass.
