Whether you’re looking to book a duck hunt in Chincoteague, a white-tailed deer hunt in Illinois, game preserve pheasant hunting in Pennsylvania, or meet Innerloc Out-There TV host Corey Brossman, you can find them all at one site Aug. 27-28 during the 11th annual Lehigh Valley Hunting and Fishing Extravaganza at the Kempton Fairgrounds in Kempton, Pa.
Sportsmen, sports women and children can take advantage of the opportunity not only to try introductory skills and hone up on their current ones, but they also have the chance to book hunts and learn more about their passionate pursuit of the Great Outdoors from some of the true experts in the hunting and fishing world.
And, there’s a Saturday Hunting & Fishing Flea Market where you can add to your current gear collection, or start your first outdoors gear collection at bargain prices!
From Brossman, a Reading native, to Orefield native Josh Day’s Whack ‘Em Guide Service for fishing in New York’s stellar Salmon River, the Lehigh Valley Hunting and Fishing Extravaganza not only introduces newcomers to our proud outdoors heritage, but offers everyone the chance to try some of the skills like archery, shotgunning and more, and then book a trip to put them to use in helping conservation throughout Pennsylvania and the United States.
Plenty of exhibitors will be on hand this weekend to get you set up to start or continue your outdoors pursuits.
Some of the exhibitors that will be in the indoor buildings include Weaknecht Archery, Parker Bows, Prime Hunting Bows, BowTech , Elite, Hoyt, Easton, TenPoint Crossbows and more.
Brossman, whose show is televised on the Sportsman’s Channel, will be running a Umarex BB Gun shoot on Saturday for the kids, with the top shooter winning a BB gun. Prizes are available for everyone.
Whitetail Action Outfitter from Illinois and Josh Day will also have indoor booths, along with B&J Outfitters from Maryland, which offers deer and waterfowl hunts.
Also indoors, Martz Game Farm, Big Daddy Fishing Rods, Bone Brothers dipping and European mount service, Kermit Kistler Polaris, and Zawada Pole Barns will be displaying their wares.
The Flea Market is bulging at its seams. If one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, bring along a few extra bucks to get in on a rich array of used and “experienced” outdoor gear of all sorts in the Outdoorsmen’s Flea Market, to be held Saturday. Last year’s sale of hunting, fishing, camping, trapping, scouting, and military related items sold like crazy. Our list of flea market venders is growing daily. Registration cost is $20 per section. Check the show website at www.lvhfe.com to register.
Outdoors exhibitors include Rothrock Motor Sales, GC Lumber, Humphrey’s Hydraulics, Grub’s Clay Birds, Dogs of War Vietnam history buffs, a chainsaw carver, Lehigh Valley GOP, tomahawk throwing, Oley Valley Sportsmen’s Club, and the NRA will have a tent to do memberships sign-ups and renewals.
