Well that's a bummer. I'm a Saturday only again this time.


Maybe one of these years we should put together a "16 Gauge" booth with a variety of nice 16 gauge shotguns to display and 16 Gauge Society goodies for sale. We could sit and BS all day! When I semi-retire in a couple years I would have time to do this.

Ouch. The Falcons definitely deserve to be where they are.

If any of you guys who are attending the show Saturday want to sell a shooter quality Fox, let me know!

It took a couple days for my green and gold blood to stop bleeding, but I'm now pulling for the Falcons in the Super Bowl. It's their year I believe and I hope they hammer the Patriots!

+1, Dave. I heard that of all the people pulling for the Falcons, 3% are actual Falcons fans and the other 97% are people who dislike the Patriots. 😜

The website is up to date with schedule, etc.

https://www.pheasantsforever.org/Pheasant-Fest/2017-Showguide.aspx

Of you guys who have gone to this before, is there any of the vendors that would have the ability to do custom gun fitting or measuring?

I went the last time it was in Minneapolis, 5-6 years ago. I do not recall any shotgun fitters there.

I was reviewing the schedule and didn't see any presentations of great interest to me. Maybe it's just me as I continue to fade away from phez and spend my time in the grouse woods but the topics didn't spark any interest.

It will be interesting to see if the event attracts the 30k people they are expecting.

I went about 2 years ago when it was in Des Moines. I was glad I went and experienced the event but one in done is likely for me at a 2 plus hours trip.

Not owning my own dog or land quite a bit of it didn't apply to me. I did enjoy the gun fitting class and starters class I attended. The booth walk was a lot of fun too.
