Trail Camera Contest
A great trail camera photo can change everything for a hunter. It'll set in motion a game plan, an obsession... an infatuation sometimes. The camera will be the eyes you never had, and an opportunity to gain important intel for the next hunt.
We're excited to give the Open Season Sportsman’s Expo attendees a chance to WIN great prizes for sharing their favorite trail camera photo! Users will submit their favorite photo online with added incentive to share it socially. Open Season Sportsman’s Expo Series will also share submissions online and via all social media platforms for the entire audience to experience these unique shots.
Archery Trick Shooting
The energetic performance of the Archery Trick Shot Show, featuring Byron Ferguson, will leave you wondering how these shots are even possible.
This energetic performance Byron Ferguson uses a traditional bow and his instinctive reactions to pull off shots like hitting a flying target blindfolded. Byron became infatuated with the bow and arrow at the age of 12 and began working as a bricklayer's helper to earn money to purchase his first recurve. Now famous for his coin trick, Byron once shot eight dimes in a row out of the air. He uses no sights or other gadgets when he shoots. Slitting a playing card in half - from the side - is one of Byron's favorite tricks.
