We went yesterday and it was packed to the gills! Seemed like there were more dealers there this year. Not as many deer heads to look at, but there were some nice ones there! Oddest one was a mount from 1968, deer looked nothing like the deer of today. Alot of new gimmics out there to see and some new bows there but you better have the $$$$ if you want to buy one.
Funny thing was the outfitters, pricing is getting ridiculous!! One outfit here in Ohio wants $3000 for a 5 day hunt--:crazy: And yes it is a high fence, and if you kill a 190 or above it goes to $9600:mg:, There are some good deals to be had if you really look.
The best thing there though was Ralph & Vicki Cianiarulo-Achers choice! these people are the most down to earth people I've every met. They gave a great seminar and it was not about beating their own drum! They discussed the future of hunting-future generations-and the explosion of female hunters.
They are very people oriented and don't talk down to you and they really enjoyed having kids come to their booth and take pics. They love cutting on each other all the time!!!
Well that's my 2 cents and If you went I hope you enjoyed the show!!
