Western Washington’s
ONLY Sportsmen’s Show

Washington’s biggest and brawniest sportsmen’s show–the Washington Sportsmen’s Show® –opens January 22 with a packed line-up of family-friendly attractions, new expert speakers and past crowd-pleasers at the Washington State Fair Events Center.

Western Washington’s only sportsmen’s show runs January 22 – 26 and spotlights the one-of-a-kind indoor “Steelhead River,” over 150 hours of free “how to” seminars, camp cooking demonstrations, the Kid’s Free Trout Pond, the “Head & Horns” competition and much more.

It’s the perfect time to begin planning outdoor adventures with professional guides, outfitters and other resources to assist in making fishing, hunting and wildlife-watching trips a reality.

Show highlights include:

  • The largest outdoor adventure show in the state offers a one-stop shopping experience, with great values on fishing and hunting gear, clothing, camping equipment, sport fishing boats and RV’s . If you’re planning a special adventure for 2014, it’s an opportunity to meet face-to-face with top professional guides and outfitters, and representatives from leading hunting and fishing lodges and resorts.
  • New to the show is the “Cowboy Fast Draw” presented by Les Schwab, where showgoers of all experience levels are invited to step up to a special range with classic Colt 45 style six-guns, vintage holsters and special wax bullets, says Cal Eilrich (a.k.a. Quick Cal), the colorful director of the Cowboy Fast Draw Association and a 17-Time World Fast Draw Champion.
  • For anglers, this show boasts new luminaries and returning favorites sharing their tips for producing “tight lines” during your next fishing adventure. Headliners include legendary sportfishing industry leader Gary Loomis introducing his high-performance Edge Fishing Rods; fishing Hall-of-Famer Buzz Ramsey; flyfishing expert Jim Teeny;  the father-son guide team of Jack and Brandon Glass; radio and television host Tom Nelson; steelhead tips from Scott Haugen; Hevi-Beads co-founder Loren Dunbar; “College Fishing Series” veteran and bass expert Nick Barr; and others.
  • With prizes on the line, the show’s “Head & Horns” competition attracts upwards of 200 heads, horns or horn/antler sheds brought to the show by showgoers. The entries are measured and scored by Boone and Crockett and Pope and Young representatives at no charge. Prizes are awarded for all three methods of harvest: rifle, archery and black powder; the deadline for entries is 8:00 pm Saturday, Jan. 25. This always popular competition is made possible through sponsorship support by Fort Knox Safes, Bushnell Outdoor Products, Ruger, ATK/Federal Premium Ammunition and Les Schwab.
  • The youngsters aren’t left out of the action: the “Kid’s FREE Trout Pond” provides kids 12 and under with the opportunity to catch-and-keep or release two trout.  Sponsored by Baxter Auto Parts, the pond is stocked with thousands of trout. All the gear is provided at no charge—including fishing poles, bait and take-home bags.
  • Wilderness survival and outdoor safety expert Peter Kummerfeldt returns to the show for his 19th year with a rucksack full of new and updated presentations.  Presented by Toyota, they include the popular “Procuring Wild Foods” in survival situations, “Making Water Safe to Drink” and “Wilderness Medicine”—where he urges “medical basic training” for outdoor enthusiasts.
  • The “Fred Meyer Camp Cooking Tent” returns as celebrity camp cooks share tasty recipes for easy-to-prepare meals.  Camp Chef and Franz support the fun as Herb Good, Tiffany Haugen and Dutch Oven guru “Cee Dub” Welch prepare tasty, no-fuss recipes in hourly presentations all five days of the show.
