The first-ever kokanee tank makes its Central Oregon debut at the Sportsmen’s Show. The Bi-Mart kokanee tank presented by Mack’s Lures features dozens of catchable size kokanee salmon in a specially-built, thermostatically-controlled tank. This is the first time kokanee have ever been raised to this size in a hatchery environment and then transported for display and demonstration purposes.
Les Schwab Tires brings the Cowboy Fast Draw back to the Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Show. This has been a popular, fun attraction that measures just how quick a trigger-finger people have. Using wax bullets, participants are timed in how quickly they can hit the target.
It’s a show-within-a-show with the area’s largest RV sale on-site at the Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Show. With 13 dealers and acres of display space, it’s an ideal opportunity to land a great deal on a new RV. Selco Community Credit Union will be on-site offering show-only rates and financing. Several boat dealers are bringing their inventory to the fairgrounds too with fishing, ski and pleasure boats all expected to be displayed and for sale. With so many brands in one place, it’s an opportune time to shop, compare and buy.
The Head & Horns competition returns with several impressive, record-setting antlers, horns and heads already logged in this year’s sweep across the northwest. Hunters that would like their horns measured can bring them to the show and for $10 they’ll be measured and scored. If they meet the minimum requirements they may be a winner and eligible for entry into the competition for another $20. The prizes for top winners are well worth the entry fee including a Fort Knox gun safe, Ruger rifle or any one of several other prizes provided by Gerber, Les Schwab, Final Approach, Federal Premium, Danner, and Bushnell. The competition is also open to entries from past hunts that may be unscored, unknown and gathering dust in an attic, garage or family room…those can be entered too. More than one “a-ha” moment has been inspired by a forgotten set of horns that came into the show and raised eyebrows.
