Thanks to our friends in Central Oregon who overcame “record snowfall” to attend the Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Show presented by Leupold. And thanks to the support of the community and fairgrounds staff, mountains of snow were moved so we could have show.
For those that made the trip to Redmond it was a wonderful show. The Cowboy Fast Draw proved to be a hit along with the addition of the Oregon Bow Hunters State Indoor Archery Shoot. In spite of the snow, RV dealers brought hundreds of RV’s to the grounds and by Saturday with parking lots filled with cars and the grounds filled with show-goers, RV sales were strong. Boats, ATV’s, guided fishing trips and hunts, knick-knacks, custom furniture, tackle and snacks all proved to be popular items.
Plans are underway for next year’s show. Expect to see new features along with re-tooled and updated popular favorites. With later dates for the 2020 show we’re hopeful weather will not be a factor, having that much snow was a one-in-118 year event, so we have some time before it happens again. Check back later this year for updates to the website and show. Thank you!

Another newcomer to the Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Show is Walleye Alley. Just added this year, this feature includes a 5,000 gallon portable fish tank filled with several impressive walleye and the tackle and information needed to catch them. Walleye Willie will be giving seminars on how-to catch Columbia River walleye and Bi-Mart will have the tackle needed available for purchase close-by. This particular feature in previous shows this year has been a huge hit.
This year’s Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Show seminar line-up is better than ever with names like Scott Haugen, Walleye Willie and Arnie Gidlow headlining, along with local favorites Gary Lewis, Blake Miller and John Garrison. There’s something for everyone from beginner to advanced anglers, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts with dozens of seminars daily. Blake Miller’s Wilderness Survival seminar is a must-attend for anyone spending time outdoors and off-road. Geoff Wallaston’s Routine and Basic Boat Maintenance can save you time, money and frustration in servicing your boat. The good folks from Tumalo Creek Kayak can get you started kayak fishing while Ryan Sparks demonstrates the tactics and techniques necessary in catching hard-fighting smallmouth bass. And if you’re considering taking your horses on an extended adventure, you can trust the guidance you’ll gain from the experts at Steen Wilderness Adventures and their seminars on horse and mule packing techniques.
The Cowboy Fast Draw returns to the Central Oregon Sportsmen’s Show bigger and better than ever! Shooters compete against each other to see who can hit the target first using pistols loaded with wax bullets. It’s great fun and free with admission into the show. Special thanks to the Crooked River Rangers, Oregon’s only Cowboy Fast Draw Club, for their support in providing the onsite experts to oversee everyone shooting.
Baxter Auto Parts Kid’s Trout Pond is back and will be loaded with willing trout ready to be caught by kids 12 and younger. There’s a two fish limit and all the gear needed is provided. Kids never know what’s going to bite but the trout are thick and feisty with a few that will tip the scales in excess of 5 pounds and even bigger! The trout pond is one of the memories kids carry with them their entire lives and the experience has been responsible for firing the enthusiasm of kids to get out and fish more after they’ve felt the tug of a trout in this venerable pool. Thanks to Baxter Auto Parts, the Kid’s Trout Pond is free with admission into the show.
Billed as “a show within the show”, the RV and boat sale has become a popular feature with hundreds of RV’s and dozens of boats making their way to the Deschutes County Fair & Events Center. RV and boat shoppers are afforded the opportunity to see a variety of models side-by-side and enjoy the show savings that includes Selco Credit Union’s on-site financing and special show-only rates. It’s a rare four day opportunity that makes boat and RV shopping easy and effective.
