REASONS TO ATTEND

The Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show is known in fishing and hunting circles as “the big one”. Entering its 47th year, it’s the largest sport show west of the Mississippi, and largest consumer or trade show in the Northwest. It’s big! Celebrate the great outdoors and join us for 5 days of the biggest and best at the Portland Expo Center, February 16-20, 2022. This is by no means a complete list but here are a few reasons to spend your time at the show…enjoy!

  1. Leupold. As the world’s preeminent hunting and outdoor optics manufacturer. We’re grateful for their support. Be sure to stop by their booth for a rundown on what’s new and any questions you may have on any of their scopes, binoculars or range finders. Leupold is also offering show-only specials as well as stocking some hard-to-find products not commonly found at local retailers. 
  2. Randy Newberg. Celebrated hunter and public lands and public access advocate, Randy Newberg, is joining us this year. We’re thrilled! He’ll be at the show and delivering a daily Q&A session on hunting elk on public lands. This is a special opportunity for local hunters to connect with one of the world’s best. Randy’s skilled, accessible, easy-to-talk-to and helpful. 
  3. Brett Stoffel. Survival expert Brett Stoffel, sponsored by your local Toyota Dealers, is conducting daily classes and he’s also at the Toyota booth the entire show. His expertise has saved the lives of those that have attended his classes in the past. Learn to make fire under the most difficult conditions. Learn survival basics and what you should always have with you or in your vehicle anytime you venture into the backcountry.
  4. Sportsmen’s Food Court. This year for the first time, we’re proud to feature Hill Meat Company as the purveyor of dogs and brats. They are a third generation Oregon company and we are excited to welcome them to the Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show. The Sportsmen’s Food Court is sponsored by Hill Meat Company and Franz/US Bakery.
  5. Head & Horns above the rest.  Want to be impressed? Even if you don’t hunt you have to check these bodacious trophies out, they’re well worth seeing. If you do hunt you’ll be blown away by the size of some of the mounts. And if you have a set of horns, antlers or a head that you’d like measured and scored this is the place to bring it. We have folks certified to measure and score your trophy and if it’s a winner the prizes are incredible! It’s $10 to have your trophy measured and $30 if you want to enter the competition. Special thanks to Leupold, Fort Knox, RMEF, Gerber, Danner, Rage, Muzzy and Ruger, as the sponsors of this popular show feature. 
  6. The Bass Lake. Sponsored by Old Town, the Bass Lake is a first-ever feature for the Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show. It’s the only place in the west you’ll find tournament-groomed kayak anglers delivering classes in their kayaks all day long on this little manmade pond that’s stocked with bass and panfish. Bass fishing from kayaks is on a huge upswing in popularity in the NW. You’ll find the Bass Lake in “C” Hall.
  7. Special evening events. A first-ever for the show, four evening events are scheduled starting with Born & Raised Outdoors on Wednesday night featuring the entire Born & Raised crew. They’ll be conducting a Q&A along with fun from the team. Thursday it’s Addicted Fishing with their movie “King’s Return”. This is a ticketed event and it’s amazing! This will be sold out by showtime. Friday and Born & Raised Outdoors is back with an elk calling workshop. Perfect! Because all day Friday it’s “Elk Day” at the show! And Saturday we’re pleased to welcome Leif Steffny, the host of the wildly popular YouTube Channel, NW Fishing Secrets!!! All of these evening events start at 7PM in the Sportsmen’s Adventure Theater in the back of “B” Hall. Doors open at 6:30. Get there early if you want a seat. 
  8. Ammo Sale! Stock up at Bi-Mart and Grizzly Cartridge Company booths at the Pacific Northwest Sportsmen’s Show.  There’s too many different calibers and gauges to list but if you’re looking you should be covered at this sale.

  9. Fistful of Cheaters. Everyone wins with Toyota’s Fistful of Cheaters! It’s easy and it’s free! Just go to the Toyota booth, sign-up and get in line.

  61. Oregon fishing. No matter your skill level, it’s always a nice treat to have someone else do the work for a day. All you have to do is show-up with your license and leave the prep work and driving to someone else. Especially, when that “someone else” happens to be one of the top fishing guides in the region. You can’t miss with these great choices. Steve Leonard, of Steve’s Guided Adventures, Jack and Brandon Glass of Team Hook-Up, 168 Fishing Adventures, Cameron Black (Gone Catchin’), Twisted Waters Guide Service and Jody Smith are all leading names in Oregon fishing and you’ll enjoy a wonderful day of fishing and fun with any one of them.

  66. We’ve got the boat brands.  From heavy gauge welded aluminum and lighter gauge riveted and welded aluminum to inflatables and fiberglass the names you know will be at this year’s boat show. Boats have been in short supply but you’ll find plenty here. 
  67. Wiser Precision. Wiser Precision has a line of trekking poles that doubles as a mount for a gun rest, spotting scopes and cameras. Built-to-last but feather-light, Wiser offers this and an assortment of attachments. Give them a warm welcome by stopping and checking out their line of products. 
  68. Jody Smith. Not only is Jody one of Oregon’s busiest guides, he’s also one of our class speakers. Here’s your chance to book early and not miss an opportunity to fish or hunt the picturesque and storied Umpqua area. Jody truly does it all…salmon, steelhead, shad, smallmouth bass, surf perch, sturgeon, elk, deer and turkey — and he’s considered one of the West’s top talents for all of them. Any one of these is a bucket-list trip…he’ll be at the show all five days — bring your calendar and book a trip. 
  69. What are the optics? Leupold, Osprey, Tract Optics, Maven, Novagrade, Quigley Ford and Swarovski Optik North America are all must-stop booths if you’re interested in optics like scopes, spotting scopes and binoculars.

  70. Packs. In the market for a pack? Especially if you’re looking for the perfect pack for hunting, this is the place you’ll find it. Here’s a few great companies (maybe more) that will have packs for sale at the show. Rokman, Rockagator and Wilderness Pack Specialties are all here. These folks will help you carry the load…comfortably. 
  71. Spirits. Nothing like a sportsmen’s show to showcase new and innovative adult beverages. There’s a few, but just like the spirits, in moderation — we have just enough distillers to keep it interesting and fun. 
  72. Bejeweled! Between Classic Creations, Wilderness Mint and Timber Fox Traders – Navajo Jewelry, there’s some world-class, outdoor-themed jewelry coming to the show.  Stunningly beautiful work, this jewelry is heirloom quality that can be shared for generations.
