Re: no bus from bass pro to sportsman show

My kids enjoy the show, and I take them every year. I take a good strong daypack with room for their coats (and mine), and room for water bottles in large quantities!

whats funny is he used to work at bass pro too! im sure bass pro will still get the foot traffic it usually does as a result of the show but atleast it shouldn't clog their parking lot and store like it has in the past

I always enjoyed going to the show but this is how I started to feel about it also. We used to go every year, but probably stopped going 10-12 years ago for this very reason. Would be nice if they'd limit the number of outfitters there trying to get you to sign up for trips. [/quote]

Just don't know how to respond to this.....are you really serious?

Why? Who would that benefit? The more outfitters, the better selection.

I usually spend 3 hours max, but the year I knew I was going on an elk hunt, I was there from Opening till closing. This year I'll be with a group of guys as we look for an outfitter for a Caribou hunt, and also doing an elk hunt with another buddy.

Will be a long visit this year!
Just my opinion, but it's like looking for a car. Whoever throws the best sales pitch and price is probably the outfitter you're going to use. I would rather look for a hunting trip via outfitters that others I know have used, and read reviews. I find the show much more interesting for demo's and shows, rather than listening to people throw sales pitches to me.

Re: no bus from bass pro to sportsman show

To each their own but I absolutely love going to the show. I spend two full days there every year. I for one wish there were more outfitters. Call me selfish but that's why I go! Have booked numerous trips there over the years and I always enjoy seeing the owners and guides that I've hunted with.

Re: no bus from bass pro to sportsman show

I saw a billboard in Philly the other day advertising an Amtrak excursion special to the show, with a shuttle from the train station and discounted tickets. http://www.patripsbytrain.com/easter...tdoor-show-02/ If you live near an Amtrak station, it might be less stress.
