Re: no bus from bass pro to sportsman show
Smart move on bass pros part as far as I am concerned. Why choke the store parking and store itself full when 90% of those people arent going to spend a dime. It keeps a customer like me who would rather go to bass pro than the show from going.
I actually said to my buddy who wanted to go "Im not going unless we also go to bass pro"
I can see more of what I want inside one store than the entire outdoors show. We will see if they really took comments to heart this year with their changed format.
I get tired of seeing the same old junk... yeah I said junk at that show every year. The rod manufacturers, the bow manufactures, the actual treestand manufacturers are never there. Its some hole in the wall archery shop representing them who has one bow or one sight that if they happened to sell it you cant even look at it. Thats not a show!
As it stood last year if you werent there to buy a boat or book a trip you wasted your time, money and energy to see a repeat of the prior ten years.
What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!
